Few situations are really as stressful as a sudden water leak in your home’s water or sewer pipes.

What triggers a clogged drain?
A clogged drain is typically caused by the slow build-up of organic matter such as hair and grease on the inner walls of drain lines. Over 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 attempts to pass through the pipe, it can become caught and totally obstruct the flow. The result is a clogged tub or sink drain.
How do I unclog my drain?
Even though a plunger can occasionally unblock small blockages, a tough or constant blockage will call for a visit with one of our qualified plumbers who will use a tool called an auger (also called a “snake”). This tool works in the opposite way than a plunger works. Our plumber will push the snake into the blockage and use the crank to drive the snake deeper into the obstruction.
In other cases, the licensed plumber will use an electric snake, which has the power necessary to penetrate tough clogs. Snakes are especially good to have around because they’re long enough to reach obstructions that are lodged deep inside a drain pipe and ultimately unclog the drain.
Are there any exceptions? Frequently a clogged sink, tub, shower or even toilet isn’t caused by refuse in your home’s pipes (also called the secondary drains). Instead, the clog is the result of invading obstructions such as tree roots inside 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 give you up front, transparent quotes, custom jobs such as these will require us to give you a quotation for the work.
Some Typical Sewer Main Blockage Causes in Butler
A sewer line clog is the direct result of an item 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 unintentionally drop into the toilet. The item may clear the toilet yet can become caught or snagged within thesewer pipe.
Another area of concern is the kitchen sink, particularly sinks with garbage disposals. People often assume it is OK to put all kitchen waste down the disposal. This iscertainly not true– things which should not be sent down into a garbage disposal include things like grease, oil and bones. All the previously mentioned items can harm or stop up your house’s drain system. It only takes a small shard of bone to get trapped in your sewer pipes, snagging other items as they go by, to develop a blockage. Over time, what was a little obstruction turns into a larger one, resulting in a complete sewer line obstruction.
How Does This Get Fixed?
When your main sewer pipe becomes blocked, you will most likely need the service of a professional plumber. Minor blockages can be gotten rid of by simply removing the sink’s P-trap and clearing out the debris. On the other hand, removing huge blockages that are located further in the drain system is a lot more difficult. These kinds of blockages will call for the plumber to employ a power plumbing snake to reach and bore through the blockage.
Contagion is a very legitimate hazard and can cause by sewage leaks. If wastewater leaks into your home or office the space must be sanitized and decontaminated to prevent growth of harmful bacteria that can cause tentanus, Hepatitus A and Giardia. Over time, sewer water damage can cause very severe health problems especially in the aged, kids and those who struggle with chronic breathing issues.
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.
