Grease traps are sometimes found in the kitchen plumbing of homes, but primarily they are used for commercial establishments. A grease trap catches the large amounts of grease, oils, and fats that can go down the drains and disposals of commercial plumbing that can cause problems for either the local drainpipes or the municipal sewer system. Whatever size of food service business you operate—from a large cafeteria that’s open 24 hours to a small restaurant—it’s vital that you have a professionally installed grease trap.

Why Commercial Grease Traps Are Important
The plumbing in your food service establishment must meet local codes. If it doesn’t, it could mean an expensive shutdown for your business until the problems are addressed. A grease trap is an important part of this plumbing, since it handles trapping all the extra fats, oils, and grease that can enter into the drainpipes and create clogs, or into the municipal sewer system where it can cause more general problems for plumbing in the area.
For a new grease trap to work properly and meet local codes, it must be sized correctly. This is a job that you must leave to commercial plumbing professionals. They will estimate the peak flow levels and factor in how many fixtures the grease trap services in order to find the best grease trap to fit your needs—and those of the local plumbing code.
We Offer Repairs and Maintenance for Grease Traps
It isn’t enough just to have a grease trap for your establishment: it must be regularly maintained and cleaned to pump out the collected solids in it. The cleaning will not only remove the accumulation of fats, oils, and grease, but also scrape away the hardened grease—and that will help the trap do its job better and reduce the need to be pumped less often.
If a grease trap starts to malfunction and becomes blocked up, it can mean nasty odours entering your kitchens and even backed–up drains. This is not only inconvenient; it could lead to health code violations. Call on our plumbing repair professionals to help you whenever your grease trap stops doing its job.
