What causes a clogged drain?
A stopped up drain is usually caused by the gradual accumulation of natural substances like hair and grease on the inside walls of drain lines. Over time, this build-up reduces the normal flow of water through the line, similar to cholesterol in the blood vessels. When a clump of debris or a wad of hair tries to pass thru the pipe, it can get caught and totally obstruct the flow. The result is a clogged bathtub or sink drain.
How do you unclog a drain?
Even though a plunger can sometimes unclog minor blockages, a stubborn or persistent clog will call for 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 does. Our plumber will thread the snake into the clog and use the crank to send the snake deeper into the obstruction.
In other cases, the will use an electric snake, which has enough power to penetrate stubborn clogs. Snakes are especially handy because they’re long enough to get to obstructions 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 (called the secondary drains). Rather, the clog is the result of invading obstructions such as tree roots inside the sewer main . If our plumber discovers that the clog is caused by an obstruction in the main sewer drain, it may signal that we hydrojet the main line. While we do try very hard to give you up-front, transparent pricing, custom jobs like these will necessitate that we give you an estimate for the work.
Some Common Sewer Main Blockage Causes in Wyckoff
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 number of things that may accidentally drop into the toilet. The item may clear the toilet but can become caught or snagged within thesewer line.
Another area of concern is the kitchen sink, especially sinks with waste disposals.Homeowners often think it is all right to put all kitchen garbage down the disposal. This iscertainly not true– items which should never be placed into a garbage disposal include things like grease, any kind of oil and bones. All the aforementioned items can hurt or clog your house’s drain system. It only takes a small shard of bone to get trapped in your sewer line, grabbing onto other things as they pass by, to develop a clog. Over time, what was a little blockage turns into a bigger one, causing a total sewer line obstruction.
What Happens Next?
When your primary sewer line becomes blocked, you will need the service of an experienced plumber. Minor blockages can be gotten rid of by simply removing the sink’s P-trap and clearing out the debris. On the other hand, removing large blockages that are located further in the drain line is more difficult. These kinds of clogs will require the plumber to employ a powered plumbing snake to get to and cut through the clog.
Contamination is a very legitimate hazard and can cause by sewage leaks. If wastewater leaks into your home or office the room must be sanitized and disinfected to prevent growth of harmful bacteria that can cause tentanus, Hepatitus A and Giardia. Over time, sewer water damage can cause very severe health conditions especially in the aged, children and those who struggle with persistent respiratory issues.
Quickly discovering the root cause of the blockage and leak in your sewer and drain pipes will prevent harm to your family’s health and to your home.
