The word "plumber" dates from the Roman Empire. The Latin for lead is plumbum. Roman roofs used lead in conduits and drain pipes and some were also covered with lead, lead was also used for piping and for making baths. In medieval times anyone who worked with lead was referred to as a plumber as can be seen from an extract of workmen fixing a roof in Westminster Palace and were referred to as plumbers "To Gilbert de Westminster, plumber, working about the roof of the pantry of the little hall, covering it with lead, and about various defects in the roof of the little hall". Thus a person with expertise in working with lead was first known as a Plumbarius which was later shortened to plumber.
The term “rooter service” comes from the problem this service is meant to address: tree root invasions blocking sewer or plumbing lines. While the original design for the rooter machine is no longer used, its conception has led to several effective drain-cleaning tools and techniques still in use today. Modern rooter service is now a generic term that refers to any method of drain cleaning or pipe repair your Vero Beach plumbing service may use to address stubborn sewer line and drainpipe clogs that affect the function of your plumbing.
Charlie is a rockstar! His motto is, "Rooter service, call the best. Flush the rest!" And he really is the best. You would think rooter service would be straight forward, but that is not my experience. I have called services that: * Don't show up * Made a complete mess and dragged it around the house * Tell me I don't need rooter service, but need a $10k+ re-pipe Not Charlie. He answered the phone, showed up when he said he would, did a good job, took pride in his work, cleaned up after himself, and charged me what he said he would. I will never ever bother with another rooter service. Now if Charlie's would just expand his practice to include other plumbing services...please.
I got quotes from the top 3 rated plumber/sewer service companies here. Charlie's quote wasn't just the best by far, but he was also the only person to communicate properly and to show up exactly on time. His whole crew takes pride in their work and they stayed well into the night rinsing off the curb and cleaning up the mess. Absolutely brilliant!
