Charmin causes lot's of problems with flushing. This poor little puppy didn't know what to do with the stash of TP that he found.

I Agree Completely with you, minixmush!!!
About two months ago, I switched to Charmin Ultra Plush 3-ply toilet paper. Since then, I have had the plumber here 3 times to clean out the sewer due to overflowing. He has pulled out what he says are paper towels each time. The second and third time he used the largest snake. I have a roommate and she says she only flushes toilet paper and so do I. He says someone is flushing paper towels or handi- wipes and that the toilet paper can't cause the blockage. If no one is flushing anything but toilet paper, could there be any other cause of the blockage. The house was built in 1920.
Charmin is almost certainly the culprit...as opposed to normal paper, it has some cotton in it and does not decompose. On an old home, the pipes are probably cast iron, and rough inside, so stuff catches. Switch to another TP, or for better hygiene, buy a bidet seat and forget the paper altogether.

I have found the house brand sold by Safeway called Softly works very well. It's 2 ply and causes no problems in flushing. I'm fairly certain other large chain stores have exactly the same product under their own house brand names. Beside working very well, it's less expensive than the highly advertised name brands.
