Roto-Rooter, North America’s Largest Provider of Plumbing and Drain Repair Services, Suggests That Early Repairs Can Help Homeowners 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 the Chicago region. Unfortunately for area homeowners, the survey revealed that nearly one third of residences in Chicago and the Midwest have slow-running drains.

“While the majority of plumbing repairs in the U.S. fall within the $0-$5,000 range, sometimes seemingly small issues like slow-running drains and running toilets can become expensive problems,” says Paul Abrams, Public Relations Director. “Therefore, we recommend addressing your plumbing issues early on. This should help you avoid unnecessarily high repair costs and inflated water bills later.”

Survey insights and repair recommendations specific to Chicago include:

  • Almost 1 in 10 people in Chicago suffer from low water pressure.
  • Almost a third of homeowners have slow-running drains. Resolving these early is key since clogs can get much worse over time.
  • Nearly 1 in 5 Chicagoans have running toilets in their home. This adds up to 26 gallons of wasted water per toilet per day.
