This post in sponsored by Roto-Rooter, but all enthusiasm is my own.
I live in an old farmhouse, and I have kids. You better believe we deal with some clogs. One time I found straw, leaves, and grass in my bathtub after the kids washed off something inside instead of at the hose outside. I also have insanely thick hair, and it constantly clogs the drain. Compounding the problem, we have a septic system, so I have to use products that are safe for septic systems. When Roto-Rooter asked me to be a brand ambassador for them this year, I knew it would be a great fit for my lifestyle and my home. This is a product that we use, so it was natural to share it with my readers.
You probably think of a plumbing service when you think of Roto-Rooter, but they have new home products. Not every plumbing situation needs a plumber, and you can save a lot of money by trying to unclog your sinks or bathtubs by yourself. If Roto-Rooter clog remover, doesn't remove the clog, Roto-Rooter will take 10% off of your service call if you show the repairman your empty bottle.
We rarely get the clogs that completely block the drain. Oh no. We get those slow clogs, where the sink fills up while you're using it but empties within a few minutes. These clogs are the worst in my experiences because most drain cleaners just slide past the clog, which means you are literally dumping your money down the drain. Roto-Rooter has a gel formula with the most active ingredients versus other brands and the right viscosity to move to the source of the clog and break it up, so it works better on our clogged drains.
Roto-Rooter Clog Removers remove grease, soap scum, and hair, so you can use them in the bathroom and in the kitchen. They are safe for septic systems too, which is really important to us. Roto-Rooter also has a septic treatment, so be sure to look for that if you have a septic system.
Since I'm a brand ambassador for Roto-Rooter for 2016, I'll be giving you some tips on some basic plumbing fixes and routine maintenance that you can do yourself, so keep checking back to learn more.
