Are the LOLA tampons safe to use when you have well water? More is it going to clog the sewage because of the tampons?
Tampons should not be flushed down a toilet whether using a public or well water system as they can damage the wastewater treatment facilities. To properly dispose of tampons or pads, you can wrap them in toilet paper and place them in the trash. Most public bathrooms have receptacles made specifically for this.
