Slow Drains in Portland and Vancouver

Home » Drain » Slow Drains in Portland and Vancouver

Slow-working drains are commonly perceived as a nuisance, but it usually indicates a more serious problem in your sewer lines. Once you notice that your drains are acting up, call a professional technician and have it checked right away. Don't wait until it becomes a recurring issue or a full-blown emergency. At Apollo Plumbing Service, Inc., we will service your Portland and Vancouver drains with speed and efficiency.

A Slow Drain Can Indicate a More Serious Problem

If you're starting to notice a raw sewage smell, gurgling sounds or slow water pressure, then this indicates that the drains need cleaning or repair. Slow drains can clog or cause backups anytime, which can prove to be an inconvenience. What's more, black water can come in instead of out, leading to a mess and a health-risk situation.

Advanced Cleaning Services in Portland, OR and Vancouver, WA

At Apollo Plumbing Service, Inc., we offer the latest in sewer and drain cleaning for our customers in Portland, OR and Vancouver, WA. Our techniques are rated as one of the best eco-friendly methods. Hydro jetting can clean pipes regardless of type, size, and material. It's a form of power washing that involves high-pressure water to scour your inner pipe walls free of debris, calcified matter, dirt, soil, and others. This procedure will leave your drain fully restored and able to function again.

Bathroom Drains

Drains in the bathroom can become overworked when there's a large accumulation of hair, soap scum and shampoo residue. The debris often collects in the pop-up assembly and form a net that traps bath, sink, and shower debris. Soon, you'll start to notice an inch or two of standing water.

Kitchen Drains

Large pieces of food, such as rice, bone, and cut vegetables are often the culprit of a kitchen drain clog. Moreover, homeowners flush their drains with used oil, grease, and sediment, which get trapped into the P-trap or the drain basket. The flow of water is greatly affected until the clog is cleared completely.

Sewer Line Problems

Constantly clogged toilets are a sign that your sewer system needs a repair or a thorough clean. The most common drain pipe concerns are sludge buildup, collapsed pipes, aged pipes or tree roots that have invaded your sewer line via an open joint, leak or crack.

Vent Problem

A drain line is connected to the property's vent stacks in the kitchen, the bathroom and other strategic places around the house. When these stacks get clogged with leaves, pieces of bird's nest, sticks and mud, your drains get affected as well. You'll start noticing a slower drain, which indicates that the vent stacks need cleaning.

At Apollo Plumbing Service, Inc., we use a camera inspection technique that allows us to see exactly what's going on inside your Portland and Vancouver sewer or drain lines. From there, we come up with a 100% accurate diagnosis to resolve your clogs and backups in a safe, efficient manner. If hydro jetting is viable, our technicians can get rid of all stuck debris, calcified matter and roots via highly pressurized water, sending the material to the nearest municipal treatment system. Periodic maintenance is recommended to keep your drains in optimal condition. Our technicians are trustworthy and we provide estimates before starting any job.
