Murphy's Grease Trap Maintenance Tips

It is important to clean your grease trap/interceptor regularly to prevent fats, oil and grease from mixing with water that is discharged to the sewer. The minimum cleaning frequency required for grease traps/interceptors in food service facilities is 90 days. However, more frequent cleaning intervals may be necessary to prevent your grease trap/interceptor from operating poorly or improperly. Grease can have a detrimental impact not only on your facility, but the environment as well. Clogged lines can back sewage up into your establishment and overflow out of manholes in parking lots and streets. If you see floating grease or grease deposits in a cleanout “downstream” of your trap/interceptor, you need to increase the cleaning frequency and initiate a more regular schedule.

Grease Trap Routine Maintenance Advice

It is recommended that a professional service be used to ensure proper maintenance. Since grease traps/interceptors may have an unpleasant odor. It is recommended that you have them cleaned prior to patrons visiting you establishment. Use Allen screws for securing the lid of your trap/interceptor instead of the conventional Phillips or slot screws. Phillips or slot screws may become stripped over time. Keep an extra gasket on site for your grease trap/interceptor’s lid to prevent leaks and odors in the event of a gasket failure. Develop and keep a grease trap/interceptor cleaning procedure and maintenance log sheet posted near the grease trap/interceptor to encourage employees to follow procedures and to promote proper documentation after each cleaning. Facilities experiencing high employee turnover or other factors making regular trap/interceptor maintenance difficult should consider using a professional service. Keep cleaning documentation for a period of not less than five years. Tips on cleaning your grease interceptor (less than 100 gallons) Prior to cleaning a grease interceptor (less than 100 gallons), let ice melt into the sink connected to the device. This will reduce odors and cause the grease to congeal, making grease removal easier. Remove grease periodically (weekly or more often is suggested), using a scoop. Remove only the grease and leave the water behind. At a minimum, clean and empty the entire contents of the grease interceptor once a month. Remove the grease, water, and any accumulated sludge on the bottom of the interceptor. Remove the cleanout at the end of the grease interceptor and perform a visual inspection to check for any grease deposits/build-up inside the pipe. Clean any greasy deposits from the piping so you can observe when new grease deposits form, and flush with hot soapy water before closing the cleanout. Make sure the flow directing baffles inside your grease interceptor are properly replaced after each cleaning.
