Grease Trap Draining
Grease traps or interceptors are devices installed in commercial plumbing systems to prevent grease, fat, oil, wax or debris from entering and clogging main sewer lines. Wastewater from commercial dishwashers, sinks and floor drains contain high amounts of fats, oils and greases (FOGs) that must be separated from the flow of wastewater that enters the main sewer system. Building codes require restaurants and other commercial cooking facilities to install grease traps to block FOGs from entering sewer lines and causing hazardous backflows or backups. Grease inspectors make sure that restaurant grease trap systems are running trouble-free.
