What kinds of businesses need a Grease Trap Pump? says “In Austin, a grease trap is required for any commercial or institutional food service operation.”

What is a grease trap/grease interceptor?

A grease trap (or interceptor) is a plumbing device designed to physically separate grease and solids from kitchen wastewater.

What is the difference between a grease trap and a grease interceptor?

Grease trap’s and grease interceptors are both plumbing devices for grease removal from industrial wastewater discharge streams. The grease trap is generally thought of as the smaller indoor device, usually with between 20 and 150 gallons of liquid holding capacity, and, until recently, typically installed below a sink. Grease traps are usually made of steel and often designed with just a single compartment. The grease interceptor is generally considered the large pre-cast concrete tank, typically with a liquid holding capacity anywhere from 250 to 5,000 gallons and designed with two separate compartments. For the purposes of this website, the term “grease trap” is used to describe both devices.

How often must my grease trap be cleaned?

The Austin City Code specifies all grease traps must be completely emptied and cleaned by a licensed hauler at least once every three months or more frequently if, before three months, the grease and solids in the trap’s final compartment accumulate to 50% or more of the wetted height of the trap. The perfect clean-out frequency will vary for each business. Most grease traps should be pumped at least once every 30 to 45 days.

What’s included your Grease Trap Pumping Service?

We do a thorough pump out and rinse of the grease trap. Once clean, we check the inlet and crossover to make sure they are clear then check the outlet to make sure it is draining out properly. Finally, we’ll inspect for any issues such as cracks or problems with the inlet or outlet T.

The pic above is looking down into another grease trap that had recently been pumped (not by us) and the job was not done properly. This clogged the pipeline you see which caused a major backup and overflow onto city streets. After pumping out all the grease the trap should be thoroughly washed out, something we do every single time. Unfortunately, we this happen too often when clients try to save a few bucks.

Where does the grease go?

Grease trap waste must be transported to a properly permitted disposal site by a liquid waste hauler licensed by the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality and permitted by the City of Austin. Trip ticket manifest documentation procedures must be followed in accordance with applicable regulations.
