What causes a blocked drain?
A clogged drain is typically caused by the gradual build-up of natural matter such as hair and grease on the inside walls of drain lines. Over time, this buildup reduces the regular flow of water thru the line, similar to cholesterol in the blood vessels. When a jumble of debris or a wad of hair attempts to pass thru the pipe, it can get stuck and completely block the flow. The end result is a stopped up bathtub or kitchen sink drain.
How do I unclog my drain?
While a plunger can occasionally unclog minor blockages, a stubborn or persistent blockage will call for a visit with 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 drive the snake deeper into the obstruction.
In other cases, the will use an electric snake, which has the power necessary to get through tough clogs. Snakes are especially good to have around because they’re long enough to get to clogs that are stuck deep inside a drainpipe and ultimately unclog the drain.
Are there any exceptions? Frequently a clogged sink, tub, shower or even toilet is not caused by refuse in your home’s pipes (also called the secondary drains). Instead, the clog is the result of foreign obstructions like tree roots in the sewer main . If our plumber determines 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 require us to give you an estimate for the work.
Some Common Sewer Main Clog Causes in Wharton
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 variety of things that may accidentally drop into the toilet. The item may clear the toilet but can become caught or snagged within thesewer pipe.
Another problem area is the kitchen sink, particularly sinks with waste disposals. People often think it is all right to put all kitchen garbage down the disposal. This iscertainly not true– products which should never be placed into a garbage disposal include grease, oil and bones. All the aforementioned items can damage or clog your house’s drain pipes. It just takes a small bit of bone to get trapped in your sewer pipes, snagging other items as they pass by, to develop a blockage. Over time, what was a small obstruction turns into a bigger one, causing a complete sewer line blockage.
Is There Hope for My Pipes?
When your primary sewer line becomes blocked, you will most likely need the service of an experienced plumber. Minor obstructions can be gotten rid of by merely removing the sink’s P-trap and clearing out the debris. However, removing large clogs that lie deeper in the drain system is more complicated. These types of blockages will call for the plumber to use a power plumbing snake to reach and cut through the clog.
Contamination is a very real hazard and can cause by sewage leaks. If wastewater leaks into your home or office the room must be sanitized and disinfected to stop growth of harmful bacteria that can cause tentanus, Hepatitus A and Giardia. In time, sewer water damage can trigger very serious health problems particularly in the aged, children and those who struggle with chronic breathing issues.
Quickly finding the root cause of the obstructions and leak in your drain and sewer pipes will prevent potential harm to your family’s health and to your home.
