Dog Clog | Billy the Sunshine Plumber

No matter the cause of the clog, Billy the Sunshine Plumber can help clean your drains and pipes.

You spent a fun morning letting Fluffy run around the dog park with his friends. Now you’re home again and realize he got really dirty. A good brushing isn’t going to get rid of the dirt. Thing is, bathing Fluffy means a lot of dog hair goes down the drain, slowing the water drainage and sometimes creating a clog.

“Your dog loses hair, even so-called non-shedding breeds lose hair, although not usually enough to adversely affect your plumbing. Short haired dogs that shed excessively or long-haired dogs that lose their luscious locks are major contributors to clogged household drains,” according to suggests these tips for avoiding dog hair clogs: “Brush your dog prior to bathing to remove as much loose hair and debris as possible. This will help prevent clogs and make bathing your dog easier.  Use of a homemade or commercial strainer over your drain to catch hair that is lost during the bathing process is also effective at preventing clogs.  Always wipe excess hair out of the tub instead of washing it down the drain.  It may seem like it is easier to rinse hair down the drain, but dealing with hair before it goes down the drain is a lot easier than dealing with it once it has to come back up.”
