Don't Flush | Billy the Sunshine Plumber

Billy the Sunshine Plumber can help if your toilet keeps clogging.

You got a late start on your way to Anclote River Park this morning because your toilet clogged. It not only clogged, it backed up and dumped dirty toilet water all over your bathroom floor. You did get it – and yourself cleaned up – but you’re really frustrated because it seems to be clogging a lot recently.

It’s probably no consolation. But you’re not the only one with that problem. Especially recently as people have stayed home more often, which means they’re using their toilets more frequently. Many times the problem is caused when a clog forms because non-flushable items are flushed. The biggest offender is sanitary wipes that have the word “flushable” on the label but are not truly flushable.

“A lot of manufacturers are putting out what they call flushable wipes. The problem is they’re not really flushable,” said Larry Hare, the plant manager at the Des Moines Metropolitan Wastewater Reclamation  Authority, in a recent news story. “What they do is they end up clogging the sewer pipe themselves. They get into pumps that are downstream and clog those pumps and back up a large amount of sewage in the neighborhood. … Even after nine months the flushable wipe is mostly still intact.”

Hare and other sewer experts say you should only flush toilet paper. Wipes should go in the trash.

The fact that they do appear to flush but get clogged farther down in the system could be the reason you’re experiencing recurrent toilet clogs. Using a plunger or other methods to clear the toilet itself isn’t getting to the real problem.
