Grease Traps are commonly found in cafes and restaurants, hotels and the catering industry. Anywhere there is a kitchen or production of food or beverages. A grease trap is a plumbing device designed to intercept most greases and solids before they enter a wastewater disposal system. Similar to a Cesspit over time a layer of grease and sediment builds up at the bottom of the trap blocking the flow of wastewater. A blocked grease trap can play havoc on a business, it can produce a stench encouraging vermin such as rats and mice, it presents a fire danger as gases build up and filter through the ventilation, and of course it presents bacteria health risk.
