While several substances can go down drains with no problem, others cannot. For example, heavy amounts of food, oil, and grease can quickly cause problems. Drain and sewer clogs are inevitable once such substances start to make their way down and they can cause harm to both the environment and your water. On the bright side, a commercial grease trap installation is a great solution. Grease traps are designed to catch most of the grease and oil before it ever hits your commercial sink drain. Grease and oils are less dense than water and tend to naturally separate, allowing for grease-free water to travel through the trap with ease. Eventually, the grease trap will have to be emptied and the process starts over.
Who might need a grease trap installation?
Simply put, any facility that has a commercial kitchen would benefit from one. However, restaurants are the most common because of such a high percentage of grease and food waste. Restaurants have mass amounts of food being produced each and every day. As you can imagine, this puts lots of strain on a sink drain and problems will accumulate quickly. By scheduling a commercial sink drain installation, you’re preventing any plumbing problems that would result in profit loss. Other facilities may have a commercial kitchen as well. These included, but are not limited to: schools, universities, hotels, churches, and hospitals. If you’re a business owner and can relate to any of these, you should consider a grease trap installation as soon as possible.
Can I perform an installation myself?
Unfortunately, the answer is no. While it may seem like a simple task, a lot goes into a grease trap installation. Because you’re dealing with commercial businesses, inspections and safety codes are involved. You must have a certified plumbing permit in order to complete an installation. Grease traps have different plumbing codes that must be followed in commercial facilities. Lucky for you, FloGuard is here to save the day.
