Dallas Grease Interceptor Pumping

Grease Interceptor Pumping Services in Dallas

Dallas, Texas is recognized as having an exceptionally large number of food service establishments per person. This means, that for grease interceptor service companies, many opportunities exist to reach out and help them stay worry free about their waste grease systems. Dallas Grease Interceptor Pumping has established a top-notch reputation for being the best in the region.

Without modern grease interceptors and related equipment, the city’s sewage system would be choked by insoluble grease, with massive amounts of fat and oil waste and food solids flooding the system each day, until it would eventually become overwhelmed and come grinding to a halt. Through the en genius engineering and hard work of experts, these devices effectively trap these contaminants before they can even reach the sewer pipe. The law requires this for the protection and integrity of the city’s sewage system.

Scheduling maintenance for your grease interceptor.

What kind of schedule should I maintain to properly keep my grease trap within compliance of the law?

Local authorities are dead serious about preventing grease, oil and food solid waste from entering the sewage system. Any blockage caused by these contaminants, as well as any oil spills, are almost certain to be met with stiff fines or even forced closures, until compliance is met. Your maintenance schedule depends upon the size of your containment enclosure and the amount of oily and/or greasy food you are preparing. Of course, if you’re operating a restaurant catering to vegans, the interval between cleanings will be drastically increased.

Because of these differences, your food service establishment could require monthly pumping and cleaning, that is, if you prepare food using lots of oil and/or grease, or you may just need to pump it twice per year, if you seldom use grease or oil for your preparation. Most jurisdictions require that your containment tanks never exceed 30% of capacity. So, the rule of thumb is to pump and clean when yours reaches 25%

The “25%” Factor.

Due to the increased risk of hazardous overflow of grease, oil and food solids into the sewer system or into the environment when the grease trap tank capacity reaches 30%, a 25% industry standard was implemented to avoid the chance of such an event occurring. Keeping the amount below the 30% threshold is a prudent safety requirement to avoid problems later down the line.

You should always keep in mind this as a magic figure to aim to. After all, even in very large tanks, where overflowing is much more difficult, the 25% rule will still apply, at least in the eyes of the Seattle’s health inspectors, who are quick to issue fines and penalties the second your tank goes above 30%.

What should the schedule be for the smaller indoor grease interceptor traps?

Due to the fact that many food preparation establishments require only an indoor grease interceptor, the intervals between cleaning should be much less than for outdoor interceptor tanks of much higher capacity. Indoor grease interceptors of five to fifty gallons are often used by small, neighborhood establishments. Because of the small capacity of these tanks in relation to the voluminous capacity of the outdoor variety, these tanks should be scheduled to be pumped and cleaned at least once per month, if not sooner.

What about the scheduled intervals of underground interceptor traps located outdoors?

Large food service establishments find it impractical to install the 750 to 5000 gallon grease interceptor tanks within the walls of the building. For this reason, they typically opt for installing them outdoors, as this also makes room for more complex plumbing and, of course, the massive tanks themselves. Many such users find it practical to install the grease interceptor system and tank located under the parking lot or sidewalk. Although it is quite an additional expense and more time-consuming, there will be a big savings on maintenance, since such a large capacity grease interceptor tank requires upkeep only two to four times per year.

My grease interceptor or grease trap is just not working as well as it used to.

Let us Solve That Problem With Our Hydro Jet Cleaning Service!

When a grease interceptor system is first installed, it is perfectly clean and free flowing. At first, just utilizing a tank pumping service works like a charm to get it back to new operating condition. But after time, grease waste deposits build up on the sides, the bottom and even at the openings of intake and drainage plumbing, leading to increased frequency of blockages which eventually may lead to hazardous and costly overflows. This cannot be remedied by simple pumping.

Introducing our hydro jet cleaning system! With our hydro jet cleaning system, we literally blast away any deposits through the use of massive water pressure, up to 3500 PSI. This easily blows away any amount of layers of thick, sticky deposits that grease leaves behind. When this is scheduled to be performed periodically, your grease interceptor system will always be operating just like new!
