If your drains are clogged, backing up, or smelling bad, this can be stressful! Upon arriving, we can determine what the problem is and then quickly get rid of the cause.
Cabling or Snaking- a drain snake is typically the first attempt to rid your drain pipes of built up sludge, food, hair, or other common drain clogging items. Drain snakes can also be used to remove tree roots from big drains and sewer pipes too. A drain snake is a long flexible metal coil that is inserted into drain pipes while it is spun at high speeds in an effort to remove obstructions in the pipe.
Water Jetting- this method can be used for more troublesome jobs and involves using powerful water pumps that shoot high-pressure water through flexible hoses that are ran through your drain and sewer pipes. A specialized nozzle is mounted on the end of the hose which concentrates high pressure water on the walls of the pipes and flushes them out. This is one of the most environmentally friendly ways to clean drain pipes and it can flush debris out of even the most clogged of pipes.
If you have a noisy or dripping faucet it is something that you should take care of before the problem becomes worse. We can quickly repair or replace faucets of all kinds.

Floor Drain Repair
Rooter-Man provides a variety of floor drain repair services to get it working properly.
Clogged Floor Drains - Pieces of debris and sludge builds up on the walls of the floor drain pipes until they are eventually clogged. This is the most common cause of a clogged floor drain. The first signs of clogging floor drain will often start as small puddles forming around the floor drain. Another sign is a sewage smell coming from the floor drain.
Crystallization inside the floor drain pipes - Crystallization inside the floor drain pipes can be caused by soaps and other sweetened liquids like soda or coffee. As these liquids pass through the pipes they can leave residue behind that build up and harden until the pipes become restricted or completely closed. Overflow and flooding can occur when your floor drains are not working properly!
Drain Pipe breaks - As drain pipes age they can crack and break. If you can pour a large volume of water down your floor drain with no pooling whatsoever, your drain pipe may be cracked or broken. Rooter-Man can diagnose pipes by using a specialized video camera to perform pipe inspections. Real-time visual inspections of pipes let us find out what condition they are in without digging them up.
Garbage Disposal Repair
When your garbage disposal stops working it is most commonly because of a simple clog, however, old garbage disposals can have mechanical failures as well. We can unclog, repair, or even install a new garbage disposal if needed.
Besides clogging and jamming, some other problems that you may encounter with your garbage disposal include:
Garbage disposal makes a lot of noise

Grease Trap Pumping
Rooter-Man provides grease trap pumping and maintenance programs to chain restaurants as well as individual restaurants and food establishments. Call us to discuss your needs, and we will work with you to determine what schedule will keep your business operating as smoothly as possible.
Why grease traps need to be cleaned?
One common cause of a commercial septic system failure is the lack of pumping of grease traps. Rooter-Man recommends that when grease is 1 foot deep in a tank that is 4 feet deep, the grease floating on top of the tank should be pumped out including the sludge at the bottom of the tank. However, many municipal health departments require a twice a year complete pumping of the grease trap even if the grease deposit has not reached the 25% level.
Video camera pipe inspections is a technology used by us to detect pipe leaks and breaks. Our state-of-the-art video camera inspection equipment is a bendable fiber optic wire with a high-resolution video camera attached at its end. The device is complete with sensors. Once the camera is introduced into the pipe it enables our technicians to quickly complete visual assessments of underground pipes and to locate any leaks or breakage. The video images as well as the diagnosis are saved and a copy will be provided to you upon request.
Problems commonly identified by a video camera inspection include:
1) Damaged pipes - collapsed or broken pipes
2) Misaligned pipes - caused by the ground freezing, or shifting earth
3) Clogged pipes - grease build up, or any kind of blockage
4) Deterioration of pipes - corrosion or oxidation formed over time
5) Root invasion - tree roots that grow and damage pipes or sewer lines

We tend to not think too much about our toilets until something happens and they are not working properly. If you are experiencing issues with your toilet, give us a call and we will quickly get the problem solved.
Common toilet problems we encounter:
1) Random or constant flushing - when toilets flush and start filling up on their own without any human involvement, this could be caused by one of two things: the refill tube is too long, or there is a poorly fitted or leaking flapper. Random or constant flushing translates to a higher monthly water bill
2) Compound flushing - there are times when you flush only once but the toilet flushes twice or even three times. This is usually caused by a high water level and can be remedied by adjusting the float control inside the tank
3) Sluggish flushes - this is when a toilet only flushes partially and could be caused by a low water level or a tightening of the chain that connects the flush handle and flapper valve
4) Base leaks - a leak near the base of the toilet or below the tank when the toilet is flushed likely means that the wax gasket between the drain pipe and the toilet needs to be changed

Rooter-Man provides both water heater installation and repair services. With over 40+ years of customer satisfaction, you can count on Rooter-Man for all of your water heater needs! Water heaters are required to produce hot water in your home, for showers, laundry, and dishes. And having the right water heater installed in your home is vital. There are many factors to consider in relation to water heaters. The first factor would be size. If it is too small it might not be able to supply the hot water needs of the household sufficiently. On the other hand, a water heater that is too big for what is needed will create a large energy bill, plus it will be a waste of energy. Another factor to consider is whether to have a water heater with a tank or to go with the new tankless water heaters. If you are considering having a water heater installed in your home, or just need your water heater repaired, consult Rooter-Man, and we can inform you which water heater will be appropriate for your needs.
Two types of water heaters:
1) Traditional water heaters- It is equipped with a heating mechanism either inside the tank or at the bottom. Traditional water heaters make use of the heat rising principle to supply a home with hot water. The secret to a traditional water heater's ability to separate cold incoming water from the heated outgoing water is the theory that heat rises above denser cold water
2) Tankless water heaters- tankless water heaters are becoming more popular with homeowners because they are energy savers and offer convenience. Traditional water heaters have tanks filled with water that are constantly heated by the heating mechanism to maintain its hot temperature. This is how they ensure there is always hot water available when you turn on the hot water. On the other hand, tankless water heaters heat water with a set of coils that become hot when the unit is switched on. The water heats up as it passes through the coil. Because tankless water heaters heat the water instantly on demand they are able to save much more energy than traditional water heaters
Water Jetting Are your drain and sewer pipes clogged or draining slow? Grease, sludge, and other debris are the main causes of residential and commercial drain blockages. Rooter-Man provides affordable water jetting services that can immediately clear this sediment from your drain lines. High-pressure water jetting blasts away scum and other debris build up that has accumulated on the interior of sewer and drainage pipes over the years. This is the best way to get pipes draining again; in fact, it can give you results that are as efficient as brand new pipes.
Looking for water softener installation or repair services? Look no further because Rooter-Man provides full-service water softener installation and repair services. Hard water is water that contains a lot of minerals such as calcium. Some water systems that draw their water from the ground gets too much minerals from the surrounding rocks. Hard water is damaging to plumbing fixtures, drainage pipes, and other household appliances as well. The best way to soften water is by installing a water softener.
Why is there a need for water softeners?
Mineral rich water can cause a lot of problems such as: dissolved minerals such as calcium in hard water forms scales that buildup or accumulate on the insides of water and drainage pipes, coffee makers, tea kettles, and water heaters. Scales are a very poor heat conductor. This will result in an increase in your power bill and may even damage your water heater. Scale buildup lessens the flow of water along the pipes and may eventually cause pipes to become clogged. Hard water also reacts with soaps and detergents to form a yellowish or brownish scum that is difficult to remove from household appliances and fixtures such as dishwashers, washing machines, sinks, and bathtubs.
