Installing a Grease Trap In Warminster
Grease traps are a necessary part of the plumbing in commercial kitchens, but they can be messy and smelly. Grease builds up quickly in the pipes and makes it difficult for grease to flow smoothly through the trap. If you don't clean out the grease regularly, it will build up until the pipe gets blocked entirely and starts to leak onto your customer's floor or countertop.
This can be a big problem, especially if your client has no idea why their kitchen sink or dishwasher is overflowing with water! That's where we come in: We'll be happy to help you clean out any grease traps that might be causing problems for your clients so you can focus on other parts of their business instead.
Grease traps are a required part of commercial kitchen plumbing
Grease traps are required by law to be present in commercial kitchens. They are used to collect and dispose of grease, which can then be disposed of safely. A grease trap is a part of a restaurant's plumbing system, so it's important to keep it in good working order. It also prevents the spread of bacteria into the environment when you cook or prepare food using your kitchen equipment.
They have to be cleaned regularly, which is not a service you can offer to just any client
If you're a contractor, it's important to be aware of how much-specialized training and equipment are required for this type of work. You cannot just walk into a restaurant and clean the grease trap. In fact, there are legal regulations that govern who can do this kind of job and how they must go about doing it.
You have to be licensed by your local health department in order to offer this service, and you should exercise due caution when performing any tasks related to the collection or disposal of wastewater from commercial kitchens.
It's important to keep grease traps well-maintained
It is important to keep your grease trap well-maintained.
Grease traps can become clogged and cause a backup of sewage. This is dangerous for the environment and can be costly as well.
If you do not properly maintain your grease trap, it can become clogged and sewage will back up into your sink or bathtub.
Clients will appreciate the careful attention and service you provide during these calls.
When you’re called to a client’s house or business premises to clean their grease trap, it's important to be prepared. You need to know how to operate the equipment that will remove any debris from the container.
This includes being able to read a grease trap and identify what kind of material is in there. A standard kitchen sink trap may contain remnants from food preparation and cleaning, as well as hair, soap scum, and other residue -- but if you are going into commercial kitchens where large amounts of meat products are cooked on site, then you may find yourself with some pretty nasty stuff stuck inside (think beef fat).
It’s also important that you bring all the proper tools for cleaning out a clogged pipeline or commercial kitchen sink trap line: these include power augers or snake rods used by plumbers; long-handled brushes designed specifically for getting at hard-to-reach areas; high-pressure water jets designed specifically for breaking up sticky substances or solids like gristle; hand plungers designed specifically for clearing clogs manually without relying too much on chemical cleaners which would otherwise damage pipes themselves over time due their harsh nature towards metal surfaces such as brass fittings found within plumbing systems today.
You'll need a few tools on hand when you come to clean out a grease trap
A few tools are necessary for cleaning a grease trap. At the very least, you'll need:
A spade or shovel
A screwdriver that can fit into the clean-out lid of your trap (if there is one). If not, don't worry; we'll get to that later.
You may also want to have on hand:
Pliers—to help pull out stubborn clogs or other debris.
Finally, if your grease trap has an access point with a removable cap on it (an “eye”), you can use this eye as an opening point when starting to unclog your line and get into those hard-to-reach areas in the pipe itself. Just be sure not to use anything flimsy like plastic here—it will break off easily! Instead opt for something sturdy like metal so you can get all of those nasty bits out without breaking anything else along the way!
