Grease down drains on Septic

Wednesday, January 9th, 2019

Just a friendly reminder to never put grease down your drains. Especially if you’re on septic. Believe me, there’s not enough water in your hot water heater to melt this grease. Not that you would want to anyways, the next step from here is the drainfield. Imagine what grease would do to dirt.

Save your money, we would rather have normal, routine, septic pumping jobs than this. This really does create a lot more work. More work and harder the job, the cost increases. Plus with our treatment plant rules and regulations, this load cannot go to them. It will be rejected, and we’ll have to truck this load all over 2 states to find someone who’ll accept it.

Kitchen Grease in Septic Tank

Wednesday, March 28th, 2012

Here’s what happens when grease is added to the septic tank.  The PH drops and all septic tank bacteria dies, and this happens.  Let me tell you that this is never ever supposed to look like this.  The damage done to this sytem is really expensive.

No grease down the septic tank ever.  Or this can happen


Thanksgiving November 24, 2011

Happy Thanksgiving Friends,

Yesterday we had three emergencies and one today.  Pretty good.  But one to note was yesterday, we had someone who poured all their cooking grease down the kitchen sink.  I feel so bad for someone when that happens.  See the homeowner didn’t pour the grease down.  They have never done that in the past.  But a family guest was helping in the kitchen and has always heard that, “chase the grease with a lot of hot water.”  Remember there is not enough hot water in a 50 gallon hot water heater to raise the temperature in the septic tank even one degree.  Simple, all grease goes into a can, and get’s put under the sink to harden.  Then, it goes into the garbage.

I hope everyone has a great Turkey day, and has an extra helping for me.  Safe travels,


Thanks a million, and God bless
