Lots of people have leaky faucets, but most people don’t realize that their faucets could be dripping up to 3,000 gallons of wasted water each year. The teams at Roto-Rooter locations throughout the county are brimming with this type of information, absorbed over more than 75 years in business.
The company began in 1935 thanks to the ingenuity of Samuel Blanc, who patched together his first sewer-cleaning machine from a washing-machine motor and roller-skate wheels. Today, armed with much more advanced technologies, Roto-Rooter’s technicians tackle a full range of residential and commercial plumbing and drain services. The technicians are licensed, insured, and available 24/7 in case of unforeseen emergencies, such as extracting a 1,500-pound tree root from an underground pipe. And though the company dates back decades, it’s still forward thinking—its ROTOGreen initiative includes the installation of fixtures that meet or exceed EPA standards.
