Manhattan, KS Grease Trap Services by M & S Plumbing, Heating and Air Conditioning, Inc.

Grease and oil are used in all sorts of cooking across the country. While that’s all well and good, disposing of these materials is actually a pretty significant problem. While grease and oil may be liquids during the cooking process, they quickly solidify into semi–solid masses once they are poured down the drain. When this happens, they start to block the flow of water through the pipes in your plumbing. This can cause clogs, gum up the blades of your garbage disposal, and generally make your life a lot harder.

There are some simple solutions to this, such as freezing the liquids and then throwing them in the trash. However, if you’re a large company that handles a lot of grease and oils, like a restaurant, then that kind of solution wouldn’t really work. For those companies that need to be able to quickly and safely dispose of grease and oil, a grease trap is the best option. If you need a grease trap installed or serviced, call M & S Plumbing, Heating and Air Conditioning, Inc. today.  

M & S Plumbing, Heating and Air Conditioning, Inc. offers grease trap services in Manhattan, KS and the surrounding areas.

Grease Trap Installation

So, what is a grease trap? A grease trap, also called a grease interceptor, is a tank that is designed to capture any grease, oil, or other solid waste that may be traveling down your kitchen’s wastewater line before it has a chance to mess with the pipes. Think of it as being a little bit like a septic tank, meant to catch and store waste until it can be pumped out. As the grease enters the grease trap, it rises to the top of the tank. Meanwhile, water flows through the trap and out into the main sewer line. This keeps the grease in the trap, while allowing water to keep flowing through the system.

Installing a grease trap is something best left to professionals, especially if you’re trying to have a commercial model installed. If the trap is improperly installed, it may not successfully separate grease from the water flowing through it. A malfunctioning grease trap is a useless grease trap. So, don’t trust just anybody to handle your grease trap installation. We have many years of experience dealing with grease trap installation and repair. If you need a grease trap installed, we can take care of it for you.

Grease Trap Cleaning

Grease traps, similar to devices like septic tanks and air filters, have no way to get rid of the waste that they collect. This means that every few months, you’re going to need to have your grease trap cleaned out in order to make room for more. This often involves removing a lot of solid waste from the trap, especially if it serves a commercial property. With that in mind, it is best to have you grease trap cleaned out by professionals. That way, you can be sure that it is done as quickly and cleanly as possible.

If you think you may need a grease trap installed on your property, or if you already have one that needs to be cleaned, call M & S Plumbing, Heating and Air Conditioning, Inc..
