What triggers a clogged drain?
A stopped up drain is generally a result of the slow accumulation of natural matter such as hair and grease on the inside walls of drain lines. In time, this buildup slows down the normal flow of water thru the line, much like cholesterol in the blood vessels. When a clump of debris or a wad of hair attempts to pass thru the pipe, it can become stuck and completely block the flow. The end result is a clogged bathtub or sink drain.
While a plunger can sometimes unblock small obstructions, a stubborn or persistent blockage will require a visit from one of our licensed plumbers who will bring a tool called an auger (also known as a “snake”). This tool works in a different way than a plunger does. Our plumber will push the snake into the clog and crank it to drive the snake deeper into the obstruction.
In other cases, the licensed plumber will use an electric snake, which has the power necessary to penetrate tough clogs. Snakes are especially good to have around because they are long enough to reach obstructions that are stuck deep inside a drainpipe and finally unclog the drain.
Are there any exceptions? Frequently a clogged sink, tub, shower or even toilet is not caused by debris in your home’s pipes (also called the secondary drains). Rather, the clog is the result of foreign obstructions such as roots inside 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 do try very hard to provide up-front, transparent quotes, custom jobs such as these will necessitate that we give you an estimate for the work.
Some Typical Sewer Main Clog Causes in South Orange
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 number of things that may unintentionally fall into the toilet. The object may clear the toilet yet can become caught or snagged within thesewer line.
Another area of concern is the kitchen sink, especially sinks with garbage disposals.Homeowners often assume it is all right to put all of the kitchen waste down the garbage disposal. This isnot true– products which should never be placed into a garbage disposal include things like grease, oil and bones. All the aforementioned items can harm or stop up your house’s drain pipes. It simply takes a small shard of bone to become trapped in your sewer pipes, snagging other items as they pass by, to develop a clog. Over time, what was a little blockage turns into a bigger one, causing a complete sewer line obstruction.
How Does This Get Fixed?
When your primary sewer line becomes blocked, you will need the service of a professional 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 complicated. These types of obstructions will require the plumber to employ a power plumbing snake to get to and bore through the blockage.
Contamination is a very legitimate hazard and can result from sewage leaks. If waste water leaks into your home or office the room must be sanitized and disinfected to stop development of dangerous microorganisms that can cause tentanus, Hepatitus A and Giardia. Over time, sewer water damage can trigger very serious health problems particularly in the aged, children and those who suffer from chronic breathing complications.
Quickly finding 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.
