What triggers a clogged drain?
A stopped up drain is usually caused by the gradual accumulation of natural substances like hair and grease on the inner walls of drain lines. Over time, this buildup slows down the regular flow of water thru the line, similar to cholesterol in the blood vessels. When a clump of debris or a wad of hair attempts to pass thru the pipe, it can get stuck and totally obstruct the outflow. The end result is a clogged tub or kitchen sink drain.
While a plunger can sometimes unblock minor blockages, a tough or constant 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 indispensable tool works in the opposite way than a plunger does. Our plumber will push the snake into the blockage and use the crank to send the snake deeper into the obstruction.
In other cases, the licensed plumber will use an electric snake, which has enough power to penetrate tough clogs. Snakes are especially good to have around because they’re long enough to get to clogs that are lodged deep within a drain pipe and finally unclog the drain.
Are there any exceptions? Frequently a clogged sink, tub, shower or even toilet is not caused by refuse in your home’s pipes (called the secondary drains). Rather, the clog is the result of foreign obstructions such as roots inside the sewer main drain pipe. If our plumber discovers that the clog is caused by this kind of 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 necessitate that we give you a quotation for the work.
Some Common Sewer Main Blockage Causes in Hanover
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 yet can become caught or snagged within thesewer line.
Another area of concern is the kitchen sink, particularly sinks with garbage disposals. People often assume it is all right to put all of the kitchen garbage down the garbage disposal. This iscertainly not true– items that should never be sent down into a garbage disposal include things like grease, any kind of oil and bones. All the aforementioned items can hurt or stop up your house’s drain pipes. It just takes a small shard of bone to get trapped in your sewer pipes, grabbing onto other items as they pass by, to develop a clog. In time, what was a small blockage turns into a bigger one, causing a complete sewer line blockage.
How Does This Get Fixed?
When your main sewer pipe becomes blocked, 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. However, removing huge clogs that lie deeper in the drain system is more difficult. These sorts of obstructions will call for the plumber to use a powered plumbing snake to get to and cut through the clog.
Contagion is a very real hazard and can cause by sewage leaks. If waste water leaks into your home or office the space must be sanitized and decontaminated to prevent growth of dangerous bacteria that can cause tentanus, Hepatitus A and Giardia. Over time, sewer water damage can trigger very severe health conditions especially in the aged, children and those who suffer from persistent breathing issues.
Quickly finding the cause of the blockage and leak in your sewer and drain pipes will prevent potential harm to your family’s health and to your home.
