Did You Know?
A regular maintenance program for your grease trap or interceptor will minimize costly emergency services, overflows, line blockages, and odors.
What is a grease trap?
A grease trap, or grease interceptor, is a plumbing feature designed to prevent grease and other solid materials from entering a sewer system. If grease enters the sewer, it will congeal resulting in a solid mass. These solid masses cause backups, clogs and burst pipes. Grease traps are usually used in restaurants and other facilities. All commercial kitchens are required by law to have grease traps installed to collect the grease before entering the municipal sewer system.
How does your grease trap work?
Grease traps slow the flow of water coming from drains, allowing the water and grease time to cool. This cooling causes the grease to coagulate and float to the top while other heavier solids fall to the bottom of the trap. The remaining water in the middle is free to pass through on to the city sewer lines.
How do I maintain my grease trap?
Regular grease trap maintenance is very crucial to having an efficiently operating grease trap. Many problems can occur if the levels of collected fats, oil, grease and solids are not monitored. Examples of problems are drain line blockages, back-ups, foul odors, and too many fats and oils being deposited into the city sewer lines which can lead to governmental fines. A maintenance program for your grease trap or interceptor will minimize costly emergency services, overflows, line blockages, and odors.
