Portland Oregon’s Apollo Plumbing Service provides green, eco-friendly practices that place an emphasis on preserving the environment. To achieve this goal, we strive to innovate all of our processes with trenchless technology, minimizing costs and labor in favor of conducting repairs quickly and efficiently while offering results that will last for many years.

Types of Trenchless Technology

As one of the leading trenchless professionals in our service area, we take pride in offering versatile services that can restore and rehabilitate your sewer pipes in a timely and effective manner. Trenchless technology makes it possible to repair or replace your pipes with little to no digging on your Portland, Oregon or Vancouver, Washington property. From trenchless pipe repair to trenchless pipe replacement, our team will always provide you with the best solution that meets your residential or commercial needs.

Trenchless Pipe Repair

Trenchless technology allows for our solutions to be more practical. Gone are the days of extensive trench digging and plowing; with this technology at the forefront of our process, we are able to burst and rehabilitate the pipes from the inside with our no-dig solutions. Trenchless solutions can be employed through various methods, with the most efficient and clean method being cured-in-place pipe (CIPP) lining, a process that is, in most circumstances, a guaranteed no-dig solution.

At Apollo Plumbing Services, our trenchless technology uses methods that minimize the construction impacts associated with the traditional open-cut construction methods. If you are noticing a high water bill without obvious, visible water damage, this could be indicative of a leak in the pipeline system. Our methods of trenchless boring or trenchless pipe bursting can be an easy fix to an otherwise expensive problem.

Trenchless Boring

Trenchless boring replacement utilizes a horizontal drilling machine to drill a pilot hole for new installation of a pipeline while avoiding underground hazards and with minimal damage to your home or property. Trenchless pipe boring can generally be used for both wastewater systems and freshwater systems.

Trenchless Pipe Replacement

Trenchless pipe bursting replacement simply means splitting an old, worn-out pipe while inserting a new one. Trenchless pipe bursting can also be used to repair both wastewater systems and freshwater pipeline systems, ensuring that all homes and businesses in the community can be assisted by our efforts. At Apollo Plumbing Service, we will be able to comfortably handle all of your pipe replacement needs quickly and with as little damage to your property as possible.

Trenchless is an Environmental Friendly Solutions

Apollo Plumbing and Drain is proud to offer trenchless services because they are an eco-friendly solution for your home or business. Trenchless technologies utilize environmentally-friendly materials that do not cause excessive stress to the environment around your pipes. Unlike the traditional method of pipe repair and replacement, trenchless pipe repair services do not require full-excavation that can take days to restore and may even cause permanent damage to your landscape in the long-term.

How Much Can You Expect to Spend on Trenchless Services?

The costs of pipe repair are dependent on the size and scope of the project. Generally, trenchless pipeline repair will cost between $80-$250 per foot of pipe. For a larger project, this creates a large range in final costs, so we’ll examine exactly what determines where your project might fall on that scale. The three most important factors considered when creating a quote are the size of the existing pipe, its condition, and how easily accessed it is from above ground.

Existing Pipe Size

Your existing pipe’s diameter directly impacts the cost of materials almost as much as the length of the pipe to be serviced. Simply put, smaller pipes require less epoxy resin while larger lines require more, so a narrow pipe will reduce the cost of your project by needing less money for materials.

Pipe Condition

If your pipe is relatively new and clean save for a single crack or blockage, repairs are fairly straightforward; however, when longstanding issues like scale build-up or multiple points of corrosion are present additional steps may be needed. Descaling older iron pipes, for example, can take anywhere from one hour to a full day – and that labor will impact your final payout.

Accessibility

A pipe located just a few feet below soft ground will be easy to access. A 15-foot-deep pipe beneath concrete, however, will take more tools and more time. Additionally, access to some pipes is obscured by the presence of subsurface utility lines, which can complicate the process of drilling into the pipeline. To access a highly covered or partially blocked pipe, more precision will be required and man-hours will necessarily increase - contributing to the overall cost.
