From unclogging a sink to cleaning backed-up sewer lines, 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 repairs damaged sewer pipes without digging up the surrounding area. During the process, the pipe is repaired by lining it with a new, “pipe-within-a-pipe.” The existing pipe is cleaned and then lined with a felt liner that has been pre-cut and measured. The pre-cut liner is saturated in resins, inserted into the damaged pipe and inflated. It is then cured to harden, taking the shape of the host pipe. The result is 100% restoration of pipe function and flow in less time, money and interruption 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
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 other businesses that are involved in food services and wastes―particularly animal fats and vegetable oils that flow through the kitchen plumbing system before they reach sanitary sewer lines―know only too well they must clean grease traps regularly to keep business running without odor or back-up. Roto-Rooter dependably and professionally vacuums, pumps and hauls the waste from septic tanks, grease traps, catch basins and other liquid waste receptacles, such as car wash pumps. We provide safe, legal disposal of the waste, and always put our environment first.
Backflow Testing and Repair
What is backflow? Backflow is the reverse flow of dirty water through clean water lines, which can introduce contaminants such as feces, pesticides, chemicals, fertilizer and other materials. Most commercial properties are required by law to have yearly testing and certification of their backflow meters. Roto-Rooter technicians perform annual backflow testing and certification, repairs, and installation of all types of prevention devices. We will handle all paperwork relating to your annual inspection and will send you a reminder 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 do an inspection of your plumbing system to confirm that your property is equipped with the correct backflow device or devices.
