What is a Grease Trap?
A grease trap is a box that is installed in the sewer line leading from the sink. As waste enters the grease trap, FOG and other buoyant materials float to the top of the trap. Meanwhile, heavier solid waste sinks to the bottom. That leaves only liquid waste to travel through the grease trap and into the municipal sewer line. Grease traps store the solid and semi–solid waste until they are full, at which point they are drained so that they can continue functioning. This is the best possible method for preventing some serious problems with commercial sewer lines, as you will read below.
Why You Need a Grease Trap
FOG is so dangerous to sewer lines because when it is poured down the sink, it is in liquid form. It doesn’t stay that way, however. As FOG cools, it congeals into a viscous, semi–solid substance that sticks to the walls of the sewer line. If enough of this FOG builds up, it can restrict or even completely block the sewer line. Then, you’ll need to have the whole line cleaned out before you can resume using the kitchen. FOG can also clog municipal sewer lines, which affects more than just your kitchen. This is such a huge problem that many cities have actually made it legally required for commercial kitchens to have grease traps installed.
We Install and Service Grease Traps
Installing a grease trap means accessing your building’s sewer line, which we’re guessing you don’t want to do yourself. It also has to be installed in accordance with municipal regulations, which is a headache nobody wants. Fortunately, we have the skills and knowledge to get through all the red tape. Simply installing the grease trap isn’t the end, though.
Once the grease trap is installed, it’s going to need to be emptied every few months in order to continue working properly. Otherwise, the grease trap itself will simply clog up and you’ll be back to square one. If you already have a grease trap installed and it needs cleaning, call Cooling Unlimited, Inc. today. Our technicians are experts in keeping grease traps in excellent working condition. Let us handle all of your grease trap needs. We’ll make sure that your commercial sewer line continues to run as smoothly as possible.
