Grease Interceptor and Grease Trap Pumping Brandon, FL
We offer one-time and regularly scheduled grease interceptor pump outs
Grease interceptors or “grease traps” are a treatment device installed in the plumbing line within a commercial food services business to control the flow of wastewater to allow fats, oils and grease to float to the top and the solids to settle to the bottom. This simple system is very effective at removing FOG (fats, oils and grease) before they can reach the city sewer system.

How Often Do You Need Grease Trap Pumping?
In Hillsborough County, Florida food service establishments and facilities with grease traps and grease interceptors are required to be pumped out at least once every 90 days. Depending on how large your system is and how efficient it is, grease trap pumping intervals can be stretched out but they do require individual approval from a county inspector.
Fixtures Required To Be Connected To Grease Traps Are:
- Sinks used for washing pots, pans, dishes, cutlery and kitchen utensils, including pre-rinse sinks.
- Self-cleaning exhaust hoods installed over commercial cooking equipment.
- Commercial cooking equipment, such as tilt kettles, designed to discharge to a sewer or drain.
- Any fixtures that discharge wastewater that contains FOG (fats, oils or grease).
As an operator of a food services operation, it is your responsibility to pump out your grease interceptor when the oil and grease inside is in excess of the lesser of six inches or 25% of the wetted height of the grease interceptor.
A record of all grease interceptor inspection and maintenance activities must be kept at your facility and be available for on site inspection by a health officer.
The size of your establishment, the size of your grease interceptor and the amount of FOG contaminated waste water you send down the drain will determine the frequency of your required pump outs. Waiting too long could result in clogs, foul odors, fines and other maintenance issues, so it’s recommended that busy facilities have their grease interceptors pumped out and rinsed every 2-3 months. Your specific situation may vary.
