Why You Should Never Pour Grease Down the DrainAugust 28, 2020 3:36 pm
Nothing is better than a big breakfast on a weekend morning! Eggs & bacon served up for the family! But now you have excess grease from your meal. While you may think to just dump it down the sink & it’ll just disappear like water does, that is not the case!
When pouring grease down the drain, it makes its way through your pipes and into the sewer, causing buildups while mixing with other chemicals within. But while it can cause damage to the sewer, your pipes can also clog, which is a more direct issue for your household. As grease cools, it solidifies and can be very difficult to clean off. Imagine this happening inside your pipes every time you dump grease down it. So going forward to avoid clogged pipes, instead of pouring your grease down the sink, dump it in a cup, wait for it to cool, and through it in the trash!
