Proactive Plumbing Solutions for Commercial Kitchens

In the hustle and bustle of a busy commercial kitchen, success hinges on more than great food and skilled chefs. It's also about having the right tools and systems, including a well-maintained plumbing setup. Unfortunately, this aspect often gets sidelined.


At The Drain Doctor™ in Calgary, we know firsthand how vital clean and functional plumbing is for a smoothly running kitchen.

Clogged Pipes and Neglected Grease Traps

Commercial kitchens face some specific plumbing challenges, including the accumulation of grease, food scraps, and soap scum within pipes. This build-up usually leads to slow drains, unpleasant odors, and expensive backups. Blockages not only interrupt kitchen operations but can also pose serious health and safety risks. Imagine how chaotic and potentially hazardous a backed-up sink could be during a busy lunch rush!


Grease traps are essential to commercial kitchen plumbing, designed to intercept grease and oils before they enter the main sewer line. However, they can become overloaded if not regularly cleaned and maintained, leading to overflows and potential environmental damage. Furthermore, clogged grease traps can contribute to the formation of blockages further down the line.
