When should you call a plumber for a clogged drain?

Thumbtack Editors

Assess the situation and try a few at-home solutions. For example: 

  • Did you try several DIY methods (using a plunger, drain cleaner, drain snake, etc.)?
  • Are there multiple clogged drains in your home? 
  • Do you suspect your main sewer line is clogged?

If you answer yes to any of these questions, it might be worth contacting a plumber near you to come diagnose and fix your drain issue.
