What causes a stopped up drain?
A stopped up drain is typically a result of the gradual build-up of organic substances like hair and grease on the inside walls of drain lines. Over time, this buildup reduces the regular flow of water thru the line, similar to cholesterol in the bloodstream. When a clump of debris or a bunch of hair tries to pass thru the pipe, it can become caught and totally obstruct the flow. The end result is a stopped up shower or kitchen sink drain.
How do I unclog my drain?
While a plunger can sometimes unblock small blockages, a tough or constant clog will call for a visit with one of our licensed plumbers who will use a tool called an auger (also called a “snake”). This indispensable tool works in a different way than a plunger works. Our plumber will thread 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 enough power to get through tough clogs. Snakes are especially handy because they’re long enough to reach clogs that are lodged deep within a drainpipe and ultimately unclog the drain.
Are there any exceptions? Sometimes a clogged sink, tub, shower or even toilet isn’t caused by refuse in your home’s pipes (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 main sewer drain, it may signal that we hydrojet the main line. While we try very hard to give you up front, transparent quotes, custom jobs such as these will necessitate that we give you an estimate for the work.
Some Typical Sewer Main Blockage Causes in Netcong
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 accidentally drop 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 waste disposals. People often assume it is OK to put all kitchen garbage down the garbage disposal. This iscertainly not true– items that should never be placed into a garbage disposal include grease, oil and bones. All the previously mentioned items can hurt or clog your house’s drain system. It simply takes a small shard of bone to become trapped in your sewer pipes, snagging other things as they pass by, to develop a blockage. Over time, what was a small blockage turns into a bigger one, causing a complete sewer line blockage.
How Does This Get Fixed?
When your main sewer pipe becomes clogged, you will most likely need the services of a professional plumber. Minor clogs can be gotten rid of by simply removing the sink’s P-trap and clearing out the debris. On the other hand, removing huge blockages that lie further in the drain system is more difficult. These kinds of blockages will require the plumber to employ a power plumbing snake to reach and cut through the clog.
Contamination is a very real hazard and can cause by sewage leaks. If wastewater leaks into your office or home the room must be sanitized and decontaminated to stop growth of dangerous bacteria that can cause tentanus, Hepatitus A and Giardia. Over time, sewer water damages can cause very severe health problems particularly in the elderly, children and those who suffer from chronic respiratory issues.
Quickly finding the cause of the obstructions and leak in your sewer and drain pipes will prevent harm to your family’s health and to your home.
