Grease Trap Repair FAQs

What do grease traps do?

Grease traps, as the name implies, trap grease produced in commercial kitchens to prevent it from clogging the plumbing system. Commercial kitchens use much more grease and oil than the average household.

Without a grease trap, the grease washed off of dishes goes down the drain and into the plumbing system. This could quickly lead to clogs, disrupting the kitchen, causing water damage, and rupturing pipes.

Grease traps use a series of filters, known as baffles, to trap and filter out the grease from the wastewater. The water is allowed into the plumbing system while the grease remains inside the trap.

Every so often, the grease trap must be cleaned out to ensure it works properly. If it isn’t cleaned, it will stop capturing grease effectively, rendering it useless.

Is it better to repair or replace a grease trap?

In most cases, it is better to repair a grease trap than replace one. This is because replacing a grease trap is more expensive than hiring someone to repair it.

Broken grease traps can usually be repaired without too much fanfare. They commonly experience problems like clogged filters or broken baffles, which can quickly be fixed with proper replacement parts.

Still, there are situations in which replacement is the better option. If the grease trap repeatedly breaks down after repair, it may have reached the end of its lifespan. In this case, you should consider replacing the unit.
