Be Careful What You Flush | Billy the Sunshine Plumber

If your toilet gets clogged and you can’t get it clear, it’s time to call the plumbing pros at Billy the Sunshine Plumber for help.

When you got up this morning, you were all ready to head over to Fort Cooper State Park to go trekking. Instead, you spent the morning mopping up your bathroom floor after the toilet clogged and overflowed. You think you managed to clear out the clog because the toilet seems to be working now. But, you’re not really sure because it seems to be slow flushing and sometimes takes several flushes to get the bowl to clear.

Toilets can be cranky and delicate when it comes to flushing things. notes that, “It can be tempting to use the toilet as a garbage can, but you should never flush anything but toilet paper and human waste. … Sending trash or other bathroom products down the drain can clog your pipes in a hurry and potentially cause the toilet to overflow in a nasty and hazardous mess.”

That goes for obvious things – like trash, which belongs in the trash can not in the toilet. It also goes for less obvious things like “flushable” wipes and related items. The label might say “flushable,” but your efficient toilet may not have enough water to dissolve the wipe or sanitary product. What ends up happening is that the wipes get caught in the trap and causes an overflow days later as other items also get stuck.
