Don't Flush This! | Billy the Sunshine Plumber

When you’ve flushed something you shouldn’t have and your toilet clogs, call the clog-clearing experts at Billy the Sunshine Plumber for help.

You’re planning to run in tonight’s Glow in the Park 5K. That is, you’re planning to run if you can get your toilet unclogged. Your toilet has been clogging a lot recently and you’re not sure why. Although you haven’t tracked it, you think it’s been clogging a lot since you got the new kitten.

That might be your answer. At least, it might be the answer if you’re dumping kitty litter down the toilet. And, no, you don’t have to dump a whole pan of used (or unused) litter down the toilet for it to cause problems. If you’ve been scooping and dumping the waste and clumps in the toilet, you’re probably causing the toilet clog. Why, you ask? Well, as the New York Times points out, “Kitty litter will not dissolve in water and can create clogs, even if it is labeled flushable.”

The Times goes on to illustrate the point: “Gene Weingarten, a syndicated columnist, described what happened when he flushed a small amount of cat litter down his daughter’s toilet last year.

“’Cat litter is a preternaturally absorptive substance, apparently designed to expand to roughly 60,000 times its original volume in some horrible malignant process like cancer, only worse,’ he wrote. ‘Molly’s toilet resembled one of those baking-soda-and-vinegar volcanoes the dumb kids in middle school made every year for science fairs.’”

The moral of the story is, of course, DON’T FLUSH KITTY LITTER.

But if you’ve already done it and are dealing with the result, call the clogged toilet pros at Billy the Sunshine Plumber. Billy Sunshine has been in business for almost 100 years – he was founded in 1924 – and that’s a lot of clogged toilets he’s repaired in that time. Billy the Sunshine Plumber is available 24/7/365 in Pinellas, Pasco, Hernando and Citrus counties. He never closes. So give Billy a ring and have fun glowing in the park tonight.
