What triggers a blocked drain?
A stopped up drain is usually caused by the gradual build-up of organic matter such as hair and grease on the inside walls of drain pipes. In time, this build-up reduces the regular flow of water thru the line, much like cholesterol in the blood vessels. When a clump of debris or a bunch of hair attempts to pass through the pipe, it can become stuck and completely obstruct the flow. The end result is a stopped up tub or kitchen sink drain.
How do I unclog my drain?
While a plunger can sometimes unclog minor obstructions, a tough or constant clog will require a visit with one of our licensed plumbers who will use a tool called an auger (also called a “snake”). This indispensable tool works in the opposite way than a plunger does. Our plumber will push the snake into the blockage and use the crank to drive the snake deeper into the obstruction.
In some cases, the licensed plumber will use an electric snake, which has enough power to get through stubborn clogs. Snakes are very handy because they are long enough to reach obstructions that are lodged deep within a drainpipe and finally unclog the drain.
Are there any exceptions? Frequently a clogged sink, tub, shower or even toilet is not caused by refuse in your home’s pipes (called the secondary drains). Instead, the clog is the result of invading obstructions such as tree roots inside 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 signal that we hydrojet the main line. While we try very hard to give you up front, transparent quotes, custom jobs such as these will necessitate that we give you a quotation for the work.
Some Typical Sewer Main Blockage Causes in Paterson
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 variety of things that may accidentally 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, especially sinks with waste disposals. People often assume it is all right to put all kitchen garbage down the disposal. This isnot true– things that should not be sent down into a garbage disposal include things like grease, oil and bones. All the aforementioned items can hurt or stop up your house’s drain pipes. It only takes a small bit of bone to get trapped in your sewer pipes, grabbing onto other things as they go by, to create a blockage. In time, what was a little obstruction grows into a larger one, resulting in a complete sewer line blockage.
How Does This Get Fixed?
When your primary sewer line becomes blocked, you will most likely need the service of a professional plumber. Minor clogs can be gotten rid of by simply removing the sink’s P-trap and flushing out the debris. However, removing huge blockages that lie further in the drain line is more difficult. These types of clogs will require the plumber to use a power plumbing snake to reach and cut through the clog.
Contamination is a very legitimate hazard and can result from sewage leaks. If wastewater leaks into your home or office the space must be sanitized and disinfected to prevent growth of harmful microorganisms that can cause tentanus, Hepatitus A and Giardia. In time, sewer water damages can trigger very serious health problems especially in the elderly, children and those who suffer from chronic respiratory complications.
Quickly finding the 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.
