Unclogging a toilet, sink, or tub drain costs between $100 and $275 on average. Plumbing costs vary depending on the size of the job, travel distance, region, and season. Some plumbers provide free estimates, while others charge a call-out fee of $50 to $200, which usually includes the first hour of labor.
Hair is a major cause of drain blockages because it can get clogged with grease and soap causing a bad blockage. The most effective approach to dealing with hair blockages is to avoid them altogether. Ensure that all drains have hair guards and that these are cleaned on a regular basis.
Even if you have a garbage disposal in your sink, you should never put food waste down a sink drain. This is especially important for non-biodegradable waste such as tea leaves and coffee grounds. Other foods to avoid are grease and oil, which will turn into a solid in the pipes and induce an obstruction.
Tree roots can quickly grow in your pipes, obstructing water flow and causing pipe destruction. Clearing tree roots from pipes can be difficult and may necessitate the use of a rooter, pressure jet cleaning, trenchless repair, or even excavation. Examine the root structure of your trees and plants, as well as the condition of your drains, to avoid extensive and costly repairs.
First, empty the sink of any standing water. Fill it halfway with hot water, and it will create a seal across your drain. Start pumping the sink plunger up and down quickly. Remove the plunger, check to see if water flows, and repeat until water drains readily. If plunging does not solve the problem, it indicates a larger issue that requires a different approach and a call to your plumber.
