FAQ for Grease Trap in Mobile

What is the purpose of a grease trap in Mobile?

A grease trap is a device that is installed in between the kitchen sink and the sewer system. Grease traps in Mobile are strategically placed in that location because their main purpose is to trap fats, oils, and greases that go down the sink and separate them in a containing box. This process is essential because these three waste materials, if not filtered, can damage septic tanks and wastewater facilities which may lead to bigger problems. Oils and greases can also clog drainage pipes if they happen to combine with other solid waste products.

Does a grease trap in Mobile also act as a garbage disposal unit?

No. Garbage disposal units and grease traps in Mobile are two different devices. Garbage disposal units shred leftover foods and filter them to ensure a smooth flow of wastewater. On the other hand, grease traps filter fats, oils, and greases from the wastewater being drained in the sink. Most homeowners install both garbage disposal units and grease traps together to ensure that they will not have any problem with draining their wastewater in the kitchen. This is considered to be a really efficient way of disposing wastewater from your home.

How is a grease trap in Mobile cleaned?

A grease trap is usually cleaned using pumps. It is highly advisable to hire a professional company for the task. They will pump and suck away the brown grease from the grease trap using grease pumping trucks. After all the brown grease has been pumped, it will then be dumped in landfill sites. However, there are modern wastewater facilities that use new technologies and methodologies to be able to recycle brown grease. Still, most of the collected grease still lands on landfills and adds significantly to pollution.
