What triggers a blocked drain?
A clogged up drain is usually a result of the gradual build-up of natural substances like hair and grease on the inner walls of drain pipes. In time, this buildup slows down the normal flow of water thru the line, much like cholesterol in the bloodstream. When a jumble of debris or a bunch of hair attempts to pass through the pipe, it can get stuck and totally block the flow. The end result is a stopped up bathtub or kitchen sink drain.
How do you unclog a drain?
While a plunger can occasionally unblock small obstructions, a stubborn or persistent blockage will require a visit from one of our qualified plumbers who will use a tool called an auger (also known as a “snake”). This indispensable tool works in a different way than a plunger works. Our plumber will push the snake into the clog and use the crank to send the snake deeper into the obstruction.
In other cases, the will use an electric snake, which has the power necessary to penetrate tough clogs. Snakes are especially handy because they are long enough to reach clogs that are stuck deep within a drainpipe and finally unclog the drain.
Are there any exceptions? Sometimes 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 like roots inside the sewer main . If our plumber determines that the clog is caused by an obstruction in the sewer main, 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 an estimate for the work.
Some Common Sewer Main Clog Causes in Mountain Lake
A sewer line clog 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 variety of things that may unintentionally fall into the toilet. The item may clear the toilet but can become trapped or snagged within thesewer line.
Another area of concern is the kitchen sink, especially sinks with garbage disposals.Homeowners often think it is all right to put all of the kitchen garbage down the garbage disposal. This iscertainly not true– things which should never 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 only takes a small bit of bone to get trapped in your sewer pipes, grabbing onto other items as they go by, to develop a blockage. Over time, what was a small obstruction turns into a larger one, resulting in a total sewer line obstruction.
What Happens Next?
When your main sewer pipe becomes clogged, you will most likely need the service of a professional plumber. Minor obstructions can be gotten rid of by simply removing the sink’s P-trap and clearing out the debris. However, removing large clogs that are located deeper in the drain line is a lot more difficult. These types of clogs will require the plumber to employ a powered plumbing snake to get to and cut through the clog.
Contamination is a very legitimate hazard and can result from sewage leaks. If wastewater leaks into your home or office the room must be sanitized and disinfected to prevent growth of harmful bacteria that can cause tentanus, Hepatitus A and Giardia. In time, sewer water damages can cause very severe health conditions especially in the aged, kids and those who struggle with persistent breathing complications.
Quickly discovering the cause of the blockage and leak in your drain and sewer pipes will prevent potential harm to your family’s health and your home.
