Stop Wasting Money on Expensive Chemicals
Commercial kitchen operators face issues with their sinks, drains and grease traps getting clogged with food solids. To combat this problem, some resort to using chemicals such as Liquid Plumber or Drano to clear these clogs. Others add bacteria or enzymes to their grease traps hoping these products will eat and break down these food solids.
But the problems with chemicals and enzymes are that they can damage your pipes. They are expensive. And they only work on organic materials. They won't work on straws, wrappers or silverware. They are banned by many local municipalities because they cause problems in the sewers.
And they eventually get overloaded and can't keep your pipes cleared. When you end up with clogged sinks, drains and grease traps, things grind things to a halt in your dish room and dishes start piling up.
A better solution is to prevent that food debris from going down your pipes in the first place with The Drain Strainer™. Our strainer drawer removes the food debris while still allowing the water to pass through so your sinks still drain quickly without clogging the pipes.

Bacteria and Enzyme Grease Trap Solutions Can't Keep Up
Working in a commercial kitchen is stressful even under the best of circumstances. Orders have to get out on time, dishes need to be washed quickly, and there often isn't a moment to spare for dealing with unexpected messes and surprises like a clogged sink or an overflowing grease interceptor. Unfortunately, these are all-too-common occurrences in many commercial kitchens.
In an attempt to cut down on grease trap pumping cost, some operators try using grease interceptor cleaners, such as chemicals, bacteria or enzymes to break down the food particles inside their grease interceptor. Not only are these alternatives expensive because you have to continuously buy them, but if your commercial kitchen has a lot of food waste going down your pipes, these alternative grease interceptor cleaners can only do so much before they get overloaded and stop working.
Grease traps are designed with a very specific purpose in mind: to separate grease from wastewater. Without a wet waste collector as part of your drainage system, your grease interceptor is simply not equipped to handle solid food particles. As a result, many restaurants, kitchens, and bars end up spending a fortune on harsh chemical cleaners. They wait until their grease traps are overflowing, then pour chemicals, bacteria, or enzymes into them and hope for the best. This solution is only sometimes effective. When too much food waste, or any kind of non-organic waste, becomes built up in the pipes, it won't work.

The Drain Strainer™ is a food solid separator that allows the water from your sinks to filter through its strainer drawer while capturing all the solids that normally clog your grease trap. See our "What It Is" page for a full description of how this professional grease trap food strainer works.
The Drain Strainer™ is the perfect solution for commercial kitchens that require extra help keeping solids out of their grease traps and drains.
