If you run a small restaurant, the last thing you want is for your plumbing to get backed up. You can prevent your plumbing from getting clogged up by keeping your grease out of your drains.
#1 Recycle Your Grease
One of the easiest ways to keep the grease out of your drains is by recycling the grease that is used in your kitchen. In order to do this, you are going to need to set up a system for recycling the grease in your kitchen and get everyone who cooks in your kitchen to use that system.
You are going to want to pour all the grease that is used for cooking in your kitchen into a heat safe container. Then, put the heat safe container inside of your refrigerator or freezer; this will help solidify the grease so that it is not in liquid form and sloshing around.
Then, you are going to need to arrange for a recycling company to pick up all the grease that your kitchen pours out and stores in heat resistant containers.
#2 Scrape Food Off All Plates
Do not just have your dishwashers was off the plates and grind up the food waste in the garbage disposal. Instead, require all of your dishwashers to scrape food off of all plates before cleaning. When washing pots, pans and other cooking dishes, require your dishwashers to use a paper towel to wipe off all the grease. Lots of residual grease can be transferred to your plumbing system through the dish cleaning process.
#3 Use A Food Catcher
Finally, try to reduce your restaurants reliance on using the garbage disposal. Put a food basket or strainer with very fine mesh over all of your kitchen sinks. Hopefully, by using one with very fine mesh, you will be able to catch not only food scraps you don't want going down your plumbing, but residual grease that are still on your pots, pans and plates as well.
The key to saving your plumbing is to recycle your grease and catch it before it goes down the drains. Try to recycle all of your major grease that you use for cooking via your local trash company and try to catch and clean all other grease before it gets into you sink. Grease should be recycled and thrown-out, not put down your sink. Work with your local trash company to figure out how to effectively recycle your kitchen grease.
If you do end up with clogged drains, don't hesitate to reach out to a commercial plumber, such as Bilz Plumbing & Mechanical Inc.

Before I could gather my senses and turn the water off, I resembled my dog after she jumps into a pool of water. To avoid the wet dog look in the future, I plan to hire a professional plumber to take care of my faulty faucet.
