Testimonial

Very professional and immediate attention. Had a problem with the city and theses guys helped me immediately to fix the waste cooking oil disposal issue we are having. Grease trap overflowed city came and I found GMS online so I called. They had a clean up crew at my place working an hours which was very impressive. After cleaning up they pumped out the grease trap and cleaned my drains. Can’t say that the price was cheap but they were the lowest I found.

We had an emergency and my whole facility was down. I called these guys and right away they were able to assist. Within an hour their team was able to come pump out the grease trap so that the plumber can access and change the sump pump. Highly recommended especially if you are in a bind because they are fast and reasonably priced. Great Value for my money.

How does a grease trap work?

Grease traps are an essential component of commercial kitchens. It works as an interceptor to separate FOGS from the wastewater flow and store them inside its sludge tank.

Grease is 10 to 15 percent less dense than FOGS, therefore when cooled down, they float on top of the water. Grease traps work based on this simple principle. When wastewater enters the trap, the baffling structure of the device slows them down, allowing them some time to cool down.

When cooled down, FOG separates themselves from the water and food sludge and stays on top of the interceptor, and gets trapped in the baffling system. Solids are heavier and they stay at the bottom. In the meantime, water escapes using an outlet pipe. Few grease traps also consist of a strainer to collect solid debris which reduces amounts of food sludge in the tank.

Like any other plumbing device, grease traps have a fixed lifespan, after which they may just die or become less effective.  When that happens, you’ll have no other option but to replace your grease trap. However, proper maintenance and grease trap cleaning may promote the life of a grease trap.
