It is important to ensure the grease trap is working effectively to ensure oils and liquid fats don’t enter the plumbing lines.  Once clogged you can have quite a mess on your hands.

Is it necessary to a clean grease trap?

To keep any commercial kitchen sanitary and clean, grease trap cleaning is necessary. When dishes, pots, pans, and other items are washed, the oil and grease go down the drain. The grease trap allows the plumbing system to function properly by capturing any waste that goes down the drain.

“Grease traps/interceptors and oil/water separators must be completely pumped out and cleaned at least once every 90 days. In addition, grease traps must be inspected (and excessive solids, fats, grease, and oil removed) at least once every 7 days.” According to the Orange County Government.
