Don’t let a grease blockage slow down your production! At Trouble Shooters, our restaurant customers know they can count on us to keep their restaurant drains running problem free by being on our hydro jetting maintenance calendar. We have over 25 years of experience clearing blockages and keeping drains running using hydro jetting. From bad grease blockages to simple maintenance programs, Trouble Shooters can do it all. We own and operate our own hydro jetting trucks ensuring top-tier service whenever our customers call.
We have been in the business a long time, 70 years to be exact, and have witnessed a lot of drain problems in restaurants. The most
common and aggravating issue is grease. Restaurants with high production are believed to produce an average of 150 to 250 pounds of grease per week – that’s up to 1000 pounds per month or 13,000 pounds per year!
In our experience, it is absolutely essential for every restaurant to have a properly working grease trap. Furthermore, that grease trap should be on a cleaning maintenance schedule with a company that can properly dispose of the grease. If either of these two maintenance items is missed, there is a high probability the drains will eventually clog and a grease blockage will happen.
Once there is grease in the drains, it builds up to a point where it solidifies and will not let water pass. This blockage is extremely hard to clear properly with a snake or other drain cleaning equipment. A snake will essentially just puncture a hole in the hardened grease and temporarily allow water to flow through. The best solution is hydro jetting.
