Also known as a grease interceptor, the grease trap is made of metal or concrete and is either installed under the kitchen sink or buried outside. It differs in size based on what its needed capacities are.
A grease trap's job is to capture the FOGs—fats, oils, and grease—as they comes down the kitchen drain. It does this by slowing down the water flow, making the grease float to the top, with solids at the bottom, and allowing the water to flow through.
A grease trap must be cleaned out regularly, typically every couple of months, or it can cause backups, overflows, and contamination. The amount of grease flow will determine the frequency of grease trap cleanings.
