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.
