Do I Need a Rooter?
The first thing you may be asking yourself is, “do I need a rooter?” Many people are unsure about what a rooter even is, especially new home owners. To be exact, a rooter is the machine that plumbing experts use to clean drains with. The term has since expanded in common vernacular to represent professional plumbers who utilize rooters as one of their main services, such as Performance Plumbing. The name “rooter” comes from the application of the machine, which revolutionized the plumbing world by specializing in tearing through the tree or shrub roots (hence “rooter”) that can invade pipelines via cracks and clog or damage the pipes. So to answer your question, if you’re got serious, deep blockages in your plumbing system, you need a rooter. If you’re certain these blockages are from tree or shrub roots, you absolutely need a rooter.

How Should I Choose a Rooter?

The most important factors in choosing a rooter are similar to choosing almost any professional service specialist: qualifications, experience, and track records. At Performance Plumbing, we always strive to maintain a high level of standards in these three areas, and we strongly recommend you accept nothing less in a rooter.
