Drains we service

We're equipped to handle any/all clogs no matter where they are in your home, including:

  • Kitchen sink drains - After frequent use, food particles and other debris slowly accumulate in your drainpipes, which causes a clog.
  • Bathroom sink drains - Most bathroom sink clogs are due to a combination of hair, grime, and soap scum.
  • Shower drains - Shower drain clogs are typically caused by the build-up of longer hair, soap scum and dirt as well.
  • Toilet drains - A toilet drain can become clogged due to the constant/accidental flushing of debris or other foreign objects.
  • Main sewer lines - Everything from damaged pipes, debris and tree roots can cause clogs or improper draining throughout your sewer system.

Signs you need this

  • Is there a bad smell coming from your drains? If you smell a strong, foul odor whenever you use your kitchen/bathroom sink or shower, you may need a drain clearing.
  • Is your toilet overflowing? If multiple attempts with a plunger don't solve the issue, you may need a professional drain clearing.
  • Is your kitchen sink backed up? If switching on the disposal unit doesn't drain the water, you may need a drain clearing.
  • Is your shower or bath drain clogged? If it takes minutes or even hours for your shower/bathtub to drain on its own, you may need a professional drain clearing.
  • Are multiple fixtures backing up? If several plumbing fixtures are backing up at the same time, it's a sign that your main sewer line is clogged.


We've heard of plumbers offering "warranties" on their drain clearing services. Typically, those warranties are just a tool for plumbers to charge extra when they have to return to a job.

That's not the kind of service we offer!

Our plumbers use their extensive knowledge and experience to clear the clog the first time around. We also take the time to educate you on how to prevent future clogs.

However, if you're unsatisfied with how the Shafer team managed your drain clearing for any reason, you can call us directly and we'll make it right—free of charge.

  • High: $550

The price can vary depending on a number of factors, such as:

  • The severity of the clog: A stubborn clog will raise the price of the job because plumbers will need to use more expensive equipment/methods in order to clear it.
  • The accessibility of the clog: Some jobs require plumbers to remove toilets or sinks in order to reach the clog—especially if the home doesn't have a drain cleanout to access the main sewer line.
  • Adding a camera inspection: Some drain clearings require a camera inspection to determine how many clogs exist, as well as the exact location and nature of the clog.
  • The plumber you hire: The quality of the plumber will always impact the cost. Whatever the job, you want a plumber who's licensed/insured, experienced and reputable—like us!
