Hi guys! Well this one is a little awkward to ask, but I guess maybe one of you might have the answer; is it ok to flush toilet paper? I've lived and stayed in places in Latin America where flushing toilet paper would cause a major collapse in the septic tank. Could any one explain how it works in Bogota?

Well, in Bogotá in every major place (restaurants, malls, hotels, and most homes) it should be fine to flush the toilet paper, I never had had a bad experience. Although when they dont want you to throw the toilet paper in the toilet there's usually a sing (in public places of course). Hope this helps! a tip thoug, if it looks like an old, run-down small toilet it's proably best to throw it in a bin!

Oh my Gosh! I just realize that I didn't even explain myself properly, I meant in my house!! you know, living with kids they flush paper and are not really careful about that sort of thing, I was wondering more in terms of house ownership (rental) and avoiding frequent encounters with the plumbers.

Thank you for your answer and tip, though.
