From unclogging a sink to cleaning backed-up sewer lines to providing emergency water restoration services, Roto-Rooter technicians can solve all of your plumbing and drain problems.
Sewer and Drain Cleaning
The simple buildup of dirt, debris and mineral deposits is the most common cause of sewer drain blockages. If you work in a restaurant or food processing facility, you know that grease and other organic matter can accumulate in pipes and drain lines very quickly. So what are you supposed to do when a buildups occurs? Call Roto-Rooter. We have been cleaning sewers and drains for over 80 years, since 1935. No job is too big or too small, and―trust us―we’ve seen it all!
Trenchless Pipe Repair
Pipes can corrode, crack, and misalign over time, which can allow tree roots and other objects to enter the lines. This can produce blockages and cause a reduction in waste water flow from your home or business to the municipal lines. Sometimes, pipe damage can also result in sewage overflows, creating a catastrophe. Roto-Rooter offers “trenchless” methods that replace cracked, broken and leaking pipes without digging, reducing disruption to people and property.
Pipe relining is the process of repairing a damaged sewer pipe by lining it with a new, “pipe-within-a-pipe.” The existing pipe is cleaned and then lined with a pre-cut and measured felt liner. The liner is saturated in resins, inserted into the existing pipe, inflated and then cured to harden, taking the shape of the host pipe. The result is 100% restoration of function and flow in less time and for less money than traditional dig and replace methods.
Much like pipe relining, pipe bursting requires only two small access holes and is particularly suitable when you want to exchange a damaged pipe with one of equal (or even larger) size, or if the existing pipe is out of capacity. This method is cost-effective and minimally disruptive, and reduces the overall damage to pavements, parking lots and building structures.
Roto-Rooter’s trained and experienced technicians provide thorough evaluations and recommendations using specially designed, self-propelled video cameras to make visual inspections of sewer lines, from two inches to 36 inches in diameter. Our high-resolution cameras are able to detect grease buildup, broken pipes, leaks and obstructions, such as roots. Through the video inspection, our technicians can locate the line, diagnose the problem and decide the best course of rehabilitation or repair for each unique job.
High Pressure Jetting
Roto-Rooter uses state-of-the-art water jetting equipment to safely and effectively clean even the most highly obstructed pipes. A hose is propelled by water into the sewer line under tremendous pressure. The sewer line is cleaned by powerful forward and reverse jets of water, which wash the scale, silt, sand, grease and other materials back to the manhole for removal. The debris is responsibly removed from the line, minimizing the chance of future blockages.
Leak Detection and Line Locating
Have a water leak but can’t find the source? Whether it is in a mainline, an irrigation leak or someplace in-between, Roto-Rooter’s highly experienced technicians will locate it. Thanks to our cutting edge equipment and technical expertise, Roto-Rooter will quickly locate the source and put measures in place to decrease the cost and waste of water loss. Roto-Rooter can also help locate telecommunication, natural gas, fiber optics, television, and other utility lines before digging in order to prevent any damages or injuries.
Grease Trap Pumping
Restaurants and businesses involved in food service and food waste handling know very well that grease traps must be regularly cleaned to keep things running without odor or back-up. Animal fats and vegetable oils in particular can block the kitchen plumbing system before they reach sanitary sewer lines. Roto-Rooter can be relied upon to professionally vacuum, pump and haul waste from septic tanks, grease traps, catch basins and other liquid waste receptacles, such as car wash pumps. We provide safe and legal waste disposal, and we make sure to put our environment first.
Backflow Testing and Repair
What is backflow? It is the reverse flow of dirty water through clean water lines. This dirty water can be contaminated with feces, pesticides, chemicals, fertilizer or other materials. Most commercial properties must have their backflow meters tested and certified every year as required by law. Roto-Rooter technicians are trained to perform annual backflow testing and certification, repairs, and installation of all types of prevention devices. We handle all of the necessary paperwork relating to your annual inspection and will notify you when your next annual backflow testing is due so you can keep your property in good standing with the local water authority. A Roto-Rooter backflow expert can also check your plumbing system to ensure that your property is equipped with the proper backflow device or devices.

The prompt and reliable response from Roto-Rooter’s water damage restoration service can significantly reduce the adverse effects of water.
