LEARN HOW TO UNBLOCK DRAINS: THE ECO-FRIENDLY WAY

LEARN HOW TO UNBLOCK DRAINS: THE ECO-FRIENDLY WAY

LEARN HOW TO UNBLOCK DRAINS:
THE ECO-FRIENDLY WAY

A clogged drain is a real hassle, whether it’s in the kitchen or the bathroom. If you want to keep using your plumbing, as usual, that clog has got to go. However, you may not want to have harsh chemical drain cleaners in your home. Children and pets may get into them and present a serious hazard. But you may also want to minimize the number of chemicals you put into the environment via the water supply cycle. If that’s the case, follow these tips to learn how to unblock drains in eco-friendly ways!

TRY USING A PLUNGER FIRST

Using the proper kind of plunger for your drain – and yes, there are plungers that are appropriate to use on a sink. They are usually red rubber and have a shallow suction cup. Plunging the drain may be all you need to do. The suction could force the clog away, leaving you with a clear drain.

TURN TO BAKING SODA

After the plunger method, your drain may not be totally clear. If this is the case, pour a cup of baking soda down it and then 3 cups of very hot water. This can resolve clogs nicely, but if it doesn’t, there are still other tricks to try.

ADD VINEGAR

Vinegar and baking soda may bring elementary school science projects to mind, but in reality, they make a great combination for cleaning drains. Pour half a cup of baking soda down the drain, and then half a cup of white vinegar. You can also heat the vinegar first or follow up the combination with very hot water if it’s a really stubborn clog. Some people also swear by adding just a little lemon juice to the mix.

A Green Solution

Once you’ve tried all these eco-friendly drain cleaning methods, you’re clog should be gone! If it isn’t, don’t turn to a chemical drain cleaner! There could be adverse reactions within your pipes when you mix all these items with chemicals. If your drain still isn’t clear, it’s time to call a professional!

Case Study: Refrigerated Display Case LED Lighting Retrofit

Case Study: Refrigerated Display Case LED Lighting Retrofit

Customer:

A supermarket chain engaged principally in the retail sale of groceries, dairy products, frozen foods, meats, seafood, fresh produce, flowers, pharmacy services, deli products, prepared foods, bakery products, beer/wine, fuel, and general merchandise.

Objective:

This supermarket chain needed a program to enhance the visual appeal of its refrigerated vertical cases while reducing its associated energy costs.

Challenge:

Reviewing the refrigerated display case specifications, we recognized that a traditional retrofit approach of replacing components with upgraded lamps and ballasts would not achieve the required improvement. We needed to recommend a solution that would slash energy and maintenance costs while enhancing the visual appeal of their vertical cases.

Solution:

We offered a retrofit program created specifically for refrigerated vertical cases. GE’s Immersion™ RV40 LED Refrigerated Display Lighting cuts annual operating costs while improving illumination of the packaged products. The perfect replacement for fluorescent lighting, GE’s Immersion™ solution efficiently delivers bright uniform light on the inside of the case, while significantly reducing energy consumption and maintenance expenses. This is an easy to install solution, contains no lead or mercury as with other lighting sources, and is both RoHS and NSF compliant.  A rated life of 50,000 hours and a 5-year warranty are icing on the cake.

Results:

For a typical location with 18 cases and 83 door retrofits:

  1. An immediate $5,000 per year reduction in maintenance costs. An immediate 86% reduction in energy usage resulting in $6,100 annual utility cost savings.
  2. An annual reduction of 78,533 lbs. of greenhouse gases emitted into the atmosphere Qualified for a $4,700 utility rebate.

“Ferrandino & Son is a great partner that provided a turnkey solution to my LED
cooler door retrofitting projects. They were involved in all aspects of the process from
providing return on investment analysis, implementing retrofits and processing rebates.”
