Grease Trap Pumping

Are you pouring used cooking oil down your drain? Doing this can be harmful to your piping. This can become especially challenging for restaurants that may be disposing of too much grease on a daily basis. The best solution to this is a grease trap, which prevents greases from entering your main sewer line.

However, if your grease trap isn’t well maintained, grease can build up on it over time and it may eventually become blocked.

Your best starting point is to hire a grease trap cleaning service from an expert company. Our technicians at Transou's Plumbing & Septic can help with all of your grease trap cleaning needs.

We can remove grease waste and other food particles from your unit to ensure that they don’t develop into bigger problems like a block in your drainage system.

Plumbing FAQs

Got Plumbing Questions? We're Answering Most Common Questions Here!

A grease trap is used to trap grease, oils, and other fats that are left over after cooking. Although it's not required by law to have a grease trap installed in your home. It's only required for all commercial kitchens that produce wastewater containing fat, oils, and grease.

However, it's recommended that homeowners use one in their kitchen because it will help to keep the plumbing from clogging and reduce the risk of a backup that could cause serious damage to your home.

If you have a restaurant, or if you live in an apartment building with a large number of tenants, then you probably need one. However, if you have only one or two people living in your home, it is not necessary to have a grease trap installed.

Grease traps are designed to catch grease before it gets into your pipes and makes a mess in your kitchen or bathroom. If you have one in place, then you won't have to worry about clogs or other issues with your plumbing system as often because there will be less grease build-up over time due to its removal by the trap itself.

If you are living in an apartment building or running a restaurant where there is a high volume of wastewater flowing through the system, then it may be necessary to pump out your grease trap every few weeks to every few months depending on how often it gets used at each location respectively. However, it is ideal to have your grease trap pumped and cleaned every 1 to 3 months.

A commercial grease trap is a plumbing system that captures fats, oils and grease from the wastewater in commercial buildings. The main purpose of this system is to prevent these substances from entering into the sanitary sewer system and causing pollution and sewer blockages.

10 stars if it was possible!!! Every single person I have dealt with at Transou has been fantastic. However, special shout-out to Andrew (service tech) and Megan in customer service. Megan has been friendly, prompt, and knowledgeable. She worked hard to coordinate multiple teams since we needed risers installed and the system to be pumped. I just bought a new home, and never have owned one with a septic system before so this is all new to me. Andrew while he was out here pumping the tank went out of his way to educate me on ins and outs of the system and how it operates, upkeep recommendations and things to look out for since the system wasn't mainted properly before I purchased the home. I won't use anyone else in the future, it will always be Transou. Thanks to everyone!

I would like to share what a great experience I had with Josh H and the team from Transou plumbing today.. We had 2 prior quotes from local plumbing companies and was getting conflicting information and need someone we could trust and we got that today with Transou plumbing.. They called and sent a text before they arrived and showed up right on time.. Josh quickly diagnosed the problem and showed and explained exactly what was wrong in terms that I could understand...he took extra care to not bad mouth the other companies but instead focused on finding us the most cost effective solution to our problem..the only reason I didn't have them come first was because they were busy with other companies but got to just as soon as they could...For all our future plumbing needs not only will they be our first call, they will be our only call.
