What triggers a stopped up drain?
A clogged drain is typically caused by the gradual accumulation of organic substances like hair and grease on the inner walls of drain lines. In time, this buildup slows down the normal flow of water through the pipe, much like cholesterol in the blood vessels. When a jumble of debris or a bunch of hair attempts to pass through the pipe, it can get caught and totally obstruct the outflow. The end result is a stopped up shower or kitchen sink drain.
Although a plunger can sometimes unblock small obstructions, a tough or constant blockage will require a visit with one of our qualified plumbers who will use a tool called an auger (also known as a “snake”). This indispensable tool works in a different way than a plunger works. Our plumber will thread the snake into the blockage and crank it to drive the snake deeper into the clog.
In some cases, the will use an electric snake, which has the power necessary to penetrate tough clogs. Snakes are especially good to have around because they’re long enough to get to obstructions that are lodged deep within a drain pipe and ultimately unclog the drain.
Are there any exceptions? Sometimes a clogged sink, tub, shower or even toilet is not caused by refuse in your home’s pipes (called the secondary drains). Instead, the clog is the result of invading obstructions such as roots in the sewer main . If our plumber determines that the clog is caused by this kind of obstruction in the sewer main, it may signal 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 a quotation for the work.
Some Common Sewer Main Clog Causes in Little Falls
A sewer line clog is the direct outcome of an object 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 fall into the toilet. The object 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. People often think it is all right to put all of the kitchen waste down the disposal. This isnot true– products which should never be sent down into a garbage disposal include grease, oil and bones. All the previously mentioned items can damage or clog your house’s drain pipes. It just takes a small shard of bone to become trapped in your sewer line, grabbing onto other items as they go by, to develop a blockage. In time, what was a small obstruction turns into a bigger one, resulting in a total sewer line blockage.
How Does This Get Fixed?
When your primary 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. On the other hand, removing huge blockages that lie further in the drain system is more difficult. These types of obstructions will require the plumber to use a power plumbing snake to get to and bore through the clog.
Contagion is a very real hazard and can cause by sewage leaks. If waste water leaks into your office or home the space must be sanitized and disinfected to stop development of harmful microorganisms that can cause tentanus, Hepatitus A and Giardia. In time, sewer water damage can trigger very severe health problems particularly in the aged, kids and those who suffer from chronic breathing complications.
Quickly discovering the cause of the blockage and leak in your sewer and drain pipes will prevent potential harm to your family’s health and your home.
