Giving Up on Toilet Paper? | Billy the Sunshine Plumber

If you have a plumbing problem or upgrade, call Billy the Sunshine Plumber. We’re still working through the COVID-19 lockdown and ready to help you.

It didn’t surprise you that the Pinellas County Commission extended the state of emergency and are keeping the COVID-19 lockdown on beaches in place. While you’d like to go for a walk on the beach, you’ve pretty much gotten your days down to a routine. What you’re finding harder to adjust to is the lack of toilet paper. You were one of the lucky ones who just happened to buy toilet paper just before the lockdown began. But now you’re about to run out and – a month later – toilet paper is still hard to find. 

The dailywire.com quotes a USA Today story explaining “that part of the reason stores just can’t seem to keep toilet paper on the shelves long enough has to do with an increased demand for the type of toilet paper used at home.

“Toilet paper manufacturer Georgia-Pacific says that Americans are using an estimated 40 percent more toilet paper at home than normal, a factor that can be attributed to fewer people using restrooms in businesses and public places, where a different type of toilet paper is used, reports the news agency.”

The solution for many, according to the dailywire.com story, for many people is to upgrade their bathroom to include a bidet.

In fact, evidence suggests that some Americans are even starting to switch over to the European-style bidet, putting the days of toilet paper runs behind them,” reports the dailywire.com. “Bathroom product companies and review websites have been seeing increased interest in bidets, and some companies have reported a dramatic increase in sales, reports Wired.

“’Sales over the past few weeks have grown from double to triple to more like 10 times what they were in weeks before word spread about TP shortages,’ Jason Ojalvo, CEO of the bidet company Tushy, told the news agency. ‘This could be the tipping point that finally gets Americans to adopt the bidet.’”

If you’ve considered the thought of installing a bidet, now is the time to do it. Once you decide which bidet you want – freestanding, combined with a toilet, or a add-on to your current toilet – all you have to do is call Billy the Sunshine Plumber to come out and install it.

Billy the Sunshine Plumber is here for all your plumbing needs whether it’s an emergency or an upgrade or anything in between.

Billy the Sunshine Plumber is a locally owned service business that’s been open since 1924 in Pinellas, Pasco, Hernando and Citrus counties. Billy the Sunshine Plumber is here to help you even during the lockdown.
