What Our Customers Say

"I called Pedro on a Friday night at 6pm during the Covid-19 pandemic with a floor drain backing up anytime water was used in my house. Miguel was at my house at 8am on Saturday morning and used an auger to clear my main sewer line. Pedro ended up having to come too because my house sits back from the street and they needed more than 100ft of cable to reach the clog. They were able to clear the line and replace the corroded cap in 2 hours and everything is draining great now. They were friendly, efficient and knowledgeable. Highly recommend them for service in the Twin Cities and will call them again if I ever need service. It was cheaper than expected so that was great too. I'll be getting my line scoped later this summer and will be using GSD."

Dave, Minnetonka, MN

"Gopher Sewer & Drain for the win! Pedro got someone over to my house after business hours in less than 30-minutes. Eduardo went above and beyond working on my drain - three tries plus an attempt to locate a different option. He finally got through and fixed the problem! Really appreciated all interactions with this company.

Katie, Minneapolis, MN

"Amazing service! He was in and out in no time and left the bathroom spotless!

Ed, Columbia Heights, MN

"Pedro responded quickly and did a thorough and effective job resolving our clogged drains. We had a different plumber out to fix the same problem a few weeks earlier. That plumber snaked the drain, and that helped for a short time. Pedro soon figured out that the line from the kitchen was majorly clogged from years of use, and it had to be blasted with water. Simply snaking it was a waste of time. He also replaced a smaller line with a larger one. The amount of gunk he cleaned out was amazing. The money spent on the first plumber was a complete waste. Gopher wasn't cheap, but I feel like Pedro correctly diagnosed and fixed the problem.

Thomas, Roseville, MN

"Pedro and Gopher Sewer and Drain came out twice in three days to fix to broken pieces of my shower. Pedro was very kind, professional, and took extra time explaining the plumbing issues so I understood them. I will definitely call Gopher Sewer and Drain next time I have any plumbing issues.

FAQs

View The Most Common FAQs From Customers

Why are my drains backing up?

Drains back up for a variety of reasons. Toilet paper buildup or, more commonly, improperly flushed items such as feminine hygiene products and paper towels can easily clog up a main sewer line. Tree roots or broken or dipped pipes can also cause a sewer line clog. Smaller drains (such as kitchen sinks and bathroom sinks or tubs) can clog up over time with food waste, oils, soap scum build up and hair.

When should you call a plumber for a clogged drain?

If you see your drains are not draining normally, notice unpleasant odors, or have an active backup, it’s time to call a drain technician. Try to avoid using store bought drain cleaning solutions such as Drano, which contain toxic and harsh chemicals that actually damage your pipes. The sooner you address the situation with a professional the easier and more cost effective the solution will be.

How much does it cost to clear a drain?

We have some of the lowest prices in town for residential drain cleaning. The price changes depending on the drain and the service requested. We have interior drains that start at $159.00 and main sewer lines that start at $219.00. We offer both cable cleaning and hydro jetting services.

How often should you snake your drain?

Optimal drain cleaning frequency depends on your plumbing set up, foliage and what preventative measures you are taking. For smaller drain lines we recommend maintenance drain snaking services be performed every few years or so. We often recommend yearly maintenance cleanings of main sewer lines, especially if a home has a yard full of trees or there are known issues with the line, such as dips. If you have frequent back ups it’s a good idea to get on a maintenance schedule to get ahead of any potential problems.

What is hydro jet drain cleaning?

Hydro jet drain cleaning is the quickest and most reliable method to not just unclog, but fully clean lines that are obstructed by high volumes of grease, sludge, sediment, or tree roots. Hydro jets, or water jets, are large tanks of water connected to heavy duty hoses with specific nozzles that direct water at an extremely powerful velocity throughout the walls of pipes. The pipes are scoured clean by this high pressure stream of water, leaving them virtually like new.

When is a clogged drain an emergency?

A clogged drain can turn into an emergency very quickly. The most urgent of drain clogs is your main sewer line. This is the line that carries sewage from your house to the street and city sewer. If there is a blockage in this line any water used in the home will cause sewage to back up into your basement (or lowest drain depending on your set up). If flushing the toilet, using water in the shower or sinks causes water to appear in your floor drains you should call a professional immediately. Our technicians are standing by to help with any emergency drain cleaning problem.

How to clean a floor drain in the basement?

The most cost effective way to perform a floor drain cleaning in the basement is to cable the line. Our trained drain cleaning technicians will utilize heavy duty cable machines with an appropriate sized blade to clear the blockage or build up.
