Clean operating and maintained Grease Traps are essential to preventing costly backups and slow drains

A diligent maintenance schedule of pumping the grease trap will prevent costly cleanups and downtime

All Restaurants have and need a Grease Trap.

Wastewater flowing from restaurants or other types of commercial facilities that produce fats, oils, and grease are required to have a grease trap or multiple grease traps in line to the sewer system. The design of a grease trap intercepts the flow of FOG (Fats, Oils, and Grease) to the wastewater treatment plants. The goal is to prevent these products from entering the waste streams. A grease trap is 70-90% effective in capturing the FOG (Fats, Oils, and Grease).

Grease traps are required to be pumped and cleaned at least every three months.

These grease traps/interceptors are usually about 1,200 gallons in size and made of concrete or plastic. Some grease traps can be as large as 3,200 gallons. A grease trap is installed underground, just outside the commercial facility using them. Sometimes there is a series of 2 or 3 tanks, depending on the facility requirements. However, grease traps are always full, except after pumping has occurred. As the wastewater flows through the grease trap it impacts against an inlet tee designed to decrease stirring up the wastes in the tank. Then, as the wastewater flows in, an equal amount flows out of the other side through the outlet and on through the sewer system. In between this area is a baffle in the tank which keeps most of the solids and floating scum on the inlet side of the tank.
