How to choose a septic safe toilet paper

Roslyn McKay

If you have an alternative wastewater treatment system (AWTS), Aerobic Treatment Unit (ATU) or septic system you will need to carefully consider at all times what you are putting down your toilets and drains. Which toilet tissue is right for your situation?

Follow our five steps to choosing the best septic, AWTS and ATU safe toilet paper.

Step 1: Make sure your toilet paper contains no polymer glues (these contribute to the cause of blockages).

Step 2: Choose a toilet paper that is 100% recycled. Recycled material breaks down much quicker than virgin materials. 

Step 3: Ensure the toilet tissue you are flushing is safe for septic, long drop, composting toilet systems AWTS and ATU's such as Aquarius, AQ Aqua Nova, Biomax, Biosystems 2000, Graf ePro, Fujiclean and Taylex wastewater recycling systems.

Step 4: Do you live in an old building or are there periods where there is a high volume of people using the toilets and bathrooms? Is your sewerage system frequently smelly? Bioactive Toilet paper that has a probiotic built into the paper. Why should you use Bioactive Toilet paper? Bioactive contains microorganisms that clean the pipes on the way through helping to break down encrusted waste and organic substances present in the system.
