What triggers a blocked drain?
A clogged up drain is generally a result of the gradual build-up of natural matter like hair and grease on the inside walls of drain lines. In time, this build-up slows down the normal flow of water through 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 caught and totally block the outflow. The result is a clogged bathtub or sink drain.
How do I unclog my drain?
While a plunger can occasionally unblock minor blockages, a stubborn 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 a different way than a plunger does. Our plumber will thread the snake into the clog and crank it to send the snake deeper into the clog.
In other cases, the licensed plumber will use an electric snake, which has enough power to get through tough clogs. Snakes are especially good to have around because they are long enough to reach obstructions that are lodged deep inside a drainpipe and finally unclog the drain.
Are there any exceptions? Sometimes a clogged sink, tub, shower or even toilet isn’t caused by refuse in your home’s pipes (called the secondary drains). Instead, the clog is the result of foreign obstructions like 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 signal 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 a quotation for the work.
Some Common Sewer Main Blockage Causes in Closter
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 object may clear the toilet yet can become caught or snagged within thesewer line.
Another area of concern is the kitchen sink, particularly sinks with waste disposals.Homeowners often think it is all right to put all kitchen garbage down the disposal. This iscertainly not true– things that should not be sent down into a garbage disposal include things like grease, oil and bones. All the previously mentioned things can harm or clog your home’s drain pipes. It only takes a small shard of bone to get trapped in your sewer pipes, snagging other things as they go by, to create a blockage. In time, what was a little obstruction turns into a bigger one, causing a total sewer line blockage.
What Happens Next?
When your main sewer line becomes blocked, you will need the service of a professional plumber. Minor obstructions can be cleared by merely removing the sink’s P-trap and flushing out the debris. However, removing huge blockages that are located further in the drain system is a lot more difficult. These sorts of obstructions will require the plumber to use a powered plumbing snake to reach and cut through the clog.
Contamination is a very real hazard and can result from sewage leaks. If wastewater leaks into your office or home the room must be sanitized and decontaminated to prevent growth of dangerous bacteria that can cause tentanus, Hepatitus A and Giardia. In time, sewer water damages can cause very severe health conditions particularly in the aged, children and people who suffer from persistent breathing complications.
Quickly discovering the root cause of the obstructions and leak in your drain and sewer pipes will prevent potential harm to your family’s health and your home.
