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.

Juanita B. from Altadena says:

Justn and Omar replaced our leaking water heater. 2 nd time they have assisted us within a year for our plumbing needs. They are fantastic and very reliable. We love how efficient they operate.


Nicole S. from Pasadena says:

Justin Goytia and Omar Hernández were fantastic in all aspects. They were very respectful, punctual and hard working. They explained everything that needed to be done and kept us posted every step of the way. It was a two day job and as promised it was completed in a timely manner. We will definitely ask for Justin and Omar if we ever need anymore work done in the future.


Steve L. from Burbank says:

[Danny] was very helpful in explaining how everything worked and what preventative measures to take in the future. He gave some great old school service which is hard to find these days. Price was fair. Would definitely recommend to my neighbors and friends.
