What’s their story?
Roto-Rooter was founded in 1935 by Samuel Blanc, who created a sewer cleaning machine using a Maytag motor, roller skate wheels, and cable to turn the blades. The machine, named the “Roto-Rooter” by Sam’s wife Lettie, used special blades or “knives” to cut tree roots out of sewer lines without digging. In 1980, the Blanc family sold Roto-Rooter to Chemed Corporation, and the company moved its headquarters to Cincinnati. Today, Roto-Rooter is the largest provider of plumbing, drain cleaning, and water cleanup services in North America. It operates businesses in over 100 company-owned branches and independent contractor territories and approximately 400 independent franchise operations, serving around 90% of the population of the US and parts of Canada. Roto-Rooter has master independent franchise operations in several countries worldwide, including Japan, the Philippines, Mexico, the United Kingdom, Hong Kong/China, and Indonesia/Singapore.

What are their clients saying about them?
“The plumber who did the work did an excellent job and was also very polite. I plan to ask for him, if he is available next time I have work done. The last plumber who came by was also good. I will call them again when I am ready for more plumbing repairs in my old house. I have several things that need to be fixed.” -Satisfied Client (Google review)
“We’ve had Chris out twice for separate issues and both times did a great job! He was friendly and efficient. He explained things so we can understand. I feel the charges are fair and will definitely use roto-rooter again!” -Satisfied Client (Google review)
“Called to get some information about installing a whole house water filter system. Was told they would have someone out the same day to do an inspection, which was a pleasant surprise. Both guys who showed up were knowledgeable and friendly. Would recommend.” -Satisfied Client (Google review)
