Cost of unclogging sink

Wednesday 29 December 2021

What does it cost to unclog a sink?

As you wash the dishes every day, food and other particles get stuck in your kitchen drains, which over time can cause them to become clogged. In fact, clogged sinks are the most common reason for calling plumbers and are considered a minor problem. However, a clogged sink can also be a sign of a more serious plumbing problem, so it should be fixed by a professional.

The average cost for unclogging a sink is between €150 and €500, with most people paying around €300 to unclog a kitchen drain using an electric hose. At the lower end of the spectrum, you can pay as little as €100 for small clogs at any kitchen drain that is not the main one with a hose. At the high end, you can pay up to €1,350 for emergency calls to the plumber outside office hours for serious clogs in the main.
