What should I do during a plumbing emergency?

It’s urgent to get your family or employees to safety and call RooterWorks during the event of a plumbing emergency. If possible, shut off the main water valve to prevent any further damage from occurring. Keep in mind that scheduling routine maintenance services with our experienced team can help prevent emergencies and costly water damage.

How soon should I call if I detect a leak?

With over 50 years of experience, you can trust us when we say that you should call us as soon as you spot a leak. No matter how small they are, leaks are never a sign of anything good, and never just go away. The sooner you have it repaired, the more beneficial it will be for you and your wallet.

How do I know if I need to replace my pipes?

When it comes to pipe damage, there isn’t much that you can do since a large percentage of your system can’t be seen without special equipment. Luckily, our plumbers in Bloomington have all of the equipment available to determine the condition of your pipes.

Why is my water bill so high?

A spike in your water bill is often a sign that you have a leak somewhere in your plumbing system. Check for leaks or discoloration in your piping and reach out to us. Whether you’re able to detect the leak or not, we can perform a detailed plumbing inspection for you. Sometimes, multiple leaks are causes for sudden water bill increases.

What do I do if my garbage disposal is jammed?

Most garbage disposals have a reset button on the bottom of the unit. If you can find it, press it and try the garbage disposal again. If that doesn’t work, contact us. We have special tools that can quickly repair your unit.

Why should I hire a plumber?

Let’s face it – nobody ever wants to have to hire a plumber. While many homeowners take pride in performing simple DIY plumbing fixes themselves to save money, there are several advantages of leaving this type of work to a licensed professional. At RooterWorks, our team carries state-of-the-art equipment and stays up-to-date with the latest in plumbing and building codes, allowing us to address even the most complicated plumbing and sewer line issues with ease. With professional training and detailed diagnostics, we have the knowledge and skills to quickly and effectively handle your plumbing needs with a far smaller risk of error than if you were to do the work yourself. Likewise, all of our work is backed by a 100% satisfaction guarantee, allowing you to choose us with confidence knowing that the job will be done correctly.

How often should I have my plumbing inspected?

Like any other appliance in your home or business, your plumbing is subject to wear and tear over time and will need to be serviced periodically. To ensure your plumbing is operating correctly and to prevent major issues from developing, it is recommended you schedule a plumbing inspection and maintenance service once every year. A qualified plumber will check major appliances such as your water heater, main water line, toilets, pipes, and drains for signs of corrosion, leaks, and blockages.

My toilet is clogged – what do I do?

If your toilet is backing up, take the lid off the tank quickly and close the flapper to prevent overflow. If you have a plunger, stick it in the bowl and form a seal around the exit hole, push downward and upward several times, and flush again. If the clog does not go down, close the flapper again and repeat the process. If this does not work, or if flushing the toilet causes water to back up in sinks or showers, it is time to call a plumber.

Why is my drain clogged?

Bathroom drains often become clogged when dirt, dead skin, and hair binds to soap scum inside your drain pipes, impeding water flow. Clogs in kitchen drains are often caused by the accumulation of kitchen grease, soap, and undissolved food particles. It is recommended you dispose of these items in the garbage rather than pouring them down the sink to prevent clogs. Should you encounter a particularly stubborn clog that cannot be cleared through conventional means, our team can provide effective drain cleaning and repair services.
