Grease Traps

Commercial food outlets are required by law to have a grease trap. Grease traps are used to “catch” the grease and solids before they enter the sewerage system. These need to be pumped regularly, anywhere between 4 & 12 weeks, depending on volume. Sandgroper Contracting is accredited by the Water Corporation, and are part of the FogMAN programme. We can provide a regular pump out schedule for your grease trap.

Grease traps, also known as grease interceptors, grease arrestors, grease recovery devices and grease converters stop fat and oil residues from entering the waste water network. They provide a receptacle where more than 90% of FOG residues can be temporarily stored.

In a busy restaurant, for example, small droplets of oil and particles of food which escape being scraped into the solid waste bin are washed off and enter the waste water system. To prevent these fats and oils from entering the main waste water system, grease traps are installed, usually underground.
