If you have ever experienced a sewer backup, you know it can be a headache—for you and the community. Grease buildup is responsible for nearly 50% of overflowing sewer lines. In Knoxville, all food service establishments need to have grease control equipment installed; the grease cannot be released into the sewer system. Do you need to replace or maintain your grease trap? Contact your local Knoxville grease trap installation and maintenance technicians at Pipe Wrench Plumbing, Heating & Cooling, Inc.

Where should the grease trap be installed?
Grease traps are either installed near a particular fixture (such as the sink) or outside your property (to cater to the whole kitchen).
Grease traps keep grease, oil, waxy substances, and other residue out of the sewer system. Excessive amounts of greasy substances can solidify in pipes and become as hard as concrete. This can lead to clogs that can only be removed by a professional plumber.
A clean, well-maintained grease trap will keep your sewer lines flowing smoothly.
What are signs it’s time for cleaning?
Is wastewater starting to back up from your drains? The grease traps may be failing to intercept oil and grease, leading them to clog in your pipes. This is often the result of a filled grease trap that needs cleaning.
In-ground grease traps serving commercial kitchens can hold over 500 gallons of grease and oil. If you need to clean your commercial grease trap, contact Pipe Wrench Plumbing, Heating & Cooling, Inc. We specialize in clearing out large-scale traps using a Jet cleaner.
How often should you clean your grease trap? We recommend clearing out large traps every three months.
It may be time to replace your grease trap if your drains are starting to back up due to a damaged trap that is failing to direct grease from your sewer line.
