At Apollo Plumbing, Heating and Air Conditioning, we offer pipeline cutting options for effectively removing portions of pipelines. To achieve this safely and without extensive excavation, we have cured-in-place (CIPP) robotic cutting services. Our technology and equipment are among some of the most advanced in the industry, and we are proud to offer our services to customers residing in both Oregon and Washington.
CIPP robotic cutting carves out service connections after CIPP installation. A CIPP robotic cutter travels down passages that are too small or dangerous to enter. This equipment is outfitted with video cameras and blades, allowing our technicians to carefully navigate and control the robots as they provide full functionality to the newly installed pipes. CIPP robotic cutting is the best way to reinstate the lateral or service connections in a newly formed CIPP (cured-in-place pipe) system. Robot cutters allow technicians to access the new pipe without needing to dig or create destruction on properties.
CIPP is formed by a flexible lining which hardens in place. The lining repairs damage in the old pipe. One of the advantages of CIPP is that the new pipeline doesn’t have seams. This jointless construction eliminates weak points and results in a seamless, smooth liner.
CIPP repairs damaged pipes without digging or destruction. CIPP uses a combination of old-fashioned plumbing skills and high-tech methods to create a liner that hardens into a new pipe a few hours after installation. The procedure is quicker than traditional types of pipe replacement. The process involves several, important steps:
CIPP lining creates a pipe that will last for 50 years or longer. It’s a method that’s safe, economical, and causes less inconvenience than methods that require excavation. Cracks, holes, and leaks are repaired with this trenchless technology. Connections that carry water to or from the mainline are also blocked during the installation, and leaving them covered is problematic. For the times when pipes contain these connections, we use our robotic cutters to restore them.
Apollo Plumbing, Heating and Air Conditioning is certified to install CIPP trenchless systems. Our technicians have the training and experience that ensure the job is done right. CIPP lining relies on different technologies that require knowledge and skill to be deployed, as well as equipment and systems to be completely effective. Our IMS Robots are part of this process and improve the efficiency of our work.
Apollo Plumbing, Heating and Air Conditioning utilizes IMS Robot, a state-of-the-art, high-speed method of trimming and cutting intruding lateral connections within your sewer line. It’s a gentle, non-destructive technique that grinds clay tile, PVC pipe, concrete, or cast-iron pipes. It’s an effective and soft method of pipe removal can prevent fractures and splitting of the lateral pipe, saving the extensive amount of time and money that can go into repairing these damages.
IMS Robotics provides a wide range of features that provide a level of control that keeps your project precise and safe. They offer the leading sewer main repair machine that allows our team to complete all rehabilitation work with accuracy and precision. From adjusting the powerful LED lighting, an adjustable arm that moves both vertically, horizontally, and a tool holder that rotates 360 degrees, this diversity of motion makes hard to reach areas accessible and manageable for our experts.
We can determine if we need to adjust the light or rotate the grinder with the camera that can pan up and down. In addition, it also features an adjustable focus and a crystal-clear lens so that we always have a perfect view of the pipes. The low center of gravity and substantial weight keeps the robot secure and stable in the sewer so additional methods don’t need to be taken to secure it.
With the IMS Robotics, Apollo Plumbing, Heating and Air Conditioning can take on a variety of projects only using one manhole for access. The robotic cutting and grinding features include:

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!"
