Reviews and Testimonials


"This company quickly sent out an experienced and knowledgeable technician to assess my new home’s main sewer line. He gave me peace of mind that we didn’t have any issues and further explained everything he saw through the camera. He was able to answer all of our questions and the company’s receipt/invoice included notes from his visit, which I will hold onto for future reference."

"John and Mario came out today from Rooter Alert Plumbing, Sewer and Drain. They ran a camera to inspect the pipes and look for roots or obstructions. They found the obstruction area and defined the exact location to me so I know where the problem area is. I have had other plumbers but none that had the best technology in their equipment and impressive trucks for hydro jetting which is a better option than just standard snake cleaning. They showed me foot by foot throughout the complete sewer line what I was seeing. The best part is there honestly. This is the first company that didn’t try to upsell on every possible repair under the moon. They told me I didn’t have to have the work done immediately where most are high pressure salesman making outrageous bids. If you want a honest diagnosis these are the guys I trust and have very reasonable prices. I am Very happy to of found them!!!"

"I had the incredible good fortune to find Rooter Alert on Angie’s List. From the moment I spoke with Georgina to schedule, I was impressed with their professionalism and diligence to get things done. The first visit was for a concern of what appeared to be mold forming along a side board in a bathroom. I assumed it was a leak, it was not. They did not charge me, stated it was not a plumbing issue, but I needed a mold specialist. Shortly thereafter, we had some clogged drains and I called for service.  They were to arrive on Friday of last week, at  a designated time. They called and advised me that their crew was “stuck on a monster job,” and would be late. I was unable to have them come later, and instead, they arrived Sunday morning and did a masterful job. Things happen, I would want them to take more time if my call required it. NO problem!I have dealt with a lot of plumbing issues in the past few years, and despite having brand new piping throughout my home, things happen. Now that I have Rooter Alert, I do not worry about a thing. They are magnificent and their pricing is more than fair for the fine work they do. Thank you Rooter Alert!"

"I had a really positive experience with this company. A cracked pipe that required a smoke test (which many other companies do not perform) was necessary to find out the source of the sewer gas leak coming from my kitchen sink. I called on Friday and was scheduled for the soonest time available, which was on Sunday. The plumber arrived and got to work immediately. He was able to locate the crack in the pipe and I was given an estimate as well as a day/time that it could be fixed. The same plumber was dispatched to fix the pipe Tuesday morning. So far, I have no sewer gas smell and as of right now the problem is fixed. I appreciate a company that recognizes a problem and is quick to schedule and fix the problem."

"Quick scheduling for voucher bought on Angie’s List to inspect and jet sewer connection from house to main in street; rescheduled when they had an earlier opening. Guys arrived on time, were professional, clean, efficient, and thorough; they explained what they found and what options I have to deal with it. A+ experience."
