If you do experience grease trap problems at your facility, contact our team.
Many commercial facilities use grease traps within their septic systems to filter out fats and oils from the wastewater moving through the drains. A grease trap is a metal box with a grate that can trap oil, preventing it from settling in the septic tank. When too much grease builds up within the tank, issues can arise that impact the entire system, often resulting in sewage backups or slow-moving drains. In certain facilities, such as restaurants or catering facilities, the higher volumes of oil in the water that move through the plumbing can create serious problems, so having a grease trap is important.
However, when your facility experiences grease trap problems, they can slow down your processes and wreak havoc on your business. Some of the warning signs of grease trap problems include water that is slow to drain and unpleasant odors coming from the sinks. Certain habits can also impact the performance of the grease trap. For example, if you’re constantly rinsing excessive amounts of oil down the drain, you’re likely to end up with more grease trap problems. Large pieces of food can also get trapped, causing backup and excess waste.
