Grease Trap Backing Up Pembroke Pines, FL

Grease Trap Backing Up

restaurant kitchen

Florida state regulations require that all commercial kitchens use a grease trap to filter fat, oil, and grease that has been poured down the sink. Having faulty equipment can lead to some big problems that end up costing your business millions of dollars, or even shut you down completely.

When Your Grease Trap Is Backing Up

The main function of a grease trap is to prevent your commercial kitchen sink from backing up.  So, if you notice that your sink is in fact getting clogged, then that’s a sign your grease trap isn’t working properly.

Perhaps your trap isn’t separating grease and fat the way it should, or there may be complications with the grease trap flow restrictor. Somehow the trap might be allowing materials to slip through the drain causing the backup, or you may even have a clogged line due to the pipes containing grease that has solidified.

Usually, these issues aren’t things that happen suddenly, but rather they start gradually. As such, getting these problems addressed at first sight will hopefully prevent you from having to deal with a big disaster.

Caring for Your Grease Trap

Regular inspections and maintenance can prevent grease trap issues and keep your kitchen working smoothly. This includes having your grease trap drained at least every 180 days or sooner if needed to prevent overflow.  Some facilities get their traps cleaned as often as twice a month.
