Drain Blockage and Overflows

Why Install A Grease Trap or Interceptor?
Within the the last decade the amount of food servicing establishments have more than quadroupled causing a large increase of grease and food waste contamination on the sewer sanitary line. Cities throughout Southern California are now enforcing for restaurants and other food servicing establishments to install a proper grease gravity divice also known as a grease trap or grease interceptor due to a large increase in the city sewer sanitation overflow (SSO).
Why Do We Have To Get Our Device Pumped Out?
Having a big and growing commercial kitchen at your restaurant, it is the best when you can meet the safety and health standard provided by the local and state government unless you want to be interrogated and temporarily closed by the local and state authority. In accordance to city waste water division, it is mandatory that restaurants and other food servicing establishments are vigorously cleaning their fats, oils and grease (FOG) separators on a timely manner.
It is the reponsibility of the business to follow all regulations set by the local municipalities to prevent any citations or closures. To prevent any plumbing problems such as drain blockage, device overflow or city citations the business must make sure that these devices do not exceed the allowed FOGS content limit. However, most of the restaurants with commercial kitchen often forget about their grease trap or grease interceptor in which can negatively affect the plumbing of the establishment. Therefore, it is highly suggested for the owner to set a scheduled maintenance service to reduce any plumbing problems and city citations
The 25% RuleThis rule indicates that when your device reaches a combined 25% grease and solid content, it is mandatory for it to be pumped out to prevent FOGS waste from escaping out of the device.
How Does It Work?
The picture below illustrates how the gravity settling process works in which the waste water going into the interceptor or trap in which is then separted by the water. With the use of gravity, the solid waste will settle in the bottom and fats, oils, grease will rise to the top only releasing a very minimal amount of waste into the city sewer line. Note that when both devices are below the 25% percent levels it may only intercept approximately 85% of solids and grease waste. Once the FOGS level are over the 25% percent, it becomes less effective in which it releases more contaminants into the city sewers.
