The Importance Preventive Jetting Maintenance for Your Business
The city of London plans to put part of its biggest “fatberg” on display at the Museum of London next year. This mound of waste made of grease, oil, fat, wet wipes and sanitary products was finally removed from the city sewers. The fatberg was described as being a long as the Tower Bridge (800 feet long) and as heavy as eleven double decker buses (approximately 200 tons). These form when too much disgusting material gets dumped down the drain or flushed into the sewers. To read more about this removal, click here. Blockages like this can be detrimental to many because without the proper flow of water through a sewer system, there is a greater chance of experiencing a backup or a flooded sewer system. As this article points out, everyone needs to be responsible and take preventive jetting maintenance seriously.
One of the key culprits identified as creators of this fatberg were restaurants. These commercial facilities release a lot of grease into the drains when they are washing dishes. Grease traps can help to prevent some of this and are an important component of responsible commercial waste management. However, grease traps do not necessarily take care of all of the blockages in a system. Over time grease and fat residue can coat the lines and drains and limit water flow. Although many commercial facilities recognize the need to use preventive jetting maintenance to maintain and clean their grease traps, they may not recognize the equally important need to keep their drains clean.
