When to Know You Need Rooter Service

As homeowners, we often don’t realize there’s an issue with our plumbing system until it’s too late. That’s why it’s crucial to be on the lookout for the telltale signs that indicate it’s time to call in the experts.

Our Ben’s Plumbing team of skilled rooter plumbing and drain service professionals is equipped to handle a wide range of clogging problems, from persistent drain clogs to main sewer line blockages. With our advanced rooter services, we can quickly identify the root cause of the issue and implement the most effective solution.

Some of the key signs that it’s time to schedule a service include:

Persistent drain clogs

If home remedies aren’t clearing your drains and clogs are frequent, the problem might lie deeper, possibly in the main sewer line.

Multiple Clogged Drains

If more than one drain is clogged, there may be a blockage in the main sewer line. Our advanced rooter services can identify and remove the blockage using the right equipment and techniques.

Sewage backup, icon Ben's Plumbing
Water Backups

Water backing up in major drains like the kitchen sink, bathroom sink, toilet, shower, or bathtub indicates a problem in the main sewer line.

Slow Draining

If water drains slowly or pools in the sink or on the floor, it could be due to a blockage in the main sewer line that needs to be removed.

Unpleasant Odors and Sounds

A foul sewer-like smell or bubbling and gurgling sounds from your drains signal a need for Ben’s Plumbing to inspect your drains for clogging.

Changes in Lawn or Yard

Lush patches of grass in the lawn or backyard may indicate a leak in the main sewer line caused by clogging.

Pest Infestation

Pests and insects around your drains could signal damage to your main sewer line. Call us for an inspection if you notice these signs.

Don’t wait until a water or sewer disaster strikes. If you notice any of these warning signs, call the local rooter services experts at Ben’s Plumbing right away. Our skilled technicians will quickly diagnose the issue and provide the high-quality, long-lasting solution your Seattle home or business needs.

Cost Of Rooters Services

Cost Of Rooters Services

The cost of rooter services can vary depending on several factors, including the severity of the clog, the location of the blockage, and the day and time when the service is requested.

At Ben’s Plumbing, we strive to provide competitively priced and transparent services. Typically, you can expect to pay between $300 to $500 for a rooter service, but the exact cost will depend on your specific situation.

The Basics Of Rooter Service

When it comes to maintaining your water and sewer system, sewer rooter services are often the key to keeping your drains and sewer lines flowing freely. Ben’s Plumbing offers expert drain and rooter services to address many clogging issues, from stubborn tree root invasions to persistent debris buildups.

Our seasoned plumbing services technicians utilize advanced equipment and techniques to tackle even the toughest clogs. While the traditional machines used a washing machine motor and roller skate blades to push cables through underground pipes, the modern plumbing snake has become a more versatile and effective tool for dislodging and removing tree roots and other obstructions.

However, a simple snaking may not be enough in cases of severe clogging. That’s why our comprehensive sewer line cleaning services often include hydro jetting, a high-pressure water technique that can completely restore the free flow of wastewater through your drain and sewer pipes.

Don’t let clogged drains or sewer line issues disrupt your daily life or business operations. Contact the experts at Ben’s Plumbing to schedule your comprehensive rooter plumbing services in Seattle and enjoy the peace of mind that comes with having a properly functioning system.

These guys were just incredible. We had kind of a tricky issue with the plumbing under a toilet. We checked three other plumbers and got quotes ranging from $2700 - $4200. And that was just to cut a lead pipe, replace it with modern materials and mount the toilet on a new ring/grease fitting. All the bids included some strange tinker toy like plumbing routing to fix the problem. One plumber suggested that we cut a hole into a plaster wall to gain access to the pipes! Ben's plumbing came in at $1200 and that included a brand new toilet! No strange rerouting of the plumbing. Just an in place repair. The plumber, Nic Huse, was unbelievably competent and efficient. He told us what he intended to do and just...did it. In about 2.5 hours. No fuss, no muss. If I could give these guys six stars out of five, I would.

Ben is always the guy I want on the job, and for the past couple years he's been quick, responsive, and a professional at the work I've needed him to get done for me. He's the local guy that always has your best interest in mind - for example this last testing work he did, he noticed that whoever performed my last sprinkler testing forgot to turn the system back on! He truly caught & made a life-saving fix for us, which shows his professional knowledge and attention to what's going on around him. Thanks again for the great work and conversation, Ben, see you next year I hope!

Easy, kind, down to earth from start to finish. I felt the costs were transparent and the work was done well and efficiently. We had a water heater issue and they took care of us within 24 hours on the weekend. Text communication was an option and online payment made things easy. Will use Ben’s again.
