What is a Grease Trap?

A grease trap is a plumbing device designed to intercept most greases and solids before they enter a wastewater system. Common wastewater contains small amounts of oils which enter into septic tanks and treatment facilities to form a floating scum layer. Common wastewater contains small amounts of oils which enter into septic tanks and treatment facilities to form a floating scum layer. This scum layer is very slowly digested and broken down by microorganisms in the anaerobic digestion process. Large amounts of oil from food preparation in restaurants can overwhelm a septic tank or treatment facility, causing release of untreated sewage into the environment. High-viscosity fats and cooking grease such as lard solidify when cooled, and can combine with other disposed solids to block drain pipes.
