Fats, Oil and Grease (FOG) Control

  • Our bioremediation process uses live vegetative bacteria (“good bacteria”) to eat fats, oil and grease (FOG) in the drains – like probiotics for the business! This passes less FOG through the drain lines, and the by-products are just water and CO2. We introduce the bacteria manually or automatically into the drain lines on a regular basis to maintain optimal effectiveness.
  • Mechanical cleaning methods may also be offered as part of our service or we can refer local service providers.
  • Our Oil Recovery Unit (ORU) is an ingenious, compact and cost-effective device that recovers oil for recycling before it enters the drain line. Customers may get payment for this recycled oil, helping to offset the cost of our services!
  • Grease trap monitoring and maintenance ensures the effectiveness of the required grease traps and confirms compliance with local ordinances and regulation. This may also allow the grease traps to be pumped out less often and makes sure that pumping is being completed effectively, reducing service costs!
  • We teach and monitor management Best Practices, which helps our clients help us reduce drain line and odor problems.

FATBERGS

Wikipedia defines a fatberg as “a congealed mass in a sewer system formed by the combination of non-biodegradable solid matter, such as wet wipes, and congealed grease or cooking fat. Fatbergs became a problem in the 2010s in England, because of aging Victorian sewers and the rise in usage of disposable (so-called flushable) cloths.”

“Grease and fat blockages can cause sanitary sewer overflows, in which sewage is discharged into the environment without treatment. In the United States, almost half of all sewer blockages are caused by grease.”

“Fatbergs can be mitigated through public awareness campaigns about flushable waste and grease traps for filtration at the source. Campaigns have been launched against wet wipes because of their effect on sewer systems.”

“Fatbergs occur in sewer systems around the globe, in cities and smaller towns. Giant fatbergs have blocked sewers in London, New York, Denver, Valencia and Melbourne.”

Sugars and Starches Control

We have different strains of “good bacteria” that eat sugars and starches in drain lines from beverage dispensers, baking and other food preparation, etc. We introduce the bacteria manually or automatically into the drain lines on a regular basis to maintain optimal effectiveness.

Solids Control

Solutions for restaurants, coffee shops, hair salons and other types of businesses include Fine Particle Strainers and LockDown Strainers which keep most solids from going down the drains.

Urine Control

Different strains of “good bacteria” that eat uratic salts from urine in restroom drain lines, keeping them flowing freely and controlling odors, too. We introduce the bacteria manually or automatically into the drain lines on a regular basis to maintain optimal effectiveness. This is not an acid or corrosive to pipes like most other products on the market!

Odor Control

We have developed products that don’t just cover up offensive odors, they bond to odor molecules to blanket or insulate them, effectively eliminating the odor. We introduce the products by spraying manually or automatically with misters or foggers for optimal effectiveness. Treatment areas can include drain lines, grease traps, restrooms, production areas and outdoor dumpsters and loading docks.

Drain Fly Control

Another variety of “good bacteria” that gets rid of the environment where drain flies, also called fruit flies, sewer gnats or sink flies, breed! This is manually applied, and odor control is included in the product.

Compliance

Private companies and municipalities can use our DipStick Pro to measure grease and solids in grease traps, ensuring that the traps are performing and well-maintained and that the business is adhering to regulations, avoiding fines and surcharges. Our franchisees also offer this monitoring and reporting as a regular service.
