The best way to reduce cost of servicing a grease trap is to outsource the work to a licensed, experienced service company that will thoroughly clean the grease trap regularly. This not only will help ensure that the trap works as it is supposed it, but also minimize the risk of fat, Oil, Grease (FOG) from spilling into the city waterworks or from FOG to build up and impact pipe, which could lead to costly repairs.
Restaurant manager trains employees on best practices and has the 1000 gallon trap serviced regularly.
|Restaurant Manager train staff on best practices every 2 weeks||$600|
|Grease Trap service every 3 months||$1,000|
|Grease Trap Program Annual Cost||$1,600|
Grease management best practices are not enforced and the trap is not been serviced. The pipe becomes impacted with solidified grease and the trap, non functioning, is overflowing grease in the sewer. Grease is flowing back into the restaurant and the city inspector has traced the contamination back to the restaurant.
