What triggers a blocked drain?
A clogged up drain is generally caused by the gradual build-up of natural matter like hair and grease on the inside walls of drain pipes. In time, this build-up reduces the normal flow of water through the pipe, similar to cholesterol in the bloodstream. When a jumble of debris or a wad of hair attempts to pass through the pipe, it can get stuck and totally obstruct the outflow. The end result is a clogged bathtub or kitchen sink drain.
How do I unclog my drain?
Even though a plunger can occasionally unclog small obstructions, a stubborn or constant blockage will call for a visit from one of our qualified plumbers who will use a tool called an auger (also known as a “snake”). This indispensable tool works in a different way than a plunger works. Our plumber will push the snake into the blockage and crank it to drive the snake deeper into the obstruction.
In other cases, the licensed plumber will use an electric snake, which has enough power to get through tough clogs. Snakes are especially good to have around because they’re long enough to reach obstructions that are lodged deep inside a drainpipe and ultimately 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 (also called the secondary drains). Rather, the clog is the result of invading obstructions such as tree roots inside the sewer main . If our plumber determines that the clog is caused by an obstruction in the sewer main, it may signal that we hydrojet the main line. While we try very hard to give you up front, transparent quotes, custom jobs such as these will necessitate that we give you a quotation for the work.
Some Common Sewer Main Blockage Causes in West Milford
A sewer line blockage 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 variety of things that may unintentionally drop into the toilet. The item may clear the toilet yet can become trapped or snagged within thesewer line.
Another problem area is the kitchen sink, especially sinks with garbage disposals. People often think it is all right to put all kitchen waste down the 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 things can damage or clog your home’s drain pipes. It simply takes a small shard of bone to become trapped in your sewer line, grabbing onto other items as they go by, to develop a blockage. Over time, what was a little obstruction grows into a bigger one, causing a total sewer line blockage.
How Does This Get Fixed?
When your main sewer line becomes blocked, you will most likely need the services of a professional plumber. Minor blockages can be gotten rid of by merely removing the sink’s P-trap and flushing out the debris. However, removing huge clogs that are located deeper in the drain system is a lot more difficult. These types of blockages will call for the plumber to employ a power plumbing snake to reach and cut through the blockage.
Contamination is a very legitimate hazard and can result from sewage leaks. If waste water leaks into your home or office the space must be sanitized and disinfected to stop growth of dangerous bacteria that can cause tentanus, Hepatitus A and Giardia. In time, sewer water damage can cause very serious 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 potential harm to your family’s health and your home.
