Unlike kitchen or bathroom plumbing, basement and utility room plumbing can be a bit trickier for homeowners. If pipes start leaking or there’s a flood in your basement, you may be unsure of what to do next to resolve the issue – especially if it’s in the middle of the night.
If you find yourself in this position, you can schedule emergency service with Roto-Rooter and our experts will be able to address your plumbing and drain needs right away.
In the meantime, there are some common plumbing issues you can familiarize yourself with and be on the lookout for in your basement or utility room:
A sump pump can oftentimes be referred to as a rooter pump and it’s important to understand what purpose they serve in your home.
A sump pump, or rooter pump, is usually found in home with finished basements to help avoid flooding.
If there is a possibility that flooding could occur in your basement or your crawl space, the sump pump will collect the water and redirect it away from your home.
Dirt and debris often get caught in floor drains found in basements and garages, causing clogs. Roto-Rooter plumbing and drain professionals can inspect floor drain traps, clear clogs and clean drains.
Utility room plumbing
Water heaters are one of the most important plumbing fixtures in any home, providing hot water to your kitchen and bathroom faucets, as well as your washing machines. If water is pooling under the machine, it’s most likely being caused by a leak that you should repair right away. Our expert plumbers can find the issue and make emergency repairs at any time of the day or night. If you need a replacement, talk to the Roto-Rooter professional about the water heater options that are best for you, and he or she will be happy to install your new machine.
Washing machines need repairs for various reasons, from leaks to damaged pipes, drains or flooding. Our Roto-Rooter experts can diagnose the problem with your washing machine and get your laundry room back to full strength.
