With a team of fully licensed plumbers and 24/7 service availability, your most difficult sewer repair emergencies are never too far from our fast and professional solutions.
What triggers a stopped up drain?
A clogged drain is typically caused by the slow build-up of natural matter like hair and grease on the inner walls of drain pipes. Over time, this buildup reduces the regular flow of water thru the line, much like cholesterol in the bloodstream. When a jumble of debris or a wad of hair tries to pass through the pipe, it can get stuck and completely obstruct the outflow. The end result is a stopped up tub or kitchen sink drain.
While a plunger can sometimes unblock minor blockages, a stubborn or persistent blockage will call for a visit from one of our qualified plumbers who will use a tool called an auger (also known as a “snake”). This indispensable tool works in the opposite way than a plunger works. Our plumber will thread the snake into the clog and use the crank to send the snake deeper into the clog.
In other cases, the licensed plumber will use an electric snake, which has the power necessary to get through tough clogs. Snakes are very handy because they are long enough to reach clogs that are lodged deep inside a drainpipe 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). Rather, the clog is the result of foreign obstructions like tree roots in the sewer main drain pipe. If our plumber discovers 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 pricing, custom jobs like these will require us to give you an estimate for the work.
Some Typical Sewer Main Clog Causes in Cedar Grove
A sewer line blockage is the direct outcome 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 but can become trapped or snagged within thesewer pipe.
Another problem area is the kitchen sink, particularly sinks with garbage disposals.Homeowners often assume it is all right to put all kitchen garbage down the disposal. This iscertainly not true– things that should not be placed into a garbage disposal include grease, oil and bones. All the previously mentioned items can hurt or stop up your house’s drain system. It just takes a small shard of bone to get trapped in your sewer pipes, snagging other items as they go by, to develop a blockage. In time, what was a small blockage turns into a larger one, resulting in a total sewer line obstruction.
How Does This Get Fixed?
When your primary sewer line becomes clogged, you will need the service of a professional plumber. Minor clogs can be gotten rid of by merely removing the sink’s P-trap and flushing out the debris. On the other hand, removing huge blockages that are located deeper in the drain system is more difficult. These sorts of obstructions will call for the plumber to employ a powered plumbing snake to get to and cut through the clog.
Contamination is a very real hazard and can result from sewage leaks. If waste water leaks into your office or home the room must be sanitized and disinfected to prevent growth of harmful bacteria that can cause tentanus, Hepatitus A and Giardia. Over time, sewer water damages can trigger very severe health conditions particularly in the aged, children and those who struggle with chronic respiratory issues.
Quickly discovering the cause of the blockage and leak in your sewer and drain pipes will prevent potential harm to your family’s health and to your home.
