How Grease Traps Work
A grease trap is essentially a large container that is designed to stop grease from flowing into your drains. This is important because oil, fats and grease can do a lot of damage in drains, gathering in pipes until drain clogs form. Sewage is more likely to backup into your plumbing system if you allow too much grease to get through the drains. It can also cause a lot of damage for the municipal sewer line, and you could face fines if you are found to be at fault for a sewage leak due to mismanagement of your commercial grease output.
You put foods into your commercial garbage disposal to break them into smaller pieces, but this does not mean that your sewer system can handle the food scraps as they go through. A grease trap allows solids to settle at the bottom layer of the tank, while grease and oil settle at the top. The position of the drain ensures that wastewater exits the tank, but very little fat, grease, or oil goes with it. Air vents help to regulate the flow entering and exiting the tank. The grease is cleaned out during a routine maintenance visit from a professional.
Don’t Forget to Schedule Grease Trap Cleaning
Grease trap cleaning is so important if you operate a commercial kitchen. Your plumber can tell you how often you should schedule grease trap pumping according to the size of your system. For many large systems, grease trap pumping should take place at least once a month, though you may be able to do it less often if you have a smaller operation. In any case, you should select professionals for the job who have the proper equipment to clean out your grease trap.
