What triggers a blocked drain?
A clogged up drain is usually caused by the slow accumulation of organic matter like hair and grease on the inner walls of drain lines. In time, this build-up reduces the normal flow of water thru the line, similar to cholesterol in the blood vessels. When a clump of debris or a wad of hair attempts to pass through the pipe, it can become caught and completely block the outflow. The result is a stopped up shower or sink drain.
Even though a plunger can occasionally unclog minor obstructions, a tough or constant blockage will call for a visit with one of our licensed plumbers who will use a tool called an auger (also known as a “snake”). This 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 clog.
In other cases, the licensed plumber will use an electric snake, which has enough power to get through stubborn clogs. Snakes are especially good to have around because they are long enough to reach 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 refuse in your home’s pipes (called the secondary drains). Rather, the clog is the result of foreign obstructions such as tree roots in the sewer main drain pipe. 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 do try very hard to give you up front, transparent pricing, custom jobs such as these will necessitate that we give you a quotation for the work.
Some Typical Sewer Main Clog Causes in Montvale
A sewer line blockage is the direct result of an object being flushed down the toilet or washed down the drain. Oftentimes, the item is a toy or toothpaste tube or any number of things that may unintentionally fall into the toilet. The object may clear the toilet yet can become caught or snagged within thesewer line.
Another area of concern is the kitchen sink, especially sinks with garbage disposals. People often think it is all right to put all of the kitchen garbage down the disposal. This iscertainly not true– items that should never be placed into a garbage disposal include things like grease, oil and bones. All the aforementioned 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, grabbing onto other things as they go by, to create a blockage. Over time, what was a small obstruction grows into a larger one, causing a complete sewer line blockage.
What Happens Next?
When your primary sewer line 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 large clogs that are located deeper in the drain line is a lot more complicated. These kinds of blockages will call for the plumber to use a power plumbing snake to get to and cut through the blockage.
Contamination is a very legitimate hazard and can cause by sewage leaks. If waste water leaks into your home or office the room must be sanitized and decontaminated to stop growth of dangerous microorganisms that can cause tentanus, Hepatitus A and Giardia. Over time, sewer water damage can trigger very severe health problems especially in the aged, children and people who suffer from persistent breathing complications.
Quickly discovering the root cause of the blockage and leak in your sewer and drain pipes will prevent potential harm to your family’s health and to your home.
