What triggers a clogged drain?
A clogged up drain is usually a result of the slow build-up of natural substances like hair and grease on the inside walls of drain pipes. In time, this buildup reduces the regular flow of water thru the pipe, similar to cholesterol in the bloodstream. When a jumble of debris or a bunch of hair attempts to pass through the pipe, it can become stuck and totally obstruct the outflow. The result is a clogged tub or kitchen sink drain.
How do you unclog a drain?
While a plunger can sometimes unclog small blockages, a stubborn or constant blockage will require a visit with one of our qualified plumbers who will use a tool called an auger (also called a “snake”). This tool works in a different way than a plunger works. 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 enough power to penetrate tough clogs. Snakes are very handy because they’re long enough to get to obstructions that are stuck deep within a drain pipe and ultimately unclog the drain.
Are there any exceptions? Frequently a clogged sink, tub, shower or even toilet isn’t caused by refuse in your home’s pipes (called the secondary drains). Instead, the clog is the result of foreign obstructions such as tree roots inside the sewer main drain pipe. If our plumber determines that the clog is caused by an obstruction in the sewer main, it may signal that we hydrojet the main line. While we do try very hard to provide up front, transparent pricing, custom jobs such as these will require us to give you a quotation for the work.
Some Common Sewer Main Blockage Causes in Kinnelon
A sewer line blockage is the direct result of an object being flushed down the toilet or washed down the drain. Oftentimes, the object is a toy or toothpaste tube or any variety of things that may accidentally drop into the toilet. The item may clear the toilet but can become caught or snagged within thesewer pipe.
Another problem area is the kitchen sink, particularly sinks with waste disposals.Homeowners often assume it is all right to put all kitchen waste down the disposal. This isnot true– products that should not be placed into a garbage disposal include things like grease, any kind of oil and bones. All the aforementioned items can harm or stop up your home’s drain system. It simply takes a small bit of bone to become trapped in your sewer pipes, grabbing onto other things as they pass by, to create a blockage. Over time, what was a little blockage grows into a larger one, resulting in a total sewer line obstruction.
What Happens Next?
When your main sewer pipe becomes clogged, you will need the services of an experienced plumber. Minor clogs can be gotten rid of by merely removing the sink’s P-trap and clearing out the debris. On the other hand, removing large clogs that lie further in the drain system is more complicated. These kinds of obstructions will call for the plumber to employ a power plumbing snake to reach and bore 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 development of dangerous bacteria that can cause tentanus, Hepatitus A and Giardia. Over time, sewer water damage can cause very severe health conditions particularly in the elderly, children and people who suffer from persistent breathing complications.
Quickly discovering the root cause of the obstructions and leak in your sewer and drain pipes will prevent potential harm to your family’s health and your home.
