Polybutylene Pipes Polybutylene pipes were common in houses built between 1975 and 1978. The material was found to crack easily, and so the pipes were outlawed moving forward. However, if you have a house built during that time, it’s a good idea to have your home checked for a polybutylene waterline crack.

    Apollo jetted the basement drain line in our old 1927 Portland house. The line has been backing up thru the floor drain for a while. The technician cleared out the line with the hydro-jet, and it’s running great now. On-time and professional!

    Apollo Plumbing, Heating and Air Conditioning was on time, professional, and very knowledgeable. He took the time to inspect our rain drain to our dry well and do everything he could to alleviate the issue. I would highly recommend Apollo, they were informative and straight forward. Honesty is obviously a value they uphold for their customers.
