Tips on Grease Trap Frequency
It is important to clean your grease trap/interceptor regularly to prevent fats, oil and grease (FOG) from mixing with water that is discharged to the sewer. The minimum cleaning frequency required for grease traps/interceptors in food service facilities may be dictated by the municipality or county that your business is located in, many require a service every 90 days. However, more frequent cleaning intervals may be necessary to prevent your grease trap/interceptor from operating poorly or improperly. FOG can have a detrimental impact not only on your facility, but the environment as well. FOG- clogged lines can back sewage up into your establishment and overflow out of manholes in parking lots and streets. If you see floating grease or grease deposits in a clean out "downstream" of your trap/interceptor, you need to increase the cleaning frequency and initiate a more regular schedule.

1. Your kitchen’s complete plumbing system, including sinks, dishwashers, floor-drains and mop-sinks, drains into the grease trap or grease interceptor system.

2. Wastewater flows into either an interior or exterior (usually in-ground) grease trap system. A baffle separates the inlet and outlet of the trap, keeping grease in.

3. Grease floats to the top of the grease trap, while solids settle on the bottom. The trap or interceptor must be vacuum pumped regularly by a skilled service provider to remove the entire contents of the trap.

4. Clean water then continues to flow into your sewer or septic system.
