It was super easy to book online. They came out the same day. Troy Seaburg, the technician did a great job explaining what exactly was going on and came up with some great solutions. We would definitely use rotor rooter again. Just hope we do not have the opportunity to. 😃 we highly recommend this company.

We've used Roto-Rooter multiple times for different things and are always happy with the prompt and professional service we receive from the initial phone inquiry, to the estimate (if needed), to the service or installation. We also appreciate the text system that lets us know when they are on their way and track them so we know exactly when they'll arrive. Thank you for making it so easy, Roto-Rooter!

Had to call Roto after hours due to a backed up pipe. Josh was super friendly and professional. He evaluated the situation and was in and out in about an hour. When he was done he explained what he found, answered my questions, and recommended some maintenance to avoid the issue in the future. I so appreciate his assistance and expertise.

Josh our tech was able to clear a clog in one of our branch drain lines very quickly. The overall charge was very reasonable and much cheaper than a local plumbing company who couldn’t clear the clog and billed 3 times what I paid Roto for the service (just to look at the pipes and let me know they were clogged). Josh was professional and on-time.

I had an absolute solid clog in my bathtub drain and Alex came and worked at it and tried two different machines until he got it running clearly. The water has never drained this well from that bathtub before. I am very satisfied with his work and the cost.

For weeks we have been smelling septic sewer gas emitting from a bedroom and to other parts of the house. The smell got worse and worse to the point we couldn’t use that part of the home. We hired a septic company, a plumber - multiple visits from both and the smell remained. At first visit Tom and Josh at Roto Rooter quickly diagnosed the problem discovering a detached pipe along with two wasp nests in our vent. Tom fixed the problem, removed the wasp nests and secured the pipes. They were... attentive and fixed all these issues with a smile, which should be the model for contractors in the area. He also unclogged two drains in another bathroom and tolerated our over friendly Golden Retriever. We couldn’t recommend Tom and Josh enough, they are truly top notch!read more

We are having serious ongoing issues with the sewer line. We had a team on site today to dig out the line outside and install an access port. Josh was able to assist with locating the sewer pipe and provided multiple services in very cold windy conditions without complaint. Maintenance staff were very appreciative of his work and his work ethic.

I had an appointment scheduled for a Monday, but said if they could fix it sooner, to get me on the list. They called me on Friday and asked if Greg could come over, which was much appreciated.Greg was extremely professional. He arrived on time, wore a mask (which was appreciated) and quickly found the issue with our toilet that was leaking from the base. He cleaned the area and quickly repaired the issue in less than an hour.The final price was reasonable and very fair. Thank you Greg and... Roto-Rooter for the great, professional service!read more

Greg did a great job changing our wax ring. He also took a shine balanced out the toilet, and put down a bead of calk around the base, which was not there before. Thanks Greg, we will ask for you next time we need your kind of help.Merry Christmas to all.

They quoted me 1-4, they were able to get out sooner and called to make sure that was okay, it was more than okay. Joshua was nice he worked his magic. my toilets no longer gurgles, he crawled under the house inspected everything, he was very fair and upfront with pricing did not ding me for anything I did not need. He even went so far as to check my septic tank to know that it did not need to be pumped, another huge money-saving service.

I am the Project Manager for Diggers Dirt Co and had Tim and Troy out to a project i am working on and needed the septic tank located and marked. They showed up on time and communicated very well the entire time they were on site and made it look like they weren’t even in the home. HIGHLY RECOMMEND taking advantage of their camera services. TOP NOTCH SERVICE and very fair priced. Thanks again Roto Rooter Team

11/10/2021With gnawing concerns about growing kitchen sink gurgling, we called R/R this morning, all the while thinking it would likely be a month or so before receiving service. By mid-afternoon their highly professional and personable service tech was in our driveway. An hour later the partially plugged drain was cleared. And on the cusp of holidays with family coming, we have peace of mind. Thank you Kevin and R/R of Traverse City, MI.

Good Prompt service. I appreciatehow they send a text when on the way along with the name of the tech and a photo. And, as a property manager, I like how they email me when the job is done, along with photos and the invoice. Invoice was also nicely detailed.

They were very professional and did an amazing job. Tim was very thorough and did an excellent job fully explaining the issue we had and how he would remedy it. We had another company come out seven times in the last month and they were not able to fix our clogged sewer line, but Tim and his coworker (sorry didn’t get his name) at Roto-Rooter fixed it in under two hours. To top off great service we received, the cost was lower than the competition. Thank you so much! Recommend using them 100%.

I have a 120 year old farmhouse that had 100 year old plumbing. The office staff are top notch, professional and friendly EVERY time you call. Wes came out to Northport to give me an estimate to replace all of the old galvanized steel pipes and cast iron drain pipes-a huge job!. They were able to fit me in in a timely fashion. Wes and Greg came out and did an absolutely amazing job. I just can't say enough good things about the whole experience. They got a very difficult job done in exactly... the time and price that they estimated. Just like the office staff, professional and friendly. They really know what they're doing and keep you in the loop as they go. I can see why the Google reviews are so positive for Roto Rooter of Traverse City. Another 5 stars for them!read more

We originally called for a leaking pipe. To be honest, I had to have them come back the next day because it was still leaking. That said, we ended up wanting to have several pipes replaced and asked for a quote. It was a lot but it was a big job (pipes run through the crawl space). They did a fantastic job and the final cost was a third less than what was quoted. On time, very courteous and friendly from speaking with Brandy originally to Greg, our technician, and his partner. Great group of... people. Thank you all!read more

Matt was phenomenal. My dog even liked him and he doesn’t like ANY male. So if he can pass the dog test he’s A-Okay in my book. He was professional, informative, on time and did a great job!

I am very satisfied with services. We had them connect a second bathroom in our house & we bought the house not knowing anything about what needed to be done with it. The previous owners hadn’t connected anything and after a few Rotor-Rooter visits with different cameras & gear & people, they finally got it figured out & made a game plan. From there it was good, any problems that came up they had all the gear with them to fix it & keep moving forward. I’m so used to having services where I’m... told they don’t have the part or it’ll cost extra or they’ll have to come back a different time that it was refreshing that they just do everything! These guys all know their stuff! They had a great team working, but the only names I know are Greg & Wes & both of those guys were super friendly & so helpful. This was the FOURTH plumbing service we had out to try to diagnose the problem. Every one before Roto-Rooter completely gave up after one visit, with most telling us “this is a young man’s job” or “I didn’t wear the right clothes to crawl around & get dirty” never to be heard from again. Seriously.As a 9 month pregnant mom, I appreciate all their hard work to get this done before baby comes!read more

Tom Did an excellent job when he came to pump out our tank. As new home owners (4years in) we knew we were ready for a pump out but had no idea how to check the tank or where it was located. He took the time to fill me in on everything. Where the tank was located, how to check the level, and even how to maintain a healthy tank. No sales just pure good information. 10/10 would use again and recommend.

My bathroom flooded after doing a load of laundry in my washer and the drains somehow were all clogged. So I called and made an appt. They said a technician would be here the following day between 1pm & 4pm (they offered an after hours service but I decided to just wait) and about 10 minutes before 1pm I received a call that they were on their way. I also received a text with a link that showed an exact ETA which was cool. The technician was very friendly and professional. He told me what work... he did and didn't leave any kind of mess behind! I'm very happy with my experience and will gladly call them in the future if needed! Thanks!read more

I had the main water line from my house break, limiting my water use and generally a bad time. Called another company in town first, and got blown off. I should have called Roto Rooter first. Matt was the first person I talked to and he was cool, easy to work with, and very informative. Steffan came out first to do the repair, and got started immediately. Matt and his team were careful about gas lines, power lines and dug the pipes out & replaced them pretty quick. All members of the team... involved today showed me things that were being replaced, and gave me an overall great idea as to what I had going on prior. I'll definitely call them first from now on. Beers well earned. 10/5 stars.read more

I don't think I've ever left a google review, but felt compelled to do so in this case. The basement of our new house flooded late Thursday night with 1" of standing water after doing laundry and the sump pump ran continuously after. We contacted another local company Friday morning who indicated that we were "first on the after hours list, could be any time before or after 5, we'll call you," sadly, we were ghosted after canceling all plans/waiting by the phone all day, it got late, and the... issue was stable enough for the night. After reading the Roto reviews, we gave them a shot. My call was answered promptly, within 40 minutes Alex was at my house (on an on call holiday), and in probably less than an hour a new/the right sump pump was installed (previous owners installed a pump not made to grind solids/waste so it was constantly clogging), alongside all sorts of helpful tips and education. Alex was paced, personable, professional, and definitely knows his stuff. We'll absolutely be return customers for future plumbing needs and upcoming septic tank work. If you can, ask for Alex!read more

Approximately 2 years ago I had 3 high end toilets installed at my Inn. Matt was AMAZNG to work with! So much so, I made certain to retain his cell number. Last week a guest contacted me regarding an issue with one of these toilets. I contacted Matt via his cell phone. Though Matt had moved to another position within the company, he oversaw my issue through to completion! In these days when most companies seem to focus only upon making the sale, it was beyond refreshing to experience an... employee do the reverse - that being, going above and beyond to make this experience as good as possible for me - the customer! Matt - you're the best and the company is lucky to have such a dedicated, responsible, customer focused employee such as yourself!! Thanks again!!read more
