Proper grease trap or grease interceptor pumping is the best way to prevent backups and drainage issues
What Is A Grease Trap?
Water is slowed down by the inlet baffle wall which allows for separation of solids and FOG. Solids are blocked by baffles on the floor of the trap. “Clean” water leaves the trap through the outlet baffle.
Grease traps are typically inside traps – either in the floor or under the sink.
Grease traps should be pumped EVERY 30 Days
What Is A Grease Interceptor?
Water is slowed down by the inlet downturn which allows for gravity separation of solids and fats, oils, and grease. Water flows through the baffles between each compartment further filtering out FOG (fats, oils and grease) and solids until “clean” water leaves the interceptor through the outlet downturn.
Grease interceptors should be pumped EVERY 90 Days
Why Is Maintenance So Important?
No interceptor or trap is 100% effective at retaining grease, oils, solids, etc. The longer a device is left unmaintained, the more material can escape. As material, such as grease, leaves the device, it can coat the inside of pipes. This can lead to frequent costly hydro jetting of sewer lines.
When a interceptor or trap in not properly maintained:
- Excess buildup of the contents can lead to blockages or surcharges.
- Missing or broken inlet and outlet baffles or baffle walls do not allow efficient separation of grease.
- Grease entering the City sewer system can backup causing sanitary sewer overflows, blockages and stoppages.
- Surcharging and blockages may force your establishment to shut down until the issues are resolved.
- Grease over time becomes acidic and can corrode and destroy your interceptor or trap.
- Holes in traps or interceptors can allow grease to penetrate the ground beneath the facility.
- Additives are prohibited! Enzymes, bacteria, microbes, grease grabbers, grease liquifiers, and grease eaters should never be used and are harmful to the sewer systems.
