Plumbing Repair and Renovation
Many people know us for our quality drain cleaning services, but did you know that Roto-Rooter is also the nation’s largest and most trusted full-service plumbing company? We take plumbing very seriously, because a plumbing emergency can mean disruption to your family, and lost productivity and revenue for businesses. Our technicians are professionally trained to service buildings and homes of any type or size, including industrial, retail and corporate-grade plumbing and fixtures, efficiently and expeditiously. From replacing a sink to backed-up sewer lines and emergency flooding, Roto-Rooter technicians can handle whatever plumbing challenges you may face.
Sewer and Drain Cleaning
The most frequent source of sewer drain blockages is the simple buildup of dirt, debris and mineral deposits. If you are a restaurant worker or employed in a food processing facility, you have seen firsthand how quickly grease and other organic matter can accumulate in pipes and drain lines. So what should you do when these blockages occur? Call Roto-Rooter. Since 1935, we have been cleaning sewers and drains, and no job is too big or too small. Trust us―we’ve seen it all!
Trenchless Pipe Repair
Over time, pipes can corrode, crack, and misalign, allowing access for tree roots and other objects to enter into the lines. This can result in blockages and a reduction in waste water flow from your home or place of business to the municipal lines. In some cases, it can also mean sewage overflows, which can create devastation. Roto-Rooter offers “trenchless” methods to replace cracked, broken or leaking pipes without digging, minimizing disruption to people or your property.
Pipe relining repairs a damaged sewer pipe by lining it with a new, “pipe-within-a-pipe.” After cleaning, the existing pipe is lined with a pre-cut and measured felt liner. The liner is saturated in resins and inserted into the damaged pipe, where it is inflated to take on the shape of the host pipe. It is then cured to harden. The function and flow of the pipe is restored 100%, for less time, money and mess than traditional dig and replace methods.
Much the same as pipe relining, pipe bursting does not require access to the area surrounding the damaged portion of pipe. It only requires two small access holes, and pipe bursting is especially useful when replacing a broken pipe with one of equal (or larger) size, or if the existing pipe is out of capacity. This method is cost-effective and reduces damage to pavement, parking lots and building structures, and causes minimal overall disruption.
Roto-Rooter’s expert technicians use specially designed, self-propelled video cameras to provide comprehensive evaluations and recommendations. These cameras allow them to make a visual inspection of sewer lines, from two inches to 36 inches in diameter. Our high-resolution cameras can detect grease buildup, leaks, broken pipes and obstructions, including roots. The video inspection allows our technicians to locate the line, identify the problem and determine the best course of action for each unique job, whether it is rehabilitation or repair.
High Pressure Jetting
Roto-Rooter uses cutting edge water jetting equipment that will safely and effectively clean even the worst obstructed pipe. Under tremendous pressure, a hose is propelled by water into the sewer line. Powerful forward and reverse jets of water clean the line and wash the scale, silt, sand, grease and other materials back to the manhole for removal. This debris is responsibly removed from the line, lessening the chance of future blockages.
Leak Detection and Line Locating
Having trouble finding the source of your water leak? Roto-Rooter’s highly experienced technicians will locate it, whether it is in a mainline, an irrigation leak or someplace in-between. We will quickly pinpoint the source using our cutting edge equipment and technical expertise and take appropriate steps to decrease the cost and waste of water loss. Before digging, Roto-Rooter can also help locate telecommunication, natural gas, fiber optics, television, and other utility lines to prevent damages or injuries from occurring.
Grease Trap Pumping
Restaurants and businesses that are involved in food service and the handling of food wastes are very aware that they must clean grease traps regularly to keep business running without odor and to prevent back-ups. Wastes such as animal fats and vegetable oils can create a blockage in the kitchen plumbing system before they ever reach sanitary sewer lines. Roto-Rooter can be called on to reliably and professionally vacuum, pump and haul the waste from septic tanks, grease traps, catch basins and other liquid waste receptacles, such as car wash pumps. We provide safe and legal disposal of the waste, and we make sure to put the environment first.
Backflow Testing and Repair
Backflow is the reverse flow of dirty water contaminated with feces, pesticides, chemicals, fertilizer and other materials through clean water lines. Most commercial properties are required by law to have backflow meters tested and certified every year. Roto-Rooter technicians perform annual backflow testing, repairs, installation and backflow certification of all types of prevention devices. Your technician will handle all necessary paperwork relating to your annual inspection, and we will remind you when your next annual backflow testing is due so your property remains in good standing with the local water authority. A Roto-Rooter backflow expert can also inspect your plumbing system to verify that your property is equipped with the proper backflow device or devices.
Water damage can be devastating. All it takes is a few inches of water to create a serious threat to building components, interior furnishings and occupants. The harmful effects of water can be reduced by the prompt and reliable water damage restoration services from Roto-Rooter. Our experts will quickly mitigate the damage and work directly with your insurance carrier to minimize any more headaches for you.
