I am having an issue with grease in my drain pipes in my kitchen sink. I think it happened during the house repair before we bought it. I am having a hard time with slow drains and clogs. I wanted to get away with the dirty grease by any means. I tried many usual ways by spraying grease deterrents to get rid of the grease but as it is inside the pipe far reachable.
How can I remove the grease?
I find that most clogs happen in the trap below the sink. They are usually remove able so you could take it off and clean it out separately. You also have easier and more direct access to the rest of the system once you take the trap off. You may be able to snake it easier yourself.
If that doesn't work, call in a pro. They have better equipment and can also scope the line with a camera to see if you have any other issues. With tough clogs like yours, it is usually worth the cost.
Good luck with it.
Honestly, if you have a grease build up in your smaller 1 1/2 pipe work ie kitchen drains. There is no product that will magically cure this. You have to replace them. its painful i know but the only sure way to solve this.
In my experiences with grease in the drains, you can have the grease pretty far back in the drains. Unfortunately the only way to fix the problem is to have the drain pipes replaced.Then once the drain pipes are replaced the best way to drain grease is with the hot water running.
Good luck with this project.
