An Effective 3 Compartment Sink Strainer For Your Commercial Kitchen
Drain clogs in a commercial kitchen are unsanitary and can lead to costly repairs. Without an effective 3 compartment sink strainer to keep food solids out of your floor drains, the problem often recurs.
A properly functioning dish area is the backbone of an efficient commercial kitchen or bar. When your sinks back up, it can shut down your entire operation. Don’t take this chance any longer.
The Drain Strainer is a powerful and cost-effective way to keep your pipes free of food debris. It’s an excellent replacement for your commercial garbage disposal and installation is a fraction of the cost of repair.
Here are six of the most important reasons why you need a three compartment sink strainer in your commercial kitchen.
1. A Drain Strainer Saves You Money
Paying a professional plumber to unclog floor drains, wall drains, and grease traps is inconvenient and expensive. Commercial plumbers charge an average of almost $100 per hour, plus parts and materials. Factor in business downtime, loss of productivity, and employee wages, and it’s easy to see how quickly the costs add up.
Chemical and enzyme treatments can damage pipes over time. The solution is only temporary, and it’s expensive to purchase the materials for multiple treatments. To make matters worse, most chemical drain cleaning solutions are completely ineffective on man-made materials like straws and plastic wrap.
2. Reduce Potential Safety and Sanitary Problems
A commercial sink strainer removes the chances of accidentally grinding up something you shouldn’t. A commercial garbage disposal can result in mangled silverware. Employees may cut themselves trying to remove the silverware, and if a piece makes it to the front of the house, a customer could be seriously injured.
Backed up drains can also cause an array of safety and sanitary issues including:
- Foul odors
- Vermin and insects
- Slip and fall accidents
- Health code violations
3. Protect the Environment
The Environmental Protection Agency’s Clean Water Act mandates fat, oil, and grease (FOG) prevention programs. As a result, many municipalities have banned commercial garbage disposals in an attempt to keep food out of the sewer systems.
Avoid Expensive Fines
More cities are expected to follow this trend in the future. Government agencies are cracking down on disposal methods, and businesses found guilty of wastewater violations can result in hefty fines.
Our commercial sink drain system helps commercial kitchens stay ahead of the regulatory curve.
Create Composting Opportunities
Installing The Drain Strainer and catching food in the strainer drawer allows you to throw it in the trash or use it for commercial composting. In some cases, this can create additional revenue by selling the composted materials to individuals, municipalities, nurseries, or farms.
4. Lower Maintenance Requirements
The Drain Strainer’s removable drawer is easy to clean. The system is simple and doesn’t require water or electricity to function.
Our 3-compartment sink strainer doesn’t have any moving parts that can break. There are also no seals that can crack and leak. This significantly reduces potential ongoing maintenance requirements.
Fast and Effective Draining
A Drain Strainer installed in between your commercial sinks and the grease trap catches food and separates it from the water. Keeping solid waste out of your plumbing lines protects the system.
In-sink drain screens tend to slow the sink draining process. Frustrated employees may decide to bypass these systems, leaving you open to problems. The Drain Strainer’s under-sink system ensures that your sinks still drain quickly and efficiently, every time.
5. Easy Installation
The Drain Strainer is one of the easiest systems to install in a commercial kitchen. The adjustable legs allow you to set it to the perfect height for your sinks. Bolting the feet to the floor gives extra stability for ultimate safety.
For your 3 compartment sink, you can install The Drain Strainer Compact so that multiple sinks can drain into a single location. This cuts costs even further and offers the ultimate in efficiency.
