I can't believe how quickly Matt got here, how patiently he explained things, and how reasonably he charged us. Thank you, Roto Rooter! I'll call you again, although hopefully not soon :)

Roto-Rooter Plumbing & Drain Services
I thought I simply had a clogged drain when I made the call to Roto-Rooter for service, but unfortunately it has turned out to be a much deeper problem for this homeowner. After the service man cabled the kitchen drainpipe, we found out the underground pipe was broken when the cable got stuck about 10 ft out and wouldn't go any further or retract again. Mike 6564 patiently explained the problem and had a sewer solution specialist Glen Roeder come and survey the issue. It was thoroughly explained to us what repairs were needed. Mike6564 will return tomorrow to start the excavation and pipe replacement process and said we should be completed in 2 days depending on a county permit inspection. I'm glad I called Roto-Rooter as these folks come out within 1 - 2 hours to assess any problem and the servicemen give the customer an accurate bid as to what final costs could be. I've used Roto-Rooter people for over 15 years for all my plumbing/drain issues and have been pleased with their service and professionalism.

Outstanding service and expertise. Been using Roto-Rooter for over two decades with always the best results. Our tech Jason E. 3686 set to work quickly and did a wonderful job. Cleaned up and left the work site better than he found it.

I placed the call to Roto Rooter and Terry, my serviceman, was there within an hour. He got right to work, took care of the immediate problem and was done! He was not here an hour. He was friendly, helpful and informative. I would recommend Roto Rooter to friends.

Our plumber did an excellent job. He was professional, and replaced our washer connections very quickly. The cost was very reasonable. I'll definitely call Roto-Rooter again for any plumbing problems.

Tips & Advices
The following tools and common household objects can be used to clean drains at home:
  • A plunger
  • A drain snake
  • Baking soda
  • Vinegar
  • Grease-fighting dish soap
Homeowners can mix boiling water with any of the last three products to break up grease and grime.
The main ingredients in clog removal liquid products are sodium hydroxide and sodium hypochlorite. According to the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry, both break down into relatively harmless components when it comes into contact with water or soil. However, both substances cause mild irritation to skin and internal tissues.
Also known as a drain auger, a drain snake is a coiled device around ΒΌ-inch thick. To use a drain snake, put the end into the entrance of the drain. Turn the handle to force the snake deeper, using extra pressure to force it through the bend in the pipe. Keep turning until the snake hits the clog, then either pull the snake and remove the obstruction or force it through. Once the snake is out of the drain, run the water on full blast for a few minutes to ensure the obstruction is completely removed.
Plungers don't damage residential pipes, but the force created by the act of plunging weakens the seal between the toilet and the floor.
Many plumbers, both local businesses and nationwide chains, offer emergency or same-day services.
