Don't Put That Turkey Fat Down the Drain | Billy the Sunshine Plumber

Take care of your drains while cooking holiday meals: Do not pour grease or fats down your drains.

You made it through the crowds and the long lines at checkout counters. Now, all that’s left is cooking that holiday meal.

If you’re like many of us, you feel as if you’re on the home stretch and, barring some burnt cookies, you’re looking at a successful holiday. But don’t start celebrating now. Some things could still go wrong. You could, for example, get a clog or blockage in your plumbing system.

But you can avoid that if you’re careful about what you put down your drain and garbage disposal. For example, never ever pour grease, fats or oils in the sink.

“A medium-sized turkey produces up to three-quarters of a pint of fat which, if put down pipes, cools and potentially causes blockages and fatbergs,” explains “Waste fat, cooking oil and grease are poured down sinks …  along with food waste which can build up in pipes. “These mix with wrongly flushed items such as wet wipes, hygiene wipes, cleaning wipes, cleansing pads and sanitary products, causing blocked sewers, which can lead to flooding in your homes and in the environment.”

So, do yourself a favor. Find a disposable container, pour in the grease and toss it out with the trash.

However, sometimes, no matter how careful you are, clogs and blockages happen. If they do and you can’t get things flowing again, then it’s time to call Billy the Sunshine Plumber for help. Even on Christmas day.
