Why Grease Traps Need To Be Cleaned

The purpose of a grease trap is in the name itself: it “traps” grease and food solids from getting into the municipal wastewater collection system and causing backups down the line. That is why, by law, restaurants must have a grease trap and have it cleaned on a set frequency. Over time as the grease and food solids accumulate, the grease trap can back up into the restaurant, overflow into the parking lot, or simply create odors that can be bad for business.

When Is It Time For Grease Trap Cleaning?

Most restaurants pump out their traps anywhere from every 30 days to every 90 days. The rules in each municipality are different. Please see the link on our FAQ page to see the different requirements for different municipalities. At the same time, if your grease trap backs up or has a strong odor between pumpings, increasing your pumping frequency may fix the problem.

Grease Trap (Grease Interceptor) Sizes

The two main types of grease traps are indoor and outdoor. If it is indoor, it may be a black or silver box that is under the sink that sits on top of the kitchen floor. Sometimes the indoor traps are underneath the kitchen floor; so all you see is a rectangular piece of metal or plastic that can be pulled up. The sizes for indoor traps range from 10 to 200 gallons. Outdoor grease traps are typically under the parking surface or under the grass near the back of a kitchen. You can identify them by locating 2 or 3 manhole covers that are close together. These typically range in size from 500 to 3000 gallons.
