Is My Toilet Tissue Safe for My Boat, RV, or Home Septic System?

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.
