What is a Grease Trap?
Grease traps (also known as grease interceptors or fat traps) are easy-to-fit plumbing devices designed to capture (or trap) fats, oils and grease (FOG) before they enter the main drainage system. They are an essential device and a must have for all UK commercial kitchens. Here at Grease Trap Store you’ll find everything you need when looking for a commercial kitchen grease interceptor, from our stainless steel models, to our epoxy coated grease traps, and all from as little as £129.
So why use Grease Traps? Why are they Important?
Grease is a huge problem. With more people eating out than ever before and more restaurants being built, more grease needs to be disposed of. FOG are approximately 10 to 15 per cent less dense than water, and once cooled FOG will begin to congeal and harden, this is when it becomes a significant problem. At the time when you are pouring grease into the drainage system it won’t seem like a problem, however as time passes grease will cause blockages and overflows that can potentially damage property and cause environmental contamination of local bodies of water. Grease traps trap the grease and ensure grease does not become a problem.
If you are a larger organisation or a commercial company you are required by law to have a grease trap in your premises. Although grease interceptors are relatively simple devices they serve a huge purpose and can save you a lot of time and money in the long-run. If you buy a grease trap from a reputable company like Grease Trap Store you’ll receive great quality at an affordable price.
The grease trap will pay for itself ten-fold compared to what you may pay for in plumbing costs should a serious problem arise from a grease-related blockage or overflow.
Who should have a Grease Trap Installed?
As we have mentioned previously, if you are a larger organisation or a commercial company you are required by law to have a grease trap installed. Examples of businesses and authorities that would require a great trap include:
- Hotels and guest houses.
- Public houses, bars and cafes.
- Fast food restaurants and takeaways.
- Hospitals and health care facilities.
- Food processing companies.
- Any other commercial kitchen.
Buying a grease trap for as little as £129 from a reputable company such as Grease Trap Store is a great investment, and something that will give you peace of mind.
Could you imagine receiving a call or getting a visit from your Local Authority advising your establishment has blocked the main drain supply and you are liable for the damage and repairs? Ouch, this could cripple your business! Obviously we want you to use our fantastic products and service, but if you don’t, please make sure you purchase a grease trap, we’re passionate about them and understand how important they are.

Grease Trap Guidance & Tips
- Check your grease trap on a regular basis, once a week is generally a good starting point but if you can check more we’d advise you do so. Remember to always keep a record of your cleaning operations.
- Empty your grease trap before it is full. The earlier the grease trap is emptied, the easier it is going to be to empty and clean it. Don’t let excess grease build up until the point where it is being discharged into the sewer.
- Depending on the size of the grease trap (and the size of your commercial kitchen), you may want to consider employing a trained contractor to do the work for you.
- Clean all grease traps in accordance with the manufacturer’s guidelines / recommendations.
- Once all the grease has been removed from grease trap it should be stored in a suitable container ready for collection. A licensed waste contractor will dispose of the grease in a safe and correct manner. You have a responsibility and legal duty to maintain a record of waste transfer notes.
- Check your grease trap lid is secure along with any other components to protect against accidents.
- Once the grease trap is set up and operating you should monitor activity. If there is minimal grease in the trap over a period of time, check that it is has been installed correctly. If you have other appliances, for example a dishwasher too close to the grease trap the flow of water / detergent may prevent the trap from operating effectively.
- If you experience and problems with your grease trap you should always seek advice from the grease trap manufacturer, supplier or installer.
we also supply a range of domestic fat traps starting from just £129!
