      Unsaturated (generally, liquid at room temp) doesn't do much. Saturated can frick things up as it goes deeper, cools, and solidifies.

      Depends on how cold your lower pipes are. Running very hot water before, during, and after should make the grease's impact pretty minimal.

You should be thankful they allow peasants like yourself to rent, for a fair monthly price, an apartment that you more than likely can't afford to purchase.

                I live in a cheap complex, in one of the more expensive states. None of what you say is true. They/you don't produce a "home", even using that term when it's specifically rooted toward houses< is disingenuous. It's an apartment. Don't get grandiose. Next, correct, the landlord, not per se the manager, does no work. They hire others, mainly that manager, to do all that for them.

                Now let's address the takes no risks portion. In flyover states, which I'm sure you're based in, fluctuating property values? Yes. That - is a concern, mainly in stuff like a recession or juuust after the housing market crashed for a brief interim. That "fluctuation" otherwise speaking, unless the shit government decides some new regulations are woefully past due on your modern day monopolies, those go "up" - every - fricking - year. Destructive tenants is legitimate, if only you had access to information to screen people.

                Sorry you have trouble honestly representing how good you have it for fear of losing it, revolt, or legislation being passed that leads to some unintentional honesty.

    I dont get this meme, what possible effect could it possibly have to drip a bit of oil into the same sink where I constantly wash hands and flush it with hot water, soaps, detergents, and other de-greasing crap? I worked in restaurants where pipes cloggage was a problem but only because they were dumping gallons of deep fry oil there daily

    • 1 month ago

      I'm a realtor. When someone buys a house, they get an inspection, and a part of that inspection is an inspection of the sewer lines.

      Yes, you can easily tell when a moron dumps grease down the drain. The kitchen stack gets literally filled with solid gunk to the point that your kitchen sink starts to drain slowly. Pouring something like "Draino" down your sink drain will only do so much. It doesn't really stick to the years of solidified fats and food puree that has accumulated on the walls of the pipe. Usually, it just gets accumulated on the kitchen stack, but sometimes it builds up in the lateral too.

      Getting these pipes unclogged starts at about $300-400 for either a hydro-jet or roto-rooting, and sometimes one or both of those are difficult, impossible, or not good enough.

      See above. And any restaurant that dumps gallons of deep fryer oil down the drain needs to be closed down.

      I've been doing this for 5+ years in the same sink and have had no issues. It doesn't do anything to your pipes, it's just a lie spread for the sake of environmentalism

      It absolutely clogs up your pipes. I have seen (and smelled) it first-hand.

          It's nothing dramatic. Just that when you open up the clean-out on the kitchen stack, you can really tell when people dump grease. It gets caked on the sides of the pipe, and since everything you put in your sink is passing through and usually sticking to it, lots of bacteria colonize it. It stinks when you open it up. Usually, the kitchen stack doesn't stink when you open up the clean-out. Also, depending on where you live, the sewer lateral from your house to the sewer main (under the street) might be made of clay. Roots will commonly get in there, but honestly, most of the blockages at this point are from people flushing baby wipes and shit like that.

                This is not how apartment buildings work. The point at which oil clogs cause problems are far enough from your personal kitchen that there are often redundancies in place, and if not then quite a lot of people will be effected and the management company is likely to get it fixed fairly quickly since like 40 units have backed up plumbing. That is if it's not so far downstream that it's the city's problem, which is even less likely to have an immediate impact on your personal kitchen. Furthermore, it's not at all possible to trace this kind of thing back to one individual. So taking all of this together, it becomes clear that it is quite literally not your problem.
