What triggers a clogged drain?
A clogged drain is usually a result of the slow accumulation of natural substances like hair and grease on the inside walls of drain pipes. In time, this buildup reduces the normal flow of water through the line, similar to cholesterol in the bloodstream. When a clump of debris or a wad of hair attempts to pass thru the pipe, it can become stuck and completely block the outflow. The end result is a clogged shower or kitchen sink drain.
Even though a plunger can sometimes unblock small obstructions, 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 does. Our plumber will push the snake into the blockage and crank it to drive the snake deeper into the clog.
In some cases, the licensed plumber will use an electric snake, which has enough power to get through stubborn clogs. Snakes are especially handy because they’re long enough to get to clogs that are stuck deep within a drain pipe 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 (also called the secondary drains). Rather, the clog is the result of foreign obstructions such as roots inside the sewer main . If our plumber discovers that the clog is caused by an obstruction in the main sewer drain, it may signal that we hydrojet the main line. While we do try very hard to provide up-front, transparent quotes, custom jobs such as these will require us to give you a quotation for the work.
Some Typical Sewer Main Blockage Causes in Prospect Park
A sewer line blockage is the direct result of an object being flushed down the toilet or washed down the drain. Oftentimes, the object is a toy or toothpaste tube or any number of things that may unintentionally drop into the toilet. The object may clear the toilet but can become caught or snagged within thesewer line.
Another problem area is the kitchen sink, particularly sinks with waste disposals. People often assume it is all right to put all of the kitchen garbage down the disposal. This isnot true– things which should never be placed into a garbage disposal include grease, any kind of oil and bones. All the aforementioned things can harm or stop up your house’s drain pipes. It simply takes a small shard of bone to become trapped in your sewer pipes, grabbing onto other things as they pass by, to develop a clog. Over time, what was a small blockage grows into a larger one, causing a complete sewer line obstruction.
Is There Hope for My Pipes?
When your primary sewer pipe becomes blocked, you will need the services of a professional plumber. Minor obstructions can be gotten rid of by simply removing the sink’s P-trap and clearing out the debris. However, removing large blockages that are located further in the drain system is a lot more difficult. These types of blockages will require the plumber to use a powered plumbing snake to reach and bore through the blockage.
Contamination is a very legitimate hazard and can cause by sewage leaks. If waste water leaks into your office or home the space must be sanitized and decontaminated to stop development of harmful bacteria 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 suffer from chronic respiratory complications.
Quickly finding the root cause of the blockage and leak in your drain and sewer pipes will prevent harm to your family’s health and to your home.
