Confused over whether 1-ply or 2-ply toilet tissue is safer for your recreational vehicle, boat, or home septic system? Traditionally thinner has been assumed to be better so 1-ply was the way to go. However, these days most 2-ply toilet papers will breakdown fairly easily because of environmental concerns coupled with technological advances. There is a simple test that you can perform to see if your preferred toilet tissue is marine, RV, and septic system friendly.
- Fill a clean, empty jar with water until it's 3/4 full
- Put 2-3 sheets of toilet paper into the jar of water
- Shake the jar for 30 seconds
If the toilet paper has started to shred or dissolve, it's safe to use in your recreational vehicle, boat, or home septic system.
