Back-ups of sewage can occur when the sewer lines are clogged with a buildup of fats, oil and greases (FOG). In order to work effectively, sewage systems need to be in proper working order from the drain to the City’s treatment plants. Normal sanitary waste can be handled without difficulty. However, FOG waste builds up on sewer walls causing blockages in the sewer system. For this reason FOG should not be disposed of down the drain.
Commercial establishments are regulated through municipal and Ministry of environmental Canada by-laws regarding proper disposal into the sanitary or storm sewers.
Grease Trap Maintenance
The grease trap is the container found under the sink. Its primary role is to separate oil, grease and solids from the flow of liquid entering the sanitary sewer line.
The grease trap must be cleaned on a regular schedule to prevent odors (Every month), pump-outs and spill-over into the sanitary sewer.
Never use chemical solvents, hot water, or caustic or emulsfying solutions to clean out the grease trap. Grease trap should always be maintained and cleaned by a professional and licensed company.
Why You Should Clean the Grease Trap
Grease traps are used for filtering out the materials like oils and fats from the kitchens. They do not allow waste to enter the waste water treatment system or the common sewage system.
These traps have to be cleaned periodically by using grease trap cleaning companies. If they are not cleaned regularly, the grease, oil and fat (etc), can enter and clog the d drainage system. This will or can cause overflowing of manholes, cause a sewage spill, environmental problems, property damage and various other health hazards, such as dangerous bacteria contamination, (etc).
