The Top Plumber in Charlottesville, VA, and Nearby Areas
Daniel Devlin founded Speedy-Rooter Plumbing of Charlottesville, Virginia in 1996.
As a family-owned and operated business serving central Virginia, Speedy-Rooter earned the reputation as a plumbing repair company that handles the problem on the first call.
Danny first became involved in the plumbing industry in 1984 in a small college town in southern California. He quickly immersed himself in residential and commercial repair plumbing, as well as remodel and construction plumbing.
Danny’s first job was for a company known as “the company who would solve the problem that no one else could solve.” Management insisted that the plumbers think through the plumbing problems they encountered first and focus on getting the jobs done right. If they didn’t, they would go back to the job on their own time to take care of the customer’s concerns.
That early experience in Danny’s plumbing career colored his philosophy of service and repair plumbing. In 1988, a 600-bed hospital in Santa Barbara hired Danny to lead their crew of plumbers. There he honed his skills as a problem solver and gained a reputation for exemplary skills.
Danny believes it is important that he be intimately involved with the day-to-day activities of his plumbers. He knows that a talented team leads to satisfied customers and Speedy Rooter Plumbing’s overall success.
Danny insists that everyone who works for him is committed to excellence. His well-trained, clean, and courteous staff is committed to making every plumbing call a positive experience for the customer. His wife, Therese, works as the office manager and is an active participant in the day to day operations from the office.

At Speedy Rooter Plumbing, we offer commercial and residential water lines, sewer and drain line repairs. Your water line can develop failures or leakages in less than 10 years of service. Here at Speedy Rooter Plumbing, we have the required expertise and tools to repair pipes ranging from ½ inch to 10 inches in diameter. We can complete the plumbing repairs without interrupting your daily routine or damaging the repair site.
We also guarantee to repair your broken drain line and sewer pipe without destroying your landscaping. The repairs are completed in a fraction of the regular time without the need to dig and uproot old pipes. We are the only full-service plumbing company in central Virginia that can install hundreds of feet of pipe without the need to dig trenches.
At Speedy Rooter Plumbing, we use the Terralift procedure, which is environmentally safe and durable, for drain cleaning and sewer cleaning in Charlottesville, VA, and nearby areas. Terralift is an ideal technique to restore failed and saturated drain fields. The procedure uses a long narrow probe with a pneumatic hammer to penetrate the soil. The probe forces air into the soil at a constant rate to help in breaking the biomass on the walls of the trenches.
We restore drain fields using this four-step process.
- Pump The Septic Tank - This relieves the drain field and gives it a chance to start drying up. It also allows us to assess the condition of the tank and gives us access to the baffles, which we can use to locate the distribution box. It also allows you to start running water again if the system was backing up.
- Clean The Insides Of The Drain Lines With A High Pressure Water Jet - This physically removes the solids from the drain pipes and opens any clogged holes in the perforated drain pipe.
- Re-Perc The Drain Field With a Terralift - This opens the ground back up and allows it to begin absorbing water again.
- Treat The Drain Field With Environmentally Safe Live Bacteria Culture - Over time the effluent that goes into your drain field hardens and becomes biomat. Biomat accumulation is the most common cause of drain field failure. Once the field is absorbing again, our non-toxic, non-pathogenic bacteria culture will absorb into the ground and start breaking down the biomat. This bacteria will reduce odor, and break down solids. It is safe for plants, animals and people.
- Install An Effluent Filter In The Outgoing Baffle - This stops solids from getting into the drain field and clogging things up.
- Install An Aerator - This converts you anaerobic septic system into an aerobic system which stimulates the growth of healthy bacteria and breaks down solids.
Having performed this procedure for over 20 years, we have found that the combination of these steps yields a very high success rate.
