Most residential and commercial property owners go about their business without ever knowing the condition of their underground pipes. The only time they take notice is when sewer problems such as backups, contaminated water, a high water bill, and raw sewage smell occur, disrupting day to day tasks. At Apollo Plumbing, Heating and Air Conditioning, we offer comprehensive pipe analysis and detailed checks using the latest inspection equipment. An HD CCTV camera is inserted into any drain pipe opening in order to see the root of the problem and its extent. Thanks to real-time images sent to a compatible monitor screen, we are able to recommend the best solution for our Vancouver and Portland customers.
Our capable technicians will always recommend the best and the most effective solutions that save our customers time and money. CIPP, or cured in place pipe lining is a trenchless technology that fixes all broken, cracked and damaged pipes in one go. We insert a tube that’s coated with a special epoxy resin to the damaged spot via air pressure or a winch, then an inflatable device makes the tube expand to fit the insides of the old pipe. The epoxy resin is activated using UV or water; in just a few hours, a new pipe is formed inside the ailing line.
The typical lifespan of a sewer pipe is somewhere between 40 to 60 years. Older pipes that have more vulnerable materials are prone to cracking, developing leaks and holes or being invaded by nearby tree roots. Calcified matter and deposits can make the diameter narrow and the pipe starts forming clogs. Our lining procedure creates a stronger, more durable pipe in place, which is expected to last for 50 years or more.

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!"
