Plumbing Tip of the Week:
AGHHH! That sound the garbage disposal makes  without water running through it - for many it's like nails on a chalkboard. Running water while running the garbage disposal is kind of a no-brainer- but did you know you, experts encourage you to run COLD water at least 15 seconds before turning on the disposal and 15 seconds after? This simple act helps ease the job of the disposal and help work the waste through the system quicker.
For all your plumbing questions and concerns call your Local Rooter Man team, 
Scott & Laura Thompson,   owners of 
Rooter Man Savannah! 
Auto Tip of the Week:   
With regular maintenance modern vehicles can see into 100k miles before any mechanical issues arise. However, be aware of warning signs the engine can give you that should not be ignored.
Any type of squealing sound when starting the car could be an indicator something is wrong with pulleys, the drive belt, or alternator. A "knocking" sound or any sounds that just don't sound "right" should be acted on immediately and taken to a mechanic.
For all your 
Car Care Needs!
