Your kitchen stack is a sanitary/sewage pipe that collects dirty water from the dishwasher and kitchen sink. It sends wastewater to the main drain of the building. This water empties to the city sewage system. However, grease build-up will cause serious issues.
Dumped greasy water in the kitchen sink will cool and harden over time. The building will grow along the pipe walls within seconds. The solid and sticky grease makes the pipe opening smaller and smaller over time.
Eventually, the grease build-up grows so much that wastewater cannot drain. At this point, you will get a severe kitchen sink back-up (or sanitary back-up). Because the sanitary stack opening is sealed by accumulated grease water, the wastewater cannot escape. Instead, the sewage accumulates inside the pipe. The level rises until it reaches the top of your kitchen sink.
When the wastewater rises, dirty smell sewage rises through your dishwasher and might overflow on the floor. This results in severe damage to your apartment. The sewage might destroy your neighbors’ apartments below, as well. Avoid this terrible nightmare by calling POM Plumbing Inc.
