2" and under is $250.00 for the K-50 for one hour, if I install a cleanout under the kitchen sink its $125.00 and that is about 95% of the time.


3"-4" lines are $425.00 but that has to be a good customer, the K-1500 is getting to heavy and I give a lot of those calls away.


Anything after the first hour is $125.00 and not pro rated.

K1500 I charge $375. With camera, $575, $50 discount off camera time.

I bought the machine and cables/spools for $200 from my old master.

I rarely take longer than an hour to clean a line. After that itís jetter time or dig time depending on what I find.

I was referred to video and cable a line within the last year. Line was open so I started with the camera. The added time to his bill would cost more than a jet job. Had a couple jobs from him since then. Small time LL.

I unclogged a toilet today, the little kid flushed a full box of Q-tips, hair bands and as I'm pulling the auger out his t-shirt!

Took less than 10 minutes, I charged my minimum 1hr and she gave me 30$ tip. She was happy because the time prior the plumber had to pull the toilet and stuff was jammed underneath with a 700$ bill.

Years ago, grandma watching the grand kids, 4 yo kept flushing toys. She just passed her bill on to her daughter.

Other than giant poops, my kid never flushed a toy or whatever. He knows how to use a closet auger now after DI like instruction.

We have a local electrical/plumbing shop does drain cleaning* for $79.99. Certain exclusions apply.

Not sure how they justify it but its insanely cheap.

Probably with a bunch of hidden fees, that or they lie to them saying they need a repipe to the street. I've seen it here 4-5 times here already. It wouldn't fly here(hideen fees), so many organization would come down on them hard. Then again some scammers get away with it for a very long time.
