Owning a home has both its ups and downs. You have something that is yours that you take pride in, but it also comes with a lot of expenses, some of which you may not think of often. As a homeowner, you want to keep your home in good working order, and you want to maintain it in the most cost-effective ways possible.
One such expense that can really put a dent in your wallet is plumbing issues. You may not think much about your drains or plumbing until you notice slow drainage or a clog. However, it is very important to take care of your drains routinely. One way to ensure that your plumbing will be in tip-top shape is to get regular rooter service. That’s where we come in.
We at Rhino Rooter have been performing rooter service in the Ogden area and throughout northern Utah for nearly 20 years. We understand that the average homeowner doesn’t fully-understand the concept of rooter service, so allow us to explain.
Basically, rooter service involves cleaning your septic system and/or drains using specific tools designed to find the root cause of clogs, leaks, and other various plumbing issues. It involves inserting sharp and powerful blades that cut through tree roots and other encroachments that obstruct pipes, causing blockages. A long, snake-like tool with a blade affixed to the end is inserted to clear the blockage, and then water is run through the pipes to make sure the blockage has been removed.
Rooter service is far more inexpensive than the alternative of ignoring your plumbing to the point of flooding and property damage.
Tree roots are often the culprit in a lot of plumbing issues. Blockages caused by tree roots cause pressure that leads to the eventual cracking of pipes or, worse, breaking your main sewer line. Rooter service cuts through blockages and clears your lines, preventing much more serious issues.
Tree roots aren’t the only reason for routine rooter service. Clogged drains are typically caused by debris like food scraps, soap scum, or hair. Larger clogs in sewer lines can cause drainage issues throughout your home, such as backed up showers, sinks, and tubs, especially when you flush your toilets or run your washing machine. Rooter service would also be needed in the unfortunate event that a non-flushable item ends up causing a buildup of debris in your sewer line.
The necessity for this service isn't a one-size-fits-all scenario; it varies based on factors like your plumbing system's condition and how intensively it's used. While there isn't a strict rule, considering a few guidelines can help you decide how often to schedule this vital maintenance:
Remember, rooter service isn't just a reactive measure; it's also a proactive way to ensure the longevity and efficiency of your plumbing system.
