Prevent a Clog | Billy the Sunshine Plumber

You can help avoid clogging your toilet by making sure you and your family know what can – and can’t – be flushed safely.

Let’s face it, you’d rather be thinking about weekend plans – Kumquat Festival, anyone? – than worrying about the plumbing in your home. You’d certainly rather be making those plans rather than calling a plumber to clear up a clog that has backed up your plumbing.

Well, with a bit of care, you can make it less likely that you’ll suffer the ill effects of a toilet or sewer clog. That care involves educating your family about things that can be safely flushed down the toilet. suggests you make a list of flushing no-nos to remind your family what’s safe. says that list should include these unflushables – feminine hygiene products (even if the container says they’re flushable – they’re not), paper towels, toys (even little ones), cotton balls, ashtray debris and cooking grease. 

“If you have little children or pets who get curious about the toilet, consider installing a lid lock to keep them from flushing the wrong things down the bowl,” suggests.

Of course, no matter how careful you are, you could end up dealing with a clog. If the traditional plumber’s helper (plunger) doesn’t do the trick, or the clog keeps recurring, then it’s time to call the clog-clearing pros at Billy the Sunshine Plumber.
