Aargh! We had to call the plumber last night because the paint from cleaning our brushes and rollers stopped up the drains. Am I missing something here? How can we avoid another visit from the plumber? I know that cleaning them outside is bad, b/c it runs into the storm drains and into the bay. Is there some way to avoid just throwing them out?

This is more of a plumbing question. Paint should not clog up drains, especially if flushed with water so that it is diluted and does not dry. You probably have (or had) some other clog and the paint (or something else that went down while you were cleaning the brushes) hit as the final thing that caused a clog.

I suggest you use the Drano Foamer clog remover. It really works wonders on deep-drain clogs and on slow drains. I have used it on regular drains and on clogged A/C drain lines, and it has never failed to work, although I sometimes needed to use more than one treamtment on old, severely-clogged drains.
