How much does it really cost to call a a plumber to unblock my drain?
A plumber will charge approximately the same price as a professional drain cleaning company. The main difference is that a reputable drain cleaning company uses more advanced high pressure drain cleaning equipment whereas a plumber will most likely use drain rods, a drain snake or a kinetic plunger to attempt to unblock the pipes.
These tools are adequate in puncturing a hole in whatever has blocked the line, but they are not as effective as a high pressure drain cleaning machine which breaks apart the entire blockage and then removes broken up parts of the blockage completely from your pipeline.
Besides this, the plumber must use physical force when using conventional tools, and this often causes damage to the pipes and their joins. In turn, this can result in unwanted leaks which saturate the concrete and eventually become visible on your walls.
Our high pressure drain cleaning service includes a CCTV camera inspection survey of the line to prove that the blockage has been permanently removed.
