“I called Gopher Sewer & Drain to clean out my clogged sewer. They came quickly and cleaned out over 3 lbs of tree roots. They were very careful of my carpet in my basement, cleaned up everything and took it all away. I will call them again when I have a problem.”

Nicole, Richfield, MN

"Miguel has been to our house multiple times over the years and each time is on time, helpful, and efficient. The first, in fact, was an emergency call on Thanksgiving. Prices are reasonable and you definitely get what you pay for. Strongly recommend for someone looking to avoid the big names and go with a local company.

Jon, Minneapolis, MN

“Pedro came out the same day, fixed our plumbing issue, and probably saved us $1000 by recommending the right fix, not fixing unnecessary plumbing like most companies try to do.”

Justin H., Minneapolis, MN

“Had a drain backing up and was tempted to deal with the problem myself...glad I didn’t! Gopher was able to quickly dispatch someone to come out and assess the issue and within an hour had everything back to normal! Pedro was extremely helpful and courteous throughout the whole process. Will use again and would recommend them to anyone. Thank you!”

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 $189.00 and main sewer lines that start at $249.00. 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.
