Apollo Drain and Rooter Service has innovative sewer repair technology to ensure premium results for our customers in Tigard, Oregon. We can repair or replace a problem sewer line at a fraction of the time and cost of other options, for a truly hassle-free experience.
Apollo specializes in modern methods of subsurface sewer repairs that are designed to be more efficient and less costly than traditional techniques. These systems are often referred to as “trenchless” sewer repairs because they eliminate the long, deep trench that was used to reach the pipe. Instead, we can fully repair or replace a damaged sewer line through the existing channel of the old pipe. Specialized tools are designed to fit inside of this narrow tunnel, where the entire sewer repair process can be completed without damage to the property.
Advantages of Trenchless Sewer Repair
Our trenchless technology offers multiple benefits over the standard dig-and-replace method for residents and businesses in Tigard, OR. Trenchless systems are widely recognized as gentler on the environment because they preserve plant and animal life, eliminate waste deposited in landfills, and prevent soil erosion. They’re also more efficient, eliminating the need for excess workers, equipment, and materials that drive up costs and extend the repair time.
Less labor and materials coupled with the elimination of property damage and subsequent restoration costs results in substantial savings, often reducing the cost of a sewer repair project by 30% to 40% and in many cases, more. Trenchless repairs are easier on our customers’ budget, their property, and their schedule, and that’s why Apollo has chosen trenchless technology as our method of choice.
Cured-In-Place Pipe Lining
For sewer pipe repair, you can take advantage of our trenchless pipe lining, called CIPP or CIPP lining. In this system, we rebuild the pipe from the inside by creating a cured-in-place pipe out of a specifically-engineered, corrosion-proof epoxy. Our expert trenchless technician inserts a soft, flexible sleeve coated with the epoxy into the damaged pipe and then expands it, shaping the epoxy into a new pipe and adhering it to the inside of the damaged one. The leakproof, root-resistant CIPP cures in several hours to completely restore the pipe to like-new condition. The CIPP not only resists rust and roots, but also withstands extreme weather conditions and seismic activity damage, as well.
Pipe Replacements in Tigard
Full pipe replacements are completed using our innovative pipe bursting system, which allows a damaged pipe dozens of feet long to be removed and a new one laid in its place with only a small, 4- to 6-foot hole at either end. The process is made possible by a small, pneumatic bursting head that fits inside the old pipe, where it breaks apart the old pipe with outward force while it moves along. At the same time, the bursting head pulls a new HDPE in behind it, which is then connected. Pipe bursting reduces a major week-long sewer repair project to as little as a day and a fraction of the cost.
