    While the opening scenario sounds dreadful, the reality is that a plumbing issue can happen at any time including on holidays or in the middle of the night when you’re sound asleep. This is why emergency plumbing is life saver!

    We were charged $712.21 for clearing a bathroom sink. We were promised the bill would be sent to us immediately last Wednesday. I asked again on Thursday for the bill. I asked on Friday for the bill and again today. They aren’t even getting me a bill. Don’t be skewed by Rotor Rooter!
