What causes a stopped up drain?
A stopped up drain is usually a result of the gradual accumulation of natural substances like hair and grease on the inside walls of drain lines. In time, this buildup reduces the normal flow of water through the line, similar to cholesterol in the bloodstream. When a jumble of debris or a bunch of hair attempts to pass through the pipe, it can get caught and totally block the outflow. The end result is a clogged shower or sink drain.
While a plunger can occasionally unclog small blockages, a tough or persistent blockage will require a visit with one of our qualified 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 other cases, the licensed plumber will use an electric snake, which has the power necessary to penetrate tough clogs. Snakes are very handy because they’re long enough to get to obstructions that are stuck deep within a drain pipe and ultimately 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 invading obstructions like tree roots inside the sewer main drain pipe. If our plumber discovers that the clog is caused by this kind of obstruction in the main sewer drain, it may require that we hydrojet the main line. While we do try very hard to provide up front, transparent pricing, custom jobs like these will require us to give you an estimate for the work.
Some Typical Sewer Main Blockage Causes in Cliffside Park
A sewer line blockage is the direct result of an object being flushed down the toilet or washed down the drain. Often, the item is a toy or toothpaste tube or any variety of things that may unintentionally fall into the toilet. The item may clear the toilet yet can become caught or snagged within thesewer line.
Another area of concern is the kitchen sink, especially sinks with garbage disposals.Homeowners often assume it is OK to put all kitchen waste down the disposal. This isnot true– items which should never be sent down into a garbage disposal include things like grease, oil and bones. All the aforementioned things can damage or clog your house’s drain system. It only takes a small bit of bone to get trapped in your sewer pipes, snagging other things as they pass by, to develop a blockage. Over time, what was a small obstruction grows into a larger one, resulting in a complete sewer line blockage.
Is There Hope for My Pipes?
When your primary sewer pipe becomes clogged, you will most likely need the service of a professional plumber. Minor obstructions can be cleared by simply removing the sink’s P-trap and clearing out the debris. However, removing huge clogs that lie deeper in the drain system is a lot more difficult. These kinds of obstructions will require the plumber to employ a power plumbing snake to get to and bore through the clog.
Contamination is a very real hazard and can cause by sewage leaks. If waste water leaks into your office or home the room 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 serious health conditions especially in the elderly, children and those who suffer from persistent breathing complications.
Quickly finding the cause of the obstructions and leak in your drain and sewer pipes will prevent harm to your family’s health and to your home.
