What causes a clogged drain?
A clogged drain is usually a result of the slow accumulation of natural matter like hair and grease on the inner walls of drain lines. In time, this build-up slows down the regular flow of water thru the line, much like cholesterol in the bloodstream. When a clump of debris or a wad of hair attempts to pass thru the pipe, it can become stuck and completely obstruct the flow. The result is a stopped up shower or sink drain.
How do I unclog my drain?
Although a plunger can occasionally unblock small obstructions, a tough or persistent clog will require a visit from one of our licensed plumbers who will use a tool called an auger (also called a “snake”). This indispensable tool works in the opposite way than a plunger works. Our plumber will thread the snake into the blockage and crank it to drive the snake deeper into the clog.
In some cases, the will use an electric snake, which has enough power to get through tough clogs. Snakes are especially good to have around because they’re long enough to reach obstructions that are stuck 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 debris in your home’s pipes (called the secondary drains). Instead, the clog is the result of invading obstructions such as roots inside the sewer main . If our plumber discovers that the clog is caused by an obstruction in the main sewer drain, it may require that we hydrojet the main line. While we try very hard to provide up front, transparent quotes, custom jobs such as these will necessitate that we give you a quotation for the work.
Some Typical Sewer Main Clog Causes in Caldwell
A sewer line clog is the direct result of an item being flushed down the toilet or washed down the drain. Oftentimes, the item is a toy or toothpaste tube or any number of things that may unintentionally fall into the toilet. The item may clear the toilet but can become caught or snagged within thesewer pipe.
Another area of concern is the kitchen sink, especially sinks with garbage disposals.Homeowners often think it is OK to put all kitchen waste down the disposal. This isnot true– things which should not be placed into a garbage disposal include grease, oil and bones. All the previously mentioned things can hurt or clog your home’s drain system. It simply takes a small bit of bone to get trapped in your sewer pipes, snagging other items as they pass by, to develop a blockage. In time, what was a little obstruction grows into a larger one, causing a complete sewer line blockage.
How Does This Get Fixed?
When your main sewer pipe becomes clogged, you will most likely need the services of a professional plumber. Minor obstructions can be cleared 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 more complicated. These kinds of clogs will call for the plumber to employ a powered plumbing snake to get to and cut through the clog.
Contagion is a very real hazard and can result from sewage leaks. If wastewater leaks into your home or office the space must be sanitized and disinfected to stop development of dangerous microorganisms that can cause tentanus, Hepatitus A and Giardia. In time, sewer water damages can trigger very severe health conditions particularly in the aged, children and people who suffer from chronic breathing complications.
Quickly discovering the cause of the obstructions and leak in your drain and sewer pipes will prevent harm to your family’s health and your home.
