The service was great. They arrived on time and complete the task in a great amount of time. The overall price is a bit high but the problem has been completely fix. The pipes are working great. Haven't had anymore problems.

Roto-Rooters Plumbers - May 31, 2011

The service was good in that the technician arrived on time according to the appointment schedule. He was very nice, and he did a very good job. Our only complaint was that the initial hourly rate is very expensive and we were charged for an hour and a half for something that definitely did not take that long and could probably have been completed in an hour.

Roto-Rooter Plumbers May 21, 2011

Last Saturday was chosen to put in our 3 new faucets. After purchasing all the ""needed"" materials, my husband went to work early in the afternoon. After a couple hours, it was determined that he was unable to complete the project. We have older plumbing and everything was corroded and rusted shut.
I called Roto Rooter because I have had experiences in the past where I have used them and been very satisfied.
I called, got immediate attetion and within an hour heard from the plumber who would be coming to the house.

He arrived, put on blue mitts on the feet and after explaining the situation to him, he went right to work.
It was a difficult job, but we feel that the Roto-Rooter plumber did an excellent job.

Again, we have been very well satisfied with Roto-Rooter service!

I live in Minneapolis and I needed a plumber. Roto-Rooter was able to come to our house the same day. Not only did the plumber take care of our issue, he was kind enough to give some advice on how to maintain our plumbing system. We were so relieved that Roto-Rooter was there to help us. Thank you Roto-Rooter. Brian

Pretty Expensive

On May 11, Roto-Rooter analyzed and repaired a leaking laundry tub faucet at my residence in Minneapolis. The hot side was leaking so much that water pressure could not be maintained throughout the house and enough water was being wasted that it was necessary to use the main valve to turn water off for the whole house. The service was performed about 9 am. The washer on the hot side was bad and the stem cup that holds the washer was partially broken. Prices quoted were $200 to fix the faucet and $500 to replace it. My son’s fiancé who is living in the house after consulting with my wife decided to have the faucet repaired. (My son is out of country and I was on a field trip with students and could not be reached.) The technician replace both the hot and cold washers and the faucet does not now leak.

If $200 sounds reasonable to replace two washers then Roto-Rooter should be fine. Otherwise I suggest looking for a more reasonably priced provider.

A note on the repair. The technician noted that the faucet should probably be replaced due to the broken stem cup. Another way to fix this is to use a washer retainer. This can replace the broken cup and makes a fairly good repair. I have had several old faucets repaired in this manner and have found that the washers last about as long as usual for this type of faucet. I was disappointed that for $200 I did not get someone more knowledgeable about plumbing.


I contacted Roto-Rooter and received the following response.

Mr. Wozniak, My name is Dave and I am the plumbing department manager at Roto-Rooter Services Co. in Minneapolis. I was contacted to resolve a concern of service provided on 5/11/11 at 3515 Washburn Ave No. My plumber offered options of repairing or replacing the laundry faucet. Repair was the choice and after reviewing the invoice I find the cost and the positive result of repair to be a fair charge for the service agreed upon. The faucet is functional and not leaking according to your e-mail message.

Great Service, Reasonable Pricing

I found Roto-Rooter very helpful, efficient, and cost effective. They do not charge just to come out - they come out for free and will give you an estimate before proceeding with the work which I found very helpful. Other plumbers I called charged at least $80 just to come out and give you an estimate.
Our technician was very nice, quick to clear the clogged drain, and offered great advice.
I would definitely call them again, and would recommend them as a great option for a plumber in Minneapolis.

This is the second time we've had to call Roto-Rooter; it's an old house. In this episode, the kitchen sink (disposal and dishwasher drain as well) backed up. Snaking, plunging, pulling out the pipe didn't work. RR replaced the pipes, discovering another previously unnoticed break in the process, and cleared the drain.

Went downstairs to find sewage coming up my laundry drain! Called Roto-Rooter Plumbers today, Marchy 18th, 2011 around 10:00am and they were very nice, I said I needed to move some things so they could get to drain, they were here in no time, Terry the plumber was very friendly. He explained the tree roots and grease in my drains, and sold me a product of theirs and advised me to have this checked again in three years. I've lived here 20 years so I guess I was lucky, this time! Good Job Terry!

We discovered a backed up drain at 6, called roto rooter (after our failed attempts) at 7:30 and had the drain fixed by 9!

Daniel (#48-1240) was knowledgeable, respectful, and efficient.

I will ALWAYS call Roto Rooter!

Roto-Rooter Plumbers, 2/20/11

Today I had plumber Nigel #1754 come by to snake out the bathroom sink. He was professional and really wanted to make sure nothing went wrong. He was personable as well. Living here in Minneapolis you're not always sure you can trust a big company to do work in your home but this went very well.

Roto-Rooter Plumbers - 2/18/11. Very good service. I had a technician, Anthony, at my door in Minneapolis within 40 minutes. He cleaned out the floor drain in the basement within the quoted timeframe. He was professional and courteous. It was a relief to get this done quickly, and on such short notice.

We were very surprised and thrilled to have someone come out on a Sunday afternoon and no extra charge. We were told that it would be about 2 hours and were kept up to date on the time of arrival. Our technician was very knowledgeable and recommended several things which was very helpful. We were pleased with our service.

Our tub drain was clogged, called Roto-Rooter to do a clean-out, but our house is 90 years old and this is the original tub and plumbing. He could not open the clean-out since the once hexagon top was now stripped to smooth round, making it impossible to use a wrench. This necessitated replacing the entire drain pipe, whichrequired a plumber. (If he had been able to run the line it's likely that the pipe would have sprung a leak, since it was rusty and already had a pin-point leak).
There was not charge. A plumber was here within an hour. I know it was a difficult job, requiring cutting extra holes in the wall to access the pipes and drain, and waiting for us to move shelves and other objects in the downstairs bathroom. He was pleasant, never complaining, and no profanity! (We really appreciate that!!) I would give the service and the finished result 5 stars, but the price, however, was high. I don't know how it compares to other companies. I really appreciated the $40 coupon I got online.

Awesome service, great price for emergency after hours!!!

I needed to call an emergency plumber to fix my clogged drain and because Roto Rooter was the only name I am familiar, I gave them a call. The young woman who scheduled the service was extremely friendly and explained when tech would arrive. She called back in less time than intially estimated to state Terry was on his way. Terry arrived shortly thereafter and was very friendly, courteous, efficient, and did an excellent job fixing the clog. He also suggested I purchase a product from Roto Rooter to prevent further clogs. Hopefully I will never need to call a plumber again in the future, but if I do, I will only ever use Roto Rooter because of the friendly service and excellent results. It is very difficult to find a service that I find the service even at adequate levels, but Roto Rooter goes above and beyond. Keep up the good work! I will recommend to everyone! You have an excellent employee with Terry!!!! The man deserves a big raise!!!!

Called Roto-Rooter Minneapolis to fix my clogged kitchen drain. Terry was courteous and fixed the clog and for being an after hours emergency, the price was reasonable. I will, without a doubt, be using Roto-Rooter Minneapolis any time I need a plumber, regardless of the time of day. Great, fast service, it's hard to come by now days, but Roto-Rooter is one of the best.

Mark the plumber showed up very quickly and confirmed my mother had indeed a very clogged basement drain. Being the house is 60 years old it required a bit more than the typical purging that a Minneapolis home would require. He efficiently cleared the clogged pipe and now we can wash clothes to our hearts content...minus the smell and backup.

Plumbing in an emergency

Plumber Minneapolis.

Had a main drain blockage and Roto-Rooter was my first call. The appointment windows are only 2 hours, which is nice and the staff is so very nice. Service was quick and professional and the technician was extremely customer oriented. And he seemed to like the dog a lot. It was only a few hours between my initial call and having the work completed.

1-18-2011, I called Roto-Rooter Plumbers cause the main drain was backing up. Terry called ahead of time and was on time. Once he arrived he did an estimate, which was very reasonable.
