Take Care of the Drain in Your Sink | Billy the Sunshine Plumber

If your drains are slow or your pipes are clogged, call Billy the Sunshine Plumber for help.

When Florida cities and counties have overflows or other sewer issues that dump water into the environment, they have to report it to the state Department of Environmental Protection as an incident of pollution. That’s what happened in Bradenton earlier this month. According to a report to the DEP,  about 2,500 gallons of water overflowed from two manhole covers. Officials fixed it by clearing away a clog in the system.

What was the cause of this clog?


That’s right, a big ball of grease clogged up the system.

Such clogs don’t only happen in city and county sewer systems. They happen on a smaller scale in residential systems.

With the recent COVID-19 lockdown, people have been home cooking more and bringing take out food into their houses. Some people thoughtlessly dump cooking grease into their kitchen sinks. They’ve also been rinsing plates into those same sinks. Eventually, that grease can build up and create a clog that can – at worst – block up the entire sewer system in your home.

The message is clear – don’t dump grease into your kitchen sink. Get rid of it in the trash.
