The old way of repairing a pipe is more than messy. It requires digging that damages the landscape. During the destruction, there’s also the potential to damage old plumbing systems.
A Nondestructive Way to Repair Pipes
CIPP or CURED-IN-PLACE PIPE is a nondestructive way to repair pipes. Is CIPP safe for old pipes? Yes. It makes a stable pipe-within-a-pipe repair without the need for excavation. CIPP uses an environmentally friendly method. During the repair, the old pipe is not disturbed. It stays intact, serving as a frame for a new flexible liner.
The pipe system beneath our homes and office buildings dispatches gray water and shuttles away sewage. Over time, this system rusts, cracks and becomes clogged. It is ultimately necessary to replace some or all of the pipes.
Eco-Friendly Trenchless Repair
CIPP repair is eco-friendly, not to mention beneficial to the surrounding landscape.
Using CIPP is a much safer way and more economical way to repair or replace a pipe than digging trenches. An excavation site is hazardous both for workers and passersby. CIPP technicians can often insert a flexible liner into an old pipe through a cleanout or other existing opening.
Efficient and Economical
These no-dig techniques save time and money when replacing an existing pipe. A closed-circuit sewer inspection system is often used in CIPP repairs. The technician works by watching and controlling the entire process via a video monitor.
CIPP is a steam-cured fiberglass and epoxy system that allows for a no-dig solution to broken pipes. The liner is placed in the pipe, expanded and cured in place.
Because CIPP doesn’t require digging, it’s more cost effective than repairs that require excavation. Digging up the ground adds time to the project and requires more personnel. Once the pipe is in place your lawn or landscape will need to be replanted. With trenchless repairs, yards, garden beds, roads and sidewalks remain undisturbed.
Our CIPP technicians earn certification by graduating from a week-long training course. Not every company has the expertise to make dependable CIPP repairs. Our crew can safely and quickly make the repairs, ensuring a dependable pipe that’s easy on the environment.
CIPP works on pipes 2 – 48 inches in diameter. It can repair sections of pipe up to 150 feet in length. This technology can be used to repair horizontal or vertical pipe. It can fix lateral connections in residential or commercial buildings.

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.
