What causes a stopped up drain?
A clogged up drain is usually a result of the slow build-up of natural matter such as hair and grease on the inside walls of drain pipes. In time, this buildup slows down the regular flow of water through the pipe, similar to cholesterol in the blood vessels. When a clump of debris or a bunch of hair tries to pass through the pipe, it can become caught and totally obstruct the flow. The result is a clogged shower or sink drain.
How do I unclog my drain?
While a plunger can sometimes unblock minor obstructions, 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 tool works in the opposite way than a plunger does. Our plumber will push the snake into the blockage and use the crank to drive the snake deeper into the obstruction.
In other cases, the will use an electric snake, which has the power necessary to penetrate stubborn clogs. Snakes are especially handy because they are long enough to reach obstructions that are lodged deep within a drain pipe and finally 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). Instead, the clog is the result of invading obstructions such as 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 require us to give you an estimate for the work.
Some Typical Sewer Main Blockage Causes in Verona
A sewer line clog is the direct outcome of an item 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 unintentionally fall into the toilet. The item may clear the toilet yet can become trapped or snagged within thesewer line.
Another area of concern is the kitchen sink, particularly sinks with garbage disposals. People often assume it is OK to put all of the kitchen waste down the disposal. This iscertainly not true– things which should never be placed into a garbage disposal include grease, any kind of oil and bones. All the previously mentioned items can damage or clog your home’s drain pipes. It just takes a small bit of bone to become trapped in your sewer pipes, grabbing onto other items as they pass by, to create a clog. In time, what was a small blockage turns into a bigger one, causing a total sewer line obstruction.
How Does This Get Fixed?
When your main sewer pipe 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. On the other hand, removing huge clogs that are located further in the drain line is a lot more difficult. These kinds of obstructions will require the plumber to use a power plumbing snake to reach and bore through the clog.
Contamination is a very real hazard and can result from sewage leaks. If waste water leaks into your home or office the space must be sanitized and decontaminated to prevent development of dangerous bacteria that can cause tentanus, Hepatitus A and Giardia. In time, sewer water damage can cause very severe health conditions especially in the elderly, children and people who struggle with chronic breathing complications.
Quickly finding the cause of the obstructions and leak in your sewer and drain pipes will prevent potential harm to your family’s health and to your home.
