Not in the Kitchen Sink | Billy the Sunshine Plumber

Some of the most unexpected things can clog up your drains. Billy the Sunshine Plumber is here to help.

You’re planning to go to a rooftop yoga session this week. You need the relaxation to recover from a weekend spent dealing with a clog in your kitchen sink.

The clogging was so frustrating because you try hard not to pour “forbidden” items down the drain, like grease and coffee grounds. And yet, you had a tough clog.

Drains can be tricky. Sometimes it’s the smallest or most unexpected item that gums up the works. Those tiny stickers on fruit are a prime example.

“Many times people wash their fruit and forget to take the sticker off; it falls in the sink and you eventually just let it go down the drain,” tasteofhome.com says. “Peel them off before you wash your fruit and dispose of it properly. Those little stickers don’t dissolve in water and can clog your pipes and block screens and filters or pumps at the water treatment plant.”

Another item that can cause a clog is flour. 

“Flour coagulates when mixed with water. This can clog your pipes by coating the edges and catching other bits of disposables trying to make their way down,” according to tasteofhome.com. “Always throw your flour, whether mixed with water or not, in the garbage.”

Of course, no matter how careful you are, clogs can happen. If they do and you can’t get rid of them by yourself, it’s time to call the certified plumbing techs at Billy the Sunshine Plumber.
