Protect Wastewater Lines

It’s a Toilet, Not a Trashcan!

Some Things Just Don’t Belong in the Toilet …

Toilets are only meant for one activity, and you know what we’re talking about! When the wrong thing is flushed, results can include costly backups on your own property or problems at your local wastewater treatment plant. That’s why it’s so important to treat toilets properly and flush only your personal contributions to the local wastewater treatment plant. Read full brochure.

Fat-Free Sewers

Prevent Fats, Oils and Greases from Damaging Your Home and the Environment

 

Fats, oils, and grease aren’t just bad for arteries and waistlines; they’re bad for sewers, too.
Sewer overflows and backups can cause health hazards, damage home interiors, and threaten the environment. A common cause of overflows is sewer pipes blocked by grease. Grease gets into the sewer from household drains, as well as from poorly maintained grease traps in restaurants and other businesses.

Caution: Grease traps or interceptors at restaurants, large buildings, and other commercial establishments must be properly designed to handle the amount of grease that is expected, be installed correctly, and be cleaned and serviced on a frequent basis. Read full brochure or read insert.

5 Steps to Clean Water?

A Typical Treatment Plant: Clean Water Step by Step

 

The modern sewer system is an engineering marvel. Most homes, businesses, and institutions throughout the modern world are connected to an infrastructure of below­ ground pipes that carry their wastewater to a treatment plant.
