about drain interceptors

Drain interceptors are used to stop contaminants from entering the drainage system and store them until the interceptor is emptied. This stops contamination such as oil, grease, petrol and chemicals entering surface water drains which could lead to environmental contamination. Drain interceptors are an effective way of keeping contaminants separate from wastewater which will be sent back to its designated sewer system.
