Some properties in the area may have a hidden plumbing issue that the owners are completely unaware of. The culprit is polybutylene (PB) pipes, which were used for plumbing purposes between the years of 1975 and 1978, until it was discovered that they become brittle and crack over time, so they were subsequently outlawed.
However, the properties that were built during that timeframe may still have PB pipes as a component of their plumbing system. It is only a matter of time until they fail and crack and cause a major leak, which could damage your home or business and cost you a significant amount of money. Have a professional plumber like those on staff at Apollo come out and see if you have PB pipes and are at risk.
Dangers of PB Pipes
Polybutylene was once thought to be a great material to use for piping, but after some time it became obvious that they were faulty because they tend to flake apart and crack. This is no good for plumbing systems or the property itself, because water will leak through and cause damage and a high water bill. Because much of your piping is hidden behind walls or underground, it may be leaking for a while before you ever even notice.

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 Plumbing 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.
