What to Flush | Billy the Sunshine Plumber

With everyone home all day, your plumbing is working harder than ever. If you have a plumbing issue, call Billy the Sunshine Plumber. We’re an essential business and we’re open 24/7/365 to help you with all your plumbing needs.

Part of the problem with the stay-at-home quarantine is the boredom. Although you’re allowed to exercise, city, county and state parks in Citrus are all closed. You understand the goal is to keep large groups of people from gathering, but walking and biking around the neighborhood is getting boring. You’ve found yourself becoming more serious about cooking as a hobby to help pass the time you’re not spending working from home.

Boredom is certainly one of the downsides of the quarantine. Another downside few realize is the strain on your home. Once you think about it, it makes sense. Your whole family is home 24/7/365. That means the television, computers, stove, oven, microwaves and plumbing are getting a workout. And that can cause problems – especially if your plumbing clogs up.

That’s not a far-fetched scenario. News stories from across the country warn about the plumbing problems caused by the toilet paper shortage. Cities and counties are also sending out warnings about those same “flushable” items that simply aren’t flushable.

According to a story by wafb.com in Louisiana: “‘We really want to impart to the citizens: only flush toilet paper,’ said Tim Beckstrom, the public information officer for Louisiana Department of Environmental Quality.

“Beckstrom says toilet paper is the only safe thing to flush down the toilet. That means no wipes – even if the package reads ‘flushable.’

“‘There is a bit of a misnomer there,’ said Beckstrom. ‘They don’t break down as easily in the sewage systems. So, we don’t want any added stress to the infrastructure and to the workers.’

“A stressed sewage system could lead to a sticky situation for families stuck at home.”

That means you have to be extra vigilant about what you and your kids are tossing in the toilet.

But if you do get a blockage or have any other plumbing issue, help is nearby. Billy the Sunshine Plumber is classified as an essential business and is open 24/7/365 to help when you need it.
