Roto-Rooter Expert History

When Samuel Blanc invented and patented the first Roto-Rooter machine, he did more than revolutionize pipe cleaning, he established an organization that set the standards for high quality service. The Roto-Rooter Service continues to follow his high standards. They continue providing that service throughout Broome and Tioga Counties in New York and the northern region of Susquehanna County, PA.

In 1968, Arlene and Clare Price established the Roto-Rooter

Sewer Service business in Broome and Tioga Counties. The first firm to specialize in just sewer and drain cleaning in this region, the company grew quickly with same-day service and high service standards. From a modest one-truck operation, the company

now operates several service trucks as well as excavating equipment to correct any

drainage problems.

They at Roto-Rooter strive to provide an efficient and professional service for all customers. Along with making the inside of your pipes “razor clean,” they will make every effort to keep the work site clean as well.
