WE CAN HELP YOU WITH YOUR GREASE TRAPS

WHAT ARE GREASE TRAPS?

Grease traps, often found in the plumbing systems of restaurants and commercial kitchens, are essential devices designed to intercept and capture grease, oils, and fats before they enter the wastewater disposal system. These traps function by slowing down the flow of warm or hot greasy water, allowing it to cool. As it cools, the grease and oil, which are lighter than water, separate and float to the top. Meanwhile, heavier solids settle at the bottom, and the water in between, now largely free of grease, flows out of the trap and into the sewer system. This process not only prevents blockages but also plays a crucial role in maintaining the efficiency and longevity of the wastewater treatment system.

Pumping and servicing grease traps are crucial maintenance tasks that ensure these devices continue to operate effectively. Over time, the accumulated grease can solidify, reducing the trap’s efficiency and leading to potential blockages, unpleasant odors, and even health hazards due to backed-up sewer lines.

REASONS TO CLEAN YOUR GREASE TRAPS

PREVENTING BLOCKAGES AND OVERFLOWS:

Regularly pumping out the accumulated grease and debris keeps the trap functioning correctly, preventing blockages that can lead to overflows and costly cleanups.

COMPLIANCE WITH REGULATIONS:

Many localities have specific regulations regarding grease trap maintenance to protect the public sewer system. Regular service helps ensure compliance with these regulations, avoiding fines and legal issues.

ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION:

Properly maintained grease traps prevent fats, oils, and greases from entering and harming the environment, particularly local waterways, where they can cause significant damage to aquatic life and water quality.

OPERATIONAL EFFICIENC

Clean and well-maintained grease traps help maintain the overall efficiency of the kitchen's plumbing system, reducing the risk of unexpected downtimes and promoting a more hygienic working environment.
