What causes a clogged drain?
A clogged up drain is generally a result of the gradual build-up of organic matter like hair and grease on the inside walls of drain lines. In time, this buildup slows down the normal flow of water through the pipe, similar to cholesterol in the bloodstream. When a clump of debris or a wad of hair attempts to pass through the pipe, it can become stuck and totally obstruct the outflow. The end result is a clogged tub or kitchen sink drain.
How do I unclog my drain?
While a plunger can sometimes unblock small obstructions, a tough or persistent clog will require a visit with one of our qualified plumbers who will bring a tool called an auger (also known as a “snake”). This tool works in the opposite way than a plunger does. Our plumber will push the snake into the clog 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’re long enough to reach clogs that are stuck deep within 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). Instead, 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 an obstruction in the main sewer drain, 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 necessitate that we give you a quotation for the work.
Some Typical Sewer Main Blockage Causes in Chatham
A sewer line blockage 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 variety of things that may accidentally drop into the toilet. The object may clear the toilet but can become trapped or snagged within thesewer pipe.
Another area of concern is the kitchen sink, particularly sinks with waste disposals. People often think it is all right to put all kitchen garbage down the disposal. This isnot true– products which should not be placed into a garbage disposal include grease, any kind of oil and bones. All the aforementioned things can damage or stop up your house’s drain pipes. It just takes a small shard of bone to become trapped in your sewer line, snagging other items as they go by, to develop a clog. 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 main sewer line becomes clogged, you will most likely need the services of an experienced plumber. Minor blockages can be gotten rid of by merely removing the sink’s P-trap and flushing out the debris. On the other hand, removing large clogs that are located further in the drain line is more difficult. These sorts of obstructions will require the plumber to employ a power plumbing snake to reach and cut through the blockage.
Contagion is a very legitimate hazard and can result from sewage leaks. If wastewater leaks into your office or home the room must be sanitized and decontaminated to prevent development of harmful bacteria that can cause tentanus, Hepatitus A and Giardia. In time, sewer water damages can trigger very serious health problems especially in the aged, kids and people who suffer from chronic respiratory issues.
Quickly finding the root cause of the blockage and leak in your drain and sewer pipes will prevent harm to your family’s health and your home.
