Rooter Service for Cincinnati and Surrounding Cities
The name “rooter” service originated from tree roots clogging drains. As of today it’s a term that’s used to address all types of drain clearing and drain repair problems.
Plumbing rooter service is a type of plumbing repair that involves any method of drain clearing or pipe repair. Rooter service can be performed by running water through your drains, using tools that snake through your drains to unclog them and sometimes taking parts of the water pipe system apart so that a plumber can take out some of the clogs manually.
Rooter Service for Clogged Plumbing Lines and Drains
Rooter service is the standard for solving slow and clogged drain problems. Blockages and clogs can affect your plumbing in a variety of ways, depending on the type of clog and where it is located. A clog inside one of your home’s drains will typically only affect the appliance or fixture closest to the clog. These clogs are usually made up of organic debris such as food scraps, hair, and soap scum. A larger clog that blocks your home’s sewer line may show up in a few different ways, such as widespread drainage issues in several areas of your home or minor backups in tubs and showers when a toilet is flushed or your washing machine runs. In the severest cases, you may experience wastewater backups that flood your home, causing damage and exposing family members to the hazards of untreated sewage. Sewer clogs can also be caused by debris buildup or non-flushable items in the pipes. Additionally, tree roots can be a major problem when they begin invading and growing into your sewer line in search of water, forming a living, growing clog that cannot be removed without the help of your professional rooter service.
There are some common warning signs that you need to contact a professional plumber for rooter service, including:
- Multiple drains backed up at once
- Gurgling toilets
- Slow or no drainage
- Wastewater backups that flood your home
- Wastewater backups in one plumbing fixture after you use another (for example, water backing up in your tub after you flush the toilet)
