What triggers a clogged drain?
A clogged drain is usually a result of the slow accumulation of natural substances such as hair and grease on the inside walls of drain pipes. Over time, this build-up reduces the regular flow of water thru the line, much like cholesterol in the blood vessels. When a clump of debris or a bunch of hair tries to pass thru the pipe, it can become stuck and completely obstruct the flow. The result is a stopped up bathtub or sink drain.
How do you unclog a drain?
Although a plunger can occasionally unclog small 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 a different way than a plunger does. Our plumber will push the snake into the clog and use the crank to send the snake deeper into the clog.
In other cases, the will use an electric snake, which has the power necessary to penetrate stubborn clogs. Snakes are very good to have around because they are long enough to reach clogs that are stuck deep within a drainpipe 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 (called the secondary drains). Instead, the clog is the result of invading obstructions like roots inside the sewer main . 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 give you up front, transparent pricing, custom jobs like these will necessitate that we give you a quotation for the work.
Some Typical Sewer Main Clog Causes in Madison
A sewer line blockage is the direct result of an item being flushed down the toilet or washed down the drain. Oftentimes, the item 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, especially sinks with waste disposals.Homeowners often assume it is OK to put all of the kitchen garbage down the disposal. This isnot true– products which should not be placed into a garbage disposal include grease, oil and bones. All the aforementioned things can hurt or stop up your house’s drain system. It only takes a small shard of bone to become trapped in your sewer line, snagging other items as they go by, to create a blockage. In time, what was a little blockage turns into a larger one, resulting in a total sewer line obstruction.
Is There Hope for My Pipes?
When your primary sewer line becomes blocked, you will need the service of a professional plumber. Minor blockages can be gotten rid of by merely removing the sink’s P-trap and clearing out the debris. However, removing large blockages that are located deeper in the drain line is a lot more complicated. These kinds of obstructions will call for the plumber to use a power plumbing snake to reach and bore through the clog.
Contagion is a very real hazard and can result from sewage leaks. If wastewater leaks into your office or home the room must be sanitized and disinfected to prevent growth of dangerous microorganisms that can cause tentanus, Hepatitus A and Giardia. In time, sewer water damage can cause very serious health conditions particularly in the elderly, kids and people who suffer from persistent respiratory issues.
Quickly discovering the cause of the blockage and leak in your drain and sewer pipes will prevent potential harm to your family’s health and your home.
