HOW DOES A GREASE TRAP WORK?
A grease trap is usually a box that is installed in the sewer line leading from your commercial sinks and floor drains. As grease and other food waste enters the grease trap, fats, buoyant materials will float to the top of the trap. In the meantime, solid waste goes to the bottom, with only liquid waste to travel through the trap and continue on to the sewer line.
Grease traps store solid and semi–solid waste until they are full, at which point they will need to be drained in order to keep functioning effectively. A grease trap is truly the best method to avoid serious issues that can occur with commercial sewer lines.
DO YOU REALLY NEED A GREASE TRAP?
It may seem odd to you that FOG can create so much damage to your commercial plumbing system. After all, it’s in liquid form when it goes down your drain, right? Unfortunately, it doesn’t stay that way. As fats, oils, and grease cool, they begin to harden into a viscous, semi–solid substance, which sticks to the walls of your pipes and the sewer line.
In most states and cities, it's a requirement to get your grease trap pumped at least once a quarter, some grease traps can require pumping once a month. It all depends on the size of the grease trap.
