Cast Iron Pipes and Wet Wipes

We just had Roto Rooter cleanout out our main sewer line. The problem was wet wipes hanging up on the rough part of the cast iron sewer piper. Is there any preventative maintenance I can do to break down wet wipes?

Throw them in the garbage instead of the toilet. Also get a garbage with a lid.

Yeah... I don't know anything that would help your issue.

Maybe look around to see if there are things similar to wet wipes but that break down in the plumbing system (like toilet paper does).

The only thing that you supposed to put down a toilet is toilet paper, pee and poo, anything else and you will pay for it!

BTW Barfing would probably be o.k. also.
