What triggers a stopped up drain?
A clogged up drain is typically caused by the gradual build-up of natural substances such as hair and grease on the inner walls of drain lines. Over time, this build-up reduces the normal flow of water thru the pipe, much like cholesterol in the blood vessels. When a clump of debris or a bunch of hair tries to pass thru the pipe, it can become stuck and totally obstruct the flow. The end result is a stopped up tub or sink drain.
How do you unclog a drain?
While a plunger can occasionally unclog small obstructions, a stubborn or persistent clog will require a visit with 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 does. Our plumber will push the snake into the clog and use the crank to drive the snake deeper into the clog.
In other cases, the will use an electric snake, which has the power necessary to get through stubborn clogs. Snakes are especially good to have around because they’re long enough to get to obstructions that are lodged deep within a drain pipe and ultimately unclog the drain.
Are there any exceptions? Sometimes a clogged sink, tub, shower or even toilet is not caused by debris in your home’s pipes (also called the secondary drains). Instead, the clog is the result of invading obstructions like roots inside the sewer main . If our plumber discovers that the clog is caused by an obstruction in the sewer main, it may require that we hydrojet the main line. While we try very hard to give you up front, transparent quotes, custom jobs such as these will require us to give you a quotation for the work.
Some Common Sewer Main Blockage Causes in Cresskill
A sewer line blockage is the direct result of an item being flushed down the toilet or washed down the drain. Often, the item is a toy or toothpaste tube or any number of things that may accidentally drop into the toilet. The object may clear the toilet but can become caught or snagged within thesewer pipe.
Another area of concern is the kitchen sink, especially sinks with waste disposals.Homeowners often think it is OK to put all kitchen waste down the disposal. This iscertainly not true– things which should not be placed into a garbage disposal include grease, oil and bones. All the previously mentioned items can hurt or clog your home’s drain system. It just takes a small bit of bone to get trapped in your sewer pipes, snagging other items as they pass by, to develop a clog. In time, what was a small obstruction grows into a bigger one, causing a complete sewer line blockage.
Is There Hope for My Pipes?
When your main sewer pipe becomes blocked, you will need the services of a professional plumber. Minor clogs can be cleared by merely removing the sink’s P-trap and flushing out the debris. However, removing large blockages that lie further in the drain line is a lot more complicated. These types of clogs will call for the plumber to employ a powered plumbing snake to reach and cut through the blockage.
Contamination is a very real hazard and can result from sewage leaks. If wastewater leaks into your home or office the room must be sanitized and decontaminated to stop development of dangerous bacteria that can cause tentanus, Hepatitus A and Giardia. In time, sewer water damage can trigger very serious health conditions particularly in the aged, kids and people who struggle with persistent breathing issues.
Quickly finding the root cause of the obstructions and leak in your drain and sewer pipes will prevent harm to your family’s health and your home.
