It’s okay to pour grease down the drain if I run hot water with it.
Wrong! This only moves the grease further down the sewer line. Eventually the water will cool and the grease will begin to solidify and coat the pipes.
It’s okay to pour liquid oils down the drain.
Wong! Liquid cooking oils float on water and easily adhere to sewer pipes. The oily film can collect food particles and other solids that will create a blockage.
As long as I can use the garbage disposal it’s okay to put fat, oil, and grease down the drain.
Wong! Using the garbage disposal only grinds particles up before passing them into the sewer pipes. It does not prevent build-up or blockages.
If I use dish soap while pouring the fat, oil, and grease down the drain it will break it up and allow it to pass through the pipes.
Wong! Dish soap only temporarily breaks up the fat, oil, and grease. Further down the sewer line all that grease, oil, and fat will begin to congeal and cause a blockage.
