Grease Trap Restoration

A grease trap is a type of trap; a plumbing device designed to intercept solids and greases before they enter a waste water disposal system. Common waste water has small amounts of oils entering into septic tanks and treatment facilities and form a floating scum layer. The scum layer is digested very slowly and broken down by microorganisms in the anaerobic digestion process.

A septic tank or treatment facility can be overwhelmed due to the huge amounts of oil from food preparation in restaurants releasing untreated sewage into the environment. High viscosity fats and cooking grease such as lard become solids when cooled, and block drain pipes when combined with other disposed solids.

Short History

Nathaniel Whiting got the first patent for a grease trap in the late 1800s. Grease traps have been used since from Victorian days. They reduce the amount of fat, oils and greases (FOGs) that enter the sewers. These are boxes within the drain run flowing between the sinks in a kitchen sewer system.

Only kitchen waste water flows through them, and do not serve toilets. They can be made from stainless steel, concrete, plastics, and cast iron. They range from a capacity of 35 liters to 45,000 liters or greater. They can be located outside the building, below the ground, above the ground, or inside the kitchen.

Grease traps can be dirty, smelly and unpleasant to work with. If you neglect your grease trap cleaning, they can become an environmental hazard.
