Grease Trap Installation Kent

Have you ever wondered what happens when you flush down debris, grease, oil, or fat down the drain after cooking or preparing food? All these things mix with the wastewater which might eventually pose a threat not just to your plumbing system, but to the environment as well. As these contaminants mix with water coming from the pipes installed at your home, they eventually get into your city’s waterways, causing pollution to the environment.

To ensure that your business does its part in helping keep the environment healthy, consider installing a commercial grease trap to filter out water waste. These grease traps are typically found in businesses such as:

  • Restaurants
  • Pubs and bars
  • Hotels
  • Cafes and bakeries

Its main purpose is to catch all the grease, oil, fat, and leftover food debris and separate it from the wastewater flowing through your kitchen drain. This will eventually help you dispose of any waste produced by your establishment in a way that’s approved by your city’s waste management department. Grease traps are designed to help maintain your city’s sewage system.

Commercial Grease Trap Installation Kent

You might be wondering how a grease trap works. Typically, when water with oil and fat goes through the drain and enters the grease trap, the rate at which the water flows gets reduced, following the idea that oil and fat is denser than water. The slower flow of water through the filters gives the oil, fat, and debris enough time to cool down, separating them into different areas of the grease trap where they all settle to be collected and disposed of properly.

Now that you have an idea on how a grease trap works and how it can benefit your business, you might be wondering how you’ll be able to install it. For something as complicated as a grease trap, you will want to enlist the help of a professional plumbing team to have one added to your plumbing system. This is to ensure that proper steps have been taken to install such a contraption as incorrectly doing so will defeat the purpose of having one.
