Grease traps are the ideal way to prevent grease from entering your wastewater. They will trap the grease so that you can properly dispose of it. There are many wonderful benefits of grease traps that will benefit your kitchen, whether it is a commercial kitchen or a home kitchen. Our top three advantages to installing grease traps are:

  1. Prevent FOG – The number one advantage of grease traps is their ability to stop grease from entering the main waterlines. FOG stands for fats, oils, and grease. These elements float to the top of the grease trap, while the cooler water sinks to the bottom and drains away.

Three Advantages of Grease Traps

  1. Environmentally Friendly – When you install grease traps you are doing your part to help prevent oils from entering our streams, rivers, and oceans. Instead of allowing your kitchen FOG to enter our natural waterways, it can be recycled at specialized treatment plants to be turned into agricultural mulch.
  2. Cost-effective – When you have a grease trap installed you are helping to prevent larger and more costly repairs to sewers. If the FOG from your kitchen is improperly disposed of it may solidify in the sewers which will cause costly shutdowns and repairs.
