Grease Trap Pumping Services

Cooking grease that gets washed off cooking appliances and kitchenware can end up causing significant problems in building drains and sewers. A grease trap works by slowing down the flow of warm/hot greasy water and allowing it to cool. As the water cools, the grease and oil separate and float to the top of the grease trap, which allows the water to flow down the pipe to the sewer. The grease is trapped by baffles, which over the inlet and outlet of the tank, preventing grease from flowing out of the trap.

Grease traps were never designed to stop 100% of the grease from reaching the drain. A well maintained grease trap allows 15% of the grease in the wastewater to perpetually flow into the sanitary sewer.

Scheduled maintenance on your grease trap is mandatory per city codes. Most grease interceptors need to be cleaned every 60 to 90 days. A grease trap pump includes a truck with a large holding tank that brings hoses inside the facility to the grease trap. All of the contents of the grease trap are pumped into the truck. Grease traps located on the outside of the building are pumped from outside. If you are experiencing any odors or grease blockages, it is time to schedule your grease trap pump.
