Roto-Rooter Plumbing & Drain Services
We were having a horrible catastrophe with our plumbing right before the first predicted blizzard of 2015. We were getting a backup of sewage into our sinks in the basement and our bathtub. We have 5 people living in the home-two be elderly, including my mother who has dementia. Believe it or not, we had the flu at that time and could not use the toilet. It was very stressful with everyone being sick and this plumbing issue happening at the same time. I contacted Roto Rooter the night before the blizzard, by computer to request an appt for the next day. They came by early afternoon. The first worker came with an 85 ft snake, but could not completely clear the tree roots and clog. He saw my anxiety and tried to contact the team that could send out a jet stream power machine, which could reach 135 ft to flush the pipes. He stayed for an extra 1/2 just to make sure the jet stream machine team would come before the storm got worse. It had already started to snow heavily, so this was a sacrifice on their part. I did not get charged for the first attempt to clear the pipes, because that is the policy of Roto Rooter to not charge if they can not fix the problem. With the pipes being old, the jet stream team reduced the pressure of the machine to protect the pipes from breaking. We were given a 6 month guarantee that if the problem was not properly fixed, they would come back free of charge. All in all, my experience with all the workers has been very amazing in this day and age, when good service is hard to find. They tried to work with us in every way, including coming back free of charge to check a separate issue having to do with a fill valve problem with our toilet. I would recommened Roto Rooter for their professionalism, team effort, quality of machinery, warranty on the work done, and levels of service to make the job more efficient. Whether it is a simple or serious problem, Roto Rooter can help!My location is Bridgeport,CT

I have a three family house, and the second floor apartment's kitchen sink backed up and water was backing up into it. Roto-Rooter came out on a Sunday and gave me a free estimate. There were some other drains in the building that had smaller problems. The service person gave me an estimate for snaking the one clogged drain, which I thought was really high. However, the problem needed to be fixed, so I said ok. He then started working on the drain, and he was here for 2-2 1/2 hours. He told me how to deal with the other drain issues, and discounted the service in order to add in a bottle of maintenance liquid for the cost of the original estimate.Needless to say, I was very happy, as was my tenant.

A two inch line was blocked. Mike showed up quickly and actually did a good job. Mike was very sales oriented. He show me a price list for different size lines -- Two sink lines where snaked -- $465 ( less $40 discount ) and half price for the second drain. Total - $657.50.This was our first experience with a drain clog. Mike did a good job, and did attempt to sell me a drain preventative cleaner for $100 a bottle - ( 2 bottles were recommended). Check with a local plumber before proceeding with Roto-Rooter - to get comfort with the pricing before they begin. Although he did a good job, next time i will shop it with someone else.

I cant thank Roto-Rooter enough for their speedy, professional and spectacular service! They were at my house within two hours of me calling and stayed until 10:30 pm assessing our pipe damage and trying to work with us to devise an affordable and functional fix! We absolutely loved Alex, he not only worked hard to find us the best cost effective solution but he spoke in terms that we as clueless new home owners understood! Peterson was at our house the next morning and did an excellent job fixing our complicated pipe issues!! Deff recommend Roto-Rooter :)

Needed a sink pipe fixed and had toilet problems, which needed to be fixed asap as we were having 9 family members coming to stay with us. The woman on the phone was extremely patient as I had screaming boys in the back (also one of them wanted to say hi to her and she obliged). Our technician, Thomas was extremely friendly, personable and professional. He explained everything thoroughly and was able to fix the problems within a reasonable amount of time.

Atomic Rooter did an excellent work. I needed their help on emergency basis to fix the bathroom. Another contractor had suddenly disappeared - rendering both my bathrooms dysfunctional. Also, the vanity was more contemporary needing delicate care. I am happy with Atomic Rooter and their plumbers (KP) who worked to address my needs on urgent basis on 6/24/2014 completing to my satisfaction.

We had a problem with our kitchen sink and garbage disposal that backed up in the sink in our basement. The sink was full of nasty water that spilled out onto our basement floor. We called Roto-Rooter and within 1 hour the technician was there and had the problem resolved in a short time. They were really great. My location is East Haven

Roto-Rooter made it such a pleasant experience to schedule an appointment. Alan, called before he arrived at my home and he was friendly, professional, and skilled. He diagnosed our problem and stuck by his pricing. It was such a pleasure to do business with Alan and Roto-Rooter.

I keep on keepin' on, returning to Roto-Rooter for services. Absolutely helpful, know what they're doing, and speedy. I had a toilet that would not flush, improper venting, and clogged lines. They fixed it all and home life is better than before.
Tips & Advices
Yes. If you're interested in buying a new home or property, it's smart to hire a contractor or a plumbing service to not only tell you if the building's foundation is sound, but also if the pipes are in good working order.
  • Don't use your toilet or kitchen sink like a trash can by stuffing hard to flush material down the drain or pouring fats and oils down the pipe.
  • Throw coffee grounds and eggshells in the garbage instead of in your sink.
  • Only use your toilet to flush human waste and toilet paper
Some states do not require plumbers to be licensed, but for the safety of your house, it is important to have  a licensed plumber to do the needed work. A licensed plumber means the person completed the necessary education or training required to work as a professional tradesperson. Hiring a licensed plumbing service means the people working on your building are knowledgeable about water and gas pipes.
Even with a referral it is  best to hire a plumber to do a simple, everyday maintenance task for you first so you can judge his or her work. If you're happy with it, save their contact information so you'll have them on hand in case you need an emergency repair.
Water discoloration is  likely due to old iron pipes, or recent use of a hydrant or water main that disturbed the usual flow of water. Keep your water running for a minute or so and it should run clear after a while.
