Our Lovely Smelling Sewer Drain was Plugged up With Grease and Fat

Some of the worst sewer lines are in restaurants.

  • I often have sewer line repair and drain troubles at the restaurants downtown and most of those sites empty their grease down the sinks and in the dishwasher.

All of that grease and sludge goes somewhere and occasionally parts of the grease and sludge remain in the pipe. As more grease and sludge comes through, the stuff builds up over time. Occasionally the grease can completely block the sewer pipe causing a backup. I went to a chicken and fish restaurant down the corner from the commercial plumbing business and I was there for brunch when the manager called the store to request services. I knew something was up in the restaurant, because there was quite a commotion and stir going on. Everyone was talking in whispers and the manager was walking around with a weird look on his face. My boss called me on the phone to see where I was at and I told him I was finishing up with brunch, and then he told me about the commercial plumbing job. I told our boss that I was already at the restaurant and I figured something was going on with the plumbing comment because there was a big sign on the lavatory that said closed. I finished our chicken and fries and after that I asked that manager what was going on and how I could help. The sewer line was plugged up with grease and fat and all of the grease and fat needed to be removed in order for the sewer drain to run freely.
