A grease trap is an important part of smooth restaurant operation. By removing the fats, oils, grease and solids, your plumbing runs smoothly. Most cities and towns require that food-service businesses install a grease trap in their commercial kitchens. If you don’t comply, you could face fines and possibly even a shutdown.
It’s important to keep these traps functioning, as any sign of neglect revealed through a regular inspection could also result in penalties. Not pumping and cleaning your grease trap regularly can lead to drain and sewer blockage and water damage.
It’s in everyone’s best interests to limit the strain placed on your local wastewater treatment facility. That’s why a grease trap is mandatory. The grease trap is a chamber attached to your drain lines. When waste enters, the fats, oils and grease rise to the top and the solids sink to the bottom. It allows only liquids to flow into the sewer system and onward toward the wastewater treatment plant.
Grease traps are highly effective at filtering out the FOGS (fats, oils, grease and solids) we don’t want in the sewer system. But the issue is that grease traps can’t empty themselves — they need someone to do it. That’s where Go2 Pumpers comes in.
As soon as your grease trap is too full to be effective, Go2 Pumpers steps in to help. Some grease traps need maintenance when they get to be one-quarter full, but every system is different.
When you’re setting up a regular service schedule, it’s wise to take design specifications into consideration. Know how quickly your restaurant fills the grease trap. Some businesses need service as often as once a month, while others can go as long as three months in between grease trap pumping and cleaning.
While we specialize in carrying away the FOGS that can’t enter the sewer system, we also clean the chamber too. With our high-pressure jetting services, we’re able to get your grease trap cleaner.
