Great job! Fast and thorough! Didn’t leave until the problem was fixed. I had a slightly complicated issue where I needed a tough cartridge replaced and an extension added to fit. It wasn’t a problem for Hector though who was able to fix it in minimal time.

I had Roto rooter out 2 days in a row. Finally they sent Mark #2840. He finally unclogged my kitchen pipes which were supposibly not possible according to the other technician that was out twice (one that I will review again). Thank God for Mark. I was getting really frustrated with the company. Thanks to Mark my faith in the company was restored and I even bought a bottle of pipe shield for my pipes. Thank you Roto rooter for correcting your first technicians screw up for no additional cost

So happy with Roto-Rooter! I had a sink clog that I tried all day to fix. It was a Sunday and I called Roto-Rooter because I was at a loss. They were at my door within 2 hours of calling on Sunday night and in a blizzard. The tech that came to the house was great and very thorough. Even though it was late on a Sunday, he had a smile on his face and he took his time. I would highly recommend Roto-Rooter if you need a company to clear your drain. Very satisfied!

Eddie #1617 WAS FRIKKIN AWESOME! Not only was he courteous, knowledgeable and respectful but bbn it was obvious he was completely aware of what the plumbing situation was and what it would entail but he kept me looped in the entire 90 minutes of what he was experiencing and how he was addressing our plumbing dilemma. He fixed all with 100% satisfaction and cleaned up after and reviewed his invoice and 6 month warranty from top to bottom. Eddie comes highly recommended in my humble opinion as does Rotorooter! 5 STARS Eddie is one of your best!

This is about the man with the camera who was summoned for a PDP assessment and meeting with a city inspector.
He ran the camera all the way from my main drain to the city of Chicago “tap” in the street( Kenneth Ave.)
All the while city inspector George had a keen eye on the precedings. The inspector agreed with the previous findings. He marked off the street with yellow spray for eventual water dept. repair.

This was the best experience I have had with a plumber in my life. Heto 365T gave prompt service, professional expertise, and recommendations that were honest and ended up saving me some money. Will definitely be using again!

Came to my house and charged me $450 for less than an hour of work. They didnt communicate the price until the plumber was at the house. They fixed the problem, but it was completely overpriced for the work that was performed.

Mark was very polite he introduce his self to me and my husband, usually when a service person come in the house they come in and address the man. Mark covered his shoes and did not track the mud on my floor, and I thanked him, he went in the basement and gave my husband a estimated and when he came back upstairs he stop and explained all that needed to be done and the price. 5 star from me
Thank you Mark tech 2840

I was very impressed with the service I received by tech #2004. Very knowledgeable and professional, he took the time to really explain things to me as well as answer all the questions that I had. Other plumbers rushed in and out and didn't leave me with any knowledge the way tech #2004.

Excellent service was provided by Tech #2840. He was very knowledgeable and provided prompt service. He also suggested Roto-Rooter's Pipe Shield as a good product to help maintain health pipes and drains.

I recently called Roto-Rooter for a unknown plumbing issue and my home. They able to schedule an appointment for the very next day, which I was very impressed by the flexibility. The technician, Reise #1877 that came to the house called me prior to any work being started. He fully explained the issues to me and what might be causing the problem and lastly gave me a time frame of when he would be finished. Needless to say I was impressed overall with the company and also with Reise. Thank you, and I would highly recommend Roto-Rooter.
