    grease buildup in drain

    anyone had experience with some preventative procedures to alleviate grease build up in restaurant drains. i know that lye [sodium hydroxide] plus grease = soap, but does it work in drains?--nbc

    Try this:

    Natural Enviro 1000 - Grease Trap Solution...
    www.naturalenviro.com

    This is a bacterial type product.Does a fairly good job.No lye.
    I used to use Chloroben PT. don't know if it is still available or not.

    Install...

    a grease trap and have it cleaned on regular intervals. Is a grease trap not a code requirement in your area for this application/use?

    Lye (sodium hydroxide) based crystal drain cleaners should be effective on grease deposits however.

    if it isn't

    code in your area to have a grease trap on a commercial kitchen (e.g. restaurant, school, etc.) it should be. In any event, do install one -- at the very least on the dishwasher drain and any sinks used for cleaning or dishwashing.

    And Then Make Sure It Is Cleaned Out! Can't tell you how many grease traps I have inspected which were never cleaned out.

    You'll need a drain cleaner as the other guys have mentioned to get rid of the gook that's already there...

    Trust me: you'll have much better drains -- and the guys at the sewer plant will be very appreciative! Of course, if you have a septic tank, the guys who clean it will hate you, as they won't have to pump it so often!
