These new solutions cover a vast area of different forms of repair and can save time and money in the process.
How Trenchless Sewer Repair Works
In the days before trenchless options were available, the only way to repair damaged pipes was to excavate them using a trenching process. This process involved digging into floorboards or lawns in long trenches that enabled technicians to get to the problem areas. This caused homeowners to have to suffer through the decimation of lawns or parts of homes, costly repair fees, and prolonged time periods of repair on their sewer lines. The entire ordeal was exhaustive and expensive. To combat this, trenchless technology was created that bypasses the need to cut into lawns or residences.
Trenchless Sewer Repair Methods
Instead, small access lines are made and linings and tools gain access to the areas they are needed. Cameras are also sent down to ensure the right area and diagnosis are discovered before any treatment begins, making the repair processes much more reliable as well, and these include:
- Pipe Bursting
Pipe bursting is a trenchless method of replacing pipelines that are deep underground (such as sewer, water, or natural gas pipes) without the need for a traditional construction trench. Using a busting-head, the original pipe is broken up as a new pipe is set in its place. This type of repair is done at last resort when pipes need to be removed because they are too structurally compromised.
- Point Repair:
A flexible tube is inserted into the damaged pipe. This inserted pipe is installed by just digging one hole, which means major excavation isn’t required. This is why it is also sometimes called point repair because it typically requires the plumber to just create one hole or access point. This can be used to fix only small problems in pipes like cracks or fissures, and Cure in place piping will fix full pipelines if they need to be fully replaced.
CIPP is a process in which pipe re-lining is used to install a Cured In Place Pipe (CIPP). This cured in place lining conforms to the contours of the original pipe. The inner new lining that is placed within the old pipe acts as a brand new pipe and stops leakages, cracks or other structural issues in the original pipe. This process is done when there is a large crack in the pipe, but the structural integrity of the original pipe is strong enough to support an inner liner without causing further damage to the sewer system. If you or anyone you know may need trenchless repair to fix damaged piping, or help in diagnosing a sewer problem, give Apollo Plumbing Services a call. Our highly trained technicians will care for your Gresham home in Oregon and leave you with peace of mind.
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.

It's my absolute pleasure to recommend Karen Johnson at Apollo Plumbing Service. I have had the pleasure of taking a class taught by Karen. Her knowledge and expertise is a huge advantage to my entire office. I know if I am in a pinch I can call the office and talk to someone! Their customer service is truly amazing, and I have had compliments from customers in the past.

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.
