A clogged sink can be a minor inconvenience, but sometimes it’s more than that. When multiple appliances in your home are slow to drain, that could be indicative of a larger problem with your main line. Luckily, My Buddy the Plumber is your plumbing company in Provo that can get your plumbing system back on track with rooter service.
Rooter service is used for clogs that are located in main lines of sewage systems. That’s why multiple slow-draining appliances are often a sign that you need rooter service — if the problem was located in a more localized pipe, only one or two drains would be slow or stopped. When you call us for rooter service, we come equipped to remove even the toughest clogs to get your plumbing system back on track.
The term “rooter service” comes from the invention of the rooter. This tool, which was revolutionary to the plumbing industry, was created to cut through and remove tree roots that can grow into cracks in water main lines of a water system. Although these lines are carrying away what we consider to be waste, this organic matter is highly nutritious for tree roots. As a result, even the tiniest cracks in your pipes can lead to root growth that can clog your pipes and require you to hire professional rooter service.
Since the invention of rooters, technology has developed to make them more efficient. These professional-grade, mechanized drain snakes can remove root growth and other major clogs with their long cables and rotating blades at the end. Our expert plumbers will send the tool into the problem area of the pipe to dislodge and remove any clogs and get your water system back up and running.
A clog in your main line is not something that you should let fall to the wayside. Left unaddressed, clogs in major pipes can cause serious damage that is expensive to fix. Not only that, but you may begin to experience backed up toilets, flooded basements, and other plumbing issues. These side effects of clogged pipes can cause damage to your space and belongings, present electrical hazards from water and circuits interacting, and even cause harmful bacteria to enter your home from sewage backup. Not only that, but you may be unable to use the showers, toilets, and sinks in your space, creating significant disruptions to your day-to-day life. If you find that multiple drains in your home or business are slow or stopped, or you notice a distinctive sewage smell on your property, call My Buddy the Plumber about rooter service.
