What triggers a blocked drain?
A clogged drain is usually caused by the slow build-up of natural matter such as hair and grease on the inside walls of drain lines. In time, this build-up reduces the normal flow of water through the line, much like cholesterol in the blood vessels. When a jumble of debris or a bunch of hair tries to pass thru the pipe, it can become caught and completely block the outflow. The result is a stopped up tub or kitchen sink drain.
Although a plunger can sometimes unblock minor obstructions, a stubborn or persistent clog will require a visit with one of our qualified plumbers who will bring a tool called an auger (also called a “snake”). This indispensable tool works in the opposite way than a plunger does. Our plumber will push the snake into the clog and use the crank to drive the snake deeper into the clog.
In some cases, the will use an electric snake, which has enough power to get through tough clogs. Snakes are especially handy because they are long enough to get to obstructions that are stuck deep within a drain pipe 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 invading obstructions like roots in the sewer main . If our plumber discovers that the clog is caused by this kind of obstruction in the main sewer drain, 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 an estimate for the work.
Some Typical Sewer Main Blockage Causes in Lodi
A sewer line clog is the direct outcome of an item being flushed down the toilet or washed down the drain. Often, the item is a toy or toothpaste tube or any variety of things that may accidentally fall into the toilet. The item may clear the toilet yet can become trapped or snagged within thesewer pipe.
Another area of concern is the kitchen sink, particularly sinks with garbage disposals.Homeowners often think it is OK to put all of the kitchen waste down the garbage disposal. This iscertainly not true– things which should never 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 system. It just takes a small bit of bone to become trapped in your sewer line, grabbing onto other things as they pass by, to develop a clog. Over time, what was a small blockage turns into a larger one, resulting in a complete sewer line obstruction.
How Does This Get Fixed?
When your primary sewer line becomes clogged, you will need the services of an experienced plumber. Minor blockages can be cleared 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 a lot more difficult. These sorts of blockages will call for the plumber to employ a powered plumbing snake to reach and cut through the blockage.
Contagion is a very real hazard and can cause by sewage leaks. If wastewater leaks into your office or home the room must be sanitized and disinfected to stop development of dangerous bacteria that can cause tentanus, Hepatitus A and Giardia. In time, sewer water damages can cause very severe health problems particularly in the elderly, kids and those who suffer from chronic breathing issues.
Quickly finding the root cause of the blockage and leak in your drain and sewer pipes will prevent harm to your family’s health and your home.
