Clogged-Drain

The average reported costs to repair a clogged drain run about $205, with a low cost of $80 and $505 on the high end.1 While most homeowners will spend between about $125-$285 per job, there are some things homeowners should keep in mind regarding the costs involved with repairing a clogged drain:

  1. Take advantage of early signs of a blockage. Taking care of signs of a clog at the first sign of a problem is the most cost-effective way to remedy the situation. With small, slight, new clogs, a homeowner can often take care of it without a professional, and sometimes only requires a plunger and a bottle of drain cleaner. The longer you wait, the more expensive it can become to fix it. Small jobs cost about $80 average, while clearing severe blockages can cost upwards of $500.

  3. The hourly rate that professional plumbers charge is one of the biggest factors in cost, and rates can differ according to regional and seasonal variations. Costs will also vary according to the time of day and day of the week a plumber is called; emergency calls for services outside of normal business hours normally are costlier.
  4. The cause of the clogged drain can also affect the cost and time required for the remedy. Hair, food debris, and scum are easy to dissolve and flush through pipes and plumbing systems. However, repairing issues and blockages relating to corroded pipes is an entirely different issue, and can involve removing and replacing pipes at additional costs.
