How do grease traps work?

Grease traps are plumbing devices designed to intercept most greases and solids before they enter a wastewater disposal system. 

Typically installed between kitchen sinks and the sewer system, grease traps slow down the flow of wastewater, allowing the water to cool and the FOG (fats, oils and grease) to separate and float to the top while heavier food particles settle at the bottom. 

The trapped grease and food particles are then periodically removed to maintain the trap’s efficiency. By capturing these materials, grease traps prevent them from clogging pipes, causing backups, and entering municipal sewer systems, which can lead to significant environmental issues and costly repairs.

How much does it cost to clean a grease trap?

The cost of cleaning varies based on the size of the grease trap, and the time taken. Smaller grease traps are usually pumped out for a flat fee, whereas larger grease traps are priced in terms of cents per litre.

How often should grease traps be pumped out?

The frequency of cleaning depends on the size of the business, the type of food served, and local regulations. Generally, it is recommended to clean grease traps at least once every three months, with more frequent cleaning for busier establishments.
