Grease Trap Services in Phoenix from Cool Touch
Grease traps are an important part of your Phoenix home’s drainage system. They ensure that when you do the dishes or rinse off pots and pans after cooking that cooking grease, especially hot grease that can still run down the drain, does not solidify in the pipes and create a clog.
These systems are highly recommended for all kitchens in homes that have frequent clogging issues or sewer line concerns. If you are interested in learning more about grease trap installation services, call the Phoenix plumbers at Cool Touch. Contact Cool Touch today to learn more about grease traps in Phoenix.
How a Phoenix Grease Trap Works
A grease trap is installed in your kitchens drain, just before it exits your fixture for good and goes into the larger drainage system for your Phoenix home. This is done to ensure as much grease is removed from drainage water as possible before it is flushed. If it is not removed, that grease can solidify further down the line as it cools and create a thick plaque on the walls of your pipes. Over time the opening will narrow and it will take very little food or paper products to create a full clog in your drains, or worse, in your main sewer line.
The grease trap itself is very simple in operation, removing grease from water before it reaches your drains. It is accessible for easy emptying into a garbage can and can be cleaned without worrying about more grease entering your drains.
Phoenix Grease Trap Maintenance and Repair
Once you have a grease trap installed, it should be inspected like any part of your plumbing system at least once a year. During this process, a Phoenix plumber will check the grease trap and surrounding drain pipe to make sure the system is working properly and that there is not excess build up in the pipe, either before or after the grease trap.
If a problem does occur and your grease trap gets clogged or your drain pipes beyond the grease trap get clogged, we can visit your home and perform a thorough inspection to find the problem and fix it fast. This will ensure you never need to worry about the grease becoming an issue in the future.
