Toilet Backed Up? Call Roto-Rooter

Did your child put a toy in the toilet and flush it? Is your toilet now backing up and flooding? After you have plunged it and tried the pipe snake, you are at a loss. What do you do? You can try removing the toilet and getting the obstruction out that way. If that doesn't work, you better call the Lowell, MA plumbers at Roto-Rooter. We come on the run. We have skilled, professional, and friendly plumbing technicians available around the clock, every day of the year.

If you find that you constantly have to plunge your toilet in order for it to flush properly, you could have clogs in your pipes or a bad plumbing design. Call the Lowell, MA plumbers at Roto-Rooter and have us diagnose the problem for you. You don’t want to have the toilet get so backed up that you have a serious flood. This is an extremely unpleasant and unsanitary situation to deal with. Not only that, but a flood can damage your floors, ceilings, walls, carpet, and furniture. Replacing these things will cost much more than having it fixed properly when the problem reveals itself.

Clogged water pipes in the kitchen sink are also a big headache. They are usually caused by improper use of the food disposer. Food particles that are not sufficiently ground up combine with grease and hair to wreak havoc on your pipes. You can try using a liquid drain cleaner to free the clog, but remember that using these products too often will weaken your pipes and lead to other more expensive problems.

An enzyme product like Roto-Rooter Pipe Shield used regularly will help with keeping your pipes clean. The enzymes eat away the food and grease and keep the water flowing through. They are easy to use and have very clear instructions on the box.

If you find that you are getting frequent clogs in the kitchen, sit your family down and have a lesson on how to use the food disposer correctly. Scrape plates into the trash. Never put any citrus or potato peelings down the disposer. This will clog it up and it will stop. Then you will have to put your hand down it to remove the debris and push the reset button on the unit. Make sure to run the water into it the entire time the disposer is on and let it get completely clear before you turn it off.
