Helpful hints and plumbing tips

Did you know that doing something as simple as setting the temperature on your hot water heater to 120 degrees Fahrenheit can reduce energy use and eliminate costly electric bills?


Or that pouring a gallon of water down infrequently used drains to the fill trap can help prevent odors from entering your house?

Keep your pipes in working order

If water freezes in your pipes, it will expand and crack the pipe. High places such as attics, garages, and crawl spaces are most susceptible to frozen pipe emergencies. Letting a faucet drip during cold weather is an easy way to prevent pipe freezing.

Seasonal plumbing tips:

  • Spring: Make sure your outside yard drains and gutters are clear of debris

  • Summer: Check pipes throughout your home for condensation (leaks)

  • Fall: Disconnect outside water hoses to prevent your pipes from freezing

  • Winter: Avoid pouring cooking oils down your drains during holiday cooking

"I want to thank Zeb from the Missoula branch. He was a wonderful technician/worker. He knew exactly what the issue was and stood in the sleet all night until he could get us going. Roto rooter is very lucky to have people of his caliber working for them."
