Roto-Rooter Plumbing & Drain Services
Sunday morning and half of my basement was under very smelly water. I Googled what to do and followed all the instructions, but nothing worked and I knew I was in over my head.     My Mom actually reminded me of Roto-Rooter and I immediately looked up the Pittsburgh branch at 756 Brownsville Road. I spoke with Mike and he said he was able to even get a technician to come out that same night, but it was late by the time I had called so I scheduled for first thing the next morning. I got two phone calls from Roto-Rooter so I knew the status of when the tech would come and that I should expect a guy named Bill.     The technician, Bill, was extremely professional. He explained about my main sewer line, branches, routine maintenance, he showed me this fancy camera thing so I could see the problems in my pipes. Unfortunately for me, I need to replace a section of my piping, but I know this is an actual fact, because I saw it with my own eyes. That made me feel more confident in my decision.     I have yet to find an electrician, contractor or mason, but I have found a plumbing and drain service. Thank you Bill, for everything you did today.

i had hesitated to call anyone for a few days because I knew the fix was going to be easy. However I decided to go ahead and have a professional take a look anyways. They told me the minimum price upfront and I should have said no which is why I gave the 3 stars. The furnace fired right up when he got there and nothing was needed. I felt like a idiot but still had to pay over $200. I know no one works for free but I live less than a mile away and it took less than 15 min and no work was needed. I'm literally having a hard time sleeping right now for wasting the money. I can understand the $90 for showing up, but charging me 142 for diagnostics when it fired right up without them doing anything has me fired up.

Roto-Rooter Plumbing & Drain Services
Came home to our home in Leetsdale, PA to a sewage back up on Tuesday night. Called Roto Rooter on Brownsville Rd and they set up an appt to come for 11am the next day. Very courteous service from the person on the phone. Bill Slade (the plumber) came right on time and was able to fix the problem. He was very professional, friendly, neat and clean work. Couldn't be more pleased with the service of the plumber or the folks we spoke with on the phone. This is our second time using Roto Rooter. They have earned our trust and business.

So since Mother Nature has decided to have SEVERE mood swings this year....Blessing us with WAY below freezing temps!! My main water line outside froze up under ground. After calling some of my local plumbers, we found are way to Roto-Rooter they came out and used electricity to unthaw our main water line. FYI: If you have Oakmont Water they are NOT responsible for this!! You has a home owner is!! Thanks to Roto-Rooter we have WATER!! They were very professional, informative and FAST!!! MANY THANKS!!!

Had a backed up basement called Roto-Rooter that day they were out at my place by the next morning. They were there pretty much all day trying to unclog the drain. It was a tough clog that needed extra services in which they came out the next day to try and fix. Unfortunately for me the pipes need replacing but the guys that came out were so helpful, professional and so nice they really tried everything they could to help me. I would recommend them to anyone.

Barak Plumbing
I haven't needed a plumber in 6 years...but, needed one for a nagging problem. Barak Plumbing was a fantastic experience. Excellent service and timing. Called in the 10AM expecting them to tell me that they could come out later in the week - nope - they came the exact same day. Prompt, courteous and on-time. I have found my new plumber.

I've used their service twice on different projects and can't even tell you how satisfied I am. They repaired a separation in the sewage line and installed a power vent water heater. Their prices are very comparable with the competition, if not better than the competition. I will continue to use them without any hesitation.

The technician came out right at the beginning of the scheduled time. He explained the situation to me and fixed it quickly and even took the time to do a small extra task to make sure all plumbing system in the home was good. I will always call Barak Plumbing for all my plumbing, drain, sewer and heating needs.

These folks were contacted by the Columbia Gas company when there was a leak detected im my gas line. In less than 24 hours, my line was replaced by 3 very courteous young men. They did the job with as little disruption to the landscaping as possible, and they are cleaning it all up very nicely.
Tips & Advices
Before you hire a plumber, contact their past customers if you're able to. These people can be a wealth of information if you ask them the right questions. Pose the following queries to these former patrons when you get the chance:
  • Were you pleased with the work done?
  • Was the project completed on time?
  • Did the plumber give you a written warranty and guarantee his or her work?
  • Were there any unexpected costs that arose?
  • Would you hire this plumber again? If not, why?
A permit provides added assurance that the work is done correctly. Having this in place means an inspector will check the work your contractor or plumber does to ensure he or she did the job correctly. If you plan on putting your house or commercial building on the market, a real estate agent and prospective buyers will want to check any large work you did to make sure it was done properly.
A trustworthy plumber will have both commercial liability insurance as well as be bonded. The insurance and the bond protects the plumber from paying for any damages made to your house out of pocket. Having professionals that carry both of these policies can protect all of you from any mishaps that could occur while they work on your building.
  • Before calling a plumber, try to unclog your drains and toilets yourself by using a plunger.
  • Make sure you use a standard bell-shaped plunger for your sink and shower drains and a plunger with a flanged end for your toilets.
  • If neither type can loosen the pipe blockage, put a plumber's snake to use.
  • Ratchet the snake down the pipe to eliminate any clogs.
Usually, a leaky or dripping faucet is an easy fix that can be done by anyone who is even slightly handy with tools.. To fix it, first shut off the water under the sink then remove any decorative parts of the faucet and replace the washer and O-ring before reassembling everything.
