How much does it cost to fix a drain?

Answered

If you hire someone to fix your drain and clean it out, it will likely cost around $150-$200. This cost is likely to change based on a few factors, including:

  • The complexity and location
  • The type of repair needed (hydro jetting is more expensive than snaking, for example)
  • If the plumber needs to perform a video inspection
  • If the plumber needs to fix issues with the main sewer line
  • If it’s an emergency repair
  • Or if the plumber has to provide additional plumbing repairs

Always get estimates from a handful of plumbers to find out exactly how much your repair will cost.
