What causes a blocked drain?
A stopped up drain is usually a result of the gradual accumulation of organic substances like hair and grease on the inner walls of drain pipes. In time, this buildup slows down the normal flow of water through the line, similar to cholesterol in the bloodstream. When a clump of debris or a wad of hair attempts to pass through the pipe, it can get stuck and totally obstruct the flow. The result is a clogged shower or sink drain.
How do I unclog my drain?
While a plunger can sometimes unblock minor obstructions, a tough or persistent clog will call for a visit from one of our licensed plumbers who will bring 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 blockage and crank it to send the snake deeper into the clog.
In some cases, the will use an electric snake, which has the power necessary to get through tough clogs. Snakes are very handy because they are long enough to get to clogs that are lodged deep inside a drain pipe and finally unclog the drain.
Are there any exceptions? Frequently a clogged sink, tub, shower or even toilet is not 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 . 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 provide up front, transparent quotes, custom jobs like these will necessitate that we give you a quotation for the work.
Some Typical Sewer Main Blockage Causes in Montville
A sewer line clog is the direct outcome of an item 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 fall 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 assume it is all right to put all kitchen waste down the disposal. This isnot true– products which should not be sent down into a garbage disposal include grease, oil and bones. All the aforementioned items can harm or stop up your house’s drain pipes. It just takes a small shard of bone to get trapped in your sewer pipes, grabbing onto other items as they go by, to develop a clog. In time, what was a little obstruction grows into a larger one, causing a complete sewer line blockage.
Is There Hope for My Pipes?
When your main sewer line becomes blocked, you will need the services of a professional plumber. Minor blockages can be cleared by simply removing the sink’s P-trap and clearing out the debris. However, removing huge blockages that lie further in the drain system is more difficult. These types of blockages will call for the plumber to use a power plumbing snake to reach and bore through the blockage.
Contamination is a very real hazard and can result from sewage leaks. If waste water 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 severe health conditions particularly in the elderly, children and people who suffer from persistent respiratory complications.
Quickly finding the root cause of the blockage and leak in your sewer and drain pipes will prevent potential harm to your family’s health and your home.
