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.
