North America’s Largest Provider of Plumbing and Drain Repair Services Recommends Timely Repairs to Seattle Homes to Avoid Flushing Money Down the Toilet

Roto-Rooter, North America’s largest provider of plumbing and drain repair services, recently announced their Thought Leader Survey results for Seattle. Unfortunately, these results aren’t good news for homeowners in the region. Residences in Seattle and the West are more likely than other areas of the country to experience major plumbing and drainage repairs valued at $20,000 or more.

“A majority of plumbing repairs in the U.S. fall within the $0-$5,000 range. However, the West seems to disproportionately suffer from super expensive ($20,000+) plumbing issues,” says Paul Abrams, Public Relations Director. “We generally recommend addressing your plumbing problems early on to avoid inflated water bills and high repair costs later.”

Fortunately, it’s not all bad news for Seattle residents. Homes in the West are less likely to suffer from water pressure problems. Only 5.21% of Westerners responded that their water pressure was too low or too high, compared to an average of 10.7% elsewhere in the U.S. Also, Westerners are the most likely to avoid DIY plumbing projects and just hire a plumber from the get-go.

Survey insights and repair recommendations specific to Seattle include:

  • Homeowners in Seattle and the western states are more likely than any other part of the U.S. to suffer from plumbing problems valued at $20,000 or more. Roto-Rooter experts recommend that you get your plumbing problems fixed early before they get worse!
  • 1 in 10 Seattleans have dripping faucets. Did you know that one leaky faucet might be costing you more than 3,000 gallons of wasted water per year?
  • Almost a third of homeowners in Seattle have slow-running drains. You may want to resolve these early since clogs can get much worse over time.
