Sy Fy’s Ghost Hunters, Roto-Rooter Launch New Bathroom Reader Book and Sweepstakes

CINCINATI, OH —Roto-Rooter has unveiled its latest creation to bring joy and relief to bathrooms everywhere. Chilling Tales from the Porcelain Seat is a vignette-style bathroom reader featuring real life Roto-Rooter service technicians turned Ghost Hunters, Sy Fy channel’s Ghost Hunters Jason Hawes and Grant Wilson. Chilling Tales from the Porcelain Seat features strange but true tales of plumbing horrors and hilarity and is available for purchase at The cover price is $12.95 and shipping is free.

The idea behind the book stems from all the strange, odd, unexplained and simply weird experiences both the Ghost Hunters and other Roto-Rooter plumbers have witnessed over the years involving pipes, drains, sinks and toilets. Many of the locations thought to have poltergeists simply turn out to be plumbing issues, clanging pipes and DIY gone wrong, Hawes said.

“Chilling Tales from the Porcelain Seat highlights the odd experiences that many plumbers encounter on a daily basis,” Hawes added. “People will be shocked to learn about some of the things we see, and we even asked ordinary homeowners from all across the country send in their plumbing horror stories for the book. There are tales that will curl your hair, and others that are just so funny you can’t help but belly laugh. It’s the best way to spend some quality time on the throne.”

The book is also filled with practical tips, advice for do-it-yourselfers who may be looking to tackle a plumbing problem, although Hawes wryly admits that his best do-it-yourself plumbing advice is to call a professional. Chilling Tales features toilet trivia and a chapter that tells the Ghost Hunters’ inspiring story.

Visitors to can also enter Roto-Rooter’s Chilling Tales Sweepstakes for a chance to win a trip to join Jason and Grant on a real ghost hunt at The Stanley Hotel in Colorado, the location for the movie The Shining; or the chance to stay at the haunted Spaulding Inn of New Hampshire, now owned by the Ghost Hunters stars.
