ugh...i just had my pipes dug out again....

the roto rooter man said i needed to add some junk to it like every other day....geeze at the price of that stuff it looks like it's cheaper to get the pipes cleared every now and then.

i'm so goofy after i saw the electric snakey thing he used...i'm thinkin i wanna buy one and just service it myself, didn't look like rocket science,. and it only took him a couple minutes.

Yeah, the roto rooter dude said it's cause i don't put stuff they sell down the drain.

After cleaning out my grease trap ONCE I swore I'd never do it again (my plumber warned me!!!!)....I bought some "Bio Clean" from her, pretty pricey at $30 for the 2lb bucket but I only use a small scoop once a month so it should last more than a year or two.

I haven't had the nerve to open up the grease trap again since I started using it so I don't know if it is really working but my drains seem fine.

ugh..i cleaned mine out once about 4 years ago...i thought i was gonna faint it was so gross.

that's alot cheaper than the stuff they recomended...maybe i'll buy some of that online.

how long have you been using it?

I think it has been about 6 months now....

Before you buy online...check out a few more plumbing companies and maybe even a plumber supply store to see what they carry. Even if they are a little more expensive than online, usually the shipping cost makes it an equal purchase.
