Grease Trap Maintenance Broward County
Traditional grease traps rely on gravity to separate waste solids from wastewater and grease. They usually sit beneath your sinks and drains to keep the distance between the fixture and trap as small as possible. The water and solids separate naturally, while grease—which is 10% lighter than water—floats to the top of the tank. The water drains out of the tank to the sewer or septic tank, but the build-up of grease needs to be emptied on a regular and frequent basis.
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 disastrous for you and your customers. A clogged sewer line can cause sewage backups in your kitchens, bathrooms and your floor drains. Apart from being a massive violation of local health codes, sewage backups could contaminate your food and water-making employees and guests ill.
If the clog makes it to the main municipal sewer lines, the local authorities will fine your establishment for the costs of repair and cleaning (on top of fines for health code violations or other punitive charges). In short, it’s far better to invest in maintenance than pay thousands in fines down the line.
