You might want to say where else can we throw that greasy substance cooking meat leaves, other than in the sink? As it turns out, in many places except for the sink. As Arizona-based plumber Mark Stevens explain to us, “the problem is that the water and grease cool as [they] move through the pipes and solidify, attracting other debris and creating a blockage”.
In addition to that, fat, unlike other foods you might throw away in the sink, can actually turn rancid and release nasty smells. So if you already have this problem with your pipes, now you might know why.
