FOG Progam & Regulations Anaheim
What Is The Suggested Pumping Service For FOGS Device?
The city of Anaheim makes it madatory for all food servicing establishment to abide by BMP in regards to grease trap and grease interceptor maintenances. In order to protect the public from sewer sanitation overflows it is mandatory to have routine preventative maintenance such as 30, 60, 90 days or when it reaches 25% FOGS capacity. (See Anaheim FOG Program)
How Often Should A Grease Trap or Interceptor Be Cleaned?
There are many different factors that have to be considered when it comes to determining how often these devices are to be cleaned such as: size of the trap, the kind of food establishment, the amount of food being served and how well the kitchen being maintained. Since these devices come in a variety of sizes ranging from 5 gallons to 20,000 gallons, service maintenance will vary from monthly, quarterly, bi-yearly, yearly, etc. depending on the size, amount of meals served, type of food made, etc..
Grease traps and interceptors are most functional when it has 25% or below worth of fats, oils, grease and solids. Once it exceeds that amount the unit will start to release more FOGS waste out of the device which makes it less functional. Many cities will require establishments to empty the equipment once it reaches this level to prevent any sewer contamination. Depending on the size of the trap or interceptor is what will determine the frequency of service.
Small under the sink grease trap suggested scheduled maintenance:
Grease traps located inside the kitchens tend to be small with an average size ranging from 5-50 gallons. Due to its small size, most inside grease traps are serviced on a monthly basis to prevent any drain stoppage or overflows.
Outside underground grease interceptor suggested service increments:
The majority grease interceptors located outside the parking lots are significantly larger than inside grease traps. Due to its large size, these devices are usually buried under the ground varying in sizes such as: 750, 1,000, 1,200, 1,500, 2,000, 2,500, 3,000, 3,500, 4,000, 4,500, 5,000, etc.. Although these devices are more costly to install and service, the benefit is that interceptors require less pumping and are less likely to back up if it’s serviced regularly. On average, grease interceptors for majority of restaurants are serviced on a 3-6 month time period.
Grease Trap & Grease Interceptor Overflow
Majority of the time when a grease trap or interceptor overflow is due to lack of preventative maintenance. As mentioned earlier these FOGS separators are not meant to exceed 25% grease and solid content. Once it reaches that level its effectiveness starts to depreciate releasing unwanted FOGS into the sewer system. Since grease traps and interceptors are only designed to capture majority of the waste, it is not 100% effective which still releases approximately 20% of FOGS waste. Therefore, it is also important to make certain that beside pumping and cleaning the device to also clean the plumbing lines with a hydro jetter to blast away the build up sticking on the walls of plumbing pipes. Note that pumping and cleaning a grease trap or interceptor only removes the waste inside the unit but does clean the plumbing lines going into and out of the device.

Reducing FOGS Waste Entering The Trap
One of the main causes of heavy grease and solid waste build up from commercial kitchen are due to negligence. In other words, it is always best that before washing any dishes, pans, pots and utensils to ensure that all waste is thrown in trash as well as the debris are scraped off. If possible, be try to wipe of any leftover grease from cooking pans or commercial griddle so that it does not go into the drains leading to the grease trap or interceptor. Furthermore, always make sure that all floor drains or sinks have a proper strainer to minimize the amount of solid waste entering the FOGS device. By implementing a proper waste disposal process, it can reduce the amount of Fats, Oils, Grease and Solids entering the grease trap device.
Reasons Why The City of Anaheim Have F.O.G.S. Separator Device Requirements.
You might have not ever expected that even grease trap can be a serious environmental trouble maker. Have you been familiar with this tool? If you have been in the restaurant or other food servicing industry, you have seen the amount of FOGS waste that a commercial can produce. For this reason, restaurants are obligated to install a gravity device that will trap most of the fats, oils, grease and solids preventing them from entering the city sanitation line.
A grease trap or interceptor is meant to reduce the amount of FOGS waste entering the city sanitation line. In past, when grease traps or interceptors was not mandatory, all waste from commercial kitchens go directly into the city sanitation line causing heavy build up leading to major overflows. Due to the high cost of cleanup and repairs, the city was finally decided to make it mandatory for commercial all food servicing establishments install a grease separator to reduce the amount of FOGS waste entering the city sanitation lines.
Grease Traps and Interceptor 101
How Fats, Oils, Grease, & Solids Gravity Device Work
This instrument works like a collector, as well as separator. It slows down the flow of water together with grease, fats, and oil through the drain. Then the grease trap allows the grease and similar waste to coagulate and float. By this process, the trap has separated the grease on upper level and solid waste at the bottom. Meanwhile, the waste water gravity settles the grease and solids and once it separates the FOGS the filtered water is then released into the city sewer system.
Although, the grease trap or interceptor may not fully stop FOGS waste from entering the city sanitation line; it drastically reduces the amount of FOGS wasted entering the city line by nearly 80% when it is below the 25% FOGS level. Thefore, it is also highly recommended for the main grease lines to be hydro jetted on a timely manner to prevent blockage or grease overflows.
