What triggers a blocked drain?
A clogged up drain is usually caused by the slow accumulation of organic substances like hair and grease on the inside walls of drain lines. Over time, this buildup slows down the regular flow of water through the line, similar to cholesterol in the blood vessels. When a clump of debris or a wad of hair tries to pass thru the pipe, it can become caught and totally block the outflow. The result is a clogged bathtub or kitchen sink drain.
How do I unclog my drain?
Even though a plunger can sometimes unblock small blockages, a tough or persistent blockage will call for a visit with one of our licensed plumbers who will use a tool called an auger (also called a “snake”). This indispensable tool works in a different way than a plunger does. Our plumber will thread the snake into the clog and use the crank to send the snake deeper into the clog.
In some cases, the licensed plumber will use an electric snake, which has enough power to get through tough clogs. Snakes are very handy because they are long enough to get to obstructions that are lodged deep within a drain pipe 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 invading obstructions such as tree roots inside the sewer main drain pipe. If our plumber discovers that the clog is caused by an obstruction in the main sewer drain, it may signal that we hydrojet the main line. While we do try very hard to give you up front, transparent pricing, custom jobs such as these will require us to give you an estimate for the work.
Some Common Sewer Main Blockage Causes in Denville
A sewer line clog is the direct outcome of an item being flushed down the toilet or washed down the drain. Oftentimes, the item is a toy or toothpaste tube or any variety of things that may accidentally drop into the toilet. The object may clear the toilet but can become trapped or snagged within thesewer line.
Another area of concern is the kitchen sink, especially sinks with garbage disposals. People often think it is all right to put all of the kitchen waste down the garbage disposal. This iscertainly not true– things which should not be placed into a garbage disposal include things like grease, any kind of oil and bones. All the aforementioned items can hurt or clog your house’s drain system. It simply takes a small shard of bone to become trapped in your sewer line, snagging other items as they pass by, to develop a blockage. In time, what was a little obstruction grows into a larger one, resulting in a complete sewer line obstruction.
What Happens Next?
When your primary sewer line becomes blocked, you will need the services of a professional plumber. Minor blockages can be gotten rid of by simply removing the sink’s P-trap and flushing out the debris. On the other hand, removing large blockages that lie deeper in the drain line is a lot more complicated. These sorts of obstructions will call for the plumber to employ a powered plumbing snake to reach and bore through the clog.
Contamination is a very real hazard and can cause by sewage leaks. If wastewater leaks into your home or office the room must be sanitized and decontaminated to prevent growth of harmful microorganisms that can cause tentanus, Hepatitus A and Giardia. Over time, sewer water damage can trigger very serious health problems especially in the elderly, children and those who struggle with chronic breathing issues.
Quickly discovering the cause of the blockage and leak in your drain and sewer pipes will prevent potential harm to your family’s health and your home.
