What triggers a clogged drain?
A stopped up drain is typically caused by the slow build-up of organic matter like hair and grease on the inside walls of drain pipes. In time, this build-up reduces the regular flow of water thru the pipe, much like cholesterol in the bloodstream. When a clump of debris or a bunch of hair tries to pass through the pipe, it can become caught and completely block the outflow. The result is a stopped up shower or sink drain.
Even though a plunger can occasionally unblock small blockages, a tough or persistent clog will require a visit from one of our qualified plumbers who will bring a tool called an auger (also known as a “snake”). This indispensable tool works in a different way than a plunger does. Our plumber will thread the snake into the clog and use the crank to send the snake deeper into the clog.
In some cases, the licensed plumber will use an electric snake, which has enough power to penetrate stubborn clogs. Snakes are especially handy because they’re long enough to reach clogs that are lodged deep within a drain pipe and finally unclog the drain.
Are there any exceptions? Frequently a clogged sink, tub, shower or even toilet is not caused by refuse in your home’s pipes (also called the secondary drains). Instead, the clog is the result of invading obstructions like roots in the sewer main . If our plumber discovers that the clog is caused by an obstruction in the sewer main, it may signal that we hydrojet the main line. While we try very hard to provide up-front, transparent quotes, custom jobs such as these will require us to give you an estimate for the work.
Some Common Sewer Main Blockage Causes in Bogota
A sewer line clog is the direct result of an object being flushed down the toilet or washed down the drain. Often, the object is a toy or toothpaste tube or any number of things that may unintentionally drop into the toilet. The object may clear the toilet yet can become caught or snagged within thesewer pipe.
Another area of concern is the kitchen sink, especially sinks with waste disposals. People often think it is all right to put all of the kitchen garbage down the garbage disposal. This isnot true– things that should not be sent down into a garbage disposal include grease, oil and bones. All the aforementioned things can harm or clog your house’s drain system. It only takes a small bit of bone to become trapped in your sewer pipes, snagging other things as they go by, to create a clog. In time, what was a little blockage grows into a bigger one, resulting in a total sewer line blockage.
How Does This Get Fixed?
When your main sewer pipe becomes blocked, you will most likely need the service of a professional plumber. Minor clogs can be gotten rid of by simply removing the sink’s P-trap and clearing out the debris. However, removing huge clogs that are located further in the drain line is more difficult. These types of clogs will require the plumber to use a powered plumbing snake to get to and cut through the blockage.
Contamination is a very real hazard and can cause by sewage leaks. If waste water leaks into your office or home the room must be sanitized and disinfected to prevent development of harmful bacteria that can cause tentanus, Hepatitus A and Giardia. In time, sewer water damage can cause very severe health conditions particularly in the aged, children and people who suffer from chronic breathing complications.
Quickly finding the cause of the obstructions and leak in your sewer and drain pipes will prevent potential harm to your family’s health and to your home.
