What causes a clogged drain?
A clogged up drain is generally caused by the slow accumulation of natural substances like hair and grease on the inner walls of drain lines. In time, this buildup slows down the normal flow of water thru the line, similar to cholesterol in the bloodstream. When a clump of debris or a bunch of hair attempts to pass thru the pipe, it can get caught and completely block the outflow. The result is a clogged tub or sink drain.
While a plunger can sometimes unclog minor obstructions, a tough or constant blockage will require a visit from 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 works. Our plumber will push the snake into the clog and crank it to send the snake deeper into the obstruction.
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 are long enough to get to obstructions that are stuck deep inside a drainpipe and finally unclog the drain.
Are there any exceptions? Sometimes a clogged sink, tub, shower or even toilet isn’t caused by debris in your home’s pipes (also called the secondary drains). Instead, the clog is the result of invading obstructions such as tree roots inside the sewer main . If our plumber determines 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 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 Common Sewer Main Blockage Causes in Maplewood
A sewer line clog is the direct result of an item being flushed down the toilet or washed down the drain. Often, the object is a toy or toothpaste tube or any variety of things that may unintentionally drop 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, especially sinks with waste disposals.Homeowners often think it is OK to put all of the kitchen waste down the disposal. This iscertainly not true– items that should not be placed into a garbage disposal include things like grease, any kind of oil and bones. All the previously mentioned items can hurt or clog your home’s drain system. It only takes a small bit of bone to become trapped in your sewer pipes, snagging other items as they pass by, to create a clog. In time, what was a little obstruction grows into a bigger one, causing a total sewer line obstruction.
What Happens Next?
When your main sewer pipe becomes blocked, you will need the service of an experienced plumber. Minor blockages can be cleared by merely removing the sink’s P-trap and flushing out the debris. However, removing huge clogs that lie further in the drain line is more complicated. These kinds of blockages will require the plumber to employ 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 wastewater leaks into your home or office the room must be sanitized and decontaminated to stop growth of harmful microorganisms that can cause tentanus, Hepatitus A and Giardia. In time, sewer water damages can trigger very serious health problems particularly in the aged, children and people who suffer from chronic breathing complications.
Quickly finding the cause of the blockage and leak in your drain and sewer pipes will prevent harm to your family’s health and your home.
