Few scenarios are quite as stressful as a sudden water leak in your home’s water or sewer pipes.

What causes a blocked drain?
A stopped up drain is generally a result of the slow build-up of natural substances such as 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 through the pipe, it can get stuck and totally obstruct the outflow. The result is a stopped up shower or kitchen sink drain.
How do you unclog a drain?
While a plunger can occasionally unclog small obstructions, a stubborn or persistent blockage will require a visit from one of our qualified plumbers who will use a tool called an auger (also called a “snake”). This tool works in the opposite way than a plunger works. 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 the power necessary to get through stubborn clogs. Snakes are especially good to have around because they are long enough to get to obstructions that are stuck deep within a drainpipe and finally unclog the drain.
Are there any exceptions? Frequently 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 like roots in 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 try very hard to give you up front, transparent pricing, custom jobs such as these will necessitate that we give you a quotation for the work.
Some Typical Sewer Main Blockage Causes in Randolph
A sewer line clog 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 accidentally drop into the toilet. The item may clear the toilet yet can become caught or snagged within thesewer line.
Another area of concern is the kitchen sink, particularly sinks with garbage disposals.Homeowners often think it is all right to put all kitchen garbage down the garbage disposal. This iscertainly not true– products that should not be sent down into a garbage disposal include things like grease, oil and bones. All the previously mentioned items can harm or stop up your home’s drain system. It just takes a small bit of bone to get trapped in your sewer line, snagging other items as they go by, to develop a clog. Over time, what was a little blockage grows into a larger one, causing a total sewer line obstruction.
How Does This Get Fixed?
When your main sewer line becomes clogged, you will most likely need the service of an experienced plumber. Minor blockages can be gotten rid of by simply removing the sink’s P-trap and clearing out the debris. However, removing large blockages that lie deeper in the drain line is more difficult. These kinds of blockages will require the plumber to use a power plumbing snake to get to and cut through the clog.
Contamination is a very real hazard and can cause by sewage leaks. If wastewater leaks into your office or home the room must be sanitized and disinfected 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 particularly in the elderly, kids and those who struggle with persistent respiratory complications.
Quickly discovering 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.
