Frozen pipes are a serious problem that requires professional assistance. When this happens, we come in and replace the entire pipeline and help clean up the water that may have flooded as a result. While this is an expensive problem to fix, preventing it takes little effort and resources. Insulation is the key to prevent pipes from freezing. When temperatures drop, water inside pipes starts to freeze. Air pockets get trapped inside and as the pressure increases from the forming ice, the air bursts through the pipe, often time cracking or shattering the area completely. Insulating a pipe with fitted materials or simply putting more insulation between the wall and your pipeline will protect it from fluctuating temperatures.

Clogged toilets hit every house often enough that most people have a toilet plunger right beside it just in case. While a plunger will do the job in most instances, it does not actually removes clinging gunk and grime that is stuck on the walls of a toilet bowl drain. With the use of cleaners and other fluids, these clogs can be stripped away. For serious blockages that even a cleaner can't remove, Roto Rooter professionals can arrive on the scene and snake out the problem. Using a long and flexible metal tool, the snake goes through your system and actually pulls the crud out of the way that caused the block. In order to prevent these serious clogs, only flush toilet paper down your commode. Anything else will put you at risk for serious problems.

One of the most common plumbing problems in Indianapolis and all around the country is clogged drains. Pouring boiling water down your kitchen and bathroom drains helps to clear out the unwanted garbage. Adding a bit of vinegar and baking soda to the mix makes it more potent.
