Sewer Repair – Cleaning, Clogs, and Relining

With a staff of fully licensed plumbers and 24/7/365 service schedule, your most difficult sewer repair situations are never too far from our fast and professional solutions.

What causes a clogged drain?

A stopped up drain is typically a result of the slow accumulation of organic substances like hair and grease on the inner walls of drain lines. In time, this buildup slows down the regular flow of water thru the pipe, much like cholesterol in the bloodstream. When a jumble of debris or a wad of hair tries to pass through the pipe, it can become stuck 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 unclog minor obstructions, a tough or constant blockage will require a visit from one of our qualified plumbers who will use a tool called an auger (also called a “snake”). This indispensable tool works in a different way than a plunger works. Our plumber will thread the snake into the blockage and crank it to send the snake deeper into the obstruction.

In other cases, the licensed plumber will use an electric snake, which has enough power to penetrate stubborn clogs. Snakes are very good to have around because they are long enough to reach obstructions that are stuck deep inside a drain pipe and ultimately unclog the drain.

Are there any exceptions? Frequently a clogged sink, tub, shower or even toilet is not caused by refuse in your home’s pipes (called the secondary drains). Rather, the clog is the result of foreign obstructions like roots in the sewer main . 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 try very hard to give you up front, transparent pricing, custom jobs like these will necessitate that we give you an estimate for the work.

Some Common Sewer Main Blockage Causes in Dover

A sewer line blockage is the direct outcome of an object 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 fall into the toilet. The object may clear the toilet yet can become caught or snagged within thesewer pipe.

Another area of concern is the kitchen sink, especially sinks with garbage disposals.Homeowners often assume it is all right to put all of the kitchen waste down the garbage disposal. This iscertainly not true– products that should not be sent down into a garbage disposal include grease, any kind of oil and bones. All the aforementioned things can harm or stop up your home’s drain system. It simply takes a small bit of bone to get trapped in your sewer pipes, grabbing onto other things as they pass by, to develop a blockage. In time, what was a small obstruction grows into a bigger one, resulting in a total sewer line blockage.

Is There Hope for My Pipes?

When your main sewer pipe becomes clogged, you will need the service of an experienced plumber. Minor clogs can be gotten rid of by merely removing the sink’s P-trap and flushing out the debris. On the other hand, removing large clogs that lie deeper in the drain line is more complicated. These sorts of obstructions will require the plumber to use a power plumbing snake to reach and bore through the blockage.

Sewage Damages

Contamination is a very legitimate hazard and can cause by sewage leaks. If waste water leaks into your home or office the room must be sanitized and decontaminated to stop development of harmful microorganisms that can cause tentanus, Hepatitus A and Giardia. Over time, sewer water damages can cause very severe health problems particularly in the aged, kids and those who struggle with persistent respiratory complications.

Quickly finding the root cause of the blockage and leak in your drain and sewer pipes will prevent potential harm to your family’s health and your home.
