Grease Interceptors or grease traps work by intercepting the fat, oil & grease ( commonly known as FOG) before they get into the sewer system.
Hot water flow is slowed so grease is able to separate. Grease rises to the top of the cooling water and is ‘trapped’ by the interceptor.
This prevents grease from entering the sewer system, causing blocked pipelines, health/hygiene problems and potential breach of food safety legislation.
You may notice bad smells coming from the grease trap. Blocked pipes can occur because the grease trap is full or blocked.
While there is no hard and fast rules around when to empty your grease trap, a scheduled maintenance plan e.g. every 4-6 months will help to keep things operating smoothly and safely.
