Kitchen Stack Cleaning

Publication date:

Article Summary: 

The article discusses the importance of properly cleaning kitchen stack pipes to avoid contamination with harmful bacteria such as E.coli and salmonella. While many plumbers may use a method that involves sending a power flusher up the vertical pipe from a cleanout located in the common area, this method is not sufficient for newer buildings. Instead, the recommended method is to install cleanouts inside the units and flush downwards or downstream of the cleanout. The article emphasizes the importance of working with a service vendor who specializes in this type of cleaning and educating homeowners on the process.
