My experience with Roto-Rotor was Top Notch! My day started out with a delivery of a new dishwasher from Home Depot! Yay! I'd waited almost 2 weeks and paid for installation.

The installation professionals from Home Depot said they couldn't install it because the drain went through the floor instead of the cabinet (it didn't but it did go through the back of the cabinet where you couldn't see it and through another cabinet). For whatever, reason this was a no deal with Home Depot. Trying to get a Handyman Service was going to take up to 2 weeks at Christmas time--I'd already waited 2 weeks to get a replacement dishwasher!!

I called Roto Rotor and they said they'd have someone out within 24 hours. They called back in an hour and said that Marin could be there in less than 30 minutes!

Marin patched up a bad installation from the last person who had done the job, and stayed until he got the new dishwasher working!!! He was a complete professional and guided me through the process of the dishwasher replacement. The job did not go smoothly but it went well because he was willing to stay and see it through and make sure that the dishwasher was working.

I cannot say that roto rotor is the cheap solution to a dishwasher installation problem, but the job was done, it wasn't pushed to the back of the waiting list, and it was worked out even when some problems came along from the previous installation. I feel comfortable now knowing that something isn't going to cause this dishwasher to malfunction like the one recently replaced. The job was done right.

Jesse came to our house after we had called another local company who could not unclog our drain. The other company was here for an hour and a half with no success...Jesse had our clog fixed within 20 minutes! He got here fast and fixed our problem fast!

Root-root-rooting for the home team is

Root-root-rooting for the home team is easy when you use Roto-Rooter. My repairman was on time, courteous to a fault, efficient, and neat. He cleaned up after himself and after he was done, asked if there were any other minor problems he could help me with. He proceeded to do so at no extra charge. Hats off to Arash and to Roto-Rooter for unparalleled service.

Roto-Rooter Plumbers 3/19/12

I called Roto-Rooter Plumbers of Seattle this morning at 7:30am and asked if I could schedule someone to come clear our shower drain. I was expecting the standard wait of at least 3 days and a window of 4 hours of waiting. A live person answered and told me she could have someone at our house with in the hour! It was so great to be able to have someone come right away. When the plumber, Giovanni arrived he was clean, friendly and very kind to my 4 year old who was very curious and wanted to know what he was doing. She got to watch and he told her everything he was doing. It was a very great experience as far as needing a plumber goes.

Elvis was a wonderful plumber!

Elvis came out to my house yesterday and helped me find the best price, best options, and best parts for my home AND my budget. I couldn't ask for a better plumber, and if I did, Elvis would still be the one to show up. Amazing work, would definitely recommend these gentlemen.

I called Roto-Rooter Plumber in Seattle and Florin their service man was at my home with in a couple hours AND no charge for the initial evaluation...Our shower was not draining and we were finally tired of standing in dirty water! The problem was identified & resolved that visit...No extra charge for travel or same day service AND the 6 month guarantee & 50$ off coupon was a deal-maker for our family. You would never know that Florin was there: he was tidy & careful with our master bathroom tile ect. He was in & out swiftly and we would highly recommend Roto-Rooters Plumbers for service

Great job Florin!

My house drain was clogged from shower and garbage disposal.

Florin did a great job and cleaned everything up after the work. He also gave me some drain maintenance tips that should help to avert another snaking.

Rooter-rooter was easy to deal with and are 7X24 shop.

They came out in an hour.

No tears and a $40 coupon to boot.

Same Day Service

I called Roto-Rooter because I had a slow drain at 11:30AM and they had a technician here before 2PM. Joe not only figured out that I had a slow drain, but he fixed the flapper in my toilet which was contributing to higher water bills. Now that is what I call full service!
Thank you so much, Roto-Rooter for being so helpful!
I would be appy to recommend you to my friends and neighbors.

I have had a slow drain in my downstairs bathtub for over 6 years. I have used lots of Drano and even rented a drain snake, but I was never able to get the drain to clear. I decided to try Roto-Rooter. The Seattle Plumber spent some time trying to resolve the slow drain. He was about to give up when finally he was successful. He was able to pop out two small toys from the drain pipe with the snake. Amazing! Thank you!

George â?? One of Roto-Rooterâ??s Most Dependable Employees

George – One of Roto-Rooter’s Most Dependable Employees

“You’re not going to want to see this,” my wife said to me. At 11:00 AM a few days ago on October 20, 2011, while in the midst of a hectic day, everything went on hold when we surveyed a flood in our laundry room. After I cleaned up the mess, I discovered the cause was a backed-up sewage line.

As I have done many times in the past, I called Roto-Rooter and asked if George was available. I was told that I could have the next plumber available and someone would come by within an hour. I said, no, I wanted George. When told that she didn’t have George’s schedule, I asked her to track him down. After being on hold for several minutes, I was relieved when she said George was indeed available and would be at my house within half an hour.

When George arrived, I felt like I was seeing an old friend again. As I look back on my records with Roto-Rooter, I note George has cleaned out the roots and debris seven previous times at my house dating back to August 2001.

As he came into the house and walked over to the clean-out that he knows ever so well, his first words were jokingly, “Still didn’t put that clean-out outside the house where I have suggested in previous years.” I told George that I could rent his equipment at a tool rental shop or even I could have purchased his electric snake several times over, but then I would miss seeing him.

He smiled and went straight to work. Minutes later he found the problem and came to me with a fistful of tree roots. He suggested that, because there were a lot of roots throughout the line, it was time to think about replacing the old sewer line with another line that could be installed without digging up my lawn. At his suggestion, I put on my calendar a note to call after the winter for an in-line inspection with Roto-Rooter’s remote television camera to identify the bad joints and broken sections of pipe in my 70-year-old sewer line. Once the problems are identified, I will ask Roto-Rooter to install a new line in the damaged sections.

Once again, I was very pleased with George’s work, and he left with a smile. See you next spring, George.

The main line backed up Saturday night, washing machine emptied into the showers, toilets too, water was everywhere - family was coming over for Easter brunch! Called the Roto-Rooter number for the Seattle area after 10:00 pm and they had someone out first thing Easter morning - the plumber asked a couple of great questions, quickly identified the reason for the blockage, cleared the lines and had it all wrapped up before family arrived!! Great service...and the nicest gentleman!! Thank you...

Our kitchen sink was plugged. We called our seattle area roto-rooter and they sent a plumber out promptly. They sent Giovanni. He was very courteous and efficient. He was also very diligent about keeping everything clean as he went. I would recommend Giovanni and roto-rooter.

Roto-Rooter Plumbers (service date: 3/15/11)

Last week, we put cream of broccoli soup down the garbage disposal ...and found it in the tub. Our pipes were backed up. We sank an entire bottle of Liquid Plumber but even by morning, nothing had moved. My dad said we'd probably had a root grow into our pipe from the street and told us to call Roto Rooter.

At 8:30am the next morning we called. The Roto Rooter plumber dispatcher in Seattle said they would be here right away and were in our driveway half an hour later. (That's what you want on a weekday when you've got one dysfunctional shower and you've got to get to work!)

My husband showed him the problem, and their service technician, Florin Regus, took a look at all fixtures and quickly determined what the problem was (not a root after all) and worked quickly to get the pipes flowing (somewhere under the house between the kitchen and the bathroom).

One thing I especially appreciated is how careful he was about the mess; he put slippers on over his shoes and even worked over a tarp.

Because Florin was so efficient, my husband was at work in time for his morning meeting and our pipes have been great since. (And with a 6 month guarantee on the work, we don't feel like we've got to tiptoe when we go near our kitchen sink!)

We'd recommend their service to anyone unfortunate enough to have similar problems.

My basement laundry room drain backed up and left a puddle on the floor. It was quite disgusting as I was told that there was food that came from the garbage disposal in the puddle also. I called and made an appointment for Monday morning between eight and ten for them to send someone out to hlep me. They called at 7:30 to ask if it would be too early for someone to be there at 8:15. That was super for me. Giovanni was here by 8:15 and ready to give me an estimate. I know things have gone up in price, but I was rather shocked to find out how much. Giovanni was very polite and sympathetic to my plight. I told him to please fix it and I would be glad to pay as It was needed. He worked for an hour and got the drain unplugged and also snaked a drain in the basement bath tub. He told me that there was a six month guarantee and also gave me some drain cleaner and told me how to use it. I am thankful to have the problem fixed and thankful that Giovanni was so nice and helpful.

The response was quick, the service professional, and the workers were courteous. If I had any complaint, it would be that I paid over $300 and the repair only took them about 20 minutes. plumber. Seattle.
