Common Grease Trap Issues

plumbing company

When working in a professional kitchen, grease traps are a necessary precaution to make sure fats, grease, and oils are removed from wastewater. Grease traps need regular and frequent maintenance and plumbing services to make sure that these work properly at all times. You also need to check the trap to prevent issues from becoming worse. 

Unfortunately, no matter how hard you try to stay on top of things, something will break down eventually and plumbing repairs may become necessary. There are a few common issues with grease traps that you will need to look over. A.M. Plumbing & Rooter discusses a few of them.

Rotten Odors

One of the most common issues with grease traps is a rotten odor. This can have a number of root causes, like damaged gaskets or buildup of sludge. When you notice an unpleasant odor coming from your grease trap, it is likely a result of inconsistent cleaning and maintenance. Be sure to reach out to our top local plumbing company to service the trap.

Clogged Lines

When one sees levels rising in any of the compartments of their grease trap, a line is likely clogged in the system. This is due to the buildup of fats, oils, and grease. This is very common in commercial kitchens and requires the expertise of an experienced plumber in Corona, CA.

Overflowing Grease Trap

Once you notice a grease trap with solids spilling over from one compartment to the next, this is likely due to a buildup of waste in the first part. This can be a very serious issue because it will cause all the lines to become clogged, as well. In this situation, emergency plumbing services may be advisable.
