If you sprained your arm, you’d go to a hospital you trust, whose name you recognize. And you’d expect your doctor to use the latest technology to diagnose you and to provide a plan to return you to full health and strength. Well Bob Oates believes you should be able to expect the same from your Seattle plumber. That’s why at Bob Oates Plumbing, Sewer & Rooter we’ve cultivated a name you can trust using the most advanced equipment to assess your plumbing and sewer problems and provide long-term solutions.
Bob Oates is Plumbing and Sewer Repair
Maybe when you were a kid you looked on while one of your parents fixed that sticky flush handle or repaired the leaky kitchen faucet and learned a thing or two. Well it’s no different for Bob Oates, a second-generation sewer cleaner and business owner whose father founded Dial A Sewerman in Queens, New York. At 16 Bob went to work for his dad full-time and by 29 had already had his own business for seven years and was ready to head west for rainy, drain-clogged Seattle. Here in Seattle Bob made a name for himself from the ground up, opening and selling two successful sewer repair companies before founding Bob Oates, Sewer, Rooter & Plumbing in 2006. With more than 45 years of experience, you know Bob Oates is a name you can trust!
