The Charmin website notes that all of the company's toilet papers are considered safe for use in septic systems and are approved by Roto-Rooter plumbing company. All Charmin toilet paper is backed by the company's clog-free guarantee, which states that the company should refund the purchase price of the toilet paper if a customer's toilet clogs due to using Charmin.

The Angel Soft website notes that Angel Soft toilet paper and all other toilet papers manufactured by Georgia-Pacific Consumer Products, such as Quilted Northern Ultra, are safe for use in standard septic and sewer systems.

Scott Rapid Dissolving Tissue is designed specifically for use in septic systems, boats and RVs. The company claims that this toilet paper, which has been tested and approved by the Scott Clog Clinic, dissolves up to four times faster than the leading brands.
