Unflushable | Billy the Sunshine Plumber

If you have a plumbing clog, you need the pipe and drain cleaning pros at Billy the Sunshine Plumber to help.

You were getting ready to go to the Tarpon Spring Seafood Festival when your toilet backed up. Rather than spending the day munching on seafood, you spent a part of it trying to clear out the clog in your toilet and mopping up your bathroom floor.

Not only was it a nasty job, you had a bard time getting the toilet to flush. And it’s not the firs time this has happened recently. You’re wondering if you have a problem farther down in the system.

That could be. Especially if you’ve been flushing things you should not flush, which is pretty much anything other than toilet tissue. Yes, the labels on wipes and other products claim they are “flushable” and that’s true, if by “flushable” you mean they disappear from the toilet when flushed. But they’re not “flushable” when they get into your system – or into the main sewer system. Instead of dissolving like toilet tissue, they stick around an build up and can form a really big clog.

And the problem isn’t only the failure of wipes and such to dissolve, or flush, the problem is one of pollution, plastics and the effect on the world’s seas, waterways and wildlife. It’s even bad for us humans.

Unflushables like wipes, sanitary towels, tampons and cotton buds typically contain plastic so they don’t disintegrate like toilet paper,” according to the Marine Conservation Society. “Flush them, and once they reach the sea, they stick around for a very, very, very, very, very, very, very long time.

“Worse still, plastics in the sea are now entering the food chain. That’s bad news for humanfolk everywhere.”

So, do yourself a favor – don’t flush anything other than your waste and toilet paper. But if you do, and you get a clog, call the drain-cleaning specialists at Billy the Sunshine Plumber.
