FAQ's About Overflowing Drains

The cost of calling a plumber to take care of an overflowing drain would depend on the type and severity. For example, if you have a property with newer plumbing fixtures, it might be less expensive than other buildings where pipes are slightly older or more prone to breaking due to age reasons. Another factor would be the classification: sewage overflow and plumbing issues that deal with black water would usually cost more than the average drainage blockage. Other considerations include location as well.

The price for drain clearing services depends on the circumstances, and any additional plumbing issues will be calculated into its cost. It’s best to schedule an inspection with one of our licensed plumbers and drainage experts, as they may find other parts or pipes needing replacement, which could increase your total bill.

When you notice the signs of any plumbing issue, the perfect time to contact a licensed plumber is right away. An overflowing drain may be tainted with dangerous waste matter, and the issue may not be with the drain itself. Only a well-equipped, seasoned plumber can locate and repair the blockage.

Ask yourself this: “Am I ready to handle sewer water?”; “Am I trained and experienced in fixing an overflowing drain?”; “Am I ready to pay for costly repairs to the damage I have done to my plumbing system and property on top of the plumbing service fees?”; “Am I ready to “never hear the end of this” from my spouse and family members?”

So, before you try anything, call your friendly neighbourhood plumbers at Rowson’s Plumbing Service for suggestions as to what to do while you wait for us to come over to clear the blocked drain.

The internet is a gold mine for information, but it’s best not to try your own plumbing, especially when it comes to overflowing drains. There is a high chance that the overflowing water is tainted by black water. No matter how many instructional videos you watch online, it is never a good idea to tackle an overflowing drain without the proper safety gear, tools, training, and experience.

A professional plumber is always a safe bet to get your drain unblocked. Not only can they tell you if there’s anything wrong with the plumbing as well as provide great advice on how best to take care of it, but also because doing this work yourself could cause damage done that would be difficult (or impossible) for them to fix afterwards!


Overflowing drains can harm your and your family’s health. It promotes the growth of bacteria that cause allergies and diseases. Your sinks will now have slow drainage and sometimes stagnant water. The tainted water poses a risk of infection from viruses and bacteria, and air irritates people with skin conditions like eczema, hay fever, and asthma.

A bad odour

With time, the stagnant water emits foul odours, rendering your home uninhabitable. The pipes could dry out over time, leaving no moisture to absorb odours from food and waste. Aside from the obvious, bad smells can cause headaches, irritability, fatigue, and anxiety in some people.

Mould and Pests

Insects and pests love moist areas. For example, mosquitoes thrive in stagnant water, so blocking drainage encourages them.

Structural Weakness

Blocked drain pipes cause serious damage to the plumbing system. Water is no longer directed correctly. Some of it stagnates while the rest seeps into your home through cracks and crevices. Water collects there, weakening your home’s structure and foundation.
