The overall service was good. The price was extremely high. The provider dropped the installation price by $175.00 once I said I would pass because I found a better deal. The price was high, but I have no complaints with the quality of the work. I think that the special should be clear that the initial cost is just for an estimate of plumbing services, not $75.00 of plumbing for $25.00. Maybe I'm just dense but it was confusing to me.
Pam J.
Great. Quick repair.
Eliasu K.
Great. All went well.
Mary S.
They were good. I had the same person who came the first time and I didn't have any issues. I had to pay for it out of pocket. He was great. I would request him specifically. He told me how he could cut the price down and was really honest.
Yvette E.
extremely pleased with my service. It was late and i had already called two other places who claimed to be 24 hr service but never got back to me! Luckily Roto-Rooter was there. a technician was here within an hour of calling. Fixed the problem and even explained how to prevent further clogging. Kinda wished I had plumber friends, (who doesn't love a plumber) but this is the next best thing ! overall, great experience. thanks Kam#855

First off, you get what you pay for. I paid $419 to get my storm drain snaked, but after three different flooding incidents and ensuing mold removal, it was well worth it. Jimmy showed up in the morning, on time and he was very professional and friendly. He explained what he thought was going on and how he was going to try to handle it. You couldn't ask for more disclosure. Some places want to make your decision for you, Jimmy was patient and answered all my questions. If I have any other problems, I'll be calling them back.

This is the second time I've called Roto Rooter, last week's call was for my personal residence and to my amazement the manager was able to dispatch someone within the hour. Of course I had already self diagnosed the problem (or so I thought) and anticipated a tremendous expense. 'Min' the RR Plumber, arrived as scheduled, looked at related systems and to my pleasant surprise the problem was much simpler than I feared. He was so calm, ever so thorough, gave the opportunity to test and check over and over, advised on what not to do and what to do to ensure the system operates smoothly. I have encountered some horrible contractors and servicemen lately, but this representative was thoroughly professional in every respect, I will most certainly call Roto Rooter for future plumbing and drain related projects.

6/27/15 We had a great experience with Roto-Rooter today. Michael (Badge 3256) came out within an hour of an emergency call. There were flooding rains and our sump pump went up! This could have been a disaster ending with a flooded basement, but Michael's quick response and quick installation of a new sump pump saved the day. May I also mention this was a Saturday afternoon. We have used Roto-Rooter in the past and will continue to do so. Their price was also reasonable and no extra charge for the emergency weekend call. Thank you Michael and Roto-Rooter!

Our hot water side began leaking from our bath tub spigot. It started as a drip and quickly progressing to a fast, steady stream of water by the end of a weeks time. We called Rotorooter on a Friday around 4pm. By 6:30 pm we had a tech in our house. They told us we would get a phone call within 30 - 45 minutes of the tech arriving. After that phone call, Michael (tech #3256) showed up within the time frame given. He was very pleasant and introduced himself to both me and my husband with a handshake. He immediately went to work in the bathroom, quickly figuring out what was wrong and went to his truck for the parts. He was very open and honest about what was wrong and what he needed to fix. He didn't mind me hanging out in the bathroom with him so I could see how it was done. While he worked, we made pleasant conversation and he explained what he was doing. It wasn't long before he fixed the leaking faucet by replacing the inside pieces. He tested it several times to be sure it was fixed and made sure I was happy. Overall, Michael was such a great tech and was so pleasant to work with. I even checked to make sure that if we needed a plumber again if we could call Rotorooter and request him specifically. It seems like we can... and we would. Great, really fast correction to our issue saving us water, time, and money. Thank you Michael!
Michelle H.
My problem was fixed fast, customer service was top noch, and the plumber sent to my home was very knowledgable. Great service all around.

We called about a clogged exterior pipe on a Saturday morning, and Roto Rooter arrived within an hour. The plumber, Jimmy, was courteous, professional, and identified the problem within minutes. He cleared the block, and re-engineered the drainage pipe so the problem would be less likely to recur. The timely service and quality of the work were excellent.

We have had plumbing issues for a few months now and it finally became clear that our regular plumber couldn't handle them when our drains backed up less than a week after they were last here. So we called Roto Rooter for the first time at 6pm on a Monday night because we knew our problem couldn't wait until morning. Neftali arrived about 90 minutes later and was very polite, knowledgable and clean. He snaked our drains with two different blades and made sure everything was flowing before he left. The next morning someone came back with a camera and concluded that we have problems with our main sewer line and it will likely need to be replaced. Roto Rooter gave us an estimate and we are collecting a few more before we make a decision. But so far they've been great and I would recommend them for drain cleaning.

woke up this morning to a flooded basement, the drain in the basement was backing up.  Called Roto-Rooter and they send over Max (tech 6672).  Max was great!  He was polite, he quickly narrow down the problem to the pump, however istead of just replacing it he managed to fix it and saved me a great deal of money.  That made the whole situation a little better.  Thanks Max!

It's not often I get to highly recommend a contractor or tradesman of any kind in DC, this is another exception.  Thanks to backed-up DC city sewer and water lines, my basement flooded under over one foot of water three times, and my sewage backed up three times.  Very unpleasant, expensive, time consuming, and sad since property was ruined in the basement, etc.Each time, I called Roto-Rooter they were quick to get here, were courteous, and helped us figure out the cause.  Their dispatchers are extremely polite and helpful, and Sam, who came out twice, was polite, patient, and professional.Granted, Roto-Rooter isn't cheap, but on their first visit they fixed a problem created by another unprofessional plumber.  Sam also gave us great advice that countermanded the bad advice of the other plumber and saved us from having yet another flood.Thanks to Sam's persistence and follow through, Roto's camera view of the clog (which they didn't charge us for) proved that the problem was on the city's side.  We were able to get the city to come out and clean their pipes.  Now that the city's clog has been removed, we haven't had any flooding or backups.If you are panicked their staff are kind and friendly and work to really get someone out fast.

I had used Roto-Rooter in the passed and their service is nothing but top notch.

The gentleman who came out was wonderful! I recently became a widow and needed several things looked at. Although I originally called for a clogged drain in my bathtub, he spent 5 hours patiently explaining and fixing leaky faucets and a leaky toliet that mu husband tried to fix and never was able to complete due to his illness! My husband always contacted Roto Rooter and I will continue to do so!
Karen K. | Baltimore

The Roto Rooter teams we met during our recent sewage backup were on time, responsive, professional, neat and thorough. I went through this in another house and did not use Roto Rooter. The difference Roto Rooter made was astounding. They were very careful with soil excavation and replacement.
Megan W. | Baltimore
courteous and careful plumber.
Charles B. | Baltimore
A few hours later after dealing with another plumbing company that could not get my kitchen sink unclogged, I called Roto Rooter. It was already 5pm, and I had my fingers crossed that a technician from Roto Rooter would be able to come out and fix the problem that same day. That's exactly what happened! I was told a Roto Rooter technician could be at my home by 7pm; instead, he was able to get to my house in 45 minutes. The technician's name was Charles. He was very friendly, extremely professional, and explained the problem and everything that he was doing. He fixed the problem in no time at all (unlike the other plumbing company that was at my house for over 2 hours). I am more than pleased with the service I received from Roto Rooter. If I have to contact a plumber again, it will be Roto Rooter, and I hope that Charles is the technician that shows up.
Jimmy Y. | Baltimore

I have been very pleased with Roto Rooter. As you can tell from the records I utilize them all the time. They are all friendly and knowledgeable. Unfortunately, I don't have a google account so I can't try and win the money. But Charles the plumber told me about it. He was very good. I rate him 5 stars as Roto Rooter 5 stars
carol m. | Baltimore
The two guys who came out to fix our burst pipe were outstanding. They were extremely professional, friendly, and stayed out of the way. They did their work quickly and perfectly cleaned the house afterwards (and we have very high standards). Dealing with a frozen pipe can be absolutely awful, but they made it as pleasant as possible.
Anthony S. | Baltimore
I would recommend this company to others. They were very professional--timely, considerate of my time, and informative. Even further, they did not try to sell me a product or service that I did not need. Gratefully, they informed me of the current discounts and coupons which saved me over $300, which is great because who doesn't want to save money!
Michelle C. | Baltimore
My tech, Chris Jones, was fantastic, He diagnosed and fixed the problem in record time and gave me good tips to keep the plumbing here running smoothly, Great guy, great experience.

Once again - and so soon - RotoRooter to the rescue. In a misguided attempt to disconnect the outdoor hose, we broke the spigot off in our hands. Plastic, yes, and the water was turned off, but still... I called RR to see if this was within their purview, and naturally it was and someone would be there with in the next 2 1/2 hours. Well within that time frame, Lal Sanga arrived, assessed the situation, had to go get another part, but had it all fixed neatly and with humor within about an hour. High marks for all! And as much as I enjoy these experiences, I am hoping to not have to call RotoRooter again in the near future.
Susan S B. | Baltimore

We were in a serious bind. After arriving from a week away we came home to a mess. Waste water from the sewer system had flooded part of our basement.

All of this was done in one day-- Amazing! Thank you Roto Rooter!

Please convey my thanks to all the men and women that helped bring success to my sewer line project last week. I'd also like to compliment your following employees that worked on my sewer line. Last week they provided excellent and fast service. Charlie ${esc.hash}13-0737, Drain Cleaner Paul Hyde and Rob, Camera Specialists David Kerr, Plumber Nick Hofman, Backhoe Operator I am highly pleased with the professional and friendly manner in which your technicians serviced my problem. David and Nick did an excellent job with the care they provided for my lawn. Because of their effort, my lawn is back in shape as it was before the construction. Also, I couldn't believe how quickly they completed the job. I now have peace of mind and lack of stress because the sewer line has been replaced and is free of obstructions. I will be recommending Roto-Rooter to my relatives, friends and associates.
Charles M. | Baltimore

Kap was my technician. He was extremely helpful, made appropriate recommendations for services needed, and was very neat. I would utilize Roto Rooter for future plumbing needs.
Patricia M. | Accokeek
Our problems started on Monday, they came, fixed it, and cleaned up the mess. It happened again on Wednesday, so they came, fixed it, and cleaned up the mess. Then they came in with his bigger camera and he started the process of finding out what was causing these backups further down the pipe. We finally found it; rocks in the plumbing! It was such a weird thing, but i'm glad they got it! HUGE thanks to Mark Adams, Jim Rupp, Tony Occorso, and the guys they brought with them for sticking with us and getting everything fixed. Everyone here is glad to have working plumbing again!
Beth S. | Chevy Chase
I must say that I received excellent conversation in reference to the evaluation of my concern, the recommended solution, and the completion of the job. I was not forced, nor pushed to make a decision. All questions were answered in a professional way. I was so pleased, especially since this was the first time with your company. I must say Thong Hung was so pleasant. He showed me the issue, the bad sump pump since I had never seen one, the new one, and other part that I had no ideas of what I was looking at. But after Thong gave me a brief overview, I was well informed. I can not say enough about this young man. He should be commended for his knowledge and skills.
