Roto Rooter / pricing

1 Houston, TX, United States Review updated:

Roto Rooter is a complete rip-off. Please use a reputable plumber instead.

I called them to fix a clogged drain in my shower. They showed up, snaked the drain and finished the job 15 minutes later. Then they handed me a bill for $227.00!!! When I mentioned that they were only in my home a matter of minutes, they said they charged by job, not by time. Very convenient. They are in the business of snaking drains, they do so in a quarter of an hour and charge an outrageous fee for it. There are PLENTY of people who can perform this simple task for half the price. DO NOT use Roto Rooter. Roto RIP OFF!!!

    lets review your compalint you call a company for fast emergency service to come and clear a drain for you? Ok they send a guy who has medical benifits, has been back round checked, has his own tools and around 6-9 thousand dollars worth of equipment, workmans comp insurance, proerty insurance, radio dispatched, in uniform, and he cleard your drain in a very fast and efficeint manner. And your compalint is he did it to fast? would it be better if someone with a police histoy of theft or violence, with no insurance, no uniform and very little expierence did it for half the price? please do not bad mouth this way just because your budget does not fit.

    douchbags like the ann vry are just people with victim mentality.nothing has ever been or ever will be their one MADE you use roto rooter.poor you, called someone out, they fixed your problem in a timely manner and after that now it's a problem.i suggest that next time you have a drain problem(or any problem for that matter)you look up someone on craigslist and call them.they rarely have insurance, or a license or are bonded or stay in business for very long, but by god they are cheap as [censor] and you being a bottom feeding [censor] will be pleased with the $49 job you get
