Avoid Spills by Pumping Regularly
Such greasy materials cause blockages, and often result in messy backups or overflows. The traps are designed to keep these materials separate from the wastewater so they can be extracted before they enter the sewer system.
These traps need to be pumped regularly to eliminate the build-up, and we provide grease trap pumping as one of our expert services.
Grease Trap Requirements
Any new or refurbished food preparation area must have a dedicated area for washing floor mats and equipment, contained with a berm to prevent wastewater from going into the storm drain system rather than going first through a grease trap. If a dedicated wash-down area is outdoors, the drains must be protected from rainwater.
Any sink that will be exposed to grease must have one of these traps. Generally, they should be placed at least 10 feet from any hot water faucets to allow the water to cool to 120°F before it enters the grease trap. The trap’s size must also meet the standards of the Uniform Plumbing Code.
