Cleaning out drains is not rocket science. Anyone can do it with the correct equipment.
I came home to find an unpleasant flood in the basement. Called the first number which happened to be rotor rooter. While I thought they would be pricey, I didn't think it would be highway robbery. For literally ten minutes of actual work, I paid 453.00!!!!. The technician spent a lot of time pressuring me to get them to clean up the mess and indicated that the insurance would pick up the tab. Perhaps this is the reason for the exorbitant price. On principal, will never use any rotor rooter service.!!!!!
