Grease Trap Services
Businesses throughout Los Angeles, San Diego, and Orange County are responsible for keeping grease out of the city’s sanitary system. If you own a restaurant, manage a manufacturing plant or other type of business that disposes of grease, we know you do everything to prevent this from happening. However, even though you may take precautions about what you pour down the drain, small amounts of grease can still get through. If your grease interceptor (GI) isn’t working properly, the need for sewer line repairs increases.
A grease interceptor (GI) removes grease, fat, oils, and solids from getting into the municipal sanitary system. It is an effective device that keeps the grease and solid content level in a commercial plumbing system at or below 30%. Unfortunately, even 30% escaping from the GI is still a problem. That is why at Wise Choice Plumbing & Rooter, we recommend that companies have their lines hydro-jetted and pumped once every 6-12 months.
Failing to maintain your building’s lines leads to back-ups, expensive plumbing repairs, and untimely closures. As your neighborhood plumber, Wise Choice Plumbing & Rooter is ready to help you today with all your grease trap pumping needs.
The Pumping & Cleaning Process
The pumping and cleaning process requires several steps that not all companies choose to complete. Our licensed and insured plumbers take care to complete each step carefully and entirely. GIs have one or more manholes and chambers. If your building’s GI has multiple chambers, it’s crucial that each one has its lid removed and pumped until it is empty. To do this, it’s necessary to pump from the top to the bottom. Why is this? Well, because even though it may look like there is only a layer of grease on the top, it is highly likely that there are solids sitting at the bottom of the tank. To reach the solids, everything must be pumped from the top.
Customers beware! Some companies will quote a very low price for grease trap pumping, but not service the entire chamber. These dishonest companies only skim the grease off the top and call it a day. That type of grease trap pumping isn’t doing you any favors.
