Sewer Repair – Drain Cleaning
Few situations are quite as stressful as a sudden water leak in your home’s water or sewer pipes.

With a team of fully licensed plumbers and 24/7/365 service schedule, your biggest sewer repair situations are never too far from our fast and professional solutions.
What triggers a blocked drain?
A clogged drain is typically caused by the slow accumulation of organic matter like hair and grease on the inside walls of drain lines. Over time, this buildup slows down the normal flow of water through the pipe, similar to cholesterol in the bloodstream. When a jumble of debris or a bunch of hair attempts to pass thru the pipe, it can become caught and totally obstruct the outflow. The result is a stopped up tub or kitchen sink drain.
How do I unclog my drain?
Even though a plunger can occasionally unclog small obstructions, a stubborn or persistent blockage will require a visit from one of our licensed plumbers who will use a tool called an auger (also known as a “snake”). This tool works in a different way than a plunger works. Our plumber will thread the snake into the clog and crank it to drive the snake deeper into the obstruction.
In other cases, the licensed plumber will use an electric snake, which has enough power to get through stubborn clogs. Snakes are especially handy because they are long enough to get to obstructions that are lodged deep inside 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 (also called the secondary drains). Instead, the clog is the result of foreign obstructions such as 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 such as these will require us to give you a quotation for the work.
Some Typical Sewer Main Clog Causes in Nutley
A sewer line blockage is the direct outcome 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 accidentally drop into the toilet. The item may clear the toilet yet can become trapped or snagged within thesewer pipe.
Another area of concern is the kitchen sink, especially sinks with waste disposals.Homeowners often think it is all right to put all kitchen garbage down the disposal. This iscertainly not true– things which should never be sent down into a garbage disposal include grease, any kind of oil and bones. All the aforementioned things can hurt or stop up your home’s drain pipes. It just takes a small shard of bone to get trapped in your sewer line, grabbing onto other things as they pass by, to create a blockage. In time, what was a small blockage turns into a bigger one, causing a complete sewer line obstruction.
What Happens Next?
When your main sewer line becomes clogged, you will most likely need the services of a professional plumber. Minor obstructions can be gotten rid of by simply removing the sink’s P-trap and flushing out the debris. However, removing large blockages that lie further in the drain line is more complicated. These kinds of obstructions will call for the plumber to use a power plumbing snake to get to and cut through the clog.
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 decontaminated to stop growth of harmful bacteria that can cause tentanus, Hepatitus A and Giardia. In time, sewer water damages can cause very severe health problems particularly in the aged, children and people who struggle with chronic respiratory complications.
Quickly finding the cause of the obstructions and leak in your drain and sewer pipes will prevent harm to your family’s health and your home.
