With over 30 years of in-depth industry experience, our talented team has the technology, techniques, and training to reliably restore your plumbing system. If you’re experiencing any issues with your plumbing, reach out to our skilled technicians for professional repairs, installations, and maintenance.
Preventative maintenance is an often overlooked element of keeping a plumbing system healthy and functional, but we always stress its importance. Up-front professional plumbing maintenance is an excellent way to avoid unexpected damage later on, and Apollo Drain & Rooter Service has an array of effective services to extend the life of your Northwest plumbing.
Full-Service Plumbing Maintenance Solutions
Our certified technicians can work with your schedule to develop a routine preventative maintenance plan. We can visit your home or office at regularly scheduled times to inspect, clean, and repair your plumbing system. During our visits, we can discuss any issues you have noticed or concerns you may have before we begin the inspection. Providing outstanding customer service is a cornerstone of our business, so a thorough consultation can help us focus our efforts where they are needed most.
To gather reliable information about the inner workings of your plumbing system, we will utilize our innovative video camera to precisely inspect your drains and pipes. Our high-resolution camera can conveniently access your pipes through an existing pipeline cleanout hole or through a strategically dug entry point. Our technicians will not have to excavate your property to analyze your pipe and find areas of damage. Instead, we can carefully navigate our state-of-the-art camera into your pipe and control it from the ground as it maneuvers through the pipeline. The durable camera is attached to a long and flexible fiber-optic cable, which can help it swivel around inside your pipe to capture footage of its interior from every angle. The camera can transmit the detailed footage to our monitors, and our expertly trained camera operators can analyze the footage to determine the condition and age of your Vancouver pipes. We can also use the footage to pinpoint exact locations of invading tree roots, scale buildup, stubborn clogs, breakages, weakened joints, and other damage. With that valuable information obtained and processed, we can then personalize an effective cleaning or repair solution to eliminate small issues before they get a chance to develop into major complications.
Versatile and Effective Drain Cleaning Options
In many cases, our high-quality camera inspection will find minor obstructions that can easily be removed with hydro jetting. Hydro jetting is an efficient and environmentally safe drain cleaning method that can be completed quickly and non-invasively. Using the camera entry hole, we can safely insert a specialized hose with attached nozzle into your Portland pipes. As the hose moves through your pipe, our knowledgeable drain cleaning specialists can monitor a tank of clean water, controlling the force and flow as the water moves through the hose and sprays into your pipe through the rotating nozzle. The water can scour debris and buildup off of your pipeline wall and flush it out of your plumbing system, easily restoring the performance and flow capacity of your pipe.
Hydro jetting is an effective drain cleaning solution in many situations, but sometimes, we run into a plumbing system that needs an alternative. When this happens, we offer a more traditional drain cleaning option, which is drain snaking. Our drain snake is a coiled metal wire that can be sent into your pipe. As our technicians rotate the wire, the snake can snag a clog and we can remove it through your drain. Drain snaking is a great option for aging pipelines that may not be able to withstand highly pressurized hydro jetting, but regardless of which drain cleaning option is right for your plumbing, our technicians are highly trained and qualified to clear out your pipes.
Our drain cleaning solutions can remove gunk and buildup in their earliest stages to reduce the likelihood that aggressive clogs will completely block your plumbing. They are effective preventative plumbing maintenance solutions that can help you avoid a whole host of common plumbing problems down the road.
Common Plumbing Problems
Apollo Drain & Rooter Service sees many plumbing problems pop up each year, many of which can be avoided with routine plumbing maintenance. Some of the more common plumbing problems include, but are not limited to:
- Low water pressure due to calcified buildup inside faucets and fixtures, clogged drains, or water heater damage.
- Slow drainage because of clogs, deteriorated water lines, or damaged sump pumps.
- Sewage backups as a result of damaged pipes, pipeline blockages, or underground leaks.
- Poor water quality due to water heater corrosion, scale buildup inside pipes, or clogged sewer lines.
- Foul odors because of blocked garbage disposals, backed up sewer lines, or water line leaks.
There are many plumbing problems that can cause messy and expensive damage to your Gresham home or office, but Apollo Drain & Rooter Service can use preventative plumbing maintenance to help you avoid those situations all together.
Expert Plumbing Maintenance to Save You Money and Time
We use plumbing maintenance to keep a number of issues at bay. By inspecting your drains and pipes on a regular basis, we can keep track of any areas of concern. We can clean out your pipes to remove minor debris and make small repairs before major repairs or plumbing system replacements are needed. When plumbing issues are allowed to grow and worsen, you could find yourself facing unpleasant consequences. For example, large clogs can send wastewater back up into your home or office, which can cause extensive damage to your property. Not only can your walls, floors, cabinets, appliances, furniture, and other interior possessions be destroyed by standing water, your air quality and health can be put at risk by mold and mildew growth. Further, if wastewater backs up into your office, your business can be forced to close temporarily, putting your productivity, profitability, and reputation in danger.
Reducing your risk of plumbing emergencies and lowering your overall plumbing costs is at the heart of routine plumbing maintenance. Our team has the skill and knowledge to maintain an optimal condition for your plumbing system, and our family-owned and –operated business is committed to keeping our local communities free from plumbing system failures. Professional plumbing maintenance can save you from time-consuming, pricey plumbing issues that could have been prevented, so reach out to Apollo Drain & Rooter Service to learn more.
24/7 Emergency Plumbing Services
Routine professional plumbing maintenance can extend the life and utility of your plumbing system, but sometimes, emergencies do happen. Broken pipes, sewage backups, and other plumbing emergencies can strike at the most inopportune times, and when they do, Apollo Drain & Rooter Service is ready. We proudly offer 24/7 emergency plumbing services so you don’t have to suffer for long. If you find yourself in an emergency plumbing situation, don’t try and find the problem yourself. DIY repair attempts can actually cause more harm than good, and in an emergency, every minute counts. Our team is fully equipped and ready to promptly respond to accurately identify the source of the problem and provide effective, high-quality repairs.
Avoid Home Remedies
Some home and business owners turn to their own home remedies to maintain their plumbing systems, but our team has seen too many DIY attempts turn out badly. Using homemade concoctions to clean out your pipes can provide temporary relief, but routine professional drain cleaning is a much more reliable way to completely remove buildup and debris. Our technicians can expertly and safely remove pipeline obstructions, but incorrect quantities or combinations of at-home drain cleaners can corrode and break your pipes. We can also gently and fully remove blockages with our professional-grade drain snakes. Drain snaking requires an experienced operator who knows the right amount of pressure to apply and has the skill to successfully navigate through a pipe’s many turns and traps. Without that expertise, DIY drain snaking could result in pipeline punctures or cracks. Apollo Drain & Rooter Service also has modern cameras that can easily inspect your pipes to locate damage and verify that repair efforts were successful. Without that piece of technology, you may think your DIY attempt was complete, but find out later on that the damage is still very evident inside your plumbing system.

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.
