What's the best loo roll? I'm sick of buying what looks like a fancy cushy one only to find it's mediocre at best.

Don't tell me wet wipes because I refuse to flush them or keep a bin full of shitty wet wipes in my toilet.

I'm rather fond of the Waitrose essential loo roll. You may have to fold two sheets to get the desired thickness but as far as my arsehole is concerned I'm wiping with angels wings.

The champagne colour option is also rather soothing in its own right.

Well, you could "look it up" as he already advised you to.

>Unfortunately, the majority of wipes on the market don’t biodegrade quickly enough to avoid clogging the pipes. According to Joe Munafo, a plumbing engineer with New York-based Dagher Engineering, even toilet paper - which is designed to biodegrade - can get caught in pipes with imperfections.

>“And the more durable the material is, the more likely it is to clog,” he adds. “If you’re flushing paper towels, you’re running a bigger risk than with toilet paper. And if you’re flushing wipes – even flushable wipes – the chance of a clog goes up.”

>According to experts at Thames Water, flushable wipes were a major factor in London’s notorious fatberg, a 15-ton lump of congealed grease that nearly flooded the city’s already stressed sewer system and took three weeks to dismantle in 2013. “We have 59,000 miles of sewer, and fat and wet wipes are the main partners in ‘sewer abuse’ crime,” spokesman Simon Evans told the Guardian at the time.

It should be obvious. If it's designed to stay together whilst wet, then it's not going to break up in the sewer. The whole system only works if the paper breaks up when wet. Otherwise chaos reigns.

I'd assume OFWAT would step in if there was a real problem.

I used to regularly liaise with Thames water, If they could get away with it they would double their price and make it that you should piss in the garden, all solid waste should be deposited in the bin and the water should be undrinkable and from a public well.

So the idea of them jumping on this to purely say 'we need more money, or to do less work' wouldn't shock me.

It's not just Thames Water, it's utilities companies (public and private) nationally and globally.

https://www.waterbriefing.org/home/water-issues/item/13116-uk-water-companies-complain-to-trading-standards-about-flushable-products?font-size=larger

>A global statement has now been signed by over 247 companies in over 18 countries outlining the water industry's current position regarding flushable labelled products. The international statement recommends that consumers must be given clear and unambiguous information about appropriate disposal methods of products.

Here's more from sources other than Natural News, Infowars, or the Guardian:

You've got it back to front. I think that it is sewage infrastructures responsibility to keep up with the needs of the society it serves. If those change then the infrastructure has a responsibility to adapt.

You can't flush regular toilet paper in Greece (at least on the islands that I've been on). Who's fault is that? the toilet paper manufacturers and the users, or the provider for not updating their standards?

How the fuck have needs changed? Did everyone grow a second more formidable arse that can only be cleaned with wet wipes?

Sewers are for waste and toilet paper, and it is not the responsibility of sewage companies to upgrade tens of thousands of miles of sewage pipes to accommodate the small portion of the population who insist on buying wipes and disposing of them incorrectly.

Well for one flushing toilet paper like in the example I mentioned.

for another the scale has changed there is more people then there used to be.

for a third various hygiene products that you wash down the sink.

for a forth the food that we eat has changed which has both an effect on what goes down the sink, and what goes down the loo.

But lets ignore all that and never update anything ever.

>>4221
I'm not a water company and I don't think quick dry cement has ever been used as a hygiene product before or is recommended as one. but if you want to get your arse stuck in 10 kilos of it you are more then welcome to do it in my house.

The only way for sewage infrastructure to reliably cope with wet wipes would be to fit a heavy-duty macerator for every household. My fag-packet maths says that would cost at least £14bn up front plus another couple of billion a year in upkeep, adding 10-20% to the average water bill.

How many people would be willing to pay a hundred quid a year for the right to flush wet wipes?

That isn't how infrastructure works. The benefits aren't returned to the provider but to society as a whole like how putting fluoride in water reduces the need for dentistry but the water company doesn't profit from that. They aren't supposed to be directly profitable but improve the lives of everyone using them. Say by ensuring their bottoms are nice and soft.
Which might have an indirect positive affect on various other things due to the sunnier disposition of society as a whole

In England the local authority decides to add fluoride, not the water company. Most water companies don't add fluoride.

But ignoring that, fluoride and the associated reduction in caries has a very measurable health and cost benefit. Wet wipes, not so much. At this point I'm starting to think you're having a laugh because all your arguments are leakier than the pipes of Thames Water.

The best toilet roll I've found is sold from Iceland. It makes sense they'd offer the best considering most of the foods they sell are reformed meats and the like. It's called 'Petal Soft Quilted' (see picture), embossed with a simple dotted, diagonal square grid. It's a decent price, about £3.50 for 9 rolls. It's miles better than any of the named brands I've used; 4 ply, doesn't bobble up or 'dust' (like Andrex) and absorbs liquids very well.

>>4200
I once watched a program on the BBC about how 'flushable' wetwipes aren't actually so; just more flushable than non-flushable ones, yet they still cause significant blockages. Basically they don't break down like toilet roll does.

This article goes into how INDA and EDANA flushability standards are bollocks and governments and sewage companies are fighting these trade associations in order to make stop them labelling these wet wipes as flushable when they aren't.
