What are Grease Traps?
Grease traps, also known as grease interceptors, are plumbing devices used to prevent grease, oil, and fat from seeping into the water waste management system. Prevention is necessary for both environmental and maintenance reasons. Grease traps prevent the unnecessary waste from flowing into local waterways and eventually oceans. They also prevent major plumbing issues from occurring. As fat, oil, and grease cools, it hardens and attaches to the siding of pipes, over time this buildup will cause major blockage and can result in extremely expensive plumbing repairs.
If you are a food establishment owner in the SLO county area it is important you have a grease trap system installed in your business, and perform routine maintenance. SLO County Plumbing are experts in installing grease traps and can assist in properly maintaining your system.
