Grease Trap

Grease traps (also known as grease interceptors, and grease recovery devices) are plumbing devices designed to intercept most greases and solids before they enter a wastewater disposal system.

A grease trap is used to reduce the amount of fats, oils and greases (FOG’s) that enter the main sewers. Effectively grease trap interceptors are boxes within the drain run that are located between the kitchen sinks and the sewer system. They only have waste water flowing through them and are not served by any other drainage system such as a toilet.
