Protect Your Business and the Environment

Regulations on releasing FOG (fats, oils, and grease) into wastewater systems have been around for decades. More recently, states and cities have implemented their own laws for regulating these substances. Maintaining compliance is important both to protect your own business, but also to protect public waste systems and the environment. FOG that finds its way into the wild can do damage to ecosystems and the inhabitants.

Zoom Drain of Philadelphia is committed to helping businesses and the environment through managing grease interceptors and trapping systems.

The Solution for Maintenance and Upkeep of Grease Traps and Grease Interceptors

Backed-up drains in your kitchen might not just be a blockage in your drainage system, but could be a result from a full or under-maintained grease trap/interceptor. Leaving your systems unchecked can lead to costly back-ups and down-time in a busy kitchen. Vacuuming and cleaning these vital points help prolong the life of these units - not to mention keeps your back of house operating smoothly. With Zoom Pumping, we’re your all-in-one provider for grease trap cleaning and pumping. We take care of both!

How does Zoom Pumpingfor grease traps work?

Grease traps and interceptors are designed to remove grease, fats, oils and food solids from your drains before they reach your main sewer. They need to be properly maintained on regular intervals to ensure proper functionality. Our technicians provide professional recommendations of scheduled cleanings to help avoid blockages throughout your entire property that could result in issues with the Department of Health and your local municipality.

Our vacuum trucks are engineered for grease, with bigger pumps and a tank that holds up to 2,000 gallons of sludge and has hose that can reach up to 300 feet - extending to those hard to reach indoor grease traps and large interceptors with ease.

In addition, our technicians come equipped with water jets for pressure washing after pumping, leaving the inside spotless and clear of debris. We also clean the inlets and outlets of the traps, going one step further to ensure easy flow throughout your system. To finish, we supply enzymes and degreasers to keep your traps operating smoothly and efficiently, thanks to the efficient and high quality service you’ve come to expect from us.
