Fat, Oils and Grease (FOG) aren’t just bad for your arteries; they’re bad for your drain and sewer lines too. Restaurants and other food service institutions generate literally tons of cooking oils, grease and food wastes every day. If this waste is not managed properly, it can cause major environmental problems.
Liquid waste containing oil and grease dumped directly into the sewer can block the system and cause wastewater to back up into your facility. This causes a disruption in your business and a health hazard for you and your customers.
If your business generates greasy wastewater, you can reduce the likelihood of a sewer back-up by adopting a preventive maintenance plan.
HYDRO-MOLE can eliminate these problems with a routine maintenance plan using fast acting emulsifier specially formulated for our jetting equipment to open block pipelines. Once the lines are open and ready to maintain, we can provide you with a highly concentrated microorganism that breaks down and digests (FOG) to keep your pipes clear.
Roots grow in and around pipes left untreated. ROOTX kills roots without harming pipes, wastewater treatment operations or above-ground vegetation.
Roots are another frequent cause of sewer backup. The roots of shrubs and trees naturally seek any water source. The roots probe the sewer line seeking any opening, such as a crack or poorly sealed joint. Once the sewer line is penetrated, the roots grow and block the line.
HYDRO-MOLE can eliminate these problems by cutting the root and applying a root killing foam that will decay the root without harming the plant above the ground.
The most cost-effective thing you can do for your building’s energy efficiency is to have your HVAC systems condenser and evaporator coils inspected annually and cleaned as necessary.
Dirty, unmaintained coils force compressors to run longer and work harder than necessary, increasing energy usage and utility costs while decreasing component life and comfort of the occupants. According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), dirty condenser and evaporator coils can significantly increase HVAC energy usage and other associated utility costs.
The U.S. Department of Energy states that “a dirty condenser coil can increase compressor energy consumption by at least 30%. “ A plugged evaporator coil decreases airflow, resulting in reduced heat transfer and a degradation of the dehumidification process. These issues can cause overall air quality to decline and systems to fail and result in decreased life expectancy of motors due to increased heat while running.
With the HVAC system running on cool mode, there are 2 places where heat exchange occurs:
1. Condensing Unit Coils
2. Evaporator Coils
Dirt and dust on these coils act as unintended insulators and reduce the free flow of air through the coils, resulting in a decreased rate of heat transfer between the coil and the air.
Further investigation show that not servicing dirty systems can lead to misdiagnosing common HVAC problems and /or may result in faulty or unnecessary repairs. Typically this results in increased system cost and premature system failure.
