Preventing Problems on Industrial and Residential Drain Lines

Commercial Use: The Toledo Roto-Rooter grease trap program alleviates the high maintenance costs and service interruptions to your business with our enzyme treatments through a preset time-flow meter. Using our specially developed enzymes rated number one in a Consumer Reports article, will keep your grease trap lines free flowing. The product is designed to break down grease and turn it into non-polluting water and carbon dioxide (MSDA sheets with breakdown available). The cost per day is minimal at $2.30. The product is delivered in 15 gallons drums at a cost of $276.06 per drum and depending on your line usage the product will protect your lines for up to four months. We will lease the dispenser unit to you at a cost of $1.00 per year. Included at no charge to you is a monthly service call from our technician who will monitor the time-flow meter and replace product as needed. Once a year we will cable your treated lines (a one and a half-inch line up to 25 feet) at no cost to you to ensure that your lines remain free flowing. (see below)

For residential use Toledo Roto-Rooter service technicians can supply  you with a gallon container of our pipe shield that will maintain your line after our technician has cleaned your sewer or branch line. We also offer a Root Destroyer product that will retard the re-growth of roots in your main line once we have cleaned the line with a six-inch blade completely out to the main city connection. You can call our office at 888-438-7686 and if we have a service truck in your area we will be happy to have a gallon and a root destroyer delivered to your door.


Roto-Rooter® Drain and Grease Trap Treatment

Automated Drain Care for the Food Service Industry

  • Keeps drain lines flowing at full capacity—automatically!
  • Especially effective on long-chain fatty acids—the #1 cause of grease trap problems
  • Reduces grease trap pumping
  • Neutralizes foul odors

The Problem

The drain lines and grease traps in your kitchen, food preparation or processing areas are designed to flow at a specific rate. During daily use, grease and other organic matter build up on the sides of those pipes, reducing their flow. Even a brand-new drain system can develop problems in just a few months — to the extent that flow rates are reduced by one-half or more!

For example, as little as a one-half-inch buildup on the inside diameter of a four-inch or larger sewer line can cut the flow rate by about 50%. As more waste is deposited on the walls of the line, the flow rate is reduced further - until a total blockage occurs. Sure, you can clean the pipes - but as soon as you're done the grease and waste begins to build up again.

The Solution

To help solve drain line blockage problems, Roto-Rooter offers a system for ongoing drain maintenance that combines high technology with the latest advances in environmentally friendly microbiology. Using a microprocessor-controlled Time Flow Meter, Roto-Rooter® Drain and Grease Trap Treatment is pumped into your drain lines on a preprogrammed schedule to maintain proper drain flow.

The unique bioenzymatic formulation of Roto-Rooter® Drain and Grease Trap Treatment contains a blend of scientifically developed and selectively adapted sporetype microorganisms that literally "gobble up" organic waste materials and turn them into nonpolluting water and carbon dioxide. Roto-Rooter® Drain and Grease Trap Treatment is especially effective on long-chain fatty acids, the most common cause of grease trap problems, As a bonus, Roto-Rooter® Drain and Grease Trap Treatment also eliminates foul odors—including hydrogen sulfide, the familiar "rotten-egg" smell—because the microorganisms consume odor-causing organic wastes.

At the same time, a biofilm of these safe but active microorganisms builds up on the inside walls of drain lines and grease traps. This biofilm works around the clock, consuming grease and organic wastes before they have a chance to accumulate.

Your Roto-Rooter plumber will survey your drain and waste system, arrange for an initial line cleaning (if necessary) and design a treatment schedule tailored to your needs. Most food-service drain systems offer several possible locations for positioning the Time Flow Meter and a container of Roto-Rooter Drain and Grease Trap Treatment.

The microorganisms in Roto-Rooter® Drain and Grease Trap Treatment are similar to those found in nature. They don't contribute to pollution; in fact, they actually aid municipal treatment plants by beginning the biodegradation process upstream. Roto-Rooter® Drain and Grease Trap Treatment complies with all EPA requirements.

The Roto-Rooter® Time Flow Meter injects a precise amount of Roto-Rooter® Drain and Grease Trap Treatment into drain lines to replenish the biofi lm washed away by the natural flow of water through the system each day. The Time Flow Meter is totally automated and utilizes a battery backup system that maintains your preprogrammed schedule in the event of a power failure.

General Description

Roto-Rooter® Drain and Grease Trap Treatment is a blend of selectively adapted spore-type bacteria that completely degrades—not just dissolves—grease, fats and other organic waste. Grease waste is converted into fatty acids that are then oxidized into nonpolluting carbon dioxide and water.


Bacteria Type: Six-strain blend of highly selected sporetype Bacillus (for longer shelf life)

pH: 8.5-8.9

Stability: 24 months minimum

Storage and Handling: For maximum shelf life, store between 35° and 115° F. If frozen, thaw and mix thoroughly before use. Avoid eye contact. Do not ingest.

Packaging: Available in 5-, 15- and 30-gallon polyethylene containers.

Treatment: Always make applications during the drain system's longest period of nonuse—usually after cleanup at the end of the day. For best results, product should be injected daily. Clean slow-running drains and overloaded grease traps prior to beginning treatment program.

Time Flow Meter Specifications General Description

A microprocessor controls a self-contained injection system, automatically dispensing Roto-Rooter Drain and Grease Trap Treatment into drain lines and grease traps.


The Time Flow Meter pumps the Roto-Rooter Drain and Grease Trap Treatment from the container into the drain line or grease trap. The microprocessor is capable of 24 separate cycles per day, seven days per week. Any of the seven days may be eliminated, if necessary.


The Time Flow Meter operates on 24 volts via a 110/24-volt transformer.
