What triggers a stopped up drain?
A clogged drain is generally a result of the gradual accumulation of natural substances such as hair and grease on the inner walls of drain lines. In time, this buildup slows down the normal flow of water thru the pipe, similar to cholesterol in the bloodstream. When a jumble of debris or a wad of hair tries to pass through the pipe, it can become stuck and totally obstruct the flow. The end result is a clogged shower or sink drain.
Although a plunger can occasionally unclog small obstructions, a tough or constant blockage will call for a visit from one of our licensed plumbers who will bring a tool called an auger (also called a “snake”). This tool works in a different way than a plunger works. Our plumber will thread the snake into the blockage and use the crank to send the snake deeper into the obstruction.
In some cases, the will use an electric snake, which has the power necessary to penetrate stubborn clogs. Snakes are very handy because they are long enough to reach clogs that are lodged 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 (also called the secondary drains). Rather, the clog is the result of invading obstructions such as 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 try very hard to give you up front, transparent pricing, custom jobs like these will require us to give you a quotation for the work.
Some Common Sewer Main Clog Causes in Mine Hill
A sewer line clog is the direct outcome of an object 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 accidentally drop into the toilet. The item may clear the toilet yet can become trapped or snagged within thesewer line.
Another problem area is the kitchen sink, particularly sinks with garbage disposals. People often think it is all right to put all kitchen garbage down the garbage disposal. This isnot true– things that should not be placed into a garbage disposal include things like grease, oil and bones. All the aforementioned items can damage or clog your home’s drain system. It only takes a small bit of bone to get trapped in your sewer line, grabbing onto other things as they pass by, to develop a blockage. Over time, what was a little blockage grows into a larger one, resulting in a total sewer line blockage.
Is There Hope for My Pipes?
When your primary sewer line becomes blocked, you will most likely need the services of an experienced plumber. Minor obstructions can be cleared by simply removing the sink’s P-trap and flushing out the debris. However, removing huge clogs that lie deeper in the drain system is a lot more difficult. These types of blockages will call for the plumber to employ a powered plumbing snake to get to and cut through the blockage.
Contamination 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 decontaminated to stop development 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 elderly, kids and people who struggle with persistent respiratory complications.
Quickly finding the root cause of the blockage and leak in your sewer and drain pipes will prevent harm to your family’s health and your home.
