With a team of fully licensed plumbers and 24/7/365 service availability, your biggest sewer repair emergencies are never too far away from our fast and expert solutions.
What triggers a stopped up drain?
A stopped up drain is usually a result of the slow accumulation of natural matter such as hair and grease on the inside walls of drain lines. In time, this buildup reduces the normal 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 thru the pipe, it can get caught and completely block the outflow. The result is a stopped up shower or kitchen sink drain.
Even though a plunger can occasionally unclog small blockages, a tough or constant blockage will call for a visit from one of our licensed plumbers who will use a tool called an auger (also known as a “snake”). This indispensable tool works in a different way than a plunger works. Our plumber will thread the snake into the clog and use the crank to send the snake deeper into the obstruction.
In some cases, the licensed plumber will use an electric snake, which has the power necessary to get through stubborn clogs. Snakes are especially good to have around because they are long enough to get to clogs that are stuck deep inside a drainpipe and finally unclog the drain.
Are there any exceptions? Sometimes 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 like roots in the sewer main drain pipe. 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 provide up front, transparent pricing, custom jobs like these will necessitate that we give you an estimate for the work.
Some Common Sewer Main Clog Causes in Pequannock
A sewer line clog is the direct outcome 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 accidentally fall into the toilet. The item may clear the toilet yet can become caught or snagged within thesewer line.
Another problem area is the kitchen sink, particularly sinks with garbage disposals. People often think it is all right to put all kitchen garbage down the garbage disposal. This isnot true– products that should never be placed into a garbage disposal include things like grease, oil and bones. All the previously mentioned things can hurt or stop up your home’s drain system. It only takes a small bit of bone to get trapped in your sewer line, grabbing onto other items as they pass by, to develop a clog. In time, what was a small obstruction grows into a bigger one, resulting in a total sewer line blockage.
What Happens Next?
When your primary sewer pipe becomes clogged, you will most likely need the services of a professional plumber. Minor blockages can be cleared by merely removing the sink’s P-trap and clearing out the debris. On the other hand, removing huge blockages that lie further in the drain line is more complicated. These sorts of clogs will require the plumber to employ a power plumbing snake to get to and bore through the blockage.
Contagion is a very real hazard and can cause by sewage leaks. If wastewater leaks into your office or home the space must be sanitized and decontaminated to stop development of harmful microorganisms that can cause tentanus, Hepatitus A and Giardia. Over time, sewer water damages can trigger very severe health problems especially in the aged, kids and people who struggle with persistent breathing complications.
Quickly finding the root cause of the blockage and leak in your sewer and drain pipes will prevent potential harm to your family’s health and your home.
