North Texas Plumbing is offering grease trap and grease interceptor plumber services including repair, maintenance, and installation in Dallas Fort Worth, and all of North Texas.
Fats, oils, and grease, or as is abbreviated in plumbing parlance as FOG, are a property owner’s worst plumbing nightmare. They are a common byproduct of regular activities such as cooking and cleaning. The number of people living in the home and the kind of food consumed regularly dictates the amount of the harmful sludge that is dumped down the drains. The collection and buildup of FOG can lead to problems such as blocked drains, water backing up the pipes due to the said blockages, and putrid smells emanating from the drains.
One solution to ease the damage from fats, oils, and greases, and to increase the plumbing system’s lifespan is to use a grease interceptor. A grease interceptor, also known by other names such as a grease catcher or a grease separator, has the primary purpose of trapping FOG before it enters the wastewater disposal system. It traps the sludge and lets it rest for a while it separates into three layers – an upper layer made up of oils that are lighter than water, an intermediate water layer, and a bottom layer for solid waste. Some grease interceptors also have strainers that make it easy to collect and dispose of solid waste.
Grease traps are a nice-to-have for residential homes, but they are deemed essential for commercial establishments that make and serve food. Due to the sheer volume of cooking that happens in kitchens at restaurants and other commercial properties that serve food, having a grease trap on the property is non-negotiable. In many cities, local laws require the installation of a grease trap on properties owned by commercial or institutional food-service providers. For example, the Dallas City Code, Chapter 19, Sec 19-126.2 (c) specifies all grease traps must be completely emptied and cleaned by a licensed hauler. The interceptors must be cleaned as often as necessary but not less than every 90 days, or whenever 25% or more of the interceptor contains floating materials, sediment, oils, or grease. When it comes to maintaining a grease trap, businesses can rely on the services offered by professionals, such as those at North Texas Plumbing, to ensure the long-term health of their property’s plumbing.
A spokesperson for North Texas Plumbing talks about the need for grease trap maintenance services by saying, “Though there are several reasons why plumbing can eventually fail such as age, corrosive ground conditions, or the unchecked growth of roots from trees on the property which breach the pipes, the specter of dealing with FOG is different. This is because disposing of them is completely under the control of the homeowners or commercial operators. Depending on how disciplined one is while practicing the safe disposal of materials down the drain, it can make a huge difference to the longevity of a property’s plumbing system. But despite your best efforts, if you are operating a commercial food-service company, it can be a difficult task to ensure that your plumbing is in top shape all year round. You always run the risk of being closed for repairs if the problem gets out of hand if the components of your plumbing system are not cared for and looked after diligently regularly. You cannot afford to shut down your business for a single day and lose out on potential income, especially when the cost of regular inspections and maintenance is extremely affordable and negligible compared to the potential losses. When you are ready to invest towards the health of your property and the equipment within, there is only one name in the DFW metropolitan area that you can call for reliable and cost-effective grease interceptor maintenance services – North Texas Plumbing. Call us today and we will send our best technicians to your site to give your plumbing infrastructure a thorough inspection and to perform the necessary maintenance tasks.”
