What triggers a blocked drain?
A stopped up drain is typically caused by the gradual accumulation of organic substances like hair and grease on the inner walls of drain lines. In time, this build-up reduces the normal flow of water thru the line, similar to cholesterol in the blood vessels. When a clump of debris or a bunch of hair attempts to pass through the pipe, it can become caught and completely block the outflow. The result is a clogged bathtub or kitchen sink drain.
How do I unclog my drain?
Although a plunger can occasionally unclog minor obstructions, a stubborn or constant 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 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 licensed plumber will use an electric snake, which has the power necessary to get through tough clogs. Snakes are very good to have around because they are long enough to reach clogs that are lodged deep inside a drain pipe and ultimately 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). Instead, the clog is the result of foreign obstructions like roots in the sewer main drain pipe. If our plumber determines that the clog is caused by this kind of obstruction in the sewer main, it may require that we hydrojet the main line. While we try very hard to provide up front, transparent quotes, custom jobs like these will require us to give you an estimate for the work.
Some Common Sewer Main Blockage Causes in West Caldwell
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 drop into the toilet. The object may clear the toilet but can become caught or snagged within thesewer line.
Another area of concern is the kitchen sink, particularly sinks with waste disposals.Homeowners often think it is all right to put all of the kitchen waste down the disposal. This iscertainly not true– things that should never be placed into a garbage disposal include grease, any kind of 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 get trapped in your sewer pipes, grabbing onto other things as they pass by, to develop a clog. In time, what was a small obstruction turns into a bigger one, causing a total sewer line blockage.
What Happens Next?
When your primary sewer pipe becomes clogged, you will need the service of an experienced plumber. Minor clogs can be gotten rid of by merely removing the sink’s P-trap and flushing out the debris. On the other hand, removing large clogs that lie deeper in the drain line is a lot more complicated. These kinds of obstructions will call for the plumber to employ a power plumbing snake to reach and cut through the clog.
Contamination is a very legitimate hazard and can cause by sewage leaks. If wastewater leaks into your office or home the space must be sanitized and decontaminated to prevent development of harmful bacteria 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 chronic breathing complications.
Quickly discovering the cause of the obstructions and leak in your drain and sewer pipes will prevent harm to your family’s health and your home.
