Sewers and Drains

Kitchen drains – bathroom sink, shower and toilet drains – floor drains – downspout drains – main sewer lines… Roto-Rooter’s professional service crews can handle them all. Drains of any kind will get backed up over time and begin to run slower as residue builds up on the inner walls of the pipes. A Roto-Rooter plumber / service technician will use Roto-Rooter’s specialized plumbing tools to cut through the clog and remove all debris.

How to turn off the water supply if your faucet breaks

If your faucet breaks, don’t panic! Look beneath the sink for the water shut-off valves. You’ll see a cold water shut-off valve and a hot water shut-off valve. They’re usually chrome with a small oval valve handle. Turn the handles clockwise until the water stops. If it won’t budge, use a pair of pliers to slowly turn the knob back and forth until the faucet loosens. If the valve spins freely and won’t turn the inner seat, tighten the set screw on the face and try again. Once the valve is moving, turn off the water and call Roto-Rooter.
