What Causes a Sewer Line to Back Up?
There are a variety of problems and issues that can cause your Gwinnett GA sewer line to back up into your home or business. Broken, cracked, and clogged sewer pipes can no longer move water and waste properly, causing a back up. Pipes can be blocked by waste products, grease buildup, or a foreign object that was accidentally flushed. The roots of trees and shrubs can wrap around or break into a pipe, invading the line and blocking it or causing a leak. The joints connecting pipes can lose their seal, which allows water to escape.
Video Sewer Inspection
To determine why your pipes are backed up, a video sewer inspection is often the best investigation tool used by a Gwinnett GA plumbing contractor. This involves a small camera attached to a flexible tube. It is run into the pipes, and the plumber watched the screen for signs of blockage or pipe damage. Once he’s located the issue, he can immediately diagnose the cause of the back up and make plans for repairs.
DIY Clearing Clogged Drains
If your drains are clogged, you have a few tools at your disposal to try before calling a plumber. Start with a plunger. Make sure the rubber head seals over the drain completely, and then use a rhythmic pumping motion to pull up water and any materials that might be clogging the drain. Be sure to remove any drain covers or grates before attempting to use a plunger, otherwise any materials that come up will be impossible to remove.
When the plunger fails, it may be time to try the snake. A plumbing snake is a length of coiled steel spring. It can be run into pipes to loosen and remove clogs. Plumbers use large and very effective snakes, but most homeowners can use a small snake themselves to remove difficult clogs. If you cannot loosen or remove the clog with a snake, it is time to call a plumber. Serious and stubborn clogs will not respond to a homeowner’s attempts to remove them.
