What causes a stopped up drain?
A clogged up drain is typically a result of the slow build-up of organic substances like hair and grease on the inner walls of drain pipes. In time, this buildup slows down the regular flow of water thru the line, much like cholesterol in the blood vessels. When a clump of debris or a bunch of hair attempts to pass thru the pipe, it can become stuck and totally obstruct the outflow. The result is a clogged bathtub or kitchen sink drain.
Even though a plunger can occasionally unblock minor blockages, a tough or persistent clog will require a visit from one of our licensed plumbers who will use 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 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 tough clogs. Snakes are especially good to have around because they’re long enough to reach clogs that are lodged deep within a drainpipe and ultimately unclog the drain.
Are there any exceptions? Frequently 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 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 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 require us to give you an estimate for the work.
Some Typical Sewer Main Clog Causes in Demarest
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 fall into the toilet. The object may clear the toilet yet can become caught or snagged within thesewer line.
Another problem area is the kitchen sink, especially sinks with garbage disposals. People often assume it is all right to put all of the kitchen waste down the garbage disposal. This isnot true– things which should never be placed into a garbage disposal include things like grease, oil and bones. All the previously mentioned things can damage or clog your home’s drain pipes. It just takes a small bit of bone to become trapped in your sewer line, grabbing onto other things as they go by, to develop a blockage. In time, what was a little blockage grows into a bigger one, causing a complete sewer line obstruction.
Is There Hope for My Pipes?
When your primary sewer line becomes clogged, you will most likely need the services of a professional plumber. Minor clogs can be cleared by simply 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 difficult. These types of clogs will call for the plumber to use a powered plumbing snake to reach and cut through the clog.
Contagion is a very legitimate hazard and can cause by sewage leaks. If wastewater leaks into your office or home the room must be sanitized and disinfected to prevent development of harmful microorganisms that can cause tentanus, Hepatitus A and Giardia. Over time, sewer water damage can trigger very serious health problems particularly in the aged, children and people who struggle with chronic respiratory issues.
Quickly finding the root cause of the blockage and leak in your sewer and drain pipes will prevent harm to your family’s health and to your home.
