Few scenarios are really as nerve-racking as a sudden water leak in your home’s water or sewer pipes.

What causes a blocked drain?
A clogged up drain is usually caused by the slow accumulation of natural substances like hair and grease on the inner walls of drain lines. In time, this buildup slows down the normal flow of water thru the pipe, much like cholesterol in the bloodstream. When a clump of debris or a bunch of hair attempts to pass through the pipe, it can get stuck and totally obstruct the flow. The result is a clogged bathtub or sink drain.
How do you unclog a drain?
Although a plunger can sometimes unblock minor obstructions, a tough or constant blockage will require a visit from one of our qualified plumbers who will use a tool called an auger (also known as a “snake”). This 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 clog.
In other cases, the licensed plumber will use an electric snake, which has the power necessary to penetrate tough clogs. Snakes are very handy because they are long enough to get to clogs that are stuck deep within a drain pipe 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 roots inside the sewer main . If our plumber discovers 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 give you 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 Palisades Park
A sewer line clog is the direct result of an item 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 fall into the toilet. The item may clear the toilet but can become caught or snagged within thesewer pipe.
Another area of concern is the kitchen sink, especially sinks with waste disposals. People often assume it is OK to put all of the kitchen waste down the garbage disposal. This isnot true– items that should not be sent down into a garbage disposal include things like grease, oil and bones. All the previously mentioned items can hurt or stop up your home’s drain system. It only takes a small bit of bone to get trapped in your sewer pipes, grabbing onto other items as they go by, to develop a clog. In time, what was a little blockage grows into a larger one, resulting in a complete sewer line obstruction.
Is There Hope for My Pipes?
When your main sewer line becomes blocked, you will most likely need the service of a professional plumber. Minor clogs can be cleared by simply removing the sink’s P-trap and flushing out the debris. On the other hand, removing large clogs that are located deeper in the drain system is a lot more difficult. These sorts of clogs will call for the plumber to employ a power plumbing snake to get to and cut through the blockage.
Contamination is a very real hazard and can cause by sewage leaks. If wastewater leaks into your office or home the room must be sanitized and disinfected to stop growth of dangerous bacteria that can cause tentanus, Hepatitus A and Giardia. Over time, sewer water damages can cause very severe health conditions particularly in the aged, children and those who struggle with chronic 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.
