Few scenarios are quite as nerve-racking as a sudden water leak in your home’s water or sewer pipes.

What triggers a stopped up drain?
A stopped up drain is generally a result of the slow accumulation of natural substances like hair and grease on the inner walls of drain lines. Over time, this build-up reduces the normal flow of water through the pipe, much like cholesterol in the blood vessels. When a clump of debris or a bunch of hair attempts to pass thru the pipe, it can get caught and totally block the outflow. The end result is a stopped up tub or sink drain.
While a plunger can sometimes unclog small obstructions, a stubborn or constant blockage will require a visit from one of our licensed plumbers who will use a tool called an auger (also known as a “snake”). This tool works in a different way than a plunger does. Our plumber will push the snake into the clog and crank it to send the snake deeper into the clog.
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 clogs that are lodged deep inside a drain pipe and finally unclog the drain.
Are there any exceptions? Sometimes a clogged sink, tub, shower or even toilet is not caused by debris in your home’s pipes (called the secondary drains). Instead, the clog is the result of invading obstructions like tree roots in the sewer main . If our plumber discovers that the clog is caused by this kind of 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 pricing, custom jobs such as these will necessitate that we give you a quotation for the work.
Some Typical Sewer Main Clog Causes in Woodland Park
A sewer line blockage is the direct result of an object being flushed down the toilet or washed down the drain. Often, the item is a toy or toothpaste tube or any number of things that may accidentally drop into the toilet. The item may clear the toilet yet can become trapped or snagged within thesewer pipe.
Another problem area is the kitchen sink, particularly sinks with garbage disposals.Homeowners often think it is all right to put all of the kitchen waste down the disposal. This iscertainly not true– products that should not be placed into a garbage disposal include things like grease, oil and bones. All the previously mentioned items can damage or stop up your house’s drain pipes. It simply takes a small shard of bone to get trapped in your sewer pipes, snagging other items as they go by, to create a clog. In time, what was a little blockage turns into a larger one, resulting in a complete sewer line blockage.
What Happens Next?
When your main sewer line becomes clogged, you will need the services of a professional plumber. Minor clogs can be cleared by simply removing the sink’s P-trap and flushing out the debris. However, removing huge blockages that lie further in the drain line is a lot more complicated. These kinds of blockages will call for the plumber to use a power plumbing snake to get to and cut through the blockage.
Contamination is a very legitimate hazard and can cause by sewage leaks. If wastewater leaks into your office or home the room must be sanitized and decontaminated to stop development of dangerous microorganisms that can cause tentanus, Hepatitus A and Giardia. In time, sewer water damages can cause very serious health problems especially in the aged, children and people who struggle with chronic breathing complications.
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.
