What triggers a blocked drain?
A clogged drain is generally a result of the gradual accumulation of natural substances such as hair and grease on the inside walls of drain pipes. In time, this build-up slows down the regular flow of water thru the pipe, similar to cholesterol in the bloodstream. When a clump of debris or a wad of hair tries to pass through the pipe, it can become caught and completely obstruct the outflow. The end result is a clogged bathtub or kitchen sink drain.
How do I unclog my drain?
Even though a plunger can occasionally unblock small blockages, a tough or persistent clog will require a visit from one of our licensed plumbers who will use a tool called an auger (also called a “snake”). This tool works in the opposite way than a plunger works. Our plumber will thread the snake into the blockage 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 get through tough clogs. Snakes are especially handy because they’re long enough to get to clogs that are stuck deep inside a drain pipe and finally unclog the drain.
Are there any exceptions? Frequently a clogged sink, tub, shower or even toilet isn’t caused by debris in your home’s pipes (called the secondary drains). Instead, the clog is the result of invading obstructions like tree roots in 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 provide up-front, transparent pricing, custom jobs like these will require us to give you an estimate for the work.
Some Typical Sewer Main Clog Causes in North Arlington
A sewer line clog is the direct result 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 caught or snagged within thesewer line.
Another problem area is the kitchen sink, especially sinks with waste disposals. People often assume it is all right to put all kitchen waste down the disposal. This isnot true– products that should not be placed into a garbage disposal include grease, oil and bones. All the previously mentioned things can damage or stop up your home’s drain system. It just takes a small shard of bone to become trapped in your sewer pipes, grabbing onto other things as they go by, to create a clog. Over time, what was a small blockage grows into a larger one, causing a complete sewer line obstruction.
How Does This Get Fixed?
When your primary sewer pipe becomes clogged, you will most likely need the service of an experienced plumber. Minor clogs can be gotten rid of by merely removing the sink’s P-trap and clearing out the debris. On the other hand, removing large clogs that lie further in the drain system is more difficult. These types of blockages will require the plumber to use a powered plumbing snake to get to and cut through the blockage.
Contamination is a very real hazard and can result from sewage leaks. If wastewater leaks into your home or office the space must be sanitized and disinfected to prevent development of dangerous bacteria that can cause tentanus, Hepatitus A and Giardia. In time, sewer water damages can trigger very severe health problems particularly in the elderly, children and those who suffer from persistent breathing issues.
Quickly finding the root cause of the blockage and leak in your drain and sewer pipes will prevent harm to your family’s health and your home.
