What causes a blocked drain?
A clogged drain is generally a result of the gradual accumulation of natural matter like hair and grease on the inner walls of drain pipes. In time, this build-up reduces the regular flow of water thru the pipe, much like cholesterol in the bloodstream. When a jumble of debris or a wad of hair attempts to pass thru the pipe, it can become caught and completely obstruct the outflow. The end result is a stopped up tub or sink drain.
Although a plunger can occasionally unclog minor blockages, a stubborn or persistent clog will require a visit from one of our qualified plumbers who will bring 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 blockage and crank it to send the snake deeper into the obstruction.
In other cases, the will use an electric snake, which has enough power to get through tough clogs. Snakes are especially good to have around because they are long enough to reach obstructions that are lodged deep within 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 (also called the secondary drains). Instead, the clog is the result of invading 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 signal that we hydrojet the main line. While we do try very hard to provide up front, transparent quotes, custom jobs like these will require us to give you an estimate for the work.
Some Typical Sewer Main Blockage Causes in Orange
A sewer line blockage is the direct result of an item being flushed down the toilet or washed down the drain. Often, the object is a toy or toothpaste tube or any number of things that may unintentionally drop into the toilet. The item may clear the toilet yet can become trapped or snagged within thesewer line.
Another problem area is the kitchen sink, particularly sinks with waste disposals. People often think it is all right to put all kitchen waste down the disposal. This isnot true– items that should never be placed into a garbage disposal include grease, oil and bones. All the aforementioned things can harm 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 things as they pass by, to create a blockage. In time, what was a little obstruction grows into a bigger one, causing a total sewer line obstruction.
What Happens Next?
When your primary sewer line becomes clogged, you will most likely need the services of a professional plumber. Minor blockages can be cleared by simply removing the sink’s P-trap and clearing out the debris. However, removing large clogs that lie further in the drain line is more complicated. These sorts of obstructions will require the plumber to employ a power plumbing snake to get to and bore through the clog.
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 decontaminated to stop growth of dangerous bacteria that can cause tentanus, Hepatitus A and Giardia. In time, sewer water damage can cause very severe health problems particularly in the elderly, kids and those who suffer from persistent respiratory complications.
Quickly discovering the root cause of the blockage and leak in your drain and sewer pipes will prevent potential harm to your family’s health and to your home.
