Backup | Billy the Sunshine Plumber

Billy the Sunshine Plumber will help you if you have a sewer backup in your home.

With rain predicted today and tomorrow, you’re planning to stick around your home. But, once the weather clears, you plan to take advantage of the cooler temperatures for a morning out at Anclote Key Preserve.

Well, that is what you’re planning to do provided your plumbing cooperates. Recently, all your drains have been a bit slow and you think some water backed up into your tub this morning. You plunged the drain, and think you got the clog, but you’re going to keep a close eye on things just in case.”

It does sound as if you might have had a small backup. According to Economical Insurance, a backup happens when “something blocks the normal flow of wastewater from your house to the city’s sanitary sewer, and the sewage starts to back up into your home.”

Many factors can contribute to a backup, including aging sewer systems, too much rain entering the system at one time, broken or collapsed sewer lines (including laterals, the pipes that link your home to the county system), tree roots in sewer lines and/or blockages or clogs in your plumbing.

Economical Insurance notes you can do several things to prevent backflows:

  • Don’t treat your toilet like a garbage can. The only things you should flush down the toilet are human waste and toilet paper. Don’t flush items like diapers, wipes, cigarette butts, paper towels, facial tissues, or personal hygiene products down the toilet — even if they say they’re ‘flushable.’
  • Throw grease and other clog-causing materials in the garbage, not down the sink. That includes bacon fat, coffee grinds, and food waste.”

No matter how careful you are, sometimes you can get a blocked pipe. If that happens, it’s time to call Billy the Sunshine Plumber for help in clearing the clog, clearing away tree roots, or repairing/replacing broken pipes.
