Grease Traps

A grease trap is basically an interceptor that is located within a drain or sewage drains to separate grease, fat, oils and food waste from water. By doing this it prevents fats and greases from entering into the waste management system and creating blockages. Most grease traps are located inside of a kitchen or sometimes in larger commercial properties outside the kitchen areas. Larger Commercial properties such as large restaurants, schools, hospitals etc have the grease trap located outside in the grounds of the property. Smaller restaurants and other businesses may have the grease trap located inside.

If the levels of the collected waste are not controlled regularly this can have an adverse effect on the grease trap and cause drain Get In o, waste coming back up the drains, strong smelling odours and fatty waste escaping into the drainage system. To ensure the grease trap remains clean and in full working order, it is advised that regular servicing and maintaining is carried out to prevent problems further down the line.
