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.

H K. from Duarte says:

He took the initiative to make sure everything worked properly and even helped move a toilet down to the garage. He also took the time and effort to answer all questions – great customer service! I had a positive experience thanks to these guys.


Emily W. from Temple City says:

The first person couldn’t fix it they run out a manager and they couldn’t fix it and their solution was that for $5800 they could tear up our pattio and access the sewer line. We said “no thank you” and called Western Router based on yelp reviews. We called at 4:30 in the afternoon and two guys were here by 5:30 and fixed the problem in less than 30 minutes. They were kind, courteous and efficient. I highly recommend this company.


Michael F. from Upland says:
