Toilet clogged and backing up? Billy the Sunshine Plumber will help!

You were planning on spending the day biking on the Serenova Tract. Instead, you were in your bathroom, cleaning up the backed up icky stuff from your clogged toilet and trying to get rid of the blockage. It was a really nasty way to spend a Sunday.

It was not only a dirty job, you had to admit it was your fault for flushing wipes down the toilet. In you defense, you thought they were “flushable,” because the label said so.

Rule No.1 of housekeeping – don’t trust labels.

“When a product is labeled ‘flushable,’ it generally means that it will clear your toilet bowl. It does not mean it will definitely clear your pipes or break down in the sewer system or at a wastewater treatment plant. Water and wastewater utilities around the world have found a significant increase of wipes in their sewer pipes and at their plants,” according to “Truly flushable items are ones that: break into small pieces quickly, are not buoyant, and only contain materials which will readily degrade in a range of natural environments (like paper, not plastic).”

The problem is more than the formation of a clog. The problem is made worse by the fact that the wipes clear the toilet bowl and form the clog farther down in a pipe. That makes it especially hard for homeowners to clear up the mess by themselves.Many find it’s best to call the trusted plumbers at Billy the Sunshine Plumber.
