Why Grease Traps Must Be Installed & Maintained
Any food-related business owner will understand that over the course of a single day, commercial sink drains see a significant amount of grease and oil. Grease traps are designed to capture grease particles before they move deeper into sewer pipes and begin to cause damage and form blockages.
Due to the heavy amount of grease that need to be captured on a daily basis, a grease trap requires frequent cleaning and maintenance. If a grease trap is not working properly due to neglect, the consequences can be steep. According to Seattle Public Utilities, businesses who do not comply with regulations will be charged heavy fines ranging from $250 t0 $5,000 or, worse, you may even be liable to pay for damages to the municipal sewer system.
