Grease Trap Pumping

Serving Vancouver WA | Portland OR

Pacific Plumbing and Drain vacuum truck outside of Round Table restaurant. Pacific Plumbing and Drain provides grease trap pumping and grease trap cleaning services in Portland OR and Vancouver WA.

Grease traps, also known as grease interceptors are used in restaurants and other commercial establishments. They intercept oils and grease from wastewater before it enters the sewer system. Over time, this grease will build up and become thicker causing your grease traps to work less efficiently. This is why they must be regularly cleaned.

Failing to pump out your grease traps may result in big problems for your business including blockages and overflowing or violations and fines. With Pacific Plumbing and Drain’s grease pumping services, you’ll have peace of mind knowing you are working with one of the most reliable and eco-friendly companies in the industry.

Types of Grease Traps

There are 3 main types of grease traps commonly used in commercial businesses. They are:

  • Small passive, point-of-use grease traps located underneath or next to dishwashing machines
  • In-ground grease traps constructed of steel, fiberglass or concrete
  • Grease Recovery Devices (GRD) that automatically remove grease when trapped

How Does Grease Pumping Work?

At Pacific Plumbing and Drain, we use vacuum trucks for grease trap pumping. These trucks are equipped with enough suction power to remove even the thickest grease and waste from a grease trap. They then direct the waste to a containment tank where it will later be disposed of. We also scrape and rinse the grease trap to help extend its lifespan.

How Often do I need my Grease Traps Pumped?

Grease traps or grease interceptors must be pumped and cleaned when they are 25% full. Neglecting to have them cleaned will cause them to be less productive at recovering grease.
