What triggers a blocked drain?
A clogged up drain is usually a result of the gradual build-up of organic substances like hair and grease on the inside walls of drain pipes. Over time, this buildup reduces the regular flow of water through the line, similar to cholesterol in the bloodstream. When a jumble of debris or a wad of hair tries to pass thru the pipe, it can get stuck and totally obstruct the flow. The result is a stopped up tub or sink drain.
How do I unclog my drain?
Although a plunger can occasionally unblock minor blockages, a stubborn or constant blockage will call for a visit from one of our qualified plumbers who will bring a tool called an auger (also called a “snake”). This tool works in the opposite way than a plunger does. Our plumber will push the snake into the clog and crank it to send the snake deeper into the clog.
In some cases, the will use an electric snake, which has the power necessary to penetrate tough clogs. Snakes are especially handy because they’re long enough to reach clogs that are lodged deep within a drainpipe and ultimately unclog the drain.
Are there any exceptions? Sometimes a clogged sink, tub, shower or even toilet is not caused by debris in your home’s pipes (called the secondary drains). Instead, the clog is the result of foreign obstructions such as tree roots in the sewer main drain pipe. If our plumber determines that the clog is caused by this kind of obstruction in the sewer main, it may signal that we hydrojet the main line. While we try very hard to give you up front, transparent quotes, custom jobs like these will require us to give you a quotation for the work.
Some Common Sewer Main Clog Causes in Bloomfield
A sewer line blockage is the direct outcome of an item being flushed down the toilet or washed down the drain. Often, the item is a toy or toothpaste tube or any variety of things that may accidentally drop into the toilet. The object may clear the toilet but can become trapped or snagged within thesewer line.
Another area of concern is the kitchen sink, particularly sinks with waste disposals.Homeowners often assume it is all right to put all kitchen garbage down the disposal. This iscertainly not true– things that should never be sent down into a garbage disposal include things like grease, oil and bones. All the previously mentioned things can hurt or stop up your house’s drain pipes. It simply takes a small bit of bone to become trapped in your sewer line, snagging other items as they go by, to create a clog. Over time, what was a small obstruction turns into a larger one, causing a complete sewer line obstruction.
What Happens Next?
When your main sewer line becomes blocked, you will need the services of a professional plumber. Minor obstructions can be gotten rid of by simply removing the sink’s P-trap and clearing out the debris. However, removing large clogs that are located further in the drain system is more difficult. These sorts of obstructions will require the plumber to employ a power plumbing snake to get to and bore through the blockage.
Contagion is a very real hazard and can result from sewage leaks. If waste water leaks into your office or home the space must be sanitized and decontaminated to prevent growth of dangerous bacteria that can cause tentanus, Hepatitus A and Giardia. Over time, sewer water damage can trigger very severe health problems especially in the elderly, kids and those who struggle with chronic breathing complications.
Quickly finding the root cause of the obstructions and leak in your sewer and drain pipes will prevent harm to your family’s health and to your home.
