How To Tell If Your Pipes Are Frozen

Some cases of frozen pipes are more obvious than others, here are some of the most common symptoms to look out for when it comes to frozen pipes:

  • The temperature is right – if the temperature outside drops below 32 degrees Fahrenheit, it’s a good idea to begin preparing your pipes for the cold weather.
  • You notice frost – the most obvious sign that your pipes are frozen is frost that has accumulated on the exterior. This is mainly noticeable on exterior pipes or underneath sinks.
  • No running water – trouble with water flow can be due to a variety of causes and a frozen pipe is one of them. If you are turning on the faucet and hardly anything comes out, it is time to call a professional.
  • Foul odor – if you are noticing a foul odor coming from your pipes, it could be because your pipe is blocked with ice, causing unwanted odors to escape back into your home.

How To Prevent Frozen Pipes

Our experts at Apollo are skilled at preparing all types of properties for cold weather. Calling a professional before your pipes are subject to freezing is the best way to prevent any issues. We will send a technician out to your property to perform a thorough inspection of the state of your pipes and insulate them properly.

Apollo's Repair Services

If you are past prevention, Apollo has the technology and experience to repair your pipes and get them working like new. We will conduct quality inspection on your pipelines and begin the thawing process. Once we have eliminated any frost, we will move forward with any necessary repairs.

In some cases, a frozen pipe can cause damage to a section of your pipeline system. If this is the case, we offer our trenchless service of CIPP lining. This process involves creating a new, durable lining for your pipe from the interior. This repair is simple, fast, and affordable.

If your damaged pipe is severe enough to require a replacement, our team at Apollo may recommend pipe bursting. With pipe bursting, we are able to replace the section of damaged line by breaking it apart with a bursting head and bringing in a new one – all without digging.

Whether you have frozen pipes on your property, or want to prevent them from happening, Apollo Plumbing Services are here to help. Call us today to learn more about our services or to schedule an appointment.

Trenchless Repair FAQs

What is trenchless sewer repair?

Trenchless sewer repair refers to several technologies that allow us to clean out or repair your sewer pipes without digging up your whole yard. Traditional sewer repair involves digging a trench along the entire length of your sewer line, from your home to where it joins the city’s line in the street. This often involved taking out grass, trees, sidewalks, driveways, and more! With trenchless sewer repair, you can get a long-lasting fix to your sewer problem without all that hassle and expense. 

How do you know what is going on in my sewer without digging it up to take a look?

We’ll send a small camera on a flexible cable down the entire length of your sewer line. Our camera gives us a clear, 360-degree view of your entire sewer line. It allows us to see any clogs in the line, cracks or breaks in the pipe, or other potential problems with the line. It also allows us to determine the exact location of the problems so we can target our repairs accordingly. 

What is hydro jetting?

Hydro jetting involves shooting a controlled, concentrated stream of water into your pipes. We can direct this stream so that it targets the scum and scale that has built up on the sides of your pipes or so that it decimates clogs in the lines. The water is so concentrated that it can break up even tough clogs, including some tree roots. After hydro jetting, your clog won’t just be gone, but the insides of your pipes will look brand new. 

What is cured-in-place piping (CIPP)?

Cured-in-place piping technology allows us to reline your sewer pipes without having to dig up the line. We turn the liner inside out and cover the inside with epoxy. Then, we run the liner into your line until it covers the crack or break in your sewer pipe. Our machines turn the pipe liner right side out again, allowing the epoxy to adhere to the existing pipe. Then we heat the inside of the liner so the epoxy can form a lasting seal. When we’re done, your pipe will have a brand new interior lining. 

How long will CIPP last?

The project duration for your CIPP repair will vary based on the products we use, the length of pipe replaced, and other factors. However, many products come with a 10-year warranty and you can actually expect them to last for 50 years or more. The liner resists corrosion by water and other substances and provides a barrier that repels tree roots, too. 

Will trenchless sewer repair save me money?

Most of the time, trenchless sewer repair is not only the fastest and easiest way to fix your sewer line, but it’s also the cheapest, too. While we cannot quote a price for your project until we know what is going on in your sewer line and what you need to have done, experience has shown that trenchless repairs almost always cost less than those done via traditional methods. 

 

Trenchless repair is cheaper simply because you don’t have to pay to have your yard dug up and you don’t have to pay to have it put back together when we’re done, either. Eliminating these costs means that all you pay for is the repair itself.

    Apollo jetted the basement drain line in our old 1927 Portland house. The line has been backing up thru the floor drain for a while. The technician cleared out the line with the hydro-jet, and it’s running great now. On-time and professional!

    Apollo Drain was on time, professional, and very knowledgeable. He took the time to inspect our rain drain to our dry well and do everything he could to alleviate the issue. I would highly recommend Apollo, they were informative and straight forward. Honesty is obviously a value they uphold for their customers.
