How to Know When to Pump Your Grease Trap
Poorly maintained grease traps can lead to a myriad of issues. Some of the tell tale signs that your grease trap needs to be cleaned are as follows. Firstly, much like a septic tank, your drains are moving very slow or completely clogged. This is an early sign and best to get on top of it before it escalates any further. Worst case scenario, clogged pipes can lead to you having to close your restaurant down to get everything thoroughly cleaned.
Second most common indicator your grease trap needs to be pumped is when the grease in the trap comprises 25% of the total depth. If the reservoir is filled with more than 25% grease and oil, it can disrupt the function of the trap causing more problems down the road. Cleaning a grease trap that is 25% grease makeup is an EPA rule for health and safety reasons.
The final most common sign is a foul smell coming from the grease trap doors or in the kitchen. This stench does not go away after taking out the trash or cleaning the kitchen, which can tell you it's coming from the grease trap.
