The Most Common Rooter Emergencies

Most envision their plumbing system to work efficiently without any problems. However, that is not the case in the real world. From drain clearing to clogged toilets, rooter emergencies are common for many homeowners. Fortunately, these problems can be resolved with the help of an experienced plumber or rooter specialist.

Here are the most common rooter emergencies you should be aware of.

Faucets and Toilets are Leaking

Leaks present around plumbing structures are usually the result of clogged drain somewhere within the plumbing system. Rooters are able to efficiently find the clog and clear it, which oftentimes will cause the leak to stop.

Let’s face it, not only is constant dripping annoying, but it can also cause a surge in your water bill. Even more so, leaking can drive mold growth and cause rusting. This issue is common in homes with original or older fixtures.

Clogged Toilets

A clogged toilet is something that nearly everyone has dealt with at some point in their lives. Toilets are the most used item in the majority of households, which is why a clogged toilet is enough to turn your day upside down. Most minor clogs can be resolved by simply using a plunger. If the problem is still unresolved, calling a professional plumber or rooter specialist at Art Rooter, Sewer & Drain Cleaning to assess the situation is your best bet. Clogged toilets are a tell-tale sign that you have a blockage somewhere within your drain pipes.

Signs of a Clogged Toilet

Here are the signs to look out for to determine if you have a clogged toilet:

  • Overflowing
  • High water level that will not go down
  • Refusing to flush

Clogged Sinks and Bathtubs

We’ve seen more drain lines clogged with hair, grease, and all kinds of other debris than we can count. If you’re having consistent issues with the drainage in your sinks or bathtub, there could be a clog somewhere in the sewer system.

Clogged sinks and bathtubs can be just as taxing as clogged toilets. If a clog in a sink or bathtub becomes serious, the water flow could come to a complete halt. Not to mention that clogged sinks can hinder your daily activities like cleaning and cooking. A rooter specialist will find the blockage and clear it away, meaning you’ll be taking a hot bath again, in no time at all!

Backup of Your Sewer System

A sewer system backup is often someone’s worst nightmare, especially because it tends to be messy. Sewage back ups happen in many areas of your home’s plumbing and sewage system by way of the bathtub, toilet, and your kitchen sink. The causes range from a “simple” clog to tree root invasion, where tree roots have infiltrated the pipes and caused a clog or leak. A rooter professional will have the tools needed to properly identify and remove the blockage. This often includes a flexible camera navigating the pipes and high-pressure water jetting to clear the cause of the clog.

There is one more thing to consider when talking about a sewer system backup. Not only are backed-up sewers inconvenient, but they also pose threats to your safety and health.

Signs of a Sewer System Backup

Here are signs that you have a sewer system backup:

  • Unpleasant sewage odors coming from the drains
  • Multiple clogged drains
  • Gurgling toilets
