Grease Trap Services in Plano, TX

If you’ve got a grease trap on your property in Plano, TX, it’s because they are mandatory to have in order to keep the public sewer line from clogging up with fats, grease, and oil. It helps to protect your own property too, and it ensures that there’s not sewage backing up through your commercial kitchen’s sink all the time.

However, a grease trap can only do its job properly if it is well maintained. You need to ensure it gets the services necessary to drain properly. And you must have it pumped out from time to time so that it does not overfill. Any commercial property that has a grease trap requires the help of a professional plumber. Make Hutchins Plumbing & Air Conditioning your go-to source for grease trap maintenance in Plano, TX, or call us for new installation or replacement. We’ve been in business for over 40 years!

What’s a Grease Trap?

A grease trap is designed to stop grease from moving into the sewer system, an event that could cause a lot of damage to your sewer system and to the public system. It helps to separate grease and oils from the liquid wastewater that would otherwise move down the sewer with ease. Grease moves to the top of the tank while liquid waste flows out of a pipe and into the municipal sewer system.

The problem with fats, grease, and oils (what plumbers refer to as FOG) is that these substances can solidify when they cool. Even though a pan full of hot oil may make it appear as though the oil would move through the sewer system with ease, the appearance of the oil is deceptive. As the pipes cool down, these substances solidify. Within your pipes, grease can build up in solid form until it eventually reduces the volume in the pipes and blocks wastewater from moving down and into the sewer system.

Schedule Grease Trap Pumping

Eventually, the grease, fats, and oils that build up at the top of your grease interceptor will need somewhere to go. And it can’t just be thrown in the trash or flushed into the sewer system, of course. From time to time, commercial kitchen owners need to hire professionals to pump the grease trap and get rid of all of that FOG buildup. Never neglect this service. Work with our plumbers to figure out how often you’ll need grease trap cleaning services and to learn what else you can do to maintain the system.
