We Analyze the Customer Situation

Is there a history of problems? What problems have they had, and how have they been treating these problems? Can we determine the cause(s)?

Are there any issues with the mechanical/plumbing design or condition? Are the grease traps the right size and designed well? Are they clean and functioning properly? Are there visible leaks or missing or broken parts?

How are the operational practices? Are they scraping dishes before washing? Are they pouring used oil or grease directly into the drains? Are there missing drain covers or other obvious “workarounds” or “time-savers” in use?

We Determine Best Solutions

Reactive problem-solving is required for big issues like backups, leaks, drain flies and strong odors. Sometimes you can handle this, sometimes you must call in a plumber or other service professional for additional expertise.

Preventive maintenance is best for long-term solutions and when problems have just been resolved or are minor. This can include bacterial treatment in restrooms and for drain problems like FOG, sugars and starches and solids. It can include automated odor control and oil recovery/recycling.

Education and training on Best Practices increases efficiency and decreases problems. We teach better management principles and industry Best Practices for many verticals. We can teach the basics of FOG, and why and how drain line problems occur from FOG, sugars and starches and solids. You’d be surprised how little knowledge is out there…

We Introduce or Promote Compliance Programs

Many private companies need to monitor their grease traps to keep grease and oil and solids at or below specific safe levels. Most communities are passing legislation to require monitoring, imposing hefty fines and surcharges on businesses that are out of compliance or just aren’t monitoring and reporting accurately. Our patented DipStick Pro equipment is the recognized leader in this area! Our monitoring can usually save money for businesses by scheduling grease traps pumpouts only as often as really necessary and to make sure that the pumpouts are effective and the job is truly complete.

Some municipalities are still using public employees to do compliance monitoring, but most are putting that responsibility onto the businesses or will in the near future. We help design and implement FOG regulations and compliance programs to ensure effectiveness, decreasing maintenance and repair expenses.
