Plumbing clogs and blockages caused by flushing the wrong items can cause your toilet to back up. Call Billy the Sunshine Plumber for help.
You spent a great day yesterday at the Firestone Grand Prix in St. Petersburg only to find when you returned that your toilet had backed up and overflowed. You got it cleaned up and thought you had the situation solved but, today, the toilet isn’t working really well. You’e worried the toilet is about to back up again.
If you’re like a lot of homeowners, the problem stems from flushing so-called unflushables.
The city of Dunedin explains: “Items like wipes, cotton balls and dental floss may be labelled as ‘flushable,’ but they are not. These items do not break down like toilet paper in the wastewater system and cause clogs to form. These clogs will grow to create back-ups and overflows throughout the wastewater system.”
Dunedin offers a list of items that you should never flush:
- Baby and/or adult cleaning wipes
- Face masks
- Dental floss
- Cotton swabs and balls
- Feminine hygiene products (maxi pads, tampons and wrappers)
- Kitty litter
- Paper towels
Of course, sometimes accidents happen and things get flushed that should not. If you do get a clog or blockage you can’t fix on your own, then it’s time to call the trusted 24-hour, Tampa Bay plumbers at Billy the Sunshine Plumber.
