What triggers a blocked drain?
A clogged drain is generally a result of the gradual accumulation of natural matter like hair and grease on the inside walls of drain lines. Over time, this build-up reduces the normal flow of water through the line, similar to cholesterol in the blood vessels. When a clump of debris or a bunch of hair attempts to pass through the pipe, it can get caught and completely block the flow. The end result is a clogged shower or sink drain.
How do you unclog a drain?
Even though a plunger can sometimes unblock minor blockages, a tough or persistent blockage will call for a visit from one of our licensed plumbers who will bring a tool called an auger (also known as a “snake”). This indispensable tool works in a different way than a plunger works. Our plumber will thread the snake into the clog and use the crank to send the snake deeper into the clog.
In some cases, the will use an electric snake, which has enough power to penetrate stubborn clogs. Snakes are especially good to have around because they are long enough to get to obstructions that are stuck deep inside a drain pipe and ultimately 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 (called the secondary drains). Instead, the clog is the result of invading obstructions like tree roots in the sewer main drain pipe. If our plumber discovers that the clog is caused by an obstruction in the main sewer drain, it may require that we hydrojet the main line. While we try very hard to provide up-front, transparent pricing, custom jobs such as these will necessitate that we give you a quotation for the work.
Some Common Sewer Main Blockage Causes in Rochelle Park
A sewer line blockage is the direct outcome of an item being flushed down the toilet or washed down the drain. Oftentimes, the object is a toy or toothpaste tube or any variety of things that may accidentally fall into the toilet. The item may clear the toilet yet can become trapped or snagged within thesewer pipe.
Another problem area is the kitchen sink, especially sinks with waste disposals. People often assume it is all right to put all of the kitchen garbage down the disposal. This iscertainly not true– products which should never be sent down into a garbage disposal include things like grease, any kind of oil and bones. All the aforementioned things can hurt or clog your home’s drain pipes. It only takes a small shard of bone to become trapped in your sewer pipes, snagging other items as they pass by, to create a clog. Over time, what was a little blockage grows into a bigger one, causing a total sewer line obstruction.
What Happens Next?
When your primary sewer pipe becomes blocked, you will most likely need the service of a professional plumber. Minor obstructions can be gotten rid of by simply removing the sink’s P-trap and clearing out the debris. On the other hand, removing huge clogs that lie further in the drain line is a lot more difficult. These kinds of blockages will call for the plumber to employ a powered plumbing snake to get to and bore through the clog.
Contagion is a very real hazard and can cause by sewage leaks. If wastewater leaks into your home or office the space must be sanitized and disinfected to prevent development of dangerous bacteria that can cause tentanus, Hepatitus A and Giardia. Over time, sewer water damage can cause very serious health problems particularly in the elderly, kids and those who struggle with persistent respiratory complications.
Quickly discovering the cause of the obstructions and leak in your sewer and drain pipes will prevent harm to your family’s health and your home.
