Water and sewer lines can crack, burst, or corrode. When this happens, most homeowners will dread getting the repairs done because it can be inconvenient and expensive.
But did you know that repairing underground pipes doesn’t have to ruin your yard, sidewalks, and landscaping? When you need repairs completed on your underground pipes, there is a no-dig solution: trenchless pipe repair.
What is Trenchless Pipe Repair?
Trenchless pipe repair technology means that contractors use a robotically controlled device that won’t disturb landscaping, sidewalks, or streets. The robotic device makes the repair, and then reconnects the sewer line to the main after the new lining is put in.
A video camera inspection will be done to pinpoint the exact cause of the damage and how the damage is affecting the water or sewage flow. This means that some of the guesswork is eliminated and it allows the plumber to focus exactly on the area in the section that needs the most work. Knowing this will save you money in repair costs and can also help prevent future problems.
What are the Advantages of Trenchless Pipe Repair?
- It’s quick and efficient, typically completed in less than a day
- Repairs meet industry standards
- Saves your lawn, garden landscaping, patio, sidewalk, and driveway from damage
- Can save homeowners money, because there is no need for restoring landscapes or hardscapes
- Less intrusive
Will Trenchless Pipe Repair Work for Your Property?
This type of repair can be done on most water pipe and sewer situations. Here are some scenarios that trenchless repair can work well.
- If pipes are located underneath the ground, underneath landscaping or your home
- If tree roots or other major household debris has blocked the sewer line or burst pipes
- If pipes have not been installed correctly and they need to be fixed
- If ground freezing and thawing has caused pipe or sewer line damage
- If house settling or earth movement has caused pipes to crack or break
- If you need to add larger water lines to your home
Trenchless pipe replacement and repair has been around for more than 20 years, but it is still considered somewhat new in the plumbing field. Because of this, it’s important to remember that not all jobs will qualify for this type of repair, so be sure to talk to a plumbing professional before you make a decision.
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 Drain and Rooter 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.
