Few situations are really as stressful as a sudden leak in your home’s water or sewer pipes.

What causes a stopped up drain?
A clogged up drain is generally a result of the slow build-up of organic substances like hair and grease on the inside walls of drain pipes. In time, this buildup slows down the normal flow of water through the line, much like cholesterol in the blood vessels. When a clump of debris or a wad of hair attempts to pass thru the pipe, it can become caught and totally block the flow. The result is a stopped up shower or kitchen sink drain.
Even though a plunger can sometimes unclog minor blockages, a tough or persistent blockage will call for a visit with one of our qualified plumbers who will use 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 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 the power necessary to penetrate tough clogs. Snakes are very handy because they’re long enough to reach clogs that are stuck deep inside a drainpipe 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). Instead, 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 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 like these will require us to give you an estimate for the work.
Some Common Sewer Main Clog Causes in Haledon
A sewer line blockage is the direct result of an item being flushed down the toilet or washed down the drain. Oftentimes, the object is a toy or toothpaste tube or any number of things that may unintentionally drop into the toilet. The object may clear the toilet but can become trapped or snagged within thesewer line.
Another problem area is the kitchen sink, particularly sinks with waste disposals. People often think it is OK to put all of the kitchen waste down the garbage disposal. This iscertainly not true– products that should never be sent down into a garbage disposal include things like grease, oil and bones. All the previously mentioned things can damage or clog your house’s drain pipes. It just takes a small shard of bone to become trapped in your sewer line, snagging other items as they pass by, to develop a blockage. In time, what was a small obstruction grows into a bigger one, causing a total sewer line obstruction.
Is There Hope for My Pipes?
When your main sewer pipe becomes clogged, you will most likely need the services of a professional plumber. Minor clogs can be cleared by simply removing the sink’s P-trap and flushing out the debris. On the other hand, removing huge blockages that lie further in the drain line is a lot more complicated. These sorts of clogs will call for the plumber to employ a powered plumbing snake to get to and cut through the blockage.
Contagion is a very real hazard and can cause by sewage leaks. If waste water leaks into your office or home the room must be sanitized and decontaminated to stop growth of dangerous bacteria that can cause tentanus, Hepatitus A and Giardia. Over time, sewer water damages can cause very serious health problems particularly in the elderly, kids and those who suffer from persistent breathing issues.
Quickly discovering the root cause of the blockage and leak in your sewer and drain pipes will prevent potential harm to your family’s health and your home.
