grease trap replacement and installation

At Trent’s Drains, we specialise in grease trap replacement and installation. Our engineers can meet your business’s requirements whether that’s upgrading and replacing an existing grease interceptor, or installing a new system for a new commercial kitchen. Our technicians are trained to install any system whilst minimising the disruption to your business. 

Having a grease trap installed allows you to manage any fat, oils and grease, ensuring your drainage system is up to legal standards. If you own a commercial kitchen or food manufacturer which produces hot food, having a grease trap installed is a legal requirement which is the establishment owner’s responsibility.

grease interceptor management and maintenance

Grease interceptors require regular maintenance including the removal of fats, oils and grease to ensure they stay working efficiently year round. If not managed correctly, the buildup of FOGs will block your drainage system, causing backups which can be serious for many reasons. 

Not only will this cause costly repairs which could be avoided with the correct maintenance, but this can also cause serious health hazards as you increase the risk of spreading harmful bacteria. You can also face legal actions and fines from your local council if not maintained correctly, as it can discharge FOG waste into a public sewer system. That’s why at Trent’s Drains, we offer FOG maintenance and management plans which can be discussed with our drainage experts.

Grease Trap Repair

If a grease trap becomes damaged, it’s important to get it repaired as soon as possible. This is because a damaged grease trap won’t be functioning efficiently, therefore you run the risk of blockages and backups in the sewer system. Grease traps can become damaged due to lack of proper maintenance, excessive FOG buildups, ageing, and general wear and tear. 

To minimise the risk of your grease trap needing to be repaired, use an established drainage company like Trent’s Drains to carry out our regular maintenance checks and FOG removal. If your grease interceptor does become damaged, we offer a 24/7 repair service so contact us as soon as possible. Leaving your damaged interceptor too long can increase the risk of it fully breaking which may require a full interceptor replacement which would be much more expensive.

Grease traps are also referred to as grease interceptors, fat traps, grease removal units, FOG traps, grease separators, and oil-water separators. Although grease trap is the most commonly used name, they are also referred to by all of these other names but they are all the same thing.  

A grease interceptor requires regular maintenance and cleaning to avoid any blockages, backups and damages to your interceptor. Cleaning your interceptor every 1-3 months is recommended but factors such as the size, capacity, and type of food establishment you own all affect the timeframe. At Trent’s Drains, we provide maintenance plans to ensure your FOG trap is cleaned, emptied and maintained as frequently as it should be. 

This will depend on the service you require such as installation, maintenance, or repairs. Each service takes a different amount of time and equipment, therefore affecting the cost. If you contact us with more information about the service you need, we will be able to provide you with a free no-obligation quote. 

Grease traps separate fat, oils and grease from water waste, allowing the water to travel through the sewage system whilst the FOG is stored in the trap to then be collected and discarded. To learn more about grease traps and how they work, view our grease trap article to learn much more.
