What triggers a blocked drain?
A clogged up drain is usually caused by the slow build-up of organic substances such as hair and grease on the inner walls of drain pipes. Over time, this build-up reduces the normal flow of water through the pipe, similar to cholesterol in the bloodstream. When a clump of debris or a bunch of hair attempts to pass thru the pipe, it can become stuck and totally obstruct the outflow. The result is a stopped up tub or sink drain.
How do I unclog my drain?
Although a plunger can sometimes unblock small blockages, a tough or persistent clog will call for a visit from one of our qualified plumbers who will use a tool called an auger (also called a “snake”). This indispensable tool works in the opposite way than a plunger works. Our plumber will push the snake into the blockage and use the crank to send the snake deeper into the obstruction.
In other cases, the licensed plumber will use an electric snake, which has enough power to get through tough clogs. Snakes are very handy because they are long enough to get to obstructions 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 debris in your home’s pipes (also called the secondary drains). Instead, the clog is the result of foreign obstructions like tree roots inside the sewer main drain pipe. If our plumber discovers that the clog is caused by this kind of 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 such as these will require us to give you an estimate for the work.
Some Typical Sewer Main Clog Causes in Ridgefield Park
A sewer line blockage is the direct outcome of an object being flushed down the toilet or washed down the drain. Often, the item is a toy or toothpaste tube or any number of things that may unintentionally fall into the toilet. The object may clear the toilet but can become trapped or snagged within thesewer pipe.
Another problem area is the kitchen sink, particularly sinks with waste disposals.Homeowners often think it is all right to put all of the kitchen waste down the garbage disposal. This iscertainly not true– products which should not be placed into a garbage disposal include things like grease, oil and bones. All the previously mentioned things can hurt or clog your house’s drain pipes. It only takes a small shard of bone to get trapped in your sewer line, grabbing onto other things as they go by, to create a clog. In time, what was a little obstruction turns into a larger one, causing a total sewer line obstruction.
What Happens Next?
When your main sewer line becomes blocked, you will need the services of an experienced plumber. Minor blockages can be gotten rid of by merely removing the sink’s P-trap and flushing out the debris. However, removing large blockages that are located deeper in the drain system is a lot more difficult. These sorts of clogs will require the plumber to use a powered plumbing snake to reach and bore through the clog.
Contagion is a very legitimate hazard and can cause by sewage leaks. If waste water leaks into your home or office the room must be sanitized and decontaminated to stop growth of harmful bacteria that can cause tentanus, Hepatitus A and Giardia. Over time, sewer water damage can trigger very serious health conditions especially in the aged, kids and those who struggle with persistent respiratory complications.
Quickly discovering the cause of the blockage and leak in your drain and sewer pipes will prevent harm to your family’s health and to your home.
