Reduce and Eliminate Drainage Complications
Waste food, fats, and grease in commercial kitchen sinks and pipe work can quickly build-up. This results in unpleasant odours and often leads to expensive drain blockages and overflowing sinks.
Grease sludge can harbour pathogenic bacteria and therefore the risk of contamination is increased.
The disruption from drainage obstructions can have costly implications for your business and your reputation.
Under the Water Industry Act 1991 section 111 it is a criminal offence to discharge into the public sewers any matter which may interfere with the free flow of the sewerage system.
Mechanical cleaning methods such as high pressure water jetting and rodding are often unsuitable and may be a source of bacteria contamination if not operated with care.
