What causes a stopped up drain?
A clogged up drain is typically a result of the gradual build-up of organic matter like hair and grease on the inner walls of drain pipes. Over time, this buildup slows down the normal flow of water thru the line, similar to cholesterol in the bloodstream. When a clump of debris or a bunch of hair attempts to pass through the pipe, it can become caught and totally block the outflow. The end result is a clogged shower or kitchen sink drain.
How do I unclog my drain?
While a plunger can occasionally unblock minor blockages, a stubborn or constant blockage will require a visit with one of our qualified plumbers who will bring a tool called an auger (also called a “snake”). This indispensable tool works in a different way than a plunger does. Our plumber will push the snake into the clog and crank it to send the snake deeper into the obstruction.
In some cases, the licensed plumber will use an electric snake, which has the power necessary to penetrate tough clogs. Snakes are very good to have around because they are long enough to get to clogs that are stuck deep within a drain pipe and ultimately unclog the drain.
Are there any exceptions? Sometimes a clogged sink, tub, shower or even toilet isn’t caused by refuse in your home’s pipes (also called the secondary drains). Instead, the clog is the result of invading obstructions such as tree roots inside the sewer main . If our plumber determines that the clog is caused by this kind of obstruction in the main sewer drain, it may require that we hydrojet the main line. While we do try very hard to give you up-front, transparent quotes, custom jobs like these will require us to give you a quotation for the work.
Some Typical Sewer Main Blockage Causes in Roxbury
A sewer line blockage is the direct result of an item 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 fall into the toilet. The object may clear the toilet yet can become trapped or snagged within thesewer line.
Another problem area is the kitchen sink, particularly sinks with waste disposals. People often assume it is OK to put all kitchen waste down the 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 pipes. It simply takes a small bit of bone to become trapped in your sewer pipes, grabbing onto other things as they pass by, to develop a blockage. Over time, what was a small blockage grows into a bigger one, resulting in a complete sewer line blockage.
Is There Hope for My Pipes?
When your main sewer pipe becomes blocked, you will need the services of an experienced plumber. Minor clogs can be gotten rid of by merely removing the sink’s P-trap and flushing out the debris. On the other hand, removing large clogs that are located deeper in the drain system is a lot more complicated. These kinds of obstructions will call for the plumber to use a powered plumbing snake to get to and cut through the blockage.
Contagion is a very legitimate hazard and can cause by sewage leaks. If wastewater leaks into your office or home the room must be sanitized and decontaminated to stop growth of dangerous bacteria that can cause tentanus, Hepatitus A and Giardia. In time, sewer water damages can trigger very serious health problems especially in the aged, kids and people who struggle with chronic respiratory issues.
Quickly discovering the cause of the blockage and leak in your sewer and drain pipes will prevent potential harm to your family’s health and to your home.
