Grease Trap Installation

A grease trap is  designed to intercept most greases and solids before they enter a drainage system. Grease Trap Installation also prevents costly fines that you could receive for not having a grease trap.

What is a Grease Trap? 

A Grease Trap, sometimes known as separators or interceptors; prevent fats, oils and grease (FOG) produced by commercial kitchens from entering the drainage system and causing blockages. They act as a filter between sinks and dishwashers and the main sewer system, preventing blockages that will require drain jetting.

It is vital that businesses take responsibility with regard to the correct disposal of all FOG products. If a business has no measures in place to prevent FOG products from entering drains, such as suitable Grease Traps, they will be on the receiving end of a hefty cleaning bill and maybe even a fine and prosecution.

How Do Grease Traps Work?

When waste is poured down the sink it runs into the grease trap. Any solid matter sinks to the bottom, the water remains in the middle and any lighter FOG floats on the top. Only the filtered waste water flows into the drainage system.

Why Do I Need A Grease Trap?

It is vital that businesses have Grease Trap installation. The issue of large ‘bergs’ or ‘fatbergs’ in drainage systems, created from build-ups of fat and grease, have begun to impact on not only the free flowing of waste water but also the environment. For this reason authorities are now tracing ‘berg’ formations back to the source, which may result in the business being prosecuted.

  • Toilet unblocked

    John came within about half an hour of us phoning to clear the blocked toilet for an elderly friend recently out of hospital. He was fantastic. He found the problem quickly. Was very polite and helpful. We can’t praise him enough. Thank you.

  • Drains checked for possible rodents

    Tim was fantastic. We were trying to find out whether rats were using the drains to gain access to our property. We had only moved into the property recently and Jon found a second manhole cover that we didn’t know existed. He was very thorough, even checking under the sink for signs of entry. He also gave us good advice regarding the Water Company’s responsibilities regarding the drains. There is only one company we would use again and that is MAINTAIN DRAINS.

  • Very professional job

    Main drain was blocked about 12 meters down the pipe. Tim quickly identified the problem working from both ends of the drain and the blockage was cleared in 30 minutes. Rather than jumping straight to the power jet, he carefully examined the pipe and realized that the pipe was slightly degraded and that drain rods would be the best solution to avoid further damage to the pipe. He explained everything he did and his reasons for doing so. Fixed price so no surprises. A very professional job performed by a genuinely nice man. I recommend this company without reservation.
