What triggers a stopped up drain?
A stopped up drain is usually caused by the slow accumulation of organic substances such as hair and grease on the inside walls of drain pipes. In time, this build-up reduces the normal flow of water thru the pipe, much like cholesterol in the blood vessels. When a jumble of debris or a bunch of hair attempts to pass through the pipe, it can become caught and totally block the flow. The end result is a clogged bathtub or sink drain.
Although a plunger can occasionally unblock minor blockages, a stubborn or constant clog will require a visit with one of our qualified plumbers who will bring a tool called an auger (also called a “snake”). This tool works in a different way than a plunger does. Our plumber will push the snake into the clog and use the crank to send the snake deeper into the clog.
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’re 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 is not caused by debris in your home’s pipes (also called the secondary drains). Rather, the clog is the result of invading obstructions like roots inside the sewer main . If our plumber determines that the clog is caused by an obstruction in the main sewer drain, it may require that we hydrojet the main line. While we do try very hard to provide up front, transparent pricing, custom jobs like these will necessitate that we give you a quotation for the work.
Some Typical Sewer Main Blockage Causes in Teaneck
A sewer line clog is the direct outcome of an object being flushed down the toilet or washed down the drain. Oftentimes, the item is a toy or toothpaste tube or any number of things that may accidentally fall into the toilet. The object may clear the toilet but can become caught or snagged within thesewer line.
Another problem area is the kitchen sink, especially 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 that should not be placed into a garbage disposal include grease, any kind of oil and bones. All the aforementioned items can harm or clog your house’s drain pipes. It just takes a small shard of bone to get trapped in your sewer pipes, grabbing onto other things as they pass by, to create a clog. Over time, what was a little obstruction turns into a larger one, causing a total sewer line blockage.
Is There Hope for My Pipes?
When your main sewer pipe becomes clogged, you will need the service of a professional plumber. Minor clogs can be gotten rid of by merely removing the sink’s P-trap and clearing out the debris. On the other hand, removing large blockages that lie deeper in the drain system is more complicated. These types of clogs will require the plumber to employ a power plumbing snake to get to and cut through the blockage.
Contamination is a very real hazard and can cause by sewage leaks. If waste water leaks into your home or office the space must be sanitized and decontaminated to prevent growth of dangerous microorganisms that can cause tentanus, Hepatitus A and Giardia. Over time, sewer water damage can trigger very serious health problems especially in the aged, kids and those who suffer from persistent breathing complications.
Quickly discovering the root cause of the obstructions and leak in your drain and sewer pipes will prevent harm to your family’s health and to your home.
