Does it seem like every time you turn around the drains keep clogging or a toilet is clogged in your restaurant? Frequently clogged up plumbing in a restaurant is a sign of one thing – poorly maintained sewer systems. While there are grease traps and other items that help prevent the oil and grease that is notoriously hard on a sewer from getting down there, your sewer system for your restaurant still needs to be maintained.
There is a lot that goes into opening and running a restaurant. However, what a lot of owners tend to overlook is what happens to all the waste. No one thinks of the sewer until it starts to make itself know with problems. One of the most common signs that bigger problems are coming is when the drains start to block up often. You can likely easily get them running again yourself, but if the problem keeps coming back, it is because the sewer itself isn’t getting the regular maintenance that it needs.
Not only should you be cleaning that grease trap out often to prevent sewer problems, but sewer cleaning is needed as well for what doesn’t get caught. Essentially, a plumbing service will calculate how often you need cleaning by calculating the daily use of a grease trap. You may need hydro jetting to clean things up once a quarter, but if you start skipping those appointments, you will notice that things will start to clog up more often again.
