What causes a blocked drain?
A stopped up drain is usually caused by the gradual build-up of natural matter like hair and grease on the inner walls of drain lines. In time, this build-up reduces the normal flow of water thru the pipe, similar to cholesterol in the bloodstream. When a jumble of debris or a wad of hair tries to pass thru the pipe, it can become stuck and totally obstruct the outflow. The result is a clogged tub or kitchen sink drain.
Even though a plunger can occasionally unclog minor obstructions, a stubborn or persistent blockage will require a visit from one of our licensed plumbers who will use a tool called an auger (also called a “snake”). This tool works in a different way than a plunger works. Our plumber will push the snake into the clog and crank it to send the snake deeper into the clog.
In other cases, the will use an electric snake, which has enough power to get through stubborn clogs. Snakes are especially good to have around because they are long enough to get to obstructions that are lodged deep inside a drainpipe 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 (called the secondary drains). Rather, the clog is the result of foreign obstructions like tree roots in the sewer main . If our plumber determines that the clog is caused by an obstruction in the sewer main, it may require that we hydrojet the main line. While we do try very hard to provide up-front, transparent quotes, custom jobs such as these will necessitate that we give you an estimate for the work.
Some Common Sewer Main Clog Causes in Clifton
A sewer line clog is the direct outcome of an object 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 accidentally drop into the toilet. The item may clear the toilet but can become caught or snagged within thesewer pipe.
Another problem area is the kitchen sink, especially sinks with waste disposals.Homeowners often think it is OK to put all of the kitchen waste down the disposal. This isnot true– products which should not be sent down into a garbage disposal include grease, any kind of oil and bones. All the aforementioned things can damage or clog your house’s drain system. It simply takes a small shard of bone to get trapped in your sewer pipes, grabbing onto other items as they go by, to create a blockage. Over time, what was a small obstruction grows into a larger one, causing a complete sewer line obstruction.
What Happens Next?
When your primary sewer line becomes clogged, you will need the service of an experienced plumber. Minor blockages can be gotten rid of by merely removing the sink’s P-trap and clearing out the debris. However, removing huge clogs that are located deeper in the drain line is more difficult. These types of obstructions will call for the plumber to use a power plumbing snake to reach and bore through the blockage.
Contagion is a very real hazard and can result from sewage leaks. If wastewater leaks into your office or home the space must be sanitized and disinfected to stop growth of dangerous microorganisms that can cause tentanus, Hepatitus A and Giardia. Over time, sewer water damage can trigger very serious health conditions particularly in the elderly, children and those who struggle with chronic respiratory issues.
Quickly finding the cause of the blockage and leak in your drain and sewer pipes will prevent harm to your family’s health and your home.
