Drain line repair as a result of a drain line stoppage or breakage can be very costly, on average in the $500 range or more depending on the location of the break and damage to your home. The location of the drain break can enhance the costs significantly, especially in case of outside digging, soil removal or flood damage restoration in your home. Knowing this, Plumbing Plus will provide you with an upfront budget with no hidden fees in order to allow you to make the appropriate arrangements with us for repairs. We do our best to work with any budget and will create a plan that works for you.

There are several reasons why it is absolutely essential to hire a skilled professional to do the repair work. First of all, the problem and its location have to be accurately identified. Drain line stoppages can be caused by built-up debris, which is something any homeowner can take preventative measures for, but in most cases, that’s the best they can do – prevent. If the stoppage has already caused a water overflow, the best way to handle it is to call in a professional. Moreover, if a broken or burst pipe is causing a stoppage, only a professional plumber can identify the location of the breakage, access it safely and repair it effectively. Expert plumbing servicemen at Plumbing Plus use modern tools and equipment like special cameras that go down a problematic pipe and detect leakage with great precision.
What’s more, your drain line is almost entirely underground, and therefore inaccessible. In most cases, the repair work itself is not the most problematic or the most costly – it can entail only replacing the broken pipe or cleaning up the blockage. It is the access that requires proper tools and expertise in order for it to be handled efficiently.
Safety and sanitation are among the most important factors in any repair work. If water overflow has caused flood, even a small-scale one, excess water needs to be removed, areas and property damaged have to be properly cleaned and restored to their pre-damage sanitary state. Excess water is extremely dangerous and contains hazardous debris, so repair work isn’t complete without restoration.
The best preventative measure is being on the lookout for leaks, which are signs of burst pipes and consequent drain line stoppages. Also, you should keep an eye on debris and have it regularly removed. Regular maintenance done by a reliable plumber will ensure your drain line is clean for years to come and mitigate the damages in case of mishaps and sudden pipe bursts.
