As long as there have been sewer lines, they’ve been busting and needing to be repaired. In the old days, if a company needed a pipe replaced, it meant digging out the old one. Today, thanks to CURED-IN-PLACE-PIPE repair, or CIPP, replacing broken pipes is faster, cleaner and easier. When compared to ripping out and replacing a sewer line, businesses save money with CIPP repair.
How CIPP Repairs Work
CIPP is a nondestructive method of fixing an existing pipe. Damaged pipes stay in the ground forming the basis of the trenchless repair. A certified CIPPtechnician reaches the pipe through a cleanout or other access. The technician, with the help of high-tech equipment, inserts a flexible lining into the pipe.
The lining cures in place, forming a safe, seamless tube. The resin that coats the newly installed flexible liner is stable and will not harm the environment. A robotic cutter reinstates connections to other pipes if needed. The repairs are finished without having to dig or rip out old piping. Streets, driveways and lawns remain intact.
No Above-Ground Repairs
Digging also means you’ll pay for more than the cost of excavating and laying in a new pipe. You’ll also have to budget for landscape repairs, including labor and materials. It can add up pretty quickly.
CIPP Saves Time
A pause or slowdown of business can be costly. If a sewer line or pipe breaks, it needs to get fixed ASAP. But digging up and replacing a pipe takes time and can easily result in schedule and budget overruns.
With CIPP an old pipe can be repaired in a few hours. With excavation, the fix could take days, requiring a large crew of workers as well as additional heavy equipment. While the digging goes on, your store or business has to work around the disruptions. That can mean a loss of customers, a slowing of production and a big mess.
CIPP Offers Long-Lasting Repairs
CIPPsaves money by making long-lasting fixes. For instance, a tree-root damaged sewer can be repaired by conventional methods. Often that type of fix will need to be repeated in a few years.
Roots plague old pipes that are either porous or have miniscule cracks. Moisture leaks from the the pipes, attracting thirsty plants. The roots push into the sewer and create a blockage. Drain-cleaning machines can cut through the clogs. Sometimes chemicals can be used to inhibit growth, but eventually the roots return.
Pipes repaired with CIPPdon’t attract tree roots. The lining forms a seal that doesn’t leak. Trees have to look elsewhere for their drink of water.

Fantastic customer service. We were out of town when tenants needed help with a plumbing issue. They let us know who was being dispatched to our house then followed up with a very detailed message post work. I would definitely use these guys again.
I can’t say enough good things about this company. Had a sewer repair needed and had a very short amount of time due to closing on a house sale. Every single person I encountered from Marquita doing logistics for my job to every member of the work crew. Friendly, communicated well, totally responsive and really cared to help me through this very stressful job. All of the people I encountered were role models for what a well run service business should be. Much thanks and appreciation. You’re great.
We had a leak and no hot water. Apollo came out same day and not only fixed the problem but made it better and gave us some good advice on our system. Very reasonable and great communication. Would definitely recommend.
Don is always so helpful and knowledgeable. I really appreciate all the crew members on the Apollo team. I'm a Property Manager so typically I will have several projects for Apollo to address during a single visit. They are easy to interact with and EXCELLENT plumbers. I highly recommend Apollo.
Scott, I would like to personally thank you for expediting our plumbing crisis we recently had. If the situation was not resolved immediately we would have had to close for a couple of days. This occured on a Friday for for us a pizza restaurant this would of been devastating. Thank you so much.

We are a Wendy's Restaurant franchisee in Vancouver, Washington and I want to personally thank Scott and his crew at Apollo for invaluable and excellent service to our restaurants over the last several years. We have used Scott's company after failing miserably with Apollo's many competitors. We tried every one before discovering the extraordinary service we enjoy from Scott and his techs.
