What triggers a stopped up drain?
A clogged up drain is typically caused by the gradual build-up of organic substances such as hair and grease on the inner walls of drain pipes. In time, this buildup reduces the normal flow of water through the pipe, similar to cholesterol in the blood vessels. When a jumble of debris or a wad of hair tries to pass through the pipe, it can get stuck and totally obstruct the flow. The end result is a stopped up bathtub or kitchen sink drain.
How do I unclog my drain?
Even though a plunger can sometimes unblock minor obstructions, a tough or persistent clog will require a visit with one of our qualified plumbers who will use a tool called an auger (also known as a “snake”). This tool works in a different way than a plunger does. Our plumber will thread the snake into the clog and crank it to drive 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 get to obstructions that are stuck deep inside a drainpipe and finally unclog the drain.
Are there any exceptions? Frequently a clogged sink, tub, shower or even toilet is not caused by refuse in your home’s pipes (called the secondary drains). Instead, the clog is the result of foreign obstructions like tree roots in the sewer main drain pipe. If our plumber discovers that the clog is caused by this kind of obstruction in the main sewer drain, it may require 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 an estimate for the work.
Some Common Sewer Main Blockage Causes in Mount Arlington
A sewer line clog is the direct outcome of an item 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 caught or snagged within thesewer line.
Another problem area is the kitchen sink, especially sinks with garbage disposals. People often assume it is all right to put all kitchen garbage down the garbage disposal. This iscertainly not true– things which should not be sent down into a garbage disposal include things like grease, any kind of 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 become trapped in your sewer line, grabbing onto other items as they go by, to create a clog. Over time, what was a little obstruction turns into a bigger one, resulting in a complete sewer line blockage.
What Happens Next?
When your primary sewer pipe becomes blocked, you will need the services of a professional plumber. Minor clogs can be cleared by simply removing the sink’s P-trap and clearing out the debris. However, removing huge clogs that lie deeper in the drain line is more difficult. These sorts of clogs will require the plumber to use a powered plumbing snake to reach and bore through the blockage.
Contamination is a very legitimate hazard and can result from sewage leaks. If wastewater leaks into your office or home the room must be sanitized and decontaminated to prevent development of dangerous microorganisms that can cause tentanus, Hepatitus A and Giardia. Over time, sewer water damage can trigger very severe health conditions especially in the elderly, kids and those who struggle with persistent respiratory complications.
Quickly finding the cause of the blockage and leak in your drain and sewer pipes will prevent harm to your family’s health and your home.
