Grease Traps

What is a grease trap?

Simply put, a grease trap is a receptacle that kitchen wastewater flows through before entering the sanitary sewer lines. This receptacle captures, or “traps” grease. How? Grease, the industry term for animal fats and vegetable oils, is 10 to 15% less dense, or lighter than water. Grease is also immiscible with water, which is to say it does not mix with water. Thus, grease and oils float on water. When kitchen wastewater flows through a grease trap, the grease and oils rise to the surface and are trapped inside the receptacle using a system of baffles. The captured grease and oils fill the trap from the top down, displacing “clean” water out of the bottom of the trap and into the sanitary sewer line. This is whyyou see a grease “mat” when observing a grease trap. When a significant layer of grease has accumulated, the trap must be cleaned out. Western Rooter installs Grease Traps and we provide free estimates, so don’t hesitate to call.

Steve W. from Arcadia says:

Within 2 hours of my call, Danny Maldonado came with full load of equipment. He did an excellent job and clean the whole sewer pipe without additional charge.


John B. from San Dimas says:

The previous plumber I had out couldn’t fix the problem. Western Rooter cleared out the clogged sewer line using the latest technology and even used a camera to make sure the line was perfectly clear.


S R. from Anaheim says:

Carlos called and spoke to my father (Senior Citizen on a fixed income) soon after the initial call to Stefanie and he scheduled to come out to see the issue, quote the job and schedule a time to make the repairs with my father. I must say that my father was extemely happy to hear the quote was reasonable and that they could come the following day to start repairs. There were three gentlemen that came, but since Carlos was the last to leave, he’s the only name I have. These three fellows were excellent! They were curtious, did great work and had great personalities!
