Grease is one of those substances that isn’t meant to go down the drain. The reason is that when grease cools it solidifies causing nasty clogs in the pipes. The only real way to remove one without doing further damage is to hire a qualified plumber which could cost hundreds of dollars or more and cause your restaurant to be shut down for hours during repair. The best way to avoid these frustrating clogs is to install a heavy duty grease trap.
To understand what to avoid putting in your septic system it’s important to first understand how one works. A septic system is a pretty simple system in terms of function. Essentially the wastewater from your home or restaurant (bathroom, kitchen, toilet, etc.) flows into a septic tank where, over time, it separates and is broken down. Solids stay in the tank to dissolve and liquids flow out and into a drain field where microorganisms help break it down as it seeps into the ground. The fact that liquids eventually make their way to the ground and into the groundwater makes it extremely important to avoid flushing certain things into the septic tank. Here’s a list of what should never be put into a septic system.
Pre-winter renovations are an excellent way to stave off the cold of the winter months. By installing new insulation, piping, and roofing you can ensure that the heat is staying inside the home and the cold is staying out. But planning a renovation and completing one are two very different things. To avoid surprises, plan your pre-winter renovation as best you can and don’t forget the dumpsters.
Most of us don’t think about grease traps on a daily basis but if you’re a restaurant owner then it’s a big concern. It’s incredibly important to not only have a grease trap installed but to maintain it as well. As the fall and winter months roll around and the temperature drops you may find yourself wondering, “Is my grease trap prepared for cold weather?”
