What triggers a stopped up drain?
A clogged drain is typically a result of the slow accumulation of organic substances such as hair and grease on the inside walls of drain pipes. Over time, this build-up slows down the normal flow of water thru the pipe, much like cholesterol in the blood vessels. When a clump of debris or a bunch of hair tries to pass through the pipe, it can get stuck and completely obstruct the outflow. The end result is a stopped up tub or sink drain.
How do you unclog a drain?
While a plunger can sometimes unclog minor blockages, a tough or constant blockage will call for a visit with one of our licensed 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 use the crank to drive the snake deeper into the obstruction.
In other cases, the will use an electric snake, which has enough power to penetrate tough clogs. Snakes are very good to have around because they are long enough to reach clogs that are stuck deep within a drainpipe 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 (called the secondary drains). Instead, the clog is the result of invading obstructions such as roots inside the sewer main drain pipe. If our plumber determines that the clog is caused by this kind of obstruction in the main sewer drain, it may signal 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 an estimate for the work.
Some Typical Sewer Main Blockage Causes in Saddle River
A sewer line blockage is the direct result of an object being flushed down the toilet or washed down the drain. Often, the object is a toy or toothpaste tube or any variety of things that may accidentally drop into the toilet. The item may clear the toilet yet can become caught or snagged within thesewer pipe.
Another area of concern is the kitchen sink, particularly sinks with waste disposals.Homeowners often think it is OK to put all of the kitchen garbage down the garbage disposal. This iscertainly not true– things which should never be sent down into a garbage disposal include grease, oil and bones. All the previously mentioned things can hurt or clog your house’s drain pipes. It just takes a small bit of bone to get trapped in your sewer pipes, snagging other things as they go by, to develop a clog. Over time, what was a little blockage grows into a bigger one, resulting in a total sewer line obstruction.
What Happens Next?
When your main sewer pipe becomes blocked, you will need the services of an experienced 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 large blockages that lie further in the drain system is a lot more difficult. These sorts of blockages will require the plumber to employ a power plumbing snake to reach and cut through the blockage.
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 disinfected to stop growth of harmful bacteria that can cause tentanus, Hepatitus A and Giardia. In time, sewer water damage can cause very severe health conditions particularly in the elderly, kids and people who struggle with persistent respiratory issues.
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 your home.
