Does Hot Water Help? | Plumbing Clog

Billy the Sunshine Plumber will clear your pipes of all sorts of clogs and blockages.

It seems that ever since the Grand Prix you’ve been having trouble with a slow drain in your kitchen. Not that you think the Grand Prix has anything to do with it. That’s just when you started noticing it.

You’re more assuming it could have something to do with grease because you caught one of the kids pouring used grease down the drain after cooking bacon the other morning. You’re wondering if you pour a lot of hot water down the drain, if that will melt the grease and send it on its way.

Sadly, no. explains: “Remember your fifth-grade science lessons? As your teacher poured some olive oil into a cup of water, you probably noticed how the two liquids create a distinct line of separation, with the oil on top. Oil is hydrophobic, meaning it won’t mix with water, no matter how hard you force it. It doesn’t matter if the water is hot or cold either. When you mix grease with hot water, the water will flush down the drain, but the fatty, oily substance will be left behind. Because oil floats, all that leftover fat will bubble back to the surface the next time you turn on the faucet. It’ll never really wash down completely; over time, the oil and particle buildup will overflow back into your sink.”
