Many customers ask us how often grease traps should be cleaned, and we explain that they need to be cleaned and emptied regularly. Because of the build-up of fats, oil and grease (FOG), as well as solids that make their way into the system, if the unit is left for too long without being emptied, the trap will not only become blocked, but the waste could start to escape through either the inlet or the outlet pipe. 

Usually, a trap will need cleaning between every 2 ‒ 4 weeks, though the actual length of time will depend on how much usage the trap gets and the amount of wastewater that enters the drainage system.

If you have a clogged grease trap that needs pumping out, get in touch with us today. We can send one of our team members to carry out the cleaning, and as every one of our staff members is an expert in this industry, they will be able to tackle any type of grease or solid that is causing the problem.

Maintenance and Repair

Over time, it is possible for traps to become damaged, either through overuse or just through age. In these cases, we can repair your system and return it to its optimal condition.

If your system has become too damaged to continue to collect waste properly, we can also remove it and replace it with a completely new one. Please get in contact with us today to see what needs to be done with your trap, so that we can either get it repaired sooner or get you a new one as soon as possible.

What is a Grease Trap?

A selection of grease traps

A grease trap is a container that wastewater and FOG flow through before entering a property’s drainage system. They are designed to catch FOG before joining the main sewer while allowing clear wastewater to leave via the drains. 

As fats and oils are less dense than water and grease will not mix with the water, they float on the surface and become trapped in the grease trap’s baffle while the wastewater leaves through the outlet pipe. Solids are sometimes separated, as many traps have strainers preventing them from collecting and sinking to the bottom.
