For nearly 30 years, Apollo Drain & Rooter Service Inc. has serviced sewer and water taps in the Portland, Oregon and Vancouver, Washington areas.

Mainline taps connect your water and sewer lines to the public water or sewage main lines. Water taps, or “wet taps,” are responsible for maintaining proper water pressure and volume to your property.MainLineTap2

Connection Problems

Mainline taps must be examined and maintained. If you have a hunch you may have a problem with your main sewer and water line taps, call an expert to repair or replace them. Here are a few problems that may result from using faulty taps:

  • Blow outs. You may have a “driven” tap installed. These are old taps, installed before power tools. They were driven in with a hammer and lack threading. These should be replaced.
  • Low water pressure.
  • Incorrect volume of water.
  • Leaks. Are you noticing spikes in your water bill and don’t know why? You may have a defective water line.

Are you adding or repairing mainline connections? Do you need a professional plumber to troubleshoot your problem? If so, call Apollo Drain & Rooter Service Inc. at (503) 239-8801.
