• About Us

  • We are a local small - medium size family owned business servicing the Southeastern Massachusetts and Rhode Island area for 43 years.  Our company was founded by Dennis J. Bastarache in 1971 and has grown into a successful drain cleaning company with 10 employees.  Dennis has earned a reputation for finding the cause of your drain problems and then a solution.  He is well respected by many local city and towns for his work in diagnosing and locating troubled drainage lines.

    In January of 2015 Dennis will step aside as President of D J Bass, Inc. and Nicholas Caneira will be the new CEO under the new Corporate name of NVLC, LLC but continue with the name Bass Reddy Rooter and Rent-A-Jon.  Nicholas is coming full circle. He started working part time for Bass' Reddy Rooter while in the high school plumbing program 15 years ago.  His dream at the time was to run a waste water treatment facility which he left to pursue a few years later.  He has had a very successful career in operational managment at numerous private and municipal Water Treatment facilities excelling to the highest role of management. His latest endeavor was Superintendent of the Waste Water division for the City of New Bedford.  After achieving his goals he has decided to return to his true calling of owning the company where it all began.  His goal is to provide the highest level of service in the drain cleaning industry and to expand into the many facets of pump station maintenance and beyond.
