At Apollo Drain & Rooter Service, we assist customers with catch basin and downspout complications, installing and maintaining these important fixtures as needed. Our services are priced accordingly and we keep our work minimally invasive in order to satisfy all of our customers.
Catch Basins Installation & Service
Catch basins are designed to funnel away the excess water created by frequent rainfalls in the region, keeping homes and businesses safe and dry while maintaining a healthy environment. Catch basins collect water runoff from car wash businesses in addition to managing the water flow into the city sewer system to prevent flooding. Catch basins also collect sediment and pollutants so that these substances don’t contaminate water supplies.
Drainage systems require a method of collecting and directing water to pipeline systems and catch basins allow pipes from different directions and elevations to meet at one location and move surface water to a subsurface pipe. With all of these important functions in place, catch basins can become prone to failure as the result of foreign materials building up inside of them over time, which can result in blocking the water flow and reducing the basin’s effectiveness. Residents in Oregon and Washington can rest easy, however, because our team of professionals has the equipment and knowledge required to effectively fix catch basins and keep them maintained for years.
Catch Basin Repairs
At Apollo Drain & Rooter Service, we have highly trained technicians who are experienced in caring for catch basins, and our team is equipped with the best tools to complete every job as efficiently as possible. If you’re experiencing flooding around your catch basin, the most likely cause is excessive sediment, grease, and debris buildup in the catch basin compartment.
We have high-powered vacuum trucks to extract the collected debris, each supplied with long attachments that can reach your catch basin no matter where it is, including along the street, in the basement, even out in the middle of the yard. Our skilled technicians work quickly and efficiently so your drains will be restored in a short time.
Catch Basin Maintenance
You don’t have to wait until you have a problem to have your catch basin cleaned. Many businesses and homeowners in the area schedule regular catch basin service to ensure that they never have to deal with flooding due to a clogged basin. A semi-annual inspection and catch basin pumping will prevent most flooding, especially in the winter when drains in the Portland area experience the heaviest, most frequent use.
A clean basin also discourages mosquito spawning and reduces the likelihood that pollutants will slip into the water supply. Catch basin pumping is affordable and quick, so it’s an excellent way to maintain a strong, healthy environment. Performing routine maintenance can not only increase the flow of your catch basin, but can reduce the risk of flooding during winter weather, reduce mosquito hatches, and debris blockages.
Ensure Catch Basins Meet Regulations
Catch basin pumping may also be required to stay in compliance with Portland stormwater management regulations. Catch basins are required to be cleaned twice and year and maintain 50% conveyance, which means your catch basin should never be more than half filled with debris. If you live in the City of Portland, we can help you develop an affordable catch basin maintenance program to ensure you meet the requirements and don’t need to worry about the catch basin experiencing complications.
At Apollo Drain & Rooter Services, we have the right tools and best technicians to clear away blockages and restore your catch basins to optimum efficiency. We are proud to offer fast and affordable catch basin installation and repair services as well as downspout installation and maintenance work.
Downspouts Installation & Maintenance
If you’re having problems with the water draining from your gutters or are seeing water overflowing and dripping from the gutter system joints, our experts at Apollo Drain & Rooter Services can offer maintenance of your downspouts, as well as installation and repair services.
The Purpose Of Downspouts
The downspout is designed to safely transport water off the roof of a home or business to the ground or drain that travels along the surface. This keeps the foundation of the home safe from excess water and the potential damage it can cause if left unchecked. Downspouts can become clogged over time by the leaves from nearby trees or branches, as well as dirt in the air.
With the frequent storms that Portland, Oregon experiences, as well as the desert climate in some parts of the region, these environmental factors can place additional strain on the downspouts and prevent them from working as efficiently as needed.
Our cleaning services ensure that we can safely remove the clogs from within the downspout and preserve your property in the process as well. If the downspout is broken beyond repair, we can quickly install a new one and make sure that our customer’s experience little downtime. Our team also recommends checking the system periodically following a major storm to ensure that no clogs have formed inside of the downspouts, otherwise, this could cause it to burst and create major property damage.

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.

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.
