5 Benefits of Having Grease Traps Regularly Pumped

Septic Services LakelandPosted bySeptic Services LakelandAugust 20th, 2021

1. Less build-up of FOGs (fats, oils, and greases) in the system means it will function effectively for a longer period of time.

2. Clogged grease traps can prevent waste water from flowing easily out of plumbing fixtures and can also possibly result in FOGs entering the wastewater stream – leading to possible complaints/fines from local authorities.

Benefits of Having Grease Traps Regularly Pumped3. It’s generally cheaper to maintain a grease trap system than repair it. If grease traps are allowed to clog up without ever being pumped out or maintained, they can malfunction – causing an emergency repair that will be inconvenient, possibly even halting business operations for a time, and most likely more expensive than regular pumping and maintenance.

4. Clogged grease traps can cause damage to the local environment.

5. Grease traps that aren’t regularly pumped out can result in gas and noxious odor build up. Regular clearing cuts this risk.
