What triggers a blocked drain?
A stopped up drain is usually caused by the gradual accumulation of natural matter such as hair and grease on the inner walls of drain pipes. Over time, this buildup reduces the regular flow of water through the pipe, much like cholesterol in the blood vessels. When a jumble of debris or a bunch of hair tries to pass thru the pipe, it can get stuck and totally obstruct the outflow. The end result is a stopped up tub or sink drain.
While a plunger can occasionally unblock small blockages, a stubborn or persistent clog 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 the opposite way than a plunger works. Our plumber will thread the snake into the clog and use the crank to drive the snake deeper into the clog.
In some cases, the licensed plumber will use an electric snake, which has the power necessary to penetrate tough clogs. Snakes are especially handy because they’re long enough to get to obstructions that are stuck deep inside a drainpipe and finally 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 such as roots in the sewer main drain pipe. If our plumber determines that the clog is caused by this kind of obstruction in the sewer main, it may signal that we hydrojet the main line. While we do 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 New Milford
A sewer line clog is the direct outcome 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, particularly sinks with waste disposals.Homeowners often assume it is all right to put all of the kitchen waste down the disposal. This isnot true– items which should never be placed into a garbage disposal include things like grease, any kind of oil and bones. All the aforementioned items can hurt or stop up your house’s drain system. It just takes a small bit of bone to get trapped in your sewer pipes, snagging other items as they go by, to create a blockage. In time, what was a little blockage turns into a bigger one, resulting in a total sewer line blockage.
Is There Hope for My Pipes?
When your primary sewer line becomes clogged, you will need the services of an experienced plumber. Minor clogs 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 further in the drain line is more difficult. These kinds of clogs will require the plumber to employ a powered plumbing snake to reach and cut through the clog.
Contamination is a very legitimate hazard and can cause by sewage leaks. If waste water leaks into your office or home the space 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, kids and people who suffer from persistent breathing complications.
Quickly discovering the cause of the obstructions and leak in your drain and sewer pipes will prevent potential harm to your family’s health and to your home.
