Food service operators are in the business of supplying the public with wholesome, safe food under profitable conditions, and are not in the business of wastewater treatment.
Wastewater treatment is the responsibility of municipalities and counties. Typically, a restaurant is only responsible for maintaining the sewer line up to the point where it is tapped in to city sewer.
The basis for so much attention to the problems associated with fats, oil & grease is the Federal mandate to local municipalities to reduce sewer overflows and spills. These spills result in heavy fines for municipalities and increase costs for the Local Governing Authorities (L.G.A.) in maintaining the sewer distribution system. The number one reason for sewer overflows is grease blockages. Ameri-Clean Pumping works very effectively to correct this problem.
Why Should Grease Traps be Routinely Maintained?
Grease traps not maintained on a regular basis will result in the discharge of brown grease into waste streams. Grease mixed with cold water and sewage causes major clogs in sewer lines.
Grease traps not maintained on a regular basis will result in back-ups in your restaurant. Every restaurant has a horror story of all drains backing-up and paying a large bill to repair or in worst case scenario… shutting your doors for the day or longer.
Grease traps not maintained on a regular basis can result in odor problems outside where customers park and in some cases inside the restaurant.
What Are the Requirements Regarding Grease Trap Size and Servicing Frequency?
Each LGA (Local Governing Authority) has specific requirements. The sizing is based on many factors with the most important factor being number of seats in your establishment.
The servicing frequency varies depending on the requirements of LGA. Typically indoor grease traps are serviced from 30-90 days. Outdoor grease traps are serviced a minimum of 90 days and a maximum of 180 days. Check with LGA to verify your facilities requirements.
