What triggers a stopped up drain?
A clogged drain is typically caused by the slow build-up of natural matter like hair and grease on the inner walls of drain pipes. Over time, this build-up slows down the regular flow of water thru the line, similar to cholesterol in the blood vessels. When a jumble of debris or a bunch of hair attempts to pass through the pipe, it can get caught and totally block the flow. The end result is a clogged bathtub or kitchen sink drain.
How do I unclog my drain?
Although a plunger can occasionally unblock small blockages, a tough or constant blockage will call for a visit with one of our qualified 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 clog and crank it to drive the snake deeper into the clog.
In other cases, the licensed plumber will use an electric snake, which has enough power to penetrate tough clogs. Snakes are very good to have around because they’re long enough to get to clogs that are lodged deep within a drain pipe and finally unclog the drain.
Are there any exceptions? Frequently a clogged sink, tub, shower or even toilet isn’t caused by debris in your home’s pipes (called the secondary drains). Rather, the clog is the result of foreign obstructions like tree roots in the sewer main . If our plumber determines that the clog is caused by an obstruction in the sewer main, it may require that we hydrojet the main line. While we try very hard to provide up front, transparent quotes, custom jobs such as these will necessitate that we give you an estimate for the work.
Some Common Sewer Main Clog Causes in Ramsey
A sewer line clog is the direct outcome of an item being flushed down the toilet or washed down the drain. Often, the item is a toy or toothpaste tube or any variety of things that may accidentally drop into the toilet. The object may clear the toilet yet can become caught or snagged within thesewer line.
Another area of concern is the kitchen sink, particularly sinks with waste disposals. People often assume it is all right to put all of the kitchen waste down the garbage disposal. This iscertainly not true– items which should not be placed into a garbage disposal include things like grease, any kind of oil and bones. All the previously mentioned things can harm or stop up your home’s drain system. It simply takes a small shard of bone to get trapped in your sewer pipes, grabbing onto other things as they go by, to develop a blockage. In time, what was a little blockage grows into a bigger one, causing a total sewer line obstruction.
Is There Hope for My Pipes?
When your main sewer pipe becomes blocked, you will most likely need the service of an experienced plumber. Minor clogs can be cleared by merely 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 more difficult. These sorts of obstructions will call for the plumber to employ a powered plumbing snake to reach and bore through the blockage.
Contamination is a very real hazard and can result from sewage leaks. If wastewater leaks into your home or office the space must be sanitized and decontaminated to prevent development of dangerous microorganisms that can cause tentanus, Hepatitus A and Giardia. In time, sewer water damages can cause very severe health problems especially in the elderly, children and people who struggle with chronic breathing complications.
Quickly discovering the root cause of the blockage and leak in your drain and sewer pipes will prevent potential harm to your family’s health and your home.
