Winter ground thaw and spring showers are now ushering in the flood season. Roto-Rooter Plumbing & Drain Service warns that heavy and unpredictable thunderstorms can overwhelm combined city sewer systems, causing sewage and storm water to back up into homes like yours, especially those with basements and crawlspaces. Every year homeowners find out the hard way that their sump pumps have stopped working, leaving them with water-damaged keepsakes and expensive damage. Test your sump pump by pouring a large bucket of water right into the pit. If the pump won't operate, call Roto-Rooter right away. Or if there's more than one slow drain in the house, tree roots may be clogging your sewer. Call Roto-Rooter to clear those clogs now. [Roto-Rooter jingle]
