8 Things You Should Know About Roto-Rooter

1. Roto-Rooter was founded as a company in 1935. The company was built around the invention of The Roto-Rooter Machine. The Roto-Rooter Machine is the world’s first electric sewer cleaning machine. That allows removing roots and clogs from underground sewer pipes without having to dig up the pipes. Can you even imagine what things would be like if the Roto-Rooter Machine hadn’t been invented?!

2. In 1955 the Roto-Rooter Machine patent expired! That brought on copycats trying to take advantage of the situation. Even with the snafu, they have continued to remain the best-known and largest drain and sewer service in the world.

3. They are the only plumbing repair and drain services company with a truly national presence, serving almost every U.S. community with a population of at least 20,000 people. They have 24/7 service available and in emergency situations – that is great!

4. They employ almost 4,000 people at company-owned locations. Approximately, 3,000 of these employees are service technicians. The entire Roto-Rooter system, including independent franchise operations, employs about 7,000 people in North America. Plus, they have also expanded their offerings internationally with master franchise operations in Japan, Philippines, and Indonesia/Singapore.

5. They are the largest provider of plumbing repair and sewer/ drain cleaning services in the U.S. and Canada with more than 600 locations from coast-to-coast. In addition to offering their obvious services, they can also do installations on certain products! They have a full line of products that you can use for DIY situations as well!

6. Their annual sales exceed $700 million (combined company-owned and franchise locations).

7. In 2010, they introduced the ROTOGreen plumbing program to promote water conservation by bringing the latest water-saving plumbing parts and fixtures to its customers.

8. Approximately two-thirds of service is for residential customers, one-third for commercial customers.
