If you own or manage a restaurant in the Montgomery County, MD area, you know how often fat, oil, and grease (FOG) is washed down the sink—and if you don’t have a grease trap or grease abatement device, this can cause serious problems for your plumbing. As FOG cools, it hardens and accumulates on the sidewalls of the pipes, and, over time, this buildup will restrict the flow and cause blockages in the pipes that can lead to incredibly expensive plumbing repairs. Additionally, local, state, and municipal grease regulations require all food service establishments to have grease traps installed.

There are three main reasons to install a grease trap in your restaurant:
Compliance with grease regulations – one of the most important reasons to schedule your grease trap installation today is to comply with local, state, and federal grease regulations. The Washington Suburban Sanitary Commission (WSSC) requires all food service establishments to have a grease trap installed in an effort to reduce and eliminate sanitary sewer overflows by preventing backups in the pipes.
Plumbing maintenance – if grease builds up in your own drains and pipes, it can eventually lead to a backup which will require cleaning or possibly plumbing repair and/or replacement down the road, depending on the severity of the blockage.
Safety – as the grease builds up in the pipes, it can lead to blockages in the sewer collection system, pumping stations, and wastewater treatment plants. When these backups occur, they can lead to overflow from manholes, sewers, and more, causing health and safety concerns for area residents.
