Don't Flush | Billy the Sunshine Plumber

Billy the Sunshine Plumber can help if your toilet becomes clogged.

You were considering making a short drive to Apopka for a day of inner tubing. But that was before your toilet clogged, backed up and spilled dirty toilet water all over your bathroom floor. Now you have to clean the bathroom and figure out how to get rid of that clog.

Toilet clogging is a common problem caused in large part by flushing items that shouldn’t be flushed. Toilet clogs have become more common since the onset of the pandemic as more and more people have bought – and flushed – disposable wipes.

“Disposable wipes have been causing issues with plumbing, sewer systems and treatment facilities for years. It’s certainly not new for us.” John Gonzalez, communication manager for the Northeast Ohio Regional Sewer District, was quoted as saying in a recent news story. “We know people commonly use toilets as trash cans. That’s a habit and it’s a problem. And as many kinds of wipes are promoted as disposable and flushable, consumers are challenged to know the difference. They flush wipes, toilet paper, tissues, paper towels, all kinds of disposable items they use for cleaning. But the only product safe to flush is toilet paper.”

The easy way to tell if something is truly “flushable” and won’t clog your toilet or sewer pipes is to remember the three Ps – pee, poop and (toilet) paper. If it’s not one of those things, it’s not flushable, no matter what the label says.

Of course, it’s easy to forget these cautionary suggestions and to flush things that shouldn’t be flushed. If that happens and you get a clog you can’t clear, then it’s time to call the trusted plumbing pros at Billy the Sunshine Plumber.
