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.

Susie K. from Los Angeles says:

Danny Maldonado was our service technician. He came at the agreed upon time, and was very pleasant. He cleared the laundry drain, and also gave handy tips on how we could prevent further blockage by keeping the lint from going down the drain.


Carlos R. from Moorpark says:

Moved into a new house and found the washer line was leaking. Needed someone to come right away on a Sunday and found these guys. Stephanie was helpful on the phone and Carlos showed up on time and took care of the leak.


B F. from Glendale says:

After our normal plumber could not clear our clogged kitchen drain, he recommended that I call Western Rooter. After reading the Yelp reviews, I gave them a call and i was not diappointed. I got an appointment right away and Omar Hernandez came over that day.
