What triggers a blocked drain?
A clogged drain is typically a result of the gradual build-up of organic matter such as hair and grease on the inside walls of drain pipes. Over time, this buildup reduces the normal flow of water thru the line, similar to cholesterol in the blood vessels. When a jumble of debris or a wad of hair tries to pass thru the pipe, it can get caught and completely obstruct the outflow. The end result is a stopped up tub or sink drain.
How do I unclog my drain?
Even though a plunger can sometimes unclog minor obstructions, a tough or persistent clog will require a visit from one of our licensed 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 works. Our plumber will thread the snake into the blockage and use the crank to send the snake deeper into the obstruction.
In some cases, the will use an electric snake, which has enough power to get through tough clogs. Snakes are very handy because they are long enough to reach obstructions that are stuck deep within a drain pipe and finally unclog the drain.
Are there any exceptions? Sometimes a clogged sink, tub, shower or even toilet isn’t caused by refuse in your home’s pipes (also called the secondary drains). Rather, the clog is the result of invading obstructions like tree roots in the sewer main drain pipe. If our plumber discovers that the clog is caused by an obstruction in the sewer main, it may require that we hydrojet the main line. While we try very hard to provide up front, transparent quotes, custom jobs like these will necessitate that we give you an estimate for the work.
Some Common Sewer Main Blockage Causes in Boonton
A sewer line blockage is the direct result of an object being flushed down the toilet or washed down the drain. Oftentimes, the object is a toy or toothpaste tube or any number of things that may accidentally fall into the toilet. The item may clear the toilet but can become caught or snagged within thesewer pipe.
Another problem area is the kitchen sink, especially sinks with garbage disposals. People often assume it is OK to put all kitchen garbage down the garbage disposal. This iscertainly not true– items that should not be placed into a garbage disposal include grease, oil and bones. All the previously mentioned things can harm or stop up your house’s drain system. It just takes a small shard of bone to get trapped in your sewer line, snagging other things as they go by, to create a blockage. In time, what was a little obstruction grows into a bigger one, causing a total sewer line obstruction.
How Does This Get Fixed?
When your primary sewer pipe becomes blocked, you will most likely need the service of an experienced plumber. Minor obstructions can be gotten rid of by simply removing the sink’s P-trap and clearing out the debris. However, removing huge clogs that lie deeper in the drain line is more complicated. These sorts of clogs will call for the plumber to use a powered plumbing snake to reach and bore through the clog.
Contamination is a very legitimate hazard and can result from sewage leaks. If waste water leaks into your home or office the room must be sanitized and disinfected to stop growth of dangerous microorganisms that can cause tentanus, Hepatitus A and Giardia. Over time, sewer water damage can cause very serious health conditions particularly in the aged, kids and people who struggle with persistent respiratory complications.
Quickly discovering the root cause of the obstructions and leak in your sewer and drain pipes will prevent harm to your family’s health and your home.
