What triggers a clogged drain?
A clogged drain is generally caused by the slow build-up of organic matter such as hair and grease on the inner walls of drain lines. In time, this build-up reduces the regular flow of water thru the line, similar to cholesterol in the bloodstream. When a jumble of debris or a wad of hair tries to pass through the pipe, it can become caught and totally obstruct the flow. The result is a stopped up shower or kitchen sink drain.
How do I unclog my drain?
Even though a plunger can sometimes unblock minor blockages, a stubborn or constant clog will require a visit with one of our licensed plumbers who will bring a tool called an auger (also called a “snake”). This indispensable tool works in a different way than a plunger works. Our plumber will thread the snake into the clog and crank it to drive the snake deeper into the clog.
In some cases, the will use an electric snake, which has enough power to get through stubborn clogs. Snakes are especially handy because they are long enough to get to clogs that are lodged deep within a drain pipe and finally unclog the drain.
Are there any exceptions? Sometimes a clogged sink, tub, shower or even toilet isn’t caused by refuse in your home’s pipes (called the secondary drains). Rather, the clog is the result of foreign obstructions such as tree roots inside the sewer main . 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 require us to give you an estimate for the work.
Some Common Sewer Main Blockage Causes in Pompton Lakes
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 drop into the toilet. The object may clear the toilet but can become trapped or snagged within thesewer line.
Another area of concern is the kitchen sink, particularly sinks with waste disposals. People often think it is OK to put all kitchen garbage down the disposal. This iscertainly not true– products which should not be placed into a garbage disposal include things like grease, any kind of oil and bones. All the previously mentioned items can damage or stop up your house’s drain system. It just takes a small shard of bone to become trapped in your sewer pipes, grabbing onto other things as they pass by, to create a clog. In time, what was a little obstruction grows into a larger one, resulting in a total sewer line obstruction.
Is There Hope for My Pipes?
When your main sewer line becomes clogged, you will need the services of an experienced plumber. Minor obstructions can be gotten rid of by simply removing the sink’s P-trap and flushing out the debris. However, removing huge blockages that are located further in the drain line is a lot more complicated. These sorts of obstructions will require the plumber to use a powered plumbing snake to reach and bore through the clog.
Contamination is a very real hazard and can result from sewage leaks. If waste water leaks into your home or office 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 conditions especially in the aged, kids and those who suffer from persistent respiratory issues.
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 to your home.
