What causes a stopped up drain?
A stopped up drain is usually caused by the gradual build-up of natural matter such as hair and grease on the inner walls of drain lines. In time, this buildup reduces 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 attempts to pass through the pipe, it can become stuck and totally obstruct the outflow. The end result is a stopped up bathtub or sink drain.
Even though a plunger can occasionally unblock small obstructions, a tough or persistent 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 a different way than a plunger works. Our plumber will push the snake into the blockage and crank it to send the snake deeper into the obstruction.
In some 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 get to clogs that are lodged deep inside a drainpipe and finally unclog the drain.
Are there any exceptions? Sometimes a clogged sink, tub, shower or even toilet is not caused by refuse in your home’s pipes (called the secondary drains). Rather, the clog is the result of invading obstructions such as tree roots in the sewer main . If our plumber discovers 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 quotes, custom jobs like these will necessitate that we give you a quotation for the work.
Some Common Sewer Main Blockage Causes in Victory Gardens
A sewer line clog is the direct outcome 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 drop into the toilet. The object may clear the toilet but can become trapped or snagged within thesewer line.
Another problem area is the kitchen sink, especially sinks with garbage disposals. People often assume it is all right to put all kitchen garbage down the garbage disposal. This isnot true– products which should not be placed into a garbage disposal include things like grease, oil and bones. All the previously mentioned items can harm or clog your home’s drain pipes. It only takes a small shard of bone to become trapped in your sewer pipes, snagging other things as they go by, to develop a blockage. In time, what was a little obstruction turns into a larger one, resulting in a total sewer line blockage.
What Happens Next?
When your main sewer line becomes clogged, you will need the services of a professional plumber. Minor clogs can be cleared by simply removing the sink’s P-trap and flushing out the debris. However, removing huge blockages that lie deeper in the drain system is a lot more difficult. These types of obstructions will require the plumber to employ a power plumbing snake to get to and bore through the blockage.
Contagion 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 stop development of harmful microorganisms that can cause tentanus, Hepatitus A and Giardia. Over time, sewer water damage can trigger very severe health problems particularly in the elderly, children and those who suffer from persistent respiratory complications.
Quickly finding the root cause of the blockage and leak in your drain and sewer pipes will prevent potential harm to your family’s health and to your home.
