Few situations are really as stressful as a sudden water leak in your home’s water or sewer pipes.

What triggers a blocked drain?

A clogged drain is usually caused by the gradual build-up of organic substances like hair and grease on the inside walls of drain pipes. In time, this build-up slows down the normal flow of water thru the line, much like cholesterol in the blood vessels. When a jumble of debris or a bunch of hair tries to pass through the pipe, it can become stuck and totally obstruct the flow. The end result is a clogged shower or sink drain.

How do I unclog my drain?

Even though a plunger can occasionally unclog small obstructions, a stubborn or persistent blockage 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 push the snake into the clog and use the crank to send the snake deeper into the clog.

In other cases, the licensed plumber will use an electric snake, which has enough power to penetrate tough clogs. Snakes are very handy because they’re long enough to reach obstructions that are lodged deep within a drain pipe and ultimately unclog the drain.

Are there any exceptions? Frequently a clogged sink, tub, shower or even toilet is not caused by debris in your home’s pipes (also 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 determines that the clog is caused by an obstruction in the sewer main, it may require that we hydrojet the main line. While we do try very hard to provide up front, transparent pricing, custom jobs like these will necessitate that we give you an estimate for the work.

Some Typical Sewer Main Blockage Causes in North Haledon

A sewer line clog is the direct result of an object being flushed down the toilet or washed down the drain. Oftentimes, the object is a toy or toothpaste tube or any variety of things that may unintentionally drop into the toilet. The object may clear the toilet yet can become caught or snagged within thesewer line.

Another problem area is the kitchen sink, especially sinks with waste disposals.Homeowners often assume it is all right to put all kitchen garbage down the garbage disposal. This isnot true– products which should not be placed into a garbage disposal include grease, oil and bones. All the previously mentioned items can hurt or clog your home’s drain pipes. It just takes a small bit of bone to get trapped in your sewer pipes, grabbing onto other things as they go by, to create a clog. In time, what was a small blockage turns into a bigger one, causing a total sewer line obstruction.

What Happens Next?

When your main sewer line becomes clogged, you will most likely need the service of an experienced plumber. Minor blockages can be gotten rid of by merely removing the sink’s P-trap and flushing out the debris. On the other hand, removing huge blockages that are located further in the drain line is a lot more complicated. These kinds of obstructions will call for the plumber to employ a power plumbing snake to reach and cut through the clog.

Sewage Hazards

Contagion is a very real hazard and can result from 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 conditions particularly in the elderly, kids and people who struggle with persistent breathing issues.

Quickly finding the cause of the blockage and leak in your sewer and drain pipes will prevent harm to your family’s health and to your home.
