Highly Recommended!

I recently had a clogged main sewer line and needed help ASAP. I called Ron The Sewer Rat because of the positive reviews I saw, and their representative Ben Pullis was at the house in a few hours. They have it all...good, fast service; professional representatives; and a fair price. I highly recommend them!

Excellent work, friendly, reasonably priced

I called RTSW at 8:30am this morning, and Rod started working by 9:15. He was friendly, knowledgeable, and worked quickly. I will absolutely call these guys again.

The Sewer Rat with Integrity

I thought I had a clogged main drain and called around to different plumbers in my area. Ron the Sewer Rat (one of the better business names around) gave me an over the phone quote (which was maddeningly hard to find anywhere else) and showed up within the hour (faster than anyone else could do).

Ron the Sewer Rat is proud of our competitive pricing. We think you'll appreciate having our fees disclosed to you completely before having us perform work for you.

While no two sewers or drains are alike, it is almost impossible to quote a price that is fair to the consumer and the operator until the job is finished. Unlike some companies, "We are experienced" and do not charge for inexperience. It is often said about this business, "The less you know the more money you make". When we run into a problem, it is a problem, and we work hard to resolve it and expect to be fairly compensated.

For normal sewers
we use 6" knives as Minneapolis - St.Paul some suburbs are 6" from the foundation to the street, and some suburbs are 6" from the curb to the street.

• Cleaning Main Lines for normal sewer--up to 90 ' can be done in about 1 1/2 hours or less. Normal access into pipe that permits a large knife to enter.

• Video Inspections

• High Pressure Jetting

• Pumping

• Drain Lines

• Light plumbing may be included, if necessary you may call in a plumber.

Video Inspections

Includes making a video for you to keep for your records.

We guarantee the work that we have done for you for 90 days, unless we have noted that there is a problem with the line. Please understand that roots can drop off after we have gone. Or they can be missed in the cleaning process or we may not have gone far enough. There may be an additional charge if cable needs to be added. Many level line may clog upon cleaning. As waste scraped loose may lay in the pipe and additional flushing is needed. Also roots can grow big enough, especially in a dry year, to plug the sewer within a year. Or enough debris may accumulate in a level line to clog it.
