Grease Traps


How They Work

    Waste water from dishwashers, sinks, and floor

drains contain various amounts of fats, oil, and

grease, which must be removed from the wastewater

stream. This waste passes down drainpipes that lead

to the grease trap. The grease traps' job is to slow the

flow of water and allow it to cool inside the grease trap. As the water cools in the grease trap, fats, oils and grease float to the top. The water flows out through the outlet while the fat, oil, and grease is "trapped" inside the grease trap.

The Importance of Maintenance

     The pumping and cleaning out of a grease trap is a necessary part of maintenance. Whatever the interval of the cleaning may be, the quality of the cleaning will have a major effect on how the grease trap will perform. Most common grease trap odors are usually the result of improper or incomplete cleaning.

     When a grease trap is properly maintained it will help prevent many unpleasant backups within the sewer system and help keep any unpleasant odors from entering your establishment.

Why Choose Ameri-Loo?

     At Ameri-Loo we not only pump the entire contents of the grease trap, we also clean the side walls and hard to reach corners and as part of our cleaning process we also inspect the grease trap to make sure it is able to operate properly.

     Ameri-Loo specializes in the maintenance of "remote" grease traps which are located inside the premises of many different establishments. With our "Portable Grease Vacuum" we are able to clean many traps that a standard pump truck is unable to reach. We are also often able to schedule our cleanings before or after normal business hours to meet our customers needs and eliminate any unnecessary disruptions during their normal course of business.
