Island of Used Wipes | Billy the Sunshine Plumber

Never flush used wipes down your toilet. They can do horrendous things to your plumbing. If you do get a clog, Billy the Sunshine Plumber can help.

You got out early this morning before it became really hot so you could take a walk along the Loop Trail at Crystal River. It was already so hot that it was hard to enjoy the walk, but the scenery was beautiful as always.

Unadulterated scenery is becoming scarce these days. Take the Thames River in London, for example, According to news stories, the river has changed course recently thanks to waste. Not just any waste, but used wipes: “A ‘wet wipe island‘ the size of two tennis courts has formed in the Thames, causing the river as it flows through London to change course, according to The Times of London. Ministers have asked people to stop using wet wipes, and the government is considering banning those that contain plastic.”

Yipes! Those are the same things so many of us thoughtlessly toss in the toilet and flush away. If they can do that to the Thames, imagine what a smaller clog can do to your plumbing.

If you use wipes, you need to ignore the packaging that says they’re “flushable,” because they aren’t – and toss them in the trash instead. Of course, no matter how cautious you are about what you flush, clogs can happen. If you get a clog you can’t clear on your own, then it’s time to call the helpful plumbing pros at Billy the Sunshine Plumber.
