'Not a Trash Can' | Billy the Sunshine Plumber

If your toilet repeatedly clogs or you have a blockage you can’t remove, call Billy the Sunshine Plumber for help.

You were searching the city of Largo’s website for information about their raptor exhibit at the Narrows Environmental Education Center when you happened on an item called “A Toilet Is Not a Trash Can.” The title got your attention because your toilet clogs up a lot. Or, at least it seems that you spend a lot of time with a plunger trying to get things unblocked.

If you think your problem might be caused by trying to flush “unflushable” items, you could be right. A lot of people do that. That’s especially true when it comes to sanitary wipes that are labeled “flushable” but really don’t do anything more than disappear from the toilet bowl before forming a clog farther down in the system.

Largo offers this three tips to avoid clogs in your toilet or in any other drain in your home:

  • Fight F.O.G. – Fats, oils and grease that are poured down any drain can build up and block your sewer at home or work, causing nasty and costly sewer overflows. All of the following should be thrown away instead of being poured down the drain: Cooking Oil, Butter, Grease, Fat, Gravy, Mayonnaise and Sauces, Salad Dressings
  • Recycle Cooking Oil – If you’re a Largo city resident, then visit Largo’s 24 Hour Recycling Drop off Center (1551 Starkey Road) to recycle your used cooking oil to prevent backups and overflows in your home, or let the oil cool and place it in your trash can.
  • A Toilet is not a Trash Can – Be sure to never place any items in your toilet, even “flushable wipes” as they can block your drain and cause backups in homes and businesses.

Of course, clogs do happen even if you’re really careful. If you get a clog and can’t get rid of it by yourself, then it’s time to call in the 24-hour plumbers from Billy the Sunshine Plumber.
