My tech was Grant #3176 in Chicago. I needed a new disposal installed and I had tried to do it myself but couldn't figure it out. When Grant came by he did a great job in that he found an important piece was not sent with the Garbage Disposal. So I ordered a new piece he came out and installed it in an efficient speedy manner. He was on-time and did a very professional job. I just wish I had entered the Sweepstakes when this was going on. However, wanted to give Grant a "job well-done" commendation. I will use Roto-Rooter again for any plumbing issues in the future.

It was great to have a real professional to do the job. Although I was a little perturbed with the no-show originally , It was worth the wait. The technician did one heck of a job , great job well done. Thanks Jerry Henderson

Andy was at our front door within 40 minutes of my initial phone call. Being Thanksgiving morning, no places were open to get the replacement part my water heater required. Andy disconnected the part and gave it a very thorough cleaning, which worked like a charm and provided us with hot water again. Andy saved the holiday for us. Highly recommended.
Adam L. | Chicago
Ervin was prompt, professional, conscientious and timely. I was very happy that I obtained an appointment on the same day that I called. I was very happy with the services provided and I would recommend to others.
Raul C. | Chicago
Had a toilet clogged. Had to have the service repeated the same day. The first plumber thought my problem was resolved after he snaked the toilet. He told me not to use toilet paper which I thought was asinine. Ask what should I do with the paper. He replied that I should throw it into the garbage. The tree roots, waste, and debris would lead to many visits from Roto. Strange thing, I don't have trees near my house. Once he left and two flushes, the toilet backed up again. The second plumber came in, insisted on putting on shoe booties,after asking the initial prob. he checked two other water flow properties (sink and tub) w/o asking. He also checked the flush box then went to work. That's what I call a diagnoses. Very professional. Then would you believe he took his rag and some cleanser and scrub the bottom of the toilet bowl (with his hand) to make certain things were truly cleaned. A true asset to your company.
Teresa P. | Chicago

I called roto -rooter for a plumbing issue in my basement, my basement had flooded due to a sewerage backup. a plumber that I had used for a couple of years had attempted to fix my problem by rodding out the sewer lines but failed, roto rooter technician Andre #8971 arrived at the residence and had my plumbing issues resolved in less than 30 minutes. Andre was very courteous and knowledgeable about his job. overall a very good job!!

Harold did a fantastic job removing and reparing a difficult toilet to remove. His perseverance paid off and we did not have to get a new toilet.He also did a visual inspection of the ceiling damaged by the leaking toilet and recommended a service to assess the ceiling.Thanks for sending us such a friendly and knowledgeable professional.
SANDRA C. | Chicago
Responded very quickly. Original Roto Rooter employee quickly diagnosed the issue as malfunctioning pumps and personally called another employee who works with pumps. This was after he called dispatch and was told no one could come out same day to fix the pumps. The other employee was to my house in the next hour and the job was finished within an hour. Very pleased and will definitely use Root Rooter in the future.
Kyle S. | Chicago

Grant came out on a Sunday evening after our ejector pump backed up. He replaced the old pump and cleared out the drainage before the water could seep any further into our living area. i thought there was no way we could get anyone out that time of week, let alone someone who could take care of our problem right away. Put our minds at ease.
Larry M. | Chicago

Maria D. | Chicago
Roto-Rooter was quick and efficient. I set up an appointment online in the morning for them to come by the afternoon. They showed up within 45 mins!! Not only that but the service was just as efficient. My only regret is that I wish I hadn't wasted so much of my own time trying to unclog the main sewer line myself. Also a note to everyone out there. Flushable wipes aren't flushable!!

Jacob T. | Chicago
We had a sludge back up which required a bobcat to get to the old pipe which required being cut out and replaced with a new pipe with a sewer clean out on our front lawn. Called on Sunday evening due to the backup in our utility area and the Roto Rooter plumber was at our home by 10:00 am on Monday morning. He couldn't move the sludge since it had been building for a long time. The field manager came with the camera and saw what the problem was. By noon on Monday, we were scheduled for our work to fix the problem on Tuesday. On Tuesday afternoon by 1:00 pm, our plumbing was fixed and fully operational. All permits were pulled by Roto Rooter and the city inspected the work and gave it the okay. Very happy with Roto Rooters fast response with fixing our problem. Also, was not charged for the initial attempt to clean out the sewer pipe since it was not able to be done. It was a big job but had to be done and was completed quickly and efficiently. Thank-you. Would not hesitate to use again.
Susan W. | Chicago

I called Roto Rooter on Wednesday due to a plumbing problem. I placed a call for same day service. I received a call back with the time window that someone would arrive. The young man arrived (Jeff) who was very informative and curious. He checked all of my problem areas then went to work. He advised me of all possible issues. Advised me of the company's guarantee. He was able to clear my line but advised me that he would come back the next day with a camera to run thur the lines to make sure he had completely cleared my line. He did return the next day at the time he had given me. He checked the line again seen addition tree roots and roded my line to clear the roots. That was excellent customer service. Jeff represented his company we.Well done Jeff!!!!!!!!

I needed a new sump pump and ejector pump put in and Pat was more than helpful during the entire process.

Our main waste line backed up into our laundry room on the worst day possible: Sunday. I called a whole bunch of "24/7" plumbers and none of them would come out. I called Roto-Rooter who said they be out in a few hours. Jeff (${esc.hash}3271) showed up at 5:00 and he went right to work. He was able to open the drain and get us back into business. Jeff was professional and he didn't charge us a fortune for a Sunday emergency call. Thank you.
