Everyone in my area has their own septic system and several people have told me that Charmin bath tissue does not dissolve well in them and not to use it. Although the package says that Charmin is septic system safe, I'm wondering now. Does anyone here have experience--good or bad--with Charmin bath tissue in their septic systems?

Flushability is a wiggly concept, I understand some industry research and perhaps regulations in California are being developed to address this issue.

I personally hate "soft" toilet paper that falls apart, so I don't have a problem.

Another concern with "soft" toilet paper is that the softness comes from fibers from old growth forests: http://www.nytimes.com/2009/02/26/sc...26charmin.html
