  • Kitchen drain clogged bad

    My kitchen sink is clogged.

    I have cleaned out the trap and the disposal.

    The clog is way down in the pipes some where.

    I used a 20' snake and got some stuff out but it is still clogged past the 20' mark.

    Any suggestions?

      It's possible that your problem is further than 20ft away. How far is the closest bathroom to your kitchen.

        Live just south of Houston.

        The closest bathroom is about 15 feet away.


        I called roto rooter and they came and gave me an estemate of $189 to snake it out.


        I just got a 50' snake at home depot for $26, trying it out now.

          Well, no luck here either.

          It goes in about 20' and hits a 90 or a T and won't turn.

            Plumber nocked off $50 so its going to cost me $139.

            That is still way to much.

              How much do you think the plumbers drain machine and cable cost?
              139 is a freaking gift. Offer the plumber a soda, water or coffee, and give him a tip.

                  I stopped at $46.

                  $135 for half hour is crazy.

                      This guy is nothing but a price shopper. Lost $46 bucks Because he could not fix his problem.

                      Many people don't understand the cost to be in business.
                      1/2 hour. Bet that does not include gas and drive time.

                      Charging less does not mean more call volume it just means you have to work harder to reach your goals.

                        Since you are deciding what the job is worth, how much is not "too much"?

                          I agree that's too much. That plumber must not be hungry enough. Call around til you find the right price for you.

                            I have an idea.....

                            Go on Craigs list, name your price and I am sure you will get 10 "PLUMBERS" who will work for what "YOU" think is a fair price.

                            Who needs a license and insurance anyways? Your house is your investment, it's your problem.

                            So what does the "BOSS" do for a living? Do you feel underpaid? How much do you make? Are you overpaid?

                            Come on, tell us who you are and what you do for a living? Let us judge your payscale? Do you have any idea what it costs to run a reputable plumbing shop? $139 is too cheap.

                            Please have some respect and answer my questions.....
