- Grease traps – pumped, inspected and dispose of liquid and fats, oils and greases (FOG)
- Grey water issues in kitchen or restrooms
Your grease trap is there to slow down the flow of water coming from your drains. It allows the water/grease time to cool and separate letting the oils, fats and greases coagulate and float to the top and the heavier solids fall to the bottom. The remaining water is free to pass through on to the city sewer lines.
How often should I have my grease trap pumped?
No one wants to have a drain back up; they are smelly, greasy and hard to clean. Once your solid waste or FOG fraction is 25% of the volume of your trap it is time to have it pumped. Regular maintenance and inspections will help prevent costly emergency drain cleaning bills, disruptions during busy meal services, and lost revenue from unhappy or dissatisfied customers.
