Why Do You Need a Grease Trap?
When time is crucial and seconds matter, you need a safe place to dispose of the oils you use for everyday operation. However, disposing of oil in a can like you would at home is dangerous and could leave you vulnerable to burn injuries or even a devastating grease fire. A grease trap allows you to safely throw this grease down the drain without the risk of clogging up your sewer or wastewater lines.
A grease trap functions on a simple principle: oil and water don’t mix, and most oils are lighter than water. Because these oils float upward to the top, they will safely rest atop water in a holding tank. This tank is known as your grease trap. All new grease that goes down the drain will float to the top of your trap while water at the bottom of the trap will continue to flow outward until the tank is full. Periodically, having your grease trap cleaned and reset allows you to continue disposing of grease safely without damaging the sewer, your plumbing, or the public wastewater treatment system.
How often you should have your grease trap cleaned will depend heavily on the size of your trap and the nature of your business. However, for those who heavily rely on their trap, such as restaurants, hotels, and any other business with a commercial kitchen, your grease trap should be cleaned every month. Those who use their trap less frequently can typically get away with waiting every two to three months, but this is a type of regular maintenance that absolutely needs to be done regularly. You’d be surprised just how quickly a grease trap can fill up.
