If you’ve flushed something you shouldn’t have flushed and have a clogged sewer or toilet, call Billy the Sunshine Plumber to help.
Back in 2016, Pinellas County, 17 cities and others formed a stormwater task force in response to the overflow of raw and partially treated sewage into the bay. The goal of the group was to identify and solve stormwater and wastewater issues in Pinellas County and find some solutions. One of the problems, the task force discovered, was the disposal of “unflushable” things down toilets. Because these items didn’t dissolve the way toilet tissue does, they’d build up and clog not only home and business systems, but also the larger system.
Now the county has embarked on an education mission to let people know what they can and can’t flush. The latest chapter is a Facebook posting showing a utility worker with a shovel or pitchfork full of stuff the county describes as “grey [sic] and gross.” The caption of the photo asks, “What’s grey and gross and something you’d never want to touch?”
The county explains, “The ‘flushable’ wipes YOU flush down the toilet. ‘Flushable’ wipes are NOT flushable. They clog your sewer system and can backup wastewater into your house. Only toilet paper, number 1 & 2 go down the toilet.”
No, you shouldn’t trust labels that say “flushable.” But let’s face it, we’ve all done it. And many of us continue to flush unflushables. And many home- and business owners end up with clogged toilets and clogged sewer lines. And when they do, they need help to clear their drains and sewer system.
