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
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, so that the disruption to people and property are minimal.
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
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 involved in food service and food waste handling know very well that grease traps must be regularly cleaned to keep things running without odor or back-up. Animal fats and vegetable oils in particular can block the kitchen plumbing system before they reach sanitary sewer lines. Roto-Rooter can be relied upon to professionally vacuum, pump and haul waste from septic tanks, grease traps, catch basins and other liquid waste receptacles, such as car wash pumps. We provide safe and legal waste disposal, and we make sure to put our environment first.
Backflow Testing and Repair
What is backflow? It is the reverse flow of dirty water through clean water lines. This dirty water can be contaminated with feces, pesticides, chemicals, fertilizer or other materials. Most commercial properties must have their backflow meters tested and certified every year as required by law. Roto-Rooter technicians are trained to perform annual backflow testing and certification, repairs, and installation of all types of prevention devices. We handle all of the necessary paperwork relating to your annual inspection and will notify you when your next annual backflow testing is due so you can keep your property in good standing with the local water authority. A Roto-Rooter backflow expert can also check your plumbing system to ensure that your property is equipped with the proper backflow device or devices.
