WACO, TX--(Marketwire - May 31, 2011) - One year after Mr. Rooter purified the water for Haitian earthquake victims, the plumbing company promotes a Bathroom Makeover Sweepstakes worth $5,000.

The winner will receive plumbing fixtures that conserve water and save money. Mr. Rooter Plumbing's Bathroom Makeover Sweepstakes also gives the plumbing company a way to educate consumers on being Water-Wise™ around the house.
