If you’ve got a slow drain or a clogged drain you can’t clean, it’s time to call the drain clearing experts at Billy the Sunshine Plumber.

Bacon is a wonderful thing and one of your weaknesses. You know you shouldn’t eat it – or at least not as much as you do – but you figure it really can’t hurt. After all, you run it off during your training for the upcoming Croom Fools Run. The only problem with bacon is the leftover grease from cooking. It’s messy and it’s hard to know how to dispose of it without getting it all over everything.

Whatever you do, do NOT dispose of the bacon grease by pouring it down your sink. Don’t do it even if the grease is hot and still liquid. Because it’s liquid, it’ll just flow away, right?


Pouring hot oil down the drain might not seem like a big deal in the moment, but even the occasional grease disposal shortcut can add up over time and result in a whopping plumbing bill, says. “Many oils, including butter, coconut oil, bacon fat or Crisco vegetable shortening, are in a liquid state when warm, but in a solid state at room temperature. … Once it cools, the grease hardens and sticks to the walls of the pipes. The oil, plus any food particles and debris that get washed down the drain, will congeal and stick around (pun intended) ― typically just behind where the pipe makes a U-bend ― the trap ― under the sink.”

When that happens, you’ve got a real mess on your hands. And you’ll need to find a drain clearing pro who can help clear out the mess.
