What causes a blocked drain?
A clogged drain is usually a result of the gradual accumulation of organic matter like hair and grease on the inner walls of drain pipes. Over time, this buildup slows down the regular flow of water through the pipe, much like cholesterol in the bloodstream. When a clump of debris or a bunch of hair tries to pass thru the pipe, it can become caught and completely obstruct the outflow. The result is a clogged shower or kitchen sink drain.
Even though a plunger can sometimes unclog minor obstructions, a tough or persistent clog will require a visit from one of our qualified 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 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 especially handy because they are long enough to get to clogs that are stuck deep within a drain pipe and finally 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 (also called the secondary drains). Rather, the clog is the result of invading obstructions like roots inside the sewer main drain pipe. If our plumber discovers 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 a quotation for the work.
Some Typical Sewer Main Blockage Causes in Florham Park
A sewer line clog 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 yet can become caught or snagged within thesewer pipe.
Another problem area is the kitchen sink, particularly sinks with garbage disposals.Homeowners often think it is OK to put all kitchen waste down the disposal. This iscertainly not true– products which should never be sent down into a garbage disposal include grease, any kind of oil and bones. All the previously mentioned items can harm or clog your home’s drain system. It only takes a small bit of bone to become trapped in your sewer pipes, grabbing onto other items as they pass by, to create a clog. Over time, what was a little obstruction grows into a larger one, resulting in a total sewer line obstruction.
Is There Hope for My Pipes?
When your main sewer pipe becomes blocked, you will need the services of an experienced plumber. Minor blockages can be cleared by merely removing the sink’s P-trap and flushing out the debris. However, removing large clogs that lie further in the drain system is a lot more complicated. These types of clogs will call for the plumber to use a powered plumbing snake to reach and bore through the clog.
Contagion is a very real 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 dangerous bacteria that can cause tentanus, Hepatitus A and Giardia. In time, sewer water damages can trigger very severe health problems especially in the aged, children and people who struggle with chronic breathing issues.
Quickly discovering 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.
