    What Is Rooter Service?

    DMany people have heard of a rooter service but not many people know what it actually is. Originally, a rooter service involved clearing away invasive roots that had grown into cracked pipes and begun to clog them, hence the name “rooter”. However, as plumbing systems and machines have gotten more sophisticated, a rooter service is now just a generic name for any kind of drain clearing service or device.

    A typical rooter service will involve a machine that attempts to clear a clogged drain through sending water at a range of different pressures through the pipe. Rooter machines are also able to be snaked through curved pipes to get closer to the source of the blockage to extract it.


    How Often Should I Get A Rooter Service?

    Most people would only think of calling for a rooter service once they were already experiencing a complete blockage of a pipe or drain. Whilst rooter services can certainly be used to clear these clogs, they are also extremely useful as a preventative plumbing practice. Undertaking regular plumbing cleaning and maintenance can prevent plumbing emergencies from arising, saving you time and money. A professional rooter service is an excellent addition to any care plan, as it keeps your drains and pipes working optimally.

    How often you should get a rooter service will depend on your system usage and how many people are in the home. Generally, a rooter service every 18 to 24 months is considered ideal to maximise the preventative plumbing health benefits.
