Grease Trap / Interceptor maintenance, repair and installations
Cooking ends up generating a lot of dirt and waste, especially liquid waste. This buildup of waste, if left unchecked, not only becomes gross but can also be a serious and expensive process to undo.
For example, it can create issues at local water treatment facilities and clog sewer lines in the neighborhood. As such, it’s a really bad idea and unnecessary to pour fats, oils, and grease (FOG) down the drain.
While it’s a simple process to get rid of FOG at homes by just pouring it into a can or jar that’s empty, it becomes a rather daunting task for larger-scale establishments.

Grease Trap Maintenance Grease trap maintenance is generally performed by maintenance staff, or other employees of the establishment. Grease interceptor maintenance, which is usually performed by permitted haulers or recyclers, consists of removing the entire volume (liquids and solids) from the GI and properly disposing of the material in accordance with all Federal, State, and/or local laws. When performed properly and at the appropriate frequency, grease interceptor and trap maintenance can greatly reduce the discharge of fats, oil, and grease (FOG) into the wastewater collection system. The required maintenance frequency for grease interceptors and traps depends greatly on the amount of FOG a facility generates as well as any best management practices (BMPs) that the establishment implements to reduce the FOG discharged into its sanitary sewer system. In many cases, establishments that implement BMPs will realize financial benefit through a reduction in the frequency of required grease interceptor and trap maintenance. Refer to the “Best Management Practices” section for examples of BMPs that FOG generating establishments should implement. WARNING! Do not use hot water, acids, caustics, solvents, or emulsifying agents when cleaning grease traps and interceptors.
Size is, needless to say, the most important thing for an establishment to consider. This is tied to the rating that hydro mechanical interceptors have in terms of the allowable maximum drainage in gallons per minute (GPM). Naturally, hydro mechanical receptors have a 100gpm handling capacity, and anything beyond this should be left to the gravity receptor.
Things that influence the grease trap/interceptor sizing are:
-Sizing as per Values of Drain Fixture Unit (DFU) -Sizing as per the volume of total flowing fixtures -Sizing based on waste pipe’s diameter
To this end, it becomes necessary to have a manufacturer that provides charts with GPM flow listing based on the diameter of the pipe.
Septic Tank Enzyme Treatment will always be needed in all Septic Tanks and grease traps to work, and that means yours!
