Grease Traps


How Does A Grease Trap Work?

A grease trap is a receptacle into which wastewater containing FOG (fats, oil, and grease) flows through before entering the drainage system. The receptacle is designed to intercept or "trap" the FOG while allowing clear water to escape. The grease trap relies on gravity to separate waste solids from wastewater and grease. This is accomplished because grease is lighter than water and natural division occurs while these two elements sit together. The water flows out of the system and leaves just the grease behind.

What Happens if a Grease Trap Isn't Maintained Properly?

Grease traps are a vital part of your establishment’s plumbing system. If a grease trap is not well-maintained, fats, oils, and grease will be able to enter the wastewater supply and clog your main sewer line. This can be not only dangerous for you, but your customers as well.

If these systems aren’t maintained properly this could lead to your company being fined for not only health code violations, but punitive violations as well. To avoid these issues you need to hire professionals who know how to service these systems properly. Luckily, we here at Cloud 9 Services, LLC are just the company to help you!
