Leave the Sand on the Beach | Billy the Sunshine Plumber

Sand can do a number on your pipes. Billy the Sunshine Plumber can help clear those sand clogs.

One of the best things about living in the Tampa Bay area is the number of beaches, some of them ranked as among the best in the world. Of course, there are the variety of beach activities from a solitary walk or time reading a book to games with the kids to swimming in the Gulf. But no matter what you do at the beach or how long you stay there, you generally bring back memories in the form of sand.

But be careful because, as plumbing fixture manufacturer Delta Faucet warns, “if you’re not careful, those tiny little specks of sand can do a number on your plumbing.”

The problem is that the sand can build up – especially in older plumbing – and cause a clog. Those clogs can cause slow drains and, eventually, backups.

“The only way to get a clogged shower drain up and running again is to force the sand out of the pipes. You can try to clear as much of the debris as possible by using an electric snake, or drain-cleaning machine, which has a cable you feed through the pipes,” according to Delta Faucet. “But to clean the line completely, you may have to hire a plumber to use jetting, a method that uses high-pressure streams of water to remove buildup and restore pipes to their easy-flowing selves.”

As with many things, prevention is the best cure. Delta Faucet suggests you rinse off the sand with a garden hose before you go inside to shower or bathe. That way, no sand goes down your drains.

We all know, however, that clogs can happen no matter how many precautions you take. If that’s the case, you need the 24-hour Tampa Bay plumbing specialists at Billy the Sunshine Plumber for help.
