Cyprus has a very bad plumbing system because of which blockage of waste-disposal pipes has been observed multiple times island-wide. Moreover, the blockage of pipes in one house can create disturbance in another house. Hence, you cannot flush toilet papers in Cyprus.
Flushing the toilet paper in Cyprus isn’t a good practice to follow. If you are a guest at a nice hotel room, you might see that flushing the toilet paper down the toilet is sometimes allowed.
Even at that time, if a waste bin is provided, you should always throw the toilet paper in that bin.
If you are buying a nice house and have a better drainage system, even at that time you shouldn’t flush the toilet paper down.
Your house might be advanced and modern, but somewhere down the road, your pipes are definitely meeting other small and older sewage pipes. If they get blocked, your modern and advanced pipes are also definitely getting blocked.
Not only it clogs the drainpipe, but there are also other health hazards too. Flushing the toilet paper down the toilet can contaminate the water system which can eventually cause environmental damage.
Cleaning the clogged pipes are expensive as hell. You have to hire a professional and they will charge you a hell of a lot of money.
Buying a waste bin and throwing the toilet paper there is much more affordable and environmentally friendly.
Along with toilet paper, you shouldn’t also flush down a few more things in Cyprus.
Such as: Paper towels and tissues, Feminine products, Dental Floss, Hair, Bandages, Cigarettes, Cotton Balls, etc.
