Grease Traps and Interceptors

Anderson’s drainage supports the Bristol bustling culinary, where restaurants, cafes, and eateries thrive, the importance of maintaining cleanliness cannot be overstated. Among the many systems that ensure hygiene in commercial kitchens, grease traps and interceptors play a crucial role.

These devices prevent fats, oils, and grease (FOG) from entering our drainage system, thus averting blockages and environmental pollution. Understanding their significance and knowing who can maintain and install them is essential for every local establishment in Bristol.

Understanding Grease Traps and Interceptors?

Grease traps and interceptors are plumbing devices designed to capture FOG and solid waste before they can enter our sewage system. In kitchen environments, FOG is a common by-product of cooking processes, and when discharged into drains, it can solidify and cause blockages. Grease traps and interceptors function by slowing down the flow of wastewater, allowing FOG to separate and float to the surface, while solids settle at the bottom.

The relatively cleaner water then continues through the drainage system, proper maintenance and installation of grease traps and interceptors are essential for several reasons:

Prevention of Blockages: FOG build-up in drainage systems can lead to blockages, resulting in costly repairs and downtime for businesses. Regular maintenance ensures that traps and interceptors are functioning efficiently, reducing the risk of blockages.

Local authorities in Bristol, like in many other cities, enforce regulations regarding the installation and maintenance of grease traps and interceptors. Compliance with the local Bristol regulations is not only necessary to avoid fines but also to uphold public health and environmental standards.

Environmental Protection: Uncontrolled discharge of FOG into the sewage system can lead to environmental pollution, as it can solidify in pipes and harm aquatic ecosystems. Properly maintained traps and interceptors prevent such pollution, contributing to a cleaner environment.

Longevity of Equipment: Regular maintenance extends the lifespan of grease traps and interceptors, reducing the need for frequent replacements and saving businesses money in the long run.
