What triggers a clogged drain?
A clogged drain is typically a result of the gradual build-up of natural matter like hair and grease on the inside walls of drain lines. Over time, this build-up slows down the regular flow of water through the line, much like cholesterol in the blood vessels. When a jumble of debris or a wad of hair attempts to pass thru the pipe, it can get stuck and totally block the outflow. The end result is a stopped up tub or sink drain.
How do you unclog a drain?
Although a plunger can occasionally unclog small blockages, a stubborn or persistent clog will require a visit from one of our qualified plumbers who will use a tool called an auger (also known as 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 obstruction.
In some cases, the will use an electric snake, which has enough power to get through tough clogs. Snakes are especially handy 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 is not caused by debris in your home’s pipes (also called the secondary drains). Rather, the clog is the result of foreign obstructions such as roots inside the sewer main . If our plumber determines 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 provide up-front, transparent quotes, custom jobs such as these will require us to give you a quotation for the work.
Some Typical Sewer Main Blockage Causes in East Orange
A sewer line blockage is the direct result 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 accidentally fall 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. People often assume it is all right to put all kitchen waste down the disposal. This iscertainly not true– products that should never be placed into a garbage disposal include grease, oil and bones. All the aforementioned items can hurt or stop up your home’s drain system. It only takes a small shard of bone to get trapped in your sewer line, snagging other items as they pass by, to create a clog. Over time, what was a little obstruction turns into a larger one, causing a total sewer line obstruction.
How Does This Get Fixed?
When your primary sewer pipe becomes clogged, you will need the service of a professional plumber. Minor clogs can be gotten rid of by simply 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 kinds of blockages will call for the plumber to use a power plumbing snake to get to and bore through the blockage.
Contamination is a very legitimate hazard and can result from sewage leaks. If wastewater leaks into your home or office the space must be sanitized and disinfected to prevent development of dangerous bacteria that can cause tentanus, Hepatitus A and Giardia. Over time, sewer water damages can trigger very severe health conditions particularly in the aged, children and those who suffer from persistent respiratory issues.
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.
