The standard roof vent design, one that we have in our Duraflo SquareTop 6050s, has been around in both metal and plastic for over 40 years—and not much has changed in that time
Do not hesitate to get in touch for any reason.
In an industry dominated by concrete and steel since its inception, plastic is proving to be an increasingly worthy adversary. Well, that’s the nice way to say it. But as engineers, we far prefer the blunt version. Injection molded thermoplastics are now the premier grease interceptor construction material. Here’s why.

Your home is protected by a backwater valve, either because you had a great builder, or you’re a smart owner. Off to a great start, right?
Maybe not. What a lot of homeowners don’t know (especially first-timers) is that without proper maintenance, your backwater valve may be completely useless.
In April, the Western State Alliance (WSA), in collaboration with The Pacific Northwest Pollution Prevention Resource Center, brought together stakeholders from the western United States, Canada and the United Kingdom to participate in the 2017 third annual FOG Forum (fats, oils, and grease).

The first step is deciding where to put the power unit. For the best air quality and a healthier home, basement or garage storage is ideal; this will ensure that the dirt and dust is being suctioned out of the main areas of your home. Equally important is that you invest in a high quality machine to … Continue reading “Power unit placement”
