What triggers a clogged drain?
A stopped up drain is generally a result of the gradual build-up of organic matter such as hair and grease on the inner walls of drain lines. Over time, this build-up slows down the regular flow of water thru the pipe, much like cholesterol in the bloodstream. When a jumble of debris or a bunch of hair tries to pass through the pipe, it can become stuck and totally block the outflow. The end result is a stopped up bathtub or kitchen sink drain.
Although a plunger can sometimes unblock small obstructions, a stubborn or persistent clog will call for 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 a different way than a plunger works. Our plumber will thread the snake into the blockage and use the crank 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 get through stubborn clogs. Snakes are very handy because they’re long enough to reach obstructions that are stuck deep inside a drainpipe and ultimately unclog the drain.
Are there any exceptions? Sometimes a clogged sink, tub, shower or even toilet is not caused by debris in your home’s pipes (called the secondary drains). Instead, the clog is the result of foreign obstructions such as roots in the sewer main drain pipe. If our plumber discovers that the clog is caused by this kind of obstruction in the main sewer drain, it may require that we hydrojet the main line. While we do try very hard to give you up-front, transparent quotes, custom jobs such as these will necessitate that we give you an estimate for the work.
Some Common Sewer Main Clog Causes in Little Ferry
A sewer line blockage is the direct outcome of an object being flushed down the toilet or washed down the drain. Often, the item 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 trapped or snagged within thesewer pipe.
Another problem area is the kitchen sink, particularly sinks with waste disposals.Homeowners often think it is all right to put all kitchen waste down the disposal. This iscertainly not true– items which should not be placed into a garbage disposal include things like grease, oil and bones. All the previously mentioned items can hurt or clog your house’s drain pipes. It just takes a small bit of bone to get trapped in your sewer pipes, snagging other items as they go by, to create a clog. Over time, what was a little blockage grows into a larger one, causing a complete sewer line blockage.
Is There Hope for My Pipes?
When your primary sewer line becomes clogged, you will most likely need the services of an experienced plumber. Minor clogs can be gotten rid of by simply removing the sink’s P-trap and clearing out the debris. However, removing large clogs that lie deeper in the drain system is a lot more difficult. These kinds of clogs will require the plumber to employ a powered plumbing snake to get to and cut through the blockage.
Contagion is a very legitimate hazard and can result from sewage leaks. If wastewater leaks into your home or office 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 trigger very severe health conditions particularly in the aged, children and those who suffer from persistent respiratory complications.
Quickly discovering the cause of the obstructions and leak in your sewer and drain pipes will prevent harm to your family’s health and your home.
