What is Grease Release?

Fats, oils and greases (FOGs) are expected by-products of food preparation, whether on a large scale as found in the food industry, or the incidental amounts caused by residential cooking. When cooking fats, oils and grease are poured down the drain, they tend to collect and stick to household plumbing and sewer lines. Over time blockages occur that lead to sewer backups, sometimes causing sewerage to overflow from plumbing fixtures or sewer system manholes.

A full-service cleaning by a licensed grease interceptor/trap service provider is recommended on a regular basis to ensure that the interceptor/trap is diligently cleaned and inspected. If the grease trap or interceptor is not cleaned regularly, properly maintained, undersized or positioned too far from the fixtures FOGs waste can build up in the waste pipes or sewer lines causing blockages. The FOGs need to be emulsified to clear the drains. Regular machine cleaning or clearing will not effectively clear the FOGs from the drains.

Longbeach Plumbing can apply a grease release to sewer & wastes pipes with our high pressure water jetter which penetrates and softens FOGs. It emulsifies FOGs so that it can’t re-adhere to pipe surfaces eliminating future problems. Grease release effectively reduces FOGs built-up in sewer pipes and helps keep sewers to free flowing conditions. Penetrates and breaks down FOGs into small particles that will not resolidify. It will enhance preventative maintenance programs by coating the pipe with a FOGs repelling barrier to minimize build up. It contains mild surfactants that are biodegradable, non-caustic, and non-corrosive & does not contain phosphates.
