What triggers a stopped up drain?
A clogged drain is generally caused by the slow accumulation of natural matter like hair and grease on the inside walls of drain pipes. In time, this buildup slows down the normal flow of water thru the pipe, much like cholesterol in the bloodstream. When a clump of debris or a wad of hair tries to pass through the pipe, it can get caught and totally obstruct the flow. The result is a stopped up tub or sink drain.
How do I unclog my drain?
Even though a plunger can occasionally unclog small blockages, a stubborn or constant clog will call for a visit from one of our licensed plumbers who will use a tool called an auger (also known as a “snake”). This indispensable tool works in the opposite 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 other cases, the will use an electric snake, which has enough power to get through tough clogs. Snakes are very handy because they’re long enough to reach clogs that are lodged deep within a drain pipe and ultimately unclog the drain.
Are there any exceptions? Frequently a clogged sink, tub, shower or even toilet is not caused by debris in your home’s pipes (called the secondary drains). Rather, the clog is the result of invading obstructions such as tree roots in 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 give you up-front, transparent pricing, custom jobs such as these will necessitate that we give you an estimate for the work.
Some Common Sewer Main Blockage Causes in Glen Rock
A sewer line clog is the direct outcome of an object being flushed down the toilet or washed down the drain. Often, the object is a toy or toothpaste tube or any variety of things that may accidentally drop into the toilet. The object may clear the toilet but can become trapped or snagged within thesewer pipe.
Another problem area is the kitchen sink, particularly sinks with waste disposals. People often think it is all right 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 aforementioned items can harm or clog your house’s drain pipes. It just takes a small shard of bone to get trapped in your sewer pipes, snagging other items as they go by, to create a blockage. In time, what was a little obstruction turns into a bigger one, causing a total sewer line blockage.
How Does This Get Fixed?
When your main sewer line becomes blocked, you will need the service of a professional plumber. Minor obstructions can be gotten rid of by simply removing the sink’s P-trap and flushing out the debris. However, removing large blockages that are located further in the drain line is a lot more complicated. These types of clogs will call for the plumber to employ a powered plumbing snake to reach and cut through the clog.
Contamination is a very legitimate hazard and can cause by sewage leaks. If waste water leaks into your home or office the space must be sanitized and disinfected to prevent growth of dangerous bacteria that can cause tentanus, Hepatitus A and Giardia. In time, sewer water damage can cause very serious health problems especially in the aged, kids and those who suffer from persistent breathing issues.
Quickly discovering the root cause of the blockage and leak in your drain and sewer pipes will prevent potential harm to your family’s health and to your home.
