What causes a stopped up drain?
A clogged drain is generally 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 thru the line, much like cholesterol in the bloodstream. 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 end result is a clogged tub or sink drain.
How do you unclog a drain?
Although a plunger can sometimes unblock minor blockages, a stubborn or persistent clog will require a visit from one of our qualified plumbers who will bring a tool called an auger (also called a “snake”). This tool works in the opposite way than a plunger works. Our plumber will thread the snake into the blockage and crank it to drive the snake deeper into the clog.
In some cases, the licensed plumber will use an electric snake, which has enough power to penetrate stubborn clogs. Snakes are especially good to have around because they are long enough to get to obstructions that are stuck deep inside a drainpipe and ultimately unclog the drain.
Are there any exceptions? Sometimes a clogged sink, tub, shower or even toilet is not caused by refuse 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 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 like these will require us to give you a quotation for the work.
Some Common Sewer Main Clog Causes in Edgewater
A sewer line blockage is the direct result of an item being flushed down the toilet or washed down the drain. Oftentimes, the item is a toy or toothpaste tube or any number of things that may unintentionally fall into the toilet. The item may clear the toilet yet can become caught or snagged within thesewer line.
Another problem area is the kitchen sink, particularly sinks with garbage disposals. People often think it is OK to put all of the kitchen waste down the garbage disposal. This isnot true– products which should never be sent down into a garbage disposal include grease, any kind of oil and bones. All the previously mentioned things can harm or clog your home’s drain pipes. It simply takes a small shard of bone to get trapped in your sewer line, snagging other things as they pass by, to develop a clog. Over time, what was a small blockage grows into a bigger one, resulting in a total sewer line obstruction.
How Does This Get Fixed?
When your primary sewer pipe becomes clogged, you will most likely 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 huge blockages that are located further in the drain line is a lot more difficult. These kinds of obstructions will require the plumber to use a powered plumbing snake to reach and bore through the blockage.
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 prevent growth of harmful bacteria that can cause tentanus, Hepatitus A and Giardia. In time, sewer water damages can cause very severe health conditions particularly in the aged, kids and those who struggle with persistent breathing complications.
Quickly discovering the cause of the blockage and leak in your drain and sewer pipes will prevent harm to your family’s health and your home.
