Don’t let a full grease trap slow your kitchen down! Whether you have a big family and do a lot of home cooking or need a commercial grease trap for a school, catering service, restaurant, or other food service, the expert plumbing professionals at Rooter Ranger provide reliable and professional grease trap cleaning, repair, and installation services in Phoenix, Tucson, Scottsdale, and Sun City, Arizona, Las Vegas, Nevada, and the surrounding areas.

A properly functioning grease trap is essential for any restaurant or food service establishment, and regular cleaning is crucial to maintaining its effectiveness.

How a Grease Trap Works

Grease traps, also called grease interceptors, intercept fats, oils, and grease (FOG) from entering your plumbing system and clogging pipes that are more difficult to clean. They separate the FOG from your wastewater by cooling hot, greasy water. As the water cools, the fats, oils, and grease break away from the water and glide to the top of the trap. The cleaner, cooler water flows out through the pipe to the sewer, but the FOG is prevented from leaving the trap by the baffles.

Grease interceptors can be installed inside or outside your building. The size of the trap will depend on the quantity of waste produced by your business. Inside grease traps are usually smaller and require cleaning and pumping more regularly. Grease traps located outside are usually larger and easier to service, though they do tend to clog more during the winter months.

Why Clean Your Grease Trap Regularly?

Over time, this FOG accumulates and can cause a number of problems:

  • Clogged Drains: Excessive FOG buildup restricts water flow, leading to slow drains and potential backups. This disrupts operations and creates unsanitary conditions.
  • Sewage System Issues: Grease can solidify in sewer lines, causing blockages and overflows that impact your entire property and potentially the municipal sewer system.
  • Fines & Non-Compliance: Most municipalities have regulations regarding having a grease trap and cleaning it on a regular basis. Failure to comply can result in fines and even business closure. The cost of cleaning out FOG from city sewers is in the millions of dollars every year, and grease traps reduce how frequently they need to be cleaned.
  • Unpleasant Odors: Grease traps that aren’t cleaned regularly can emit foul odors, impacting customer experience.

That’s why regular grease trap pumping is important to keep your drains flowing smoothly.

These guys especially Travis and his supervisor Seth are the very best. They were very relentlessly trying to help us and find a way to fix our plumbing problem. They were very compassionate with my family and our bad state we were in for over a week. Tried various Companies only to no avail. We are so grateful to these guys and the Rooter Ranger company. They were literally scratching their heads trying their hardest to figure out a way to get us to where we could use our toilets and showers again. We highly recommend this plumbing service over all others, hands down. 🙏🏿

Our Technician Carvel in Las Vegas gets a 10/10 rating by my family and I. He was very responsive and came to our home to replace our water heater. He was friendly, professional and very knowledgeable. I have used this company recently before and I am pleased with the great value and good quality of products they use. I have had great service from the time I call to request a repair till the time the technician completes it. Thank you again Carvel for providing great customer service to us and installing our new water heater.

Antonio just left who replaced our garbage disposal. We called yesterday for an emergency to unclog our disposal. Antonio showed up with such a friendly yet professional demeanor. We both were very comfortable with him. He answered all our questions and he gave us options which would work best. We decided to replace our garbage disposal. Antonio gave us a price which was reasonable with no hidden fees. He scheduled us for this morning. Antonio showed up ready to go and disposal in hand. He explained why he choose the one he got and how it works. Antonio got to work and was done in no time. Thank you Antonio! 🤙🏼

We had an emergency flooding from our toilet on a Sunday morning. We tried contacting various Plumbing companies but the majority never called back. Rooter Ranger sent out Antonio who was prompt, professional and extremely helpful along with being very informative. He discovered and corrected the problems at a Very Reasonable Cost. We are using their services for other plumbing difficulties. We Highly recommend Antonio & Rooter Rangers if you have any plumbing problems.

Alex was the perfect technician for the job! He diagnosed the issues I was having for my two bathrooms. He was able to clear my bathtub drain as well as the toilet. The supervisor also came by to check on the pipes and we got an estimate for a permanent solution to my houses drainage issue. 5 star worker and I will definitely recommend this plumbing company to friends and family!
