What triggers a clogged drain?
A stopped up drain is generally caused by the gradual accumulation of natural matter like hair and grease on the inside walls of drain lines. Over time, this buildup reduces the normal flow of water through the pipe, much like cholesterol in the blood vessels. When a clump of debris or a wad of hair tries to pass through the pipe, it can become caught and totally obstruct the outflow. The result is a clogged tub or sink drain.
How do I unclog my drain?
While a plunger can occasionally unblock small blockages, a stubborn or constant blockage will require a visit from one of our licensed plumbers who will bring a tool called an auger (also known as a “snake”). This tool works in the opposite way than a plunger works. Our plumber will push the snake into the blockage and crank it to drive the snake deeper into the obstruction.
In other cases, the licensed plumber will use an electric snake, which has the power necessary to penetrate stubborn clogs. Snakes are especially handy because they are long enough to get to clogs that are lodged deep within a drain pipe and ultimately unclog the drain.
Are there any exceptions? Sometimes a clogged sink, tub, shower or even toilet isn’t caused by debris in your home’s pipes (also called the secondary drains). Rather, the clog is the result of foreign obstructions such as tree roots in the sewer main . If our plumber determines that the clog is caused by this kind of 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 necessitate that we give you an estimate for the work.
Some Common Sewer Main Blockage Causes in Paramus
A sewer line clog is the direct outcome of an item being flushed down the toilet or washed down the drain. Oftentimes, the item is a toy or toothpaste tube or any number of things that may unintentionally drop into the toilet. The item may clear the toilet but can become caught or snagged within thesewer pipe.
Another problem area is the kitchen sink, especially sinks with waste disposals.Homeowners often assume it is all right to put all of the kitchen garbage down the disposal. This iscertainly not true– items which should never be sent down into a garbage disposal include things like grease, any kind of oil and bones. All the aforementioned things can hurt or stop up your home’s drain system. It just takes a small bit of bone to get trapped in your sewer line, grabbing onto other items as they pass by, to develop a blockage. In time, what was a small obstruction turns into a larger one, causing a total sewer line blockage.
What Happens Next?
When your main sewer pipe becomes blocked, you will need the services of an experienced plumber. Minor blockages can be cleared by simply removing the sink’s P-trap and clearing out the debris. On the other hand, removing large clogs that lie deeper in the drain system is a lot more difficult. These sorts of clogs will require the plumber to use a powered 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 office or home the room must be sanitized and disinfected to stop growth of harmful bacteria that can cause tentanus, Hepatitus A and Giardia. Over time, sewer water damage can cause very serious health conditions especially in the elderly, children and people who suffer from persistent respiratory 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 your home.
