With regular municipal pipe cleaning from Apollo Plumbing, Heating & Air Conditioning, sewer systems in Vancouver will stay well maintained, and municipalities can avoid the most common pipe problems, including corrosion and pipe blockages.

As they age, municipal sewer systems are prone to deterioration if they have not been properly maintained, which leaves them vulnerable to clog formations, cracks, and leaks. Regular drain cleaning is a smart preventive measure that reduces the risk of most issues and keeps sewer systems functioning properly.


Any municipal sewer system should make drain cleaning part of their overall maintenance strategy. As part of a routine cleaning, a qualified drain cleaning technician can inspect the drains and repair any small problems before they get out of hand.

A well-thought-out municipal sewer maintenance plan will prevent costly and time-consuming pipeline failures from occurring. A large-scale water main line problem will result in the need for an extensive repair project, which could also disrupt traffic flows or cause businesses to temporarily close. Municipal pipeline cleanings can reduce the likelihood of this type of problem, since they can help eliminate typical sewer line issues such as sludge and sediment buildup, mineral deposits and tree root intrusions.


At Apollo Plumbing, Heating & Air Conditioning, we understand the procedures that need to be done to separate fresh water from sewer water and remain compliant with EPA requirements. We will work with you to provide the cleanest water to your municipality, and can also help improve the quality of your infrastructures.

Currently, we offer the following drain cleaning services:

Drain Snaking:

Snaking involves inserting a coiled metal wire down the pipe and rotating it to unclog drains. This method works best for removing softer, more minor clogs.

Rooter Services:

Rooter machines use a rotating cable with an attached blade to dislodge blockages that have occurred due to grease, soap, tree roots, and other foreign objects.

Hydro Jetting:

Hydro jetting is the most effective solution for major pipe blockages such as tree roots that have grown into the sewer pipes. It uses a specially designed machine that scours the interiors of pipes with a stream of highly pressurized water of up to 3,500 PSI.

With these three procedures at our disposal, there is no drain cleaning problem in your pipes that we can’t solve.


Municipal drainage and sewer systems are a major part of keeping day-to-day life running smoothly. Regular municipal sewer line cleaning is essential to the proper functioning of city sewer lines and can help ensure more satisfied citizens.
