Drain Cleaning & Sewer Service

We’re your Minneapolis-St. Paul area drain experts. With over 100 years of experience beginning with the first McGuire plumber in the 1880s, there truly is no drain too pesky for Paul Bunyan Plumbing & Drains to unclog safely and quickly. We offer an environmentally friendly drain maintenance product called BioOne. If Paul Bunyan doesn’t stand up for a clean Minnesota, who will?

Backed by a team of dedicated and experienced plumbers, Paul Bunyan Plumbing & Drains provides drain cleaning services for kitchen sink drains, shower and tub drains, bathroom sink drains, toilets, downspouts, pools, and sewer lines. There is no clog too tough or too large for our plumbers to handle.

Common Drain Clogging Culprits

  • Food and waste
  • Fat, oils, and grease
  • Detergent
  • Soap and shampoo buildup
  • Hair
  • Dirt, sand, and debris
  • Sewage backup

Take preventative measures to prevent the occurrence of clogs by using a drain catcher and treating your drain lines to a mixture of hot water, baking soda, and vinegar. Or better yet, make BioOne part of your cleaning routine — it’s like a tough guy spa treatment for your drains.


Be on the look-out for slow draining. Even if the water eventually goes down, that doesn’t mean there isn’t a big clog forming. If you see these signs in your home give us a call:

  • Water drains slowly from any sink
  • Water backs up into drain after the sink is empty
  • The shower basin has water pools pooling at the drain
  • Your sink in the kitchen or bathroom smell badly

Our Drain Cleaning Services Include

  • Unclogging
  • Sewer Repair
  • Video Inspection
  • Backflow Testing
  • Trenchless Sewer Repair
  • Hydrojetting Services


All of our drains cleaning services are eco-friendly. We use only environmentally safe products from BioOne. The harsh chemicals in many store-bought drain-clearing products slowly deteriorate your pipes and fixtures. The chemicals may remove the blockage, but they often cause significant damage to your pipes. And no surprise, weak pipes lead can lead to burst pipes.


WHAT IS BioOne®?

BioOne® is a natural biological drain line, septic, and grease trap maintainer that performs without harmful chemicals or additives. BioOne®’s friendly bacteria eat away at greasy slime buildup and odorous residue, leaving your pipes and wastewater systems in top condition all year round when applied on a routine basis. As the old saying goes, ‘an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure’. This natural product works well on:

  • Drain lines
  • Septic systems
  • Grease traps


BioOne® keeps systems clean and free-flowing by unleashing naturally occurring bacteria that thrive on the grease, oil, and stubborn organics found in every wastewater system. Within seconds, these teeny tiny sludge-hungry organisms begin to eat away at waste and other gunk on the lining of your pipes and treatment systems.

Rest assured, it’s safe for both human handling and the environment. Not only is it inexpensive, this technology-based maintenance system is safe and easy to use, BioOne® Liquid formulation has met the EPA’s DfE challenge for biological drain line and septic system products by demonstrating a more positive human health and environmental profile.

Regular drain maintenance with BioOne can help you avoid Paul Bunyan sized problems in the future. BioOne can also save you time, money, and the stress and expense of emergency plumbing services


For really tough clogs, you may need a manual snake or the power of water. Paul Bunyan Plumbing & Drains offers hydrojetting which uses water pressure to knock out tough clogs that are no match for conventional drain cleaning methods. Both methods are strong enough to clear almost any clog, but gentle on your pipes.

We’ve put together a list of signs that may tell you have a sewer line issue:

  • If your home and piping is older than 50 years
  • If your water drains slowly or incrementally
  • If there is little to no drain suction and audible water gurgling
  • If you smell a distinct sewage odor
  • If you notice water leaks and stains
  • If you notice problems starting to occur after recent landscaping

Although it’s rare, there may be a few instances where a sewer blockage happens due to excavation activities or ongoing construction. Hazards associated with natural gas and sewer lines intersecting underground can be a result of these situations. If you have a sewer block be sure to call your gas company to determine if a natural gas line is involved.
