What Is A Grease Trap?
A grease trap, also commonly known as a grease interceptor, is a plumbing device that intercepts grease and solid waste before entering your wastewater system. While your septic system is made to hold a certain amount of grease and waste, a trap helps preserve the functionality of your system and protect your pipes. To catch the grease, the trap works to separate the sludge from the water and keep your pipes clear of potential buildup.
When Should You Have Your Grease Trap Cleaned?
Depending on use, you should generally get your grease traps cleaned every few months. If you are operating an especially busy business, getting your traps pumped more frequently may be beneficial. Another good way to tell if it is time to call a professional at NoCo Septic is if a quarter of your grease trap is filled with fats, oils, grease, or solids. If you are unsure whether your trap needs to be pumped, then contact our team and we will come to take a look for you.

What Happens When You Skip Grease Trap Cleaning Appointments?
It may be easy to put off getting your grease trap cleaned. However, there are some serious consequences that can occur when your trap becomes too full.
Failing to make sure your grease trap is properly cleaned can result in:
- Foul smells – A grease trap holds a lot of rotting matter that will start to smell over time. While these traps are often outside, the foul smell will build up and can make its way through the pipes and into your property.
- Damage to your tank – Sulfuric acid that is created as a result of food breaking down can be especially toxic to the walls of your grease trap’s tank.
- Clogs – If your grease trap is not cleaned regularly, you risk impeding the flow of water throughout your drains.
- Future problems – Skipping grease trap cleaning appointments means that materials will solidify and become harder to clean down the line.
