Plumbing Tip of the Week:
Nothing like a great  summer  cookout with fresh peeled fruits and  veggies!! Potato peels, watermelon rinds & corn cobs are not great to put down your disposal. The actual fruit and veggies are fine to go in the disposal but you can cause damage to your working disposal. Another thing is to be cautious of is dirty grease! Never dispose of it down the drain. For all your plumbing questions and concerns call your Local Rooter Man team, 912-236-3333!

Meet Scott & Laura Thompson, owners of 
Rooter Man Savannah! 

Rooter Man is always to the rescue when a plumbing problem comes up!! 
Give them a call!!

Do not jump on your mattress unless you are eager to replace it before its time! Although it is FUN, it breaks down each layer much quicker when you or children jump on the bed. Also, if you have a traditional box spring, it will give out faster!
