Toss, Don't Flush | Billy the Sunshine Plumber

If your sewer system clogs up, it’s time to call the drain-clearing experts at Billy the Sunshine Plumber.

You took the dog for a walk in Starkey park yesterday. It was a great way to get out and get away from the day’s stresses. When you got home, you used sanitary wipes to clean your hands before making lunch. After fixing it, you used sanitary wipes to clean the counter.

What did you do after that? Did you toss them in the trash or flush them down the toilet?

If you’re like a lot of people, you flushed them. And they’re not flushable, despite what the labels might say. Because so many people are flushing them right now, sewer systems around the country are having problems, according to cnn.com.

The wipes, arguably the supply that’s been used to clean surfaces in homes the most, are harming sewers. Why? Because people are flushing wipes down toilets, rather than dumping them in the trash,” cnn.com says. “Now, public agencies around the nation are urging people to solely throw their wipes in the trash, warning that not doing so could cause blockages and damage to sewer systems.”

It’s not just the city and county sewer systems that are at risk. Your home’s plumbing could also be damaged if the system clogs up with non-flushable wipes. Even if the clog doesn’t damage your system, you might get a backed up toilet and, trust us, that’s a mess you don’t want to have to deal with.

So, unless it’s genuine toilet paper, toss it, don’t flush it.

But what happens if you get a clog anyway and you can’t get it cleared out by yourself?

That’s the time to call Billy the Sunshine Plumber for help.
