Bad Idea | Clogged Drains

When you have clogged drains and you’re looking for someone to help you unblock pipes, it’s time to call the clogged drain pros at Billy the Sunshine Plumber.

You were planning to take the kids to Christmas in the Wild at Lowry Park Zoo this afternoon. But instead, you’re trying to figure out why your toilet is clogged. And, for that matter, why all your drains are slow.

You can’t think of anything you’ve flushed that you shouldn’t have. That includes “flushable” wipes and things that really aren’t flushable. The only thing you can think of that you’ve put down the toilet other than human waste and toilet paper is cat waste. When you pick out the kitty litter each day, you just dump it in the toilet. It’s right there and very handy.

That’s probably your mistake. notes that kitty litter, even the “flushable” kind, is anything but flushable. “Today’s  water-saving toilets use only 1.6 gallons of water per flush. That’s not enough water to keep the kitty litter moving,” according to

But, you say, you only flush the poop. Not the litter.

That’s still a no-no. It has nothing to do with cat waste per se. The problem, says, is that “toilets are designed for water-soluble waste. When cat poop sits in litter, it gets dehydrated and becomes hard as a rock. These ‘petrified poops’ can get lodged in the labyrinth of pipes exiting the toilet and cause a clog. So, from now on, bag up your litter — poop and all — and dispose of it in the garbage.”

That’s great for going forward. But now that you may have a clogged toilet and clogged pipes, how do you unblock pipes? That’s easy. Just call Billy the Sunshine Plumber.
