Have You Implemented Your FOG (Fats, Oils & Greases) Control Management Program Yet?

Drainbo’s Environmentally-Conscious, Chemical-Free Drain Cleaning System Offers Restaurants Cost-Effective Method For Meeting New Governmental Mandates
In California and increasingly nationwide, food service establishments are facing strict state and local governmental mandates to implement FOG (Fats, Oils & Grease) Source Control Programs designed to reduce unhealthful discharges into municipal sewer systems. Not surprisingly, restaurants and other public food service venues are huge contributors (up to 80% by most estimates) to this often overlooked, yet highly-pervasive environmental concern.
The result: not only blockages, spills and dangerous chemicals within city water systems and nearby waterways, but clogged kitchen drains within restaurants that often require frequent jetting procedures and other costly repairs.
Consider these troubling facts:
FOG most often derives from meats, sauces, gravy, dressings, deep-fried foods, baked goods, cheeses, butter and other common cooking products placed into sinks. Studies in several major cities and municipalities have concluded that FOG is one of the primary causes of sanitary sewer blockages and that most sewage problems are preventable

Traditional toxic drain-cleaning systems and products heat up FOG on-site and send it to local water processing plants, where it cools, re-congeals and re-clogs, endangering the plant, sewer passageways, and often beaches and the ocean
Clearing FOG The Natural Way
In order to avoid FOG-related penalties, get the job done right, and help protect the environment, more and more restaurants are utilizing a chemical-free drain cleaning system from Drainbo specially formulated to keep pipes clean and free-running the all-natural way.
Available directly to the food service industry ˆ as well as to consumers ˆ Drainbo is a ten-year old natural drain cleaner brand comprised of a seven-strain bacterial formula that uses the same natural process of biological decomposition that has kept our environment in perfect equilibrium since the dawn of time. All-natural, non-toxic, biodegradable, and formulated without any chemicals that could damage or destroy pipes, Drainbo is the perfect solution for any business owner who‚s thinking green ˆ both in terms of the environment and in terms of the considerable money they may save by keeping their pipes healthy (Drainbo reduces grease traps and interceptor maintenance by a full 70%).
Drainbo depends upon the teamwork of trillions of tiny, naturally-occurring living micro-organisms that thrive on a steady diet of organic waste, the very kind of waste that accumulates in the form of FOG. When this insatiable army of FOG-eaters is through digesting the most common kitchen food waste particles normally flushed down sinks into drain lines and sewage systems, it leaves behind nothing but water and carbon dioxide.
Also worth noting: the Drainbo system which is installed at food service establishments works on a systematically-metered time-release basis to ensure that pipes are being cleaned during those times of day (after meal-time, when the kitchen is closed) when waste products are most likely to clog up pipes and violate FOG Control laws. Best of all, the Drainbo system can be installed in less than an hour for only $100 and the metering equipment is free of charge.
According to Brian Walker, General Manager of Housing and Dining Services at UC Berkeley, “Crossroads Dining {on campus} has been using Drainbo Natural Drain Cleaner since its opening date in early 2003. We notice positive results with less service calls than anticipated. UC Berkeley, a leader in environmental sensitivity, strives to make financially viable and ecological decisions in our waste stream management. Drainbo Natural Drain Cleaner is an environmentally safe and natural product that actually works. This product is highly recommended for any institutional kitchen as a grease build-up prevention program.”
Adds Ron Darcey, Director of Marketing at Drainbo, “Protecting the environment is what Drainbo is all about. We are proud of our products not only because they are high quality ˆ but because they are safe, effective, all-natural and beneficial to our planet.”
