Portland Oregon’s Apollo Plumbing, Heating and Air Conditioning provides green, eco-friendly practices that place an emphasis on preserving the environment. To achieve this goal, we strive to innovate all of our processes with trenchless technology, minimizing costs and labor in favor of conducting repairs quickly and efficiently while offering results that will last for many years.
Trenchless technology allows for our solutions to be more practical. Gone are the days of extensive trench digging and plowing; with this technology at the forefront of our process, we are able to burst and rehabilitate the pipes from the inside with our no-dig solutions. Trenchless solutions can be employed through various methods, with the most efficient and clean method being cured-in-place pipe (CIPP) lining, a process that is, in most circumstances, a guaranteed no-dig solution.
At Apollo Plumbing, Heating and Air Conditioning, our trenchless technology uses methods that minimize the construction impacts associated with the traditional open-cut construction methods. If you are noticing a high water bill without obvious, visible water damage, this could be indicative of a leak in the pipeline system. Our methods of a trenchless boring or trenchless pipe bursting can be an easy fix to an otherwise expensive problem.
Trenchless boring replacement utilizes a horizontal drilling machine to drill a pilot hole for new installation of a pipeline while avoiding underground hazards and with minimal damage to your home or property. Trenchless pipe boring can generally be used for both wastewater systems and freshwater systems.
Trenchless pipe bursting replacement simply means splitting an old, worn out pipe while inserting a new one. Trenchless pipe bursting can also be used to repair both wastewater systems and freshwater pipeline systems, ensuring that all homes and businesses in the community can be assisted by our efforts.
At Apollo Plumbing, Heating and Air Conditioning, we will be able to comfortably handle all of your pipe replacement needs quickly and with as little damage to your property as possible.

Trenchless sewer repair refers to several technologies that allow us to clean out or repair your sewer pipes without digging up your whole yard. Traditional sewer repair involves digging a trench along the entire length of your sewer line, from your home to where it joins the city’s line in the street. This often involved taking out grass, trees, sidewalks, driveways, and more! With trenchless sewer repair, you can get a long-lasting fix to your sewer problem without all that hassle and expense.
We’ll send a small camera on a flexible cable down the entire length of your sewer line. Our camera gives us a clear, 360-degree view of your entire sewer line. It allows us to see any clogs in the line, cracks or breaks in the pipe, or other potential problems with the line. It also allows us to determine the exact location of the problems so we can target our repairs accordingly.
Hydro jetting involves shooting a controlled, concentrated stream of water into your pipes. We can direct this stream so that it targets the scum and scale that has built up on the sides of your pipes or so that it decimates clogs in the lines. The water is so concentrated that it can break up even tough clogs, including some tree roots. After hydro jetting, your clog won’t just be gone, but the insides of your pipes will look brand new.
Cured-in-place piping technology allows us to reline your sewer pipes without having to dig up the line. We turn the liner inside out and cover the inside with epoxy. Then, we run the liner into your line until it covers the crack or break in your sewer pipe. Our machines turn the pipe liner right side out again, allowing the epoxy to adhere to the existing pipe. Then we heat the inside of the liner so the epoxy can form a lasting seal. When we’re done, your pipe will have a brand new interior lining.
The project duration for your CIPP repair will vary based on the products we use, the length of pipe replaced, and other factors. However, many products come with a 10-year warranty and you can actually expect them to last for 50 years or more. The liner resists corrosion by water and other substances and provides a barrier that repels tree roots, too.
Most of the time, trenchless sewer repair is not only the fastest and easiest way to fix your sewer line, but it’s also the cheapest, too. While we cannot quote a price for your project until we know what is going on in your sewer line and what you need to have done, experience has shown that trenchless repairs almost always cost less than those done via traditional methods.
Trenchless repair is cheaper simply because you don’t have to pay to have your yard dug up and you don’t have to pay to have it put back together when we’re done, either. Eliminating these costs means that all you pay for is the repair itself.
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!"
