My grease trap is overflowing, why?


If your grease trap is overflowing, there is most likely a clog in the outgoing line from the grease trap to the county sewer. The grease trap should be serviced more frequently. The outgoing line should be jetted out at least once a year.

NOTE: Cleaning the grease trap is not the same as cleaning the lines; both are of equal importance and should be performed on a regular basis!
