Why Do Clogs Form?
Most commonly, clogs form because too much debris made it down the drain. These clogs get stuck in narrow drain pipes and block water from going through. Luckily, these types of clogs can usually be removed with a plunger or with professional equipment like a drain auger (plumbers snake). Clogs are more likely in older pipes which have become corroded. The corrosion builds up in the pipes, causing them to narrow, so debris gets stuck. The corrosion itself can adhere to debris as well. For these reasons, drain cleaning services (water jetting) may be recommended along with clog removal to rid your pipes of buildup.
Some clogs are completely beyond your control. One common example is tree root clogs in sewer pipes. Many homeowners don’t realize that their landscaping is getting into their pipes until the small roots have already invaded and grown into a huge clog. These clogs can also be removed, but require a professional clog rooter.
Professional Methods of Removing Clogs
For small clogs in toilets or kitchen or bath drains, we recommend that you first try to remove them with a plunger. Do not use liquid drain cleaner as your first line of defense against clogs. The toxic chemicals can damage your pipes and are largely ineffective against hard clogs. Liquid drain cleaner won’t work at all in cases where the clog has blocked the entire drain! If plunging doesn’t do the trick, then a plumbers snake can be used to tear a hole through the clog and allow water to flow again.
For hard clogs and sewer main clogs, a clog rooter is needed. A clog rooter works in the same way as a plumbers snake, but supercharged. The rooter has sharp teeth and is motorized. As the rooter is snaked into the clogged drain or sewer, the teeth shred the clog into small pieces and push them out. A clog rooter should only be operated by a specialist because the blades could damage your pipes when used incorrectly.
