Plumbing Solutions From Rotorooter

Staying at home, you would soon realize that there are many common problems that can spring up from your kitchen, toilet and main water pipe system and attending to those problems can be very costly at times.  In my case, my number one problem in the kitchen is the slow draining sink.  Being the most used part of the kitchen, it is but natural that the strainer can collect a lot of dirt build up like hair, grease, and other food particles that were thrown carelessly. To get the drain flowing smoothly again, we have to unclog the drain pipe and have debris build up completely removed. For simple drain problems, we can use some handy tools like zip it or we can make use of the natural method of pouring some baking soda over the pop up, then follow up by pouring some vinegar.  This has proven to be effective for minor slow draining sink problems.  However, there are major plumbing problems that cannot be resolved within our means and for that, we maybe required to seek a professional help from Rotorooter.  

I had an experience getting the services of some plumbers within the neighborhood but I also get stuck with such problems being solved at once but will keep on recurring after quite sometime. If this is the case, chances are, the problem was not properly addressed or the plumber did not actually see the root cause of the problem, and just came up with a temporary solution. This scenario can be very stressful, as you will just double up your expenses and waste some of your valuable time due to disrupted work schedules. It is for this reason that we have to be very careful in choosing the contractors who will work on our plumbing problems at home.  

What do we have to look for in hiring plumbing contractors?
  • We have to make sure that the plumbing contractor has a proven track record.  A contractor who had been staying long enough in the business has more expertise and could assure you of more quality services.
  • Plumbing services are not limited to getting minor leaks and drain problems done.  Therefore, it is important that your contractor is offering extensive services and covers even the most complicated plumbing problem.
  • A good and reliable contractor should have only hired the expert plumbing technicians with years of experience and had undergone required trainings to do the job.
  • Your contractor should have the proper licenses to operate the business.
  • Choose a responsible contractor who does not only work for a solution but is also mindful of the environment taking into consideration the safety of their clients.
  • Choose a contractor who offers reasonably priced services.  Expertise does not necessarily come with a hefty price tag.  
A good plumbing contractor should not only be providing work, but services with a high degree of professionalism, keeping up with the agreed terms in the contracts assigned to them.  They should be able to diagnose the root cause of the problem and provide a solution that would promise a long lasting result. This way, we can be assured that our problem was professionally handled and that we can rely on the same contractor for our future plumbing related problems.



  1. Actually, it is hard to find a plumber in our place.

  2. All the plumbing are (thankfully) done by the maintenance team in our building. When something's wrong, I just dial it in and they'll be checking our unit within the day. :)

  3. Problems in plumbing can be such a chore! And it is so hard to find people who are experts. Napansin mo ba? Before, all the handymen are so reliable and they take pride in their work.

  4. Good and skilled plumbers are hard to find, especially here in PHL. Why? because there is no KNOWN degree that kinda puts PLUMBING into a much greater level.

  5. Thank you for the tips... Finding good plumbers is hard work and I like your check list. ;-)

  6. Thanks for the tips! Finding a reliable plumber is really difficult. Some plumbers don't do their jobs that well so you'd be in constant need of them. :(
