What triggers a stopped up drain?
A stopped up drain is usually a result of the slow build-up of natural matter such as hair and grease on the inner walls of drain pipes. Over time, this build-up slows down the normal flow of water through the line, much like cholesterol in the bloodstream. When a jumble of debris or a wad of hair attempts to pass through the pipe, it can become stuck and totally obstruct the outflow. The result is a clogged tub or kitchen sink drain.
How do you unclog a drain?
Although a plunger can occasionally unblock small blockages, a tough or persistent blockage will call for a visit from one of our qualified plumbers who will use a tool called an auger (also called a “snake”). This indispensable tool works in a different way than a plunger does. Our plumber will thread 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 enough power to get through tough clogs. Snakes are especially handy because they’re long enough to get to clogs that are lodged deep inside a drainpipe and ultimately 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 (also called the secondary drains). Rather, the clog is the result of foreign obstructions like roots inside the sewer main . If our plumber determines that the clog is caused by an obstruction in the main sewer drain, it may require that we hydrojet the main line. While we try very hard to provide up-front, transparent quotes, custom jobs such as these will necessitate that we give you an estimate for the work.
Some Common Sewer Main Clog Causes in Morris Plains
A sewer line blockage is the direct outcome of an item being flushed down the toilet or washed down the drain. Oftentimes, 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 caught or snagged within thesewer pipe.
Another area of concern is the kitchen sink, especially sinks with waste disposals. People often think it is OK to put all kitchen garbage down the disposal. This isnot true– items that should never be placed into a garbage disposal include grease, any kind of oil and bones. All the aforementioned things can damage or stop up your home’s drain system. It simply takes a small shard of bone to get trapped in your sewer line, snagging other things as they go by, to develop a blockage. Over time, what was a small obstruction turns into a bigger one, causing a total sewer line blockage.
What Happens Next?
When your primary sewer line becomes blocked, you will most likely need the service of a professional plumber. Minor obstructions can be gotten rid of by merely removing the sink’s P-trap and clearing out the debris. On the other hand, removing huge clogs that are located deeper in the drain system is a lot more difficult. These types of blockages will call for the plumber to use a power plumbing snake to get to and bore through the clog.
Contamination 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 growth of harmful microorganisms that can cause tentanus, Hepatitus A and Giardia. Over time, sewer water damages can cause very serious health conditions particularly in the aged, children and those who struggle with chronic breathing complications.
Quickly finding the cause of the blockage and leak in your sewer and drain pipes will prevent harm to your family’s health and to your home.
