What causes a stopped up drain?
A clogged up drain is usually caused by the slow accumulation of natural matter such as hair and grease on the inside walls of drain pipes. In time, this build-up slows down the normal flow of water through the pipe, similar to cholesterol in the bloodstream. When a jumble of debris or a wad of hair tries to pass thru the pipe, it can become caught and totally obstruct the outflow. The result is a stopped up bathtub or kitchen sink drain.
While a plunger can sometimes unblock minor obstructions, a stubborn or constant blockage will require a visit with one of our qualified plumbers who will bring a tool called an auger (also known as a “snake”). This indispensable tool works in the opposite way than a plunger does. Our plumber will push 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 very handy because they’re long enough to reach obstructions that are stuck deep inside a drainpipe and ultimately 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 drain pipe. If our plumber discovers that the clog is caused by this kind of obstruction in the sewer main, it may require that we hydrojet the main line. While we try very hard to give you up-front, transparent quotes, custom jobs like these will necessitate that we give you an estimate for the work.
Some Typical Sewer Main Clog Causes in Oradell
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 item may clear the toilet but can become trapped or snagged within thesewer pipe.
Another area of concern is the kitchen sink, particularly sinks with garbage disposals. People often think it is OK to put all of the kitchen garbage down the disposal. This isnot true– products that should not be placed into a garbage disposal include things like grease, oil and bones. All the aforementioned items can harm or stop up your home’s drain pipes. It simply takes a small shard of bone to become trapped in your sewer pipes, grabbing onto other items as they go by, to create a blockage. In time, what was a small blockage turns into a bigger one, causing a total sewer line obstruction.
How Does This Get Fixed?
When your main sewer pipe becomes blocked, you will need the service of a professional plumber. Minor obstructions can be cleared by simply removing the sink’s P-trap and flushing out the debris. However, removing large blockages that are located deeper in the drain line is more complicated. These sorts of clogs will require the plumber to use a powered plumbing snake to get to and bore through the blockage.
Contamination is a very real hazard and can result from sewage leaks. If waste water leaks into your home or office the space must be sanitized and decontaminated to stop development of dangerous microorganisms that can cause tentanus, Hepatitus A and Giardia. Over time, sewer water damages can cause very severe health problems especially in the elderly, kids and those who suffer from chronic breathing complications.
Quickly discovering the root cause of the blockage and leak in your sewer and drain pipes will prevent harm to your family’s health and to your home.
