Sewer and Drain Cleaning

Sewer and Drain CleaningThe 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 often crack, corrode, and misalign, creating access for tree roots and other objects to enter the lines. The consequence of this can be blockages and the interruption of waste water flow from your home or business to the municipal lines. In some cases, it can lead to sewage overflows, which can be a disaster. Roto-Rooter offers “trenchless” methods to replace cracked, damaged and leaking pipes without any digging. This assures that the disruption to people and property are minimal.

Pipe Relining

Pipe relining is the process of repairing a damaged sewer pipe by lining it with a new, “pipe-within-a-pipe.” The existing pipe is cleaned and then lined with a pre-cut and measured felt liner. The liner is saturated in resins, inserted into the existing pipe, inflated and then cured to harden, taking the shape of the host pipe. The result is 100% restoration of function and flow in less time and for less money than traditional dig and replace methods

Pipe Bursting

Similar to pipe relining, pipe bursting requires only two small access holes. This method is especially useful when replacing a damaged pipe with one of equal (or even larger) size, or if the existing pipe is out of capacity. This cost-effective method can be used advantageously to reduce damage to pavements, parking lots and building structures, while minimizing disruption overall.

Video Inspection

Roto-Rooter’s highly trained technicians provide comprehensive assessments and recommendations using specially designed, self-propelled video cameras to visually inspect sewer lines from two to 36 inches in diameter. Our high-resolution cameras record grease buildup, leaks, broken pipe and obstructions, such as roots. The video inspection allows us to locate the line, identify the compromise and determine the best course of rehabilitation or repair for each unique job.

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. We responsibly remove debris from the line, lessening the chance of future blockages.

Leak Detection and Line Locating

Can’t pinpoint the source of your water leak? No matter where it is, in a mainline, an irrigation leak or someplace in-between, Roto-Rooter’s highly trained and experienced technicians will locate it. Using our technical expertise and cutting edge equipment, Roto-Rooter will quickly find the source of the leak and take action to decrease both the cost and waste of water loss. In order to prevent damage or injury from occurring, Roto-Rooter can also help you to locate telecommunication, natural gas, fiber optics, television, and other utility lines before digging.

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. You can call on Roto-Rooter 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

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. The law requires most commercial properties 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.

Water Restoration

Water damage can be disastrous. A few inches of water can be a serious danger to building components, interior furnishings and occupants. Roto-Rooter’s prompt and reliable water damage restoration services can reduce the harmful effects of water. Our professionals will work quickly to mitigate the damage and work directly with your insurance carrier, reducing the headaches for you. Roto-Rooter’s well-trained and knowledgeable water restoration experts have received Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) and perform water restoration services in compliance with the IICRC S500 standards for professional water damage restoration.
