What triggers a stopped up drain?
A stopped up drain is generally a result of the slow build-up of natural substances like hair and grease on the inside walls of drain lines. Over time, this buildup reduces the regular flow of water thru the pipe, much like cholesterol in the bloodstream. When a clump of debris or a wad of hair tries to pass thru the pipe, it can become stuck and totally block the flow. The end result is a clogged bathtub or sink drain.
How do I unclog my drain?
Even though a plunger can sometimes unblock small blockages, a stubborn or constant clog will require a visit with one of our licensed plumbers who will bring a tool called an auger (also called a “snake”). This tool works in the opposite way than a plunger does. Our plumber will push the snake into the blockage and crank it to send the snake deeper into the clog.
In other cases, the licensed plumber will use an electric snake, which has the power necessary to get through stubborn clogs. Snakes are very good to have around because they are long enough to reach obstructions that are stuck deep within a drain pipe and ultimately 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 (also called the secondary drains). Rather, the clog is the result of invading obstructions such as roots in the sewer main drain pipe. If our plumber discovers that the clog is caused by this kind of obstruction in the sewer main, it may require that we hydrojet the main line. While we try very hard to provide up-front, transparent quotes, custom jobs like these will require us to give you an estimate for the work.
Some Common Sewer Main Blockage Causes in Morris
A sewer line clog is the direct result of an item being flushed down the toilet or washed down the drain. Often, the item is a toy or toothpaste tube or any number of things that may unintentionally drop into the toilet. The item may clear the toilet but can become trapped or snagged within thesewer line.
Another problem area is the kitchen sink, especially sinks with waste disposals. People often assume it is OK to put all of the kitchen garbage down the garbage disposal. This iscertainly not true– items that should never be sent down into a garbage disposal include grease, oil and bones. All the previously mentioned items can hurt or stop up your home’s drain system. It only takes a small bit of bone to become trapped in your sewer line, snagging other items as they go by, to create a clog. Over time, what was a small obstruction grows into a larger one, resulting in a complete sewer line blockage.
How Does This Get Fixed?
When your main sewer pipe becomes clogged, you will need the services of an experienced plumber. Minor obstructions can be cleared by simply removing the sink’s P-trap and clearing out the debris. On the other hand, removing huge clogs that lie further in the drain system is more difficult. These kinds of clogs will require the plumber to use a powered plumbing snake to get to and cut through the blockage.
Contagion is a very legitimate hazard and can cause by sewage leaks. If wastewater leaks into your home or office the room must be sanitized and disinfected to stop development of dangerous bacteria that can cause tentanus, Hepatitus A and Giardia. Over time, sewer water damage can cause very serious health problems particularly in the elderly, children and people who suffer from chronic respiratory complications.
Quickly finding the cause of the obstructions and leak in your drain and sewer pipes will prevent harm to your family’s health and your home.
