Drain Repair Services in St. Paul
Same-Day Drain Repair Solutions in the Minneapolis Area
From brushing our teeth in the morning to cleaning the dishes after dinner, we use our plumbing systems regularly. However, we don’t always know the warning signs of a damaged drain until something catastrophic happens, like a complete blockage or a flood.
Instead of waiting for a large problem to surprise you, it’s important to know the early warning signs of a compromised drain so you can call a drain repair plumber right away.
Signs it’s time to call for drain and sewer repair:
- Unusual gurgling or bubbling noises as water drains
- Strange or unpleasant odors coming from drains
- Slower-than-usual draining
- Frequent clogs or stoppages
- Standing water in showers or sinks
- Toilets that frequently overflow or back up
What To Do When You Have a Problem With Your Drain
If you notice any warning signs of a damaged or compromised drain, you should call our experienced drain repair plumbers as soon as possible.
Many problems seem small, like a clogged bathroom sink, broken kitchen sink drain pipe, or backed-up toilet, but if these problems happen regularly, they may be symptoms of a larger issue like an upstairs shower drain leaking through the ceiling, the need for major pipe replacement, or critical sewer line failure.

Some of the frequently asked questions we receive about Twin Cities drain repair include:
Can snaking a drain make it worse?
DIY snaking can make a bad situation much worse. Here’s why:
- A snake isn’t always the tool you need.
- You can add to the blockage problem rather than fix it.
- You can hurt yourself.
- You could damage your pipes.
- You may use the wrong type/size snake. Snake types include:
- Large drain machines
- Toilet augers
- Top snakes
- You might scratch your porcelain.
Do plumbers fix drains?
Not all plumbers are qualified to work on drains. And not all companies have the specialized equipment needed to replace or work on damaged drains. You need a local plumbing company that specializes in drain repair services for your property.
How do plumbers unblock drains?
If you’ve already tried recommended DIY fixes for your clogged drain, like using baking soda and vinegar or plunging, it’s time to call a professional plumber qualified to work on drains.
Plumbers use a variety of tools, including:
- Camera inspection
- Flexible cable pipe/drain cleaning/unclogging
- Hydro jetting
- Tree root removal
How much does drain unblocking cost?
The cost varies throughout the U.S., but the national average for professional drain unclogging is about $150-$250. A lot depends on the location of the clog, the cleaning technique, and if repairs are needed.
