    Who is the hood manufacturer? They all use a specific surfactant as part of their listing. You can use another one but you will void the warranty, assume the liability and possibly damage hoses and or pumps if the wrong surfactant is used. I believe most if not all hood wash systems double as the plenum fire system in the event of a fire.

    Guess what? Appears Saturated Suter knows what he's talking about. The cleaner we use is distributed by the company that made our Gaylord brand hood systems.

    This is what we're using for our nightly automatic hood wash cycles (their picture):

    If you are getting clogged drains one thing to check is the temp. of the water.
