Grease Traps Help Your Restaurant Function

Commercial plumbing systems differ significantly from residential plumbing systems, and that goes double for restaurants or similar food preparation businesses. You need specific pieces of equipment, not only to run your business effectively, but to keep up with health codes and building codes here in Marietta, GA. That includes a grease trap, which is not only necessary to your business by law, but will help you solve a number of problems. Here’s a quick breakdown of how grease traps function and the role they service in the health of your business.

FATS, OILS AND GREASE

In the plumbing industry, they’re called FOG: fats, oils and grease used in cooking and preparing food. They’re a devilish plumbing problem because they’re often in liquid form when hot, but will rapidly cool in the plumbing: solidifying and turning into a nasty clog. They are especially important in food preparation services because it’s almost impossible to catch them all before they get poured down the drain, and taking the time to dispose of them in any other way is impractical in the extreme. And while clogs may be bad enough in residences, they can be devastating to restaurants, shutting them down and denying them a day’s worth of business in some cases.

GREASE TRAPS TO THE RESCUE

A grease trap is essentially a tank in your plumbing system, allowing for the separation of wastewater into key components. Solid materials sink down to the bottom of the tank, while FOGs float at the top. In the middle sites non-problematic wastewater, which won’t stop up your pipes, and which can be safely pumped out and into the sewer system. It’s an elegant, simple solution, though it requires regular cleaning from a trained service and swift repairs when breakdowns occur.
