What is a grease trap?
A grease trap is a common plumbing device found mostly in the restaurant business but can also be found in buildings that have cafeterias and/or a service kitchen. For example, hospitals, schools, and nursing homes all have grease traps as well. The purpose of a grease trap is to prevent fats, oils, and/or grease (FOG) to get into the sewer line. Essentially, a grease trap intercepts the solid and grease that comes from the kitchen in order to avoid the sewer line from clogging and backing up.
How does a grease trap work?
The inflow FOG (fats, grease, oils) plus solids and water from the kitchen travels down to the grease trap tank. Since the fats, oils, and grease are lighter than solids, the FOG floats on top of the water creating a thin line of scum. With that said, once the solids enter into the tank, they fall to the bottom of the tank; leaving the water in the middle. From there, the water is filtered out again to eliminate the possibility of FOG and solids entering into the sewer line. After the water has been filtered a second time, it is then sent out to the sewer line.
How do you clean out the build-up from fats, oils, grease, and solids?
The best option is through hydro-jetting your grease trap. The water pressure from the hydro-jet will break up the build-up.
