Nothing is more frustrating than pulling out the sink stopper, only to discover the water just won’t drain. Oftentimes, fixing this problem isn’t an easy task. It can be difficult to determine the cause of the clog and where exactly it is located within the piping system that spans throughout your home and underground. It could be caused by anything from tree roots to corrosion or debris. That’s why you need a professional plumber in Toronto experienced in using a rooter to solve the problem quickly and efficiently without causing any damage to your plumbing system.
To help you better understand rooter service, how it works and why it’s so important, here is a deeper look at how a rooter works and how it can save your home’s plumbing.
What is a rooter and how does it work?
A rooter is actually just a generic name for a drain cleaning machine. It’s a type of plumbing device that cleans out any clogs or blockages from a drainpipe. Your plumbing company will use the rooter in combination with a few different techniques to restore normal drain function. It starts by running water down the pipes using varying forces of pressure before snaking the rooter through to clear any clogs.
If that doesn’t entirely fix the problem, the plumber will then take portions of the water pipe system apart to remove tree roots and other debris by hand. Your water should easily run down the drain again after this service. Only an experienced plumber in Toronto should perform this task, as it can result in major damage to your pipes if performed incorrectly.
When do I need it?
In the past, rooter service was primarily used to clear away tree roots that had clogged drains—which is where the name “rooter” comes from. The tree roots can grow through the plumbing, where they will then accumulate all the grease, debris and other waste that goes down the drain. This leads to a major clog. The pipe can eventually break due to the extreme pressure, which will require intensive and costly repairs.
Rooter service has since evolved to also work against practically all sewer and drainpipe clogs that can be detrimental to the functioning of your home plumbing. Now, a rooter service can be used to clear away debris clogs from food, hair, soap scum, non-flushable items or objects that were accidentally dropped down the drain.
