Leaking pipes are a common plumbing problem to have, but putting the repair off for too long can turn into a serious issue. Fortunately, our team at Apollo Drain & Rooter Service has the experience and advanced tools to fix your leaking pipes quickly and effectively.
Signs You Have a Leaking Pipe
It’s not always easy to tell if you have a leak, but here are some common signs to look out for that are all good reasons to give an expert a call.
- Unusually high water bill – if your water bill is higher than usual and your usage hasn’t changed, it may mean there is a leak somewhere in your pipeline.
- Mold/mildew on your property – if you have a leaking pipe, water may be causing damp spots around your property, leading to mold or mildew. This can be a health hazard and cause damage to the interior of your home if you do not repair the source of the problem quickly.
- Cracks in your foundation – older properties begin to crack eventually, but sudden cracking in your foundation could be due to a leak.
- Wet areas – are you noticing discolored areas or wet pockets around your sink, tub, or toilet? This is a common sign that you may have a leak.
How We Detect Your Pipe Leaks
At Apollo Drain & Rooter Service, we specialize in a variety of leak detection services that can detect small and large leaks throughout your pipes. Leak detection can be accomplished through techniques such as slab leak detection or smoke and odor testing.
Slab Leak Detection is a industry-leading method of leak detection that detects leaks throughout the slab or foundation of your property. With leak slab leak detection services, we use state-of-the-art equipment to locate the leak and decide the best way to solve it. Smoke and Odor Testing is a simpler way to detect both small and large leaks within your pipes. Through the smoke and odor testing, we emit one of the two throughout your pipe. The smoke will be visible as we notice the exact spot that is allowing your pipes to leak.
Through both methods of leak detection, your leaking pipe problems will be identified and solved using one of our best solutions.
Solutions to Leaking Pipe Problems
When you have a leaking pipe, the most important thing is that it is taken care of in a timely manner and with a solution that best meets the needs of your Portland, Oregon and Vancouver, Washington pipes. Before your leaking pipes can be restored, they need to be properly cleaned. Hydro jetting is a popular cleaning method that will clear your pipes of any build-up or debris and prepare them for repair. Even the most stubborn clogs, such as tree roots, are no match for this equipment. The hydro jetting process involves a pressurized water hose that we insert into an existing access point in your lines. This hose then sprays water in all directions to clean your pipes and restore water flow.
Once your pipes are cleaned, they can be repaired with our CIPP lining services. Cured-in-Place Pipe Lining is a common solution for weakened pipes that do not need replacement. This process involves coating the interior of your lines with epoxy to restore your pipes flow and give you a water-tight seal.
If your leaking pipe is serious enough to require a replacement, it doesn’t necessarily mean you have to deal with the hassle of excavation. Pipe bursting is a trenchless technology that involves inserting a bursting head into your lines to break away the damaged area and pull in a new pipe seamlessly.

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.

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.
