With a crew of fully licensed plumbers and 24/7 service availability, your most difficult sewer repair emergencies are never too far from our fast and expert solutions.

What triggers a blocked drain?

A clogged up drain is typically a result of the gradual build-up of natural substances like hair and grease on the inside walls of drain lines. In time, this buildup slows down the regular flow of water through the pipe, similar to cholesterol in the bloodstream. When a jumble of debris or a wad of hair tries to pass thru the pipe, it can get caught and completely obstruct the outflow. The result is a stopped up tub or kitchen sink drain.

How do I unclog my drain?

Although a plunger can sometimes unclog small blockages, a stubborn or constant clog will call for a visit from one of our licensed plumbers who will bring a tool called an auger (also known as a “snake”). This tool works in a different way than a plunger does. Our plumber will thread the snake into the clog and crank it to drive the snake deeper into the clog.

In other cases, the licensed plumber will use an electric snake, which has the power necessary to penetrate stubborn clogs. Snakes are especially handy because they’re long enough to reach obstructions that are stuck deep within a drainpipe and finally 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 like tree roots in the sewer main drain pipe. If our plumber determines that the clog is caused by an obstruction in the main sewer drain, it may require that we hydrojet the main line. While we do try very hard to give you up front, transparent quotes, custom jobs like these will require us to give you an estimate for the work.

Some Typical Sewer Main Clog Causes in Essex Fells

A sewer line clog is the direct outcome of an object being flushed down the toilet or washed down the drain. Often, the item is a toy or toothpaste tube or any variety of things that may accidentally fall into the toilet. The item may clear the toilet but can become trapped or snagged within thesewer line.

Another area of concern is the kitchen sink, especially sinks with waste disposals.Homeowners often assume it is OK to put all of the kitchen waste down the disposal. This iscertainly not true– products that should never be placed into a garbage disposal include things like grease, any kind of oil and bones. All the previously mentioned things can hurt or clog your home’s drain pipes. It simply takes a small bit of bone to get trapped in your sewer pipes, snagging other things as they pass by, to create a blockage. In time, what was a small obstruction grows into a larger one, resulting in a total sewer line blockage.

What Happens Next?

When your main sewer line becomes clogged, you will need the services of an experienced plumber. Minor blockages can be cleared by merely removing the sink’s P-trap and clearing out the debris. On the other hand, removing huge blockages that lie further in the drain line is a lot more complicated. These types of obstructions will call for the plumber to employ a powered plumbing snake to reach and bore through the clog.

Sewage Hazards

Contamination is a very legitimate hazard and can result from sewage leaks. If wastewater leaks into your office or home the room must be sanitized and disinfected to stop growth of dangerous bacteria that can cause tentanus, Hepatitus A and Giardia. In time, sewer water damages can cause very severe health problems especially in the aged, kids and people who suffer from persistent breathing issues.

Quickly finding 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.
