What causes a stopped up drain?
A clogged drain is usually a result of the slow accumulation of organic substances such as hair and grease on the inner walls of drain pipes. Over time, this build-up slows down the regular flow of water through the pipe, much like cholesterol in the bloodstream. When a clump of debris or a bunch of hair attempts to pass through the pipe, it can get caught and totally obstruct the outflow. The result is a stopped up bathtub or sink drain.
While a plunger can occasionally unblock minor blockages, a tough or persistent blockage will call for 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 crank it to drive the snake deeper into the clog.
In other cases, the will use an electric snake, which has enough power to penetrate tough clogs. Snakes are especially handy because they’re long enough to get to clogs 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 debris in your home’s pipes (called the secondary drains). Instead, the clog is the result of invading obstructions such as tree roots inside the sewer main drain pipe. 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 do try very hard to give you up front, transparent pricing, custom jobs such as these will require us to give you an estimate for the work.
Some Common Sewer Main Clog Causes in Midland Park
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 variety of things that may unintentionally drop into the toilet. The object may clear the toilet but can become trapped or snagged within thesewer line.
Another area of concern is the kitchen sink, especially sinks with waste disposals. People often assume it is all right to put all of the kitchen waste down the garbage disposal. This isnot true– items that should never be sent down into a garbage disposal include grease, oil and bones. All the previously mentioned things can hurt or stop up your home’s drain pipes. It only takes a small bit of bone to get trapped in your sewer pipes, snagging other things as they pass by, to create a blockage. Over time, what was a small obstruction grows into a bigger one, causing a complete sewer line obstruction.
How Does This Get Fixed?
When your primary sewer pipe becomes clogged, you will most likely need the services of an experienced plumber. Minor obstructions 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 line is a lot more complicated. These types of clogs will call for the plumber to employ a power plumbing snake to get to and cut through the clog.
Contagion is a very legitimate hazard and can cause by sewage leaks. If wastewater leaks into your office or home the space must be sanitized and disinfected to prevent development of harmful microorganisms that can cause tentanus, Hepatitus A and Giardia. Over time, sewer water damages can trigger very severe health conditions especially in the elderly, kids and people who suffer from persistent respiratory complications.
Quickly finding the root cause of the blockage and leak in your drain and sewer pipes will prevent potential harm to your family’s health and your home.
