Septic Tank Grease Traps And Their Importance

Posted by | Blog, Septic Tank Care | No Comments

septic tank grease trapWe have always talked about not pouring grease down the drain. Oil and grease solidify at low temperatures and that’s just what’s going to happen if they stay too long inside the pipes. As you can see, the temperature inside the pipes is generally cooler.  And for that very reason, these waste substances stick to the walls of the pipes and result to clogs. You’ll know what to expect next. You won’t be able to use your plumbing fixtures like you used to. Your daily routine will be hampered. You’ll be greatly inconvenienced. Fortunately, there are such things as grease traps.

Grease traps? What are they?

Grease traps are also called as grease interceptors. These are efficient plumbing devices that are designed to block the access of grease, wax, oil, fact and other types of debris into your home’s septic tank or the public sewer where your house is hooked to. These waste materials are prime culprits for clogs and that’s already one good reason why they shouldn’t get into the system. Aside from preventing clogs, grease interceptors are also designed to filter out the greasy elements and separate them from the wastewater. This way, your septic tank or the public sewer won’t get filled with grease and just deal with sewage.

Do you need grease traps in your property?

Yes, building codes mandate the installation of grease traps to guarantee that sewage will be pre-treated prior to its entry in the septic tank or sewer system. These devices are not only required among residential structures but also in commercial establishments as well.

Grease Trap Maintenance

To ensure that the grease trap functions optimally, it also requires consistent care and cleaning. Here’s how professionals clean the traps.

  1. The grease interceptor’s lids will be removed using a crow bar or any similar tool. This should be done carefully to guarantee that the gaskets located under the grease traps’ lids won’t get damaged.
  2. When the covers are removed, their components will be removed, too. The plumbers need access to the very containers.
  3. Once the lid and its components are detached, the plumber will make use of a measuring stick or a wooden dowel that will be inserted into the grease trap. The stick or dowel will measure the amount of grease, fat, oil and wax that the trap has intercepted and stored in its container.
  4. The measurement will then be recorded because it will be used as a reference in the future, in the event of another cleaning service or maintenance appointment.
  5. After the measurement is taken, the liquid substances inside the trap will be scooped out with a bucket.
  6. Afterward, the solid waste materials will be removed, too. They will be transferred to another container (leak-free) and then disposed properly.
  7. When the traps have been emptied, they will be thoroughly cleaned with soap and water.
  8. After cleaning, they will be re-assembled.

Why You Should Hire Commercial Plumbing Contractors

Posted by | Blog, Commercial Plumbing | No Comments

commercial plumbing contractorsIf you have a business with a physical location such as a restaurant, an office or a store, you should never hesitate in hiring commercial plumbing contractors. While you can save money on DIY projects, you cannot disregard the benefits of hiring experienced, licensed and insured plumbers. They have spent so much time taking on a plumbing course; passed the examination to get their licenses and honed their skills through years of experience. In other words, they’ll surely get the job done with excellence while ensuring that your place of business remains safe.

Common Plumbing Services You’ll Need For Your Business

1. Plumbing Installations

If you’re in the process of constructing a new structure for your business, you should only rely on trusted plumbing professionals to install the plumbing system for you. They’ll ensure that your clean water lines and your drainage lines are laid out correctly. They’ll also guarantee compliance with local building and plumbing codes. This way, you’ll acquire the necessary permit to proceed with the construction or renovation. Remember, appliances like garbage disposals and water heaters should be set up properly to prevent accidents and damages in your property. Other plumbing components such as backflow preventers are only installed, inspected and maintained by certified plumbing professionals.

2. Remodeling

If, on the other hand, you’re doing business in an old structure, licensed plumbers need to check the plumbing system first. They have to inspect the drainage lines and make sure that the sewage will be disposed properly. They will also check if the septic tank is still in good condition or if the property is connected to a clog-free sewer line. If there are problems with the old plumbing pipes and fixtures, they should be remodeled. And by remodeling, we mean that plumbers may need to change the pipes, the fixtures or completely move the plumbing.

3. Sewer and Drain Maintenance and Repair

Another plumbing service that you’ll need for your business is sewer maintenance and / or repair. Damaged, clogged or broken sewer and drain pipes are common issues that every property owner should attend to right away. Sewer pipes are often neglected and are, in fact, only paid attention to when problems arise. Don’t let backups and clogged drainage systems ruin your business. Hire licensed plumbers to guarantee that your sewer lines are at tip-top shape.

5. Fixture Installation and Repair

Fixtures wear out and get totally damaged in the end. Faucet threads get loose. Toilets clog and its parts will sooner or later get worn out, too. Sinks turn ugly. These should all be replaced especially if your place of business allows customers to make use of the bathroom. Or, in the case of restaurants, the kitchen plays a major role.

Water Heating System Maintenance Tips For The Homeowner

Posted by | Blog, Water Heater Installation & Maintenance | No Comments

water heatingRegular inspections and maintenance will do wonders for your water heating system. In fact, they will even prolong the life of your water heater. So if you are concerned about your investment, you should ensure consistent care of this plumbing appliance. Here are valuable tips to help you!

1. Shut the power off and turn the cold water supply valve off, too. Put a bucket right under the pipe that’s attached to the water heater’s T&P valve. This is found at the side or on top of the heating unit’s tank. Carefully lift the T&P valve’s tab so that you can let some water escape from it. Afterward, let go. If you notice that water still continues to flow out, you have to drain the tank half way. Once you’re done, just remove the screw of the old T&P valve using a wrench. Don’t forget to install a new one.

2. Another maintenance task that you can perform is to attach a hose to the water heater tank’s drain cock. It will let a few gallons of water flow out. Afterward, put a socket onto the hexagonal head of the rod that’s either found on top of the heater or under the top place. Remove the rod next.  Replace the anode rod with a new one. Make sure that you’ll wrap it with Teflon tape before you install it then tighten it to prevent it from falling into the tank.

3.  Flush the tank completely this time. Doing so will get rid of the sediments that have already accumulated at the bottom of the tank. Open the cold water supply valve for a short time to remove the buildup. Repeat this process until the water that will flow out of the hose is already clean. Shut the drain cock off and refill the tank.

4. Just to ensure that your tank lasts long, you have to monitor its temperature setting. Make sure that the temp won’t be set to more than 120 degrees Fahrenheit. Also remember that lowering the thermostat will cut down the water heater’s operating costs.

5. To get the most benefits out of your water heater, you’ll have to insulate its pipes. The insulation will keep the water hot, therefore reducing the amount of standby heat loss. Another advantage of the insulation is the prevention of condensation which commonly occurs during the summer season. For best results, you might want to insulate the very tank as well.
