We’ll assess your current grease or sand/oil disposal methods and see if your system is working as it should. If not, we’ll make recommendations about what to do and provide you with a quote on an installation, repair, or replacement.

Do You Need a Grease Interceptor?

Although most substances that go down our drains easily break down and do not create any problems, heavy amounts of grease, oil, or fat can eventually be an issue. These materials can stick to the inside of your pipes once they begin to cool down, which can quickly lead to headaches if not properly dealt with. This is especially true with buildings used in the foodservice industry that deal with excess amounts of grease.

With our grease trap services, you can avoid:

  • Sewage backups
  • Vermin contact with disease-causing microbes
  • Damage to your plumbing system
  • Interruptions to your business by public health officials

How Do Grease Traps Work?

Grease traps operate on the principle that fats, oils, and greases are lighter than water and therefore rise to the top. Our interceptors use filters and a series of baffles to trap these unwanted substances before they can enter your plumbing system and clog. With regular grease trap cleaning, your filters won’t become too full, and you can effectively eliminate grease in your wastewater.
