Honest, Reliable, Expert Plumbing Professionals
When a plumbing emergency happens, you need fast, reliable service. Rooter Guard understands that a plumbing emergency can stop a business in its tracks or make a household non-functional. Whether your main line is broken, your garbage disposal is on the fritz, or your toilet is overflowing, we’ll fix it quickly and professionally.
Below is a summary of the plumbing services we provide.
General Rooter Services
Drain blockages are common and can happen because of hair and soap buildup or from the buildup of grease, sand, calcium, or debris. Drain clogs usually start long before you notice a problem. The pros at Rooter Guard clear blockages and provide routine maintenance to help keep your plumbing lines clear and clean—the key to preventing more severe problems down the line like leaky pipes and water damage from backups.
Sewer Line & Yard Drain Repairs/Replacement
Clogged sewer lines can lead to backups inside your home or commercial building. Rooter Guard uses the most sophisticated technology available to clear sewer lines to prevent future problems. We also install drains for pools and yard drains (such as French drains) to keep your property protected during the rainy season. Our experienced team knows how to locate drains and make the proper connections, taking the proper precautions to avoid power and sewer lines that may run through your property
Water & Gas Line Repairs
Even small leaks in water lines can cause major damage to walls, flooring, and other materials; it can also lead to mold—a potentially serious health hazard—as well as wood rot and decay. Gas leaks can occur anywhere in the line, whether from deterioration over time or from damage or dislocation after an earthquake or another catastrophic event.
Fixing gas leaks is critical, not only to address gas exposure and the nasty rotten egg smell a leaking line produces but also to prevent dangerous explosions. The professionals at Rooter Guard are trained to repair gas leaks, replace existing lines, and install new lines.
Pipe-lining is a cost-efficient way to restore a pipe damaged from corrosion, leaks, or cracks from tree roots without having to excavate and replace the pipe. It essentially involves installing a new pipe within an existing pipe. Rooter Guard uses advanced pipe-lining techniques that require no excavation. We insert lining materials through the existing pipe for a simpler, code-compliant, non-invasive solution that can last 50 years or more.
Water Heater Installation/Repair/Replacement
Sediment buildup is common in water heaters and can dramatically reduce the amount of hot water a unit can hold. If you’ve noticed a reduction in hot water, it may be time to replace your hot water heater. Other common issues include water leaking from the top or bottom of the heater, pilot light problems (gas water heaters), and low hot water pressure. Whatever the problem, Rooter Guard will identify it and provide a cost-effective solution. We can also help with tankless water heater repair and installation of tankless units.
A toilet is a relatively simple fixture, yet the “porcelain throne” can develop a surprising number of issues, from clogs to problems flushing, to leaky tanks, to constant running. Whether you’re having an issue with a single toilet at home or you need brand new toilets installed for your office building, Rooter Guard can help.
If a leaky faucet is keeping you up at night or you want to modernize an old double-handle shower to a single-handle valve, Rooter Guard can help. Faucet and fixture problems are not always obvious until there are signs of damage; if you notice cabinet damage under a kitchen sink or drywall stains in the ceiling below a bathroom, you may have a leaky fixture. Don’t ignore these signs—call a plumber as soon as possible.
Garbage Disposal Installation/Repair/Replacement
Garbage disposals can take a beating, especially if they’re used to grind things like large pieces of food, eggshells, or coffee grounds. Garbage disposals can become jammed or clogged, allowing food particles to rot, which can lead to foul odors. Clogs from grease buildup and leaks from connecting plumbing lines are also common. Count on us for expert garbage disposal repairs and replacement.
Slab Leak Repairs
A slab leak happens when a pipe that runs below the concrete foundation of a home or another building starts to leak. It’s a serious problem that requires immediate attention. Signs of a slab leak include a sudden spike in your water bill, damp carpet or warped flooring, mold or mildew (visible mold or the smell of mold), a decrease in water pressure, or an area of the floor that is suddenly hot (from a leaky hot water line).
Rooter Guard will fix a slab leak before an underground pipe breaks completely, which can cause major damage to your foundation as well as mold problems.
Copper plumbing is the industry gold standard for its dependability and long lifespan. Many older homes have galvanized plumbing, which is prone to corrosion and rust buildup. If you notice signs of a plumbing problem, like slow drains, foul odors, decreased water pressure, bubbling sounds from drains, and running toilets, you may need a partial or whole-house repipe. You’re in good hands with the expert team at Rooter Guard.
Rooter Guard Uses Advanced Technologies
We use the following technologies to help detect leaks and visualize damage to plumbing lines.
- Electronic Leak and Sewer Locating: We utilize low-voltage and high-voltage non-invasive leak detection to find water and sewer lines. This allows us to determine the precise location of plumbing lines, rather than just digging blindly. With this technology, we’re able to find lines below ground before we start looking for leaks or start any renovation work, such as building a patio or pool.
- Video Camera Inspection: Video cameras can detect leaks, blockages, pressure points, and weaknesses—without digging. This technology helps us see the exact location of a problem, so we know exactly where to go to fix it.
- High-Tech Hydrojetting: Hydrojetting uses high-pressure streams of water (up to 3,500 psi) to effectively clear objects, rust, and mineral deposits from a clogged drain, pipe, or sewer line. Using this method is sometimes necessary to clear out debris and objects prior to lining pipes. When possible, we will suggest hydro-jetting in order to avoid laying or snaking new pipe. Whatever the case, we have the expertise and equipment to get the job done right.
