What is a Grease Trap?

Grease and oil from the kitchen or bathrooms sink enters into the septic tank and forms a scum layer. A grease trap (A.K.A. grease interceptor) intercepts grease and solids before they enter the wastewater disposal system. The septic system breaks down the microorganisms.

If there is a large amount of grease that overtakes the grease traps, the trap clogs up and backs up the entire system. Therefore, we’ll need to unclog the trap. We recommend hiring a professional to perform this service instead of attempting to do it yourself.

Is Your Grease Trap Clogged or Just Full?

The grease trap in any fixture catches the grease and other “junk” in your plumbing system since it usually is one of the first components that water hits when you flush a toilet or turn on a faucet. Therefore, it is likely to encounter problems such as:

If the system does not correctly pump the material, the grease trap will fill up. Consequently, the waste from the first compartment spills over into the second one. This clogs the crossover and the lines. If the clog extends to the bottom of the trap, it’s time for grease trap pumping.
Grease traps channel fat, oil, and grease through two compartments. The first compartment separates materials. The second compartment pumps waste into the sewer. A clog in the crossover pipe causes the liquid level in the first one to be elevated, while that of the second remains normal. This type of blockage stops the entire system from working.
A clog in the outgoing line leads to overflows in both compartments. The blockage is either in your outgoing line or the city main. The only way to prevent this problem is to have your system regularly pumped and cleaned by a Stars and Pipes grease trap expert.

Our experts will come empty and clean out your grease trap any time it’s too full or even clogged.

Our Grease Trap Cleaning Process

Cleaning the grease trap is a relatively simple process:

  • Inspection | First, we inspect the trap to see how full it is. Generally, grease traps should be emptied and cleaned before they are brimming with fluids. This is because grease traps allow grease down the drain when they’re roughly 25 percent full.
  • Clear Out the Blockage | We run a line down into the grease trap to completely clear out the blockage and remove the grease.
  • Replace The Grease Trap | This step is not common in our line of work. However, if the grease trap is beyond clearing out, we may need to replace the trap. This procedure is relatively easy and inexpensive. By replacing the trap, we can ensure that the grease and water will flow freely to prevent a backup in your plumbing system.
  • Plumbing Tips: We do more than perform grease trap cleaning services. We can also give you tips for how to prevent your grease trap from building up so that you save money on future plumbing maintenance.
