What is a grease trap?

Why install a grease trap?

In the past when having a grease trap was not required, FOGS that was entering the city sanitary line was causing major blockage affecting sewer to overflow and back up. Therefore, the city and waste water sanitation district enforced a law requiring all FSE’s (Food Servicing Establishments) to install a device that will trap to reduce the amount FOGS waste entering the sanitation line.

Why Is The Grease Trap Leaking

There are 3 major reasons grease traps leak leading to a big nasty and smelly mess. Those reasons are as follows:

  • Excessive Fats, Oils, Grease & Solids Content
  • Plumbing
  • Corrosion
  • When these devices are not serviced on a timely manner excessive FOGS content exceeding 25% will cause the device to properly flow causing it to overflow. Be sure to regularly clean the grease trap keeping it below the maximum levels to ensure flow. Typically indoor grease traps due to its small capacity are serviced monthly as a rule of thumb.

    If you have recently pumped and cleaned device and are experiencing an overflow, odds are your outbound line leading to the sewer is clogged. Since grease traps does not retain majority of the grease and food solid waste, the FOGS escaping will adhere to the pipe eventually causing heavy build up that needs to be cleaned from time to time with a hydro jetting machine. A hydro jetter is the best remedy to restore the plumbing back to its original condition.

    Grease traps over time can corrode eventually ending its life span. Due to the high acid content flowing into the device, it will cause it to rust weaking the metals causing it to leak. Leaks caused by corrosion are usually found on the side or the bottom seams of the device. It is likely that when these devices do leak that it will be more cost effective in the long run to replace it compared to repairing.

    How often should a grease trap be cleaned?

    On average most grease traps are serviced between 2-8 weeks especially when they are below 50 gallons. The general rule is once the grease trap reaches 25%-30% grease and solids combined, the grease trap will need to be cleaned. Going over these percentages will cause the grease trap to start releasing more unwanted FOGS waste making the device ineffective. In other words, grease traps are not supposed to be completely filled up with grease and solids before it is serviced.
