What triggers a blocked drain?
A stopped up drain is generally a result of the gradual accumulation of organic matter like hair and grease on the inner walls of drain pipes. In time, this buildup slows down the normal flow of water thru 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 get caught and totally obstruct the outflow. The end result is a stopped up tub or kitchen sink drain.
How do you unclog a drain?
Although a plunger can sometimes unblock minor blockages, a tough or persistent blockage will call for a visit from one of our qualified 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 clog.
In some cases, the will use an electric snake, which has the power necessary to get through stubborn clogs. Snakes are very good to have around because they’re long enough to get to clogs 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 isn’t caused by debris in your home’s pipes (also called the secondary drains). Instead, the clog is the result of foreign obstructions such as tree roots inside the sewer main drain pipe. 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 try very hard to give you up-front, transparent pricing, custom jobs like these will require us to give you a quotation for the work.
Some Common Sewer Main Blockage Causes in Wayne
A sewer line blockage is the direct result of an item 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 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, particularly sinks with waste disposals.Homeowners often assume it is OK to put all of the kitchen garbage down the disposal. This iscertainly not true– items that should not be placed into a garbage disposal include things like grease, oil and bones. All the aforementioned items can harm or clog your house’s drain system. It simply takes a small shard of bone to get trapped in your sewer line, snagging other things as they pass by, to create a clog. Over time, what was a small obstruction turns into a bigger one, resulting in a complete sewer line blockage.
How Does This Get Fixed?
When your primary sewer line becomes blocked, you will most likely need the services of an experienced plumber. Minor blockages can be cleared by simply removing the sink’s P-trap and clearing out the debris. However, removing large blockages that are located deeper in the drain system is more complicated. These sorts of clogs will call for the plumber to employ a powered plumbing snake to get to and bore through the clog.
Contagion is a very real hazard and can result from sewage leaks. If waste water leaks into your office or home the room must be sanitized and disinfected to prevent development of dangerous microorganisms that can cause tentanus, Hepatitus A and Giardia. In time, sewer water damage can cause very severe health problems especially in the aged, kids and those who suffer from chronic respiratory issues.
Quickly finding the cause of the blockage and leak in your drain and sewer pipes will prevent harm to your family’s health and to your home.
