Over time, sink drains can run more slowly and eventually clog as greases, soaps, fats, and detergents build up inside pipes. If you are dealing with a clogged sink drain, a Roto-Rooter service technician will use a machine to cut through the clog, remove the debris, and restore your clogged sink drain to full functionality. As a leader in drain and sewer cleaning services, you can rely on Roto-Rooter's experience to solve your kitchen drain issues.


A clogged bathtub drain can quickly become a huge problem in a busy household. Soap, hair, pet fur, and even bath toys can clog bathtub drains. With the proper plunger or drain snake, it's possible to unclog a bathtub drain on your own. If you can't dislodge the clog yourself, Roto-Rooter technicians carry all the tools of the trade to get your clogged bathtub drain back in service again.


Toilets can be overwhelmed with toilet paper or non-flushable materials. Regardless of the challenge, Roto-Rooter technicians have all the equipment to address clogged bathroom drains and can provide expert sewer and drain cleaning services.

Sewer Line Cleaning

Need help locating, dethawing, or unclogging a sewer line? Let the professionals at Roto-Rooter in Eau Claire help.

If several drains in your house or business are slow to drain, it's a sign that your sewer line may need to be cleaned or repaired. Using fiber optic cameras to inspect the pipes, our professionals can pinpoint the exact cause and provide the best solution.

Sewer Line Cleaning for Older Homes

Older homes often have clay tile, plastic, concrete, and cast-iron pipes that cannot tolerate hydrojetting. In this case, our experienced technicians use a sewer cleaning machine equipped with long spinning cables with blades to cut away any tree roots and debris -- leaving your pipes razor-clean so your sewer will drain freely again.

Sewer Line Cleaning for Commercial, Industrial, and Municipal

For the toughest clogs, especially in commercial and municipal sewers, we use high-pressure water jetting equipment to blast through most obstacles and scrub away the grease and debris -- leaving the pipe as clean as the day it was installed.

Roto-Rooter's sewer cleaning equipment is the best available, and it's highly effective at clearing clogs and restoring flow to just about any sewer pipe. But as good as it is, even a professional cleaning is only a temporary solution if a sewer pipe has holes or other damage.

Sewers are designed to be a sealed system. As long as roots can get into a pipe, they will continue to cause damage. As they grow thicker, they gradually force joints apart and can even break the line itself. This slow but powerful force can move pipes much like surface roots can push up sidewalks. Holes and leaking pipe joints allow water and sewage to pour out of the sewer and erode the soil. As the soil washes away, the pipeline loses structural support, becomes misaligned, and clogs. Whatever problem you are having with your sewer or drain, our Roto-Rooter experts are ready to help.

Hydro Jetting

Hydrojet sewer cleaning relies on the power of pressurized water and nothing more. In fact, many industries use pressurized water to cut different materials. Sewer water jet machines pressurize water at about 4,000 psi, while it takes at least 20,000 psi to cut steel.

Sewer Line Cleaning

The water pressure pushes the blockage toward the city's main line and removes all traces of debris. From grease and limescale to hair and leaves, it can remove the toughest and most stubborn debris — even tree roots!

Sewer Line Dethawing

Hydrojetting is the most effective system for thawing frozen septic drain lines during Wisconsin's harsh winters. Water jetting will also help avoid future clogs due to debris buildup on the inside of the drain line, which can be extremely difficult to remove by any other means. We use hot, high-pressure water to break through the ice and force it down the line. A frozen sewer line needs immediate attention; the best course of action is to call us today so we can defrost it with water jetting.
