What triggers a blocked drain?
A clogged up drain is generally a result of the gradual build-up of natural substances like hair and grease on the inside walls of drain lines. In time, this build-up slows down the normal flow of water through the pipe, similar to cholesterol in the blood vessels. When a clump of debris or a wad of hair tries to pass through the pipe, it can get stuck and totally obstruct the outflow. The end result is a stopped up shower or sink drain.
Even though a plunger can sometimes unclog small blockages, a tough or constant clog will call for a visit with one of our qualified plumbers who will use a tool called an auger (also called a “snake”). This indispensable tool works in a different way than a plunger does. Our plumber will thread the snake into the clog and use the crank to drive the snake deeper into the obstruction.
In some cases, the will use an electric snake, which has enough power to get through tough clogs. Snakes are very good to have around because they are long enough to reach obstructions that are stuck deep within a drain pipe and ultimately unclog the drain.
Are there any exceptions? Sometimes a clogged sink, tub, shower or even toilet isn’t caused by refuse in your home’s pipes (also called the secondary drains). Rather, the clog is the result of invading 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 Clog Causes in Woodcliff Lake
A sewer line clog is the direct outcome of an item being flushed down the toilet or washed down the drain. Often, the item is a toy or toothpaste tube or any variety of things that may accidentally fall into the toilet. The item may clear the toilet but can become trapped or snagged within thesewer line.
Another problem area is the kitchen sink, particularly sinks with garbage disposals. People often assume it is all right to put all kitchen waste down the garbage disposal. This iscertainly not true– items that should not be placed into a garbage disposal include things like grease, oil and bones. All the previously mentioned items can damage or clog your home’s drain pipes. It simply takes a small bit of bone to get trapped in your sewer line, snagging other things as they pass by, to create a blockage. Over time, what was a little obstruction grows into a bigger one, resulting in a total sewer line blockage.
Is There Hope for My Pipes?
When your primary sewer pipe becomes blocked, you will need the services of a professional plumber. Minor clogs can be gotten rid of by simply removing the sink’s P-trap and clearing out the debris. However, removing large blockages that lie deeper in the drain line is more complicated. These kinds of clogs will require the plumber to use a powered plumbing snake to reach and cut through the clog.
Contagion is a very real hazard and can result from sewage leaks. If wastewater leaks into your office or home the room must be sanitized and disinfected to prevent development of harmful microorganisms that can cause tentanus, Hepatitus A and Giardia. Over time, sewer water damages can trigger very serious health conditions particularly in the elderly, kids and people who suffer from chronic breathing issues.
Quickly finding the root cause of the blockage and leak in your sewer and drain pipes will prevent potential harm to your family’s health and your home.
