Mainline Repair & Extensions
Mainline systems are planned and constructed in accordance with local county or district requirements, and we train our technicians to work within these standards and codes. Sewer and water mainline extensions may be required if you need to establish service in an area not served by the current mainline system.
Since 1984, Apollo Drain & Rooter Service has helped our customers through the extension approval and construction process. If maintenance or improvements to mainlines are deemed necessary, we may be able to help obtain information on local regulations. Our staff can help create appropriate analysis and construction plans.
Our long-standing relationships with local communities across Oregon and Washington make us a uniquely qualified company to assist you during this process. Once complete, operation of the mainline extension is returned to and maintained by the district.
Mainline Taps in Portland Oregon
Mainline taps connect your water and sewer lines to the public water or sewage main lines. Water taps, or “wet taps,” are responsible for maintaining proper water pressure and volume to your property.
Mainline Connection Problems
Mainline taps must be examined and maintained. If you have a hunch you may have a problem with your main sewer and water line taps, call an expert to repair or replace them. Here are a few problems that may result from using faulty taps:
Driven Tap Blow Outs
Driven taps are older types of taps installed prior to the invention of power tools, instead driven in with a hammer. These driven taps are undersized and can become clogged quite easily, causing them to blow out. This type of installation results in low-quality results, as the tap lacks threading to be effective. These driven taps can’t be reused once this happens, and as a result of their unreliability, they have become outdated and can be replaced by our experts.
Low Water Pressure
Taps may suffer from emitting an incorrect volume of water as a result of becoming loose or suffering from leaks. Our technicians can adjust the taps and ensure that the correct water pressure is restored.
Defective water lines suffering from leaks can result in noticeable spikes in the water bill regardless of the water usage. Because leaks can be incredibly damaging if left unidentified, our team takes the time to conduct a careful, thorough leak detection session and identify its location so that it can be repaired accordingly.
