What is a Grease Trap?
Grease traps have been around for over 100 years. Also known as a grease
interceptor, these traps are an efficient way to collect fats, oils and
grease (FOGs) before it makes it's way to the septic system. This is important
because this grease doesn't break down as well as waste from showers and
toilets. When too much grease is in the septic tank it causes clogging
and will back up the system.
Grease Trap Cleaning
Having your grease trap regularly cleaned is vital. Many restaurant owners
and other grease trap owners are unaware of how often grease interceptors
need to be thoroughly cleaned by a professional. The answer is: it depends
on how much grease you are producing and dumping into the trap.
With that said, typically grease traps should be cleaned at least every
1-3 months depending on the amount of usage it receives. A good rule of
thumb to follow is to clean the grease trap out whenever it is a quarter
full. If not cleaned regularly the FOGs in the trap can begin to smell
after sitting for a long time. Also, the more fats, oil, and grease in
the trap, the less effective it will be.
Grease Trap Replacements & Installations
Working with grease traps can be a messy business. While routine cleaning
is an important step in maintaining a fully functional kitchen, you can't
always prevent a grease trap from breaking or overfilling. When the time
comes for a new grease trap, it should always be handled by a trained
& qualified professional.
If a grease trap is installed improperly it can cause major sewage back
ups and plumbing problems that will cost greatly in the long run. Also,
cooking oils and grease are fire hazards. It is always best to leave the
job to a professional instead of risking a kitchen fire during installation.
