Municipal drain cleaning is a crucial part of keeping a city and its residents healthy. At Apollo Plumbing Service we understand this importance and strive to maintain safe, highly efficient systems to fulfill the needs of its people.
In Gresham, rain can cause multiple problems for municipal storm drainage systems. Contaminants, tree branches, and large amounts of soil can end up disposed of in storm systems. This can lead to blockages that ultimately impact the communities health and wellbeing. Worse still, blockages in waste disposal systems that contain domestic wastewater can create hazardous conditions in which biological materials can be detected by the community. These can be created by material build up over time, deformed pipes, or a large tree root infestation within the drainage systems.
In order to ensure the best possible health of municipal drains, we highly suggest reoccurring video camera inspections. Our state of the art cameras are equipped to be placed in drains, and are attached with a camera to show any problems that may be arising in the city’s drainage systems. A service technician will direct the camera on site and be able to give any diagnoses of problems, as well as potential issues in the future. By doing so, drains can be cleaned out and repaired before much larger issues present themselves, effectively minimizing the risk of blockages or problems in busier months. This process remains the same to properly diagnose itself should a problem occur and needed to be treated immediately.
When a problem is diagnosed in the drainage systems,Apollo Plumbing Service has the tools and techniques to handle the job efficiently. Hydro Jetting is one of them. Hydro Jetting is a process in which highly pressurized water is inserted into the drains. With a PSI of 3,500 this water can cut through any debris or blockage, including tree roots, and restore the drain to its full diameter without damaging the inside of the pipes. This is all done without the need the dig to get to the problem area, saving much needed time. By eliminating clogs quickly it is a powerful tool that ensures a well cleaned drain.
Another tool available to our team is Vacuum Excavation. While this process typically is used in the precise clearing out of trenches in order to get to pipe lines, it also can be applied in the same way within drains to clear out large blockages, or to vacuum away waste that is creating problems. This process employs high-pressure water to cut and break down soil while a vacuum removes the sludge and places it into a tank that is connected to a truck. With the ability to carry away large amounts of sludge it is a great option for heavy duty waste removal and can solve many drainage problems.

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!"
