What triggers a blocked drain?
A stopped up drain is typically caused by the slow build-up of organic matter like hair and grease on the inside walls of drain pipes. Over time, this buildup reduces the regular flow of water thru the line, much like cholesterol in the blood vessels. When a jumble of debris or a wad of hair tries to pass through the pipe, it can get stuck and completely block the outflow. The result is a stopped up shower or sink drain.
How do I unclog my drain?
Even though a plunger can occasionally unclog minor blockages, a stubborn 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 does. Our plumber will push the snake into the blockage and crank it to drive the snake deeper into the obstruction.
In some cases, the will use an electric snake, which has the power necessary to penetrate stubborn clogs. Snakes are very good to have around because they are long enough to reach obstructions that are lodged deep within a drainpipe and ultimately unclog the drain.
Are there any exceptions? Sometimes 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 like roots inside the sewer main drain pipe. If our plumber determines 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 provide up front, transparent pricing, custom jobs like these will require us to give you an estimate for the work.
Some Typical Sewer Main Blockage Causes in East Rutherford
A sewer line blockage is the direct result of an object 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 trapped or snagged within thesewer line.
Another area of concern is the kitchen sink, especially sinks with garbage disposals.Homeowners often assume it is OK to put all of the kitchen garbage down the garbage disposal. This iscertainly not true– items that should not be sent down into a garbage disposal include grease, oil and bones. All the previously mentioned things can hurt or stop up your home’s drain pipes. It just takes a small bit of bone to become trapped in your sewer pipes, snagging other things as they go by, to create a clog. In time, what was a little obstruction grows into a bigger one, causing a complete sewer line obstruction.
Is There Hope for My Pipes?
When your main sewer line becomes blocked, you will need the service of an experienced plumber. Minor blockages can be gotten rid of by merely removing the sink’s P-trap and clearing out the debris. However, removing large clogs that lie further in the drain line is a lot more complicated. These types of obstructions will call for the plumber to employ a power plumbing snake to reach and bore through the blockage.
Contagion is a very legitimate hazard and can cause by sewage leaks. If wastewater leaks into your office or home the space must be sanitized and disinfected to stop growth of harmful microorganisms that can cause tentanus, Hepatitus A and Giardia. In time, sewer water damage can trigger very severe health conditions especially in the aged, kids and people who suffer from persistent respiratory complications.
Quickly finding the cause of the obstructions and leak in your drain and sewer pipes will prevent harm to your family’s health and to your home.
