Fat trap

Post by markjass » Sun Sep 14, 2014 08:45

There has been a it online about fat deposits blocking main sewers. Has anyone ever thought of attaching one to their drainage. when I drain the sink after making sausages I place some fine mesh over the plug hole.

Here, you will not get your business license unless you install a grease trap. About $3000-$6000 to stick one in an existing building. You also have to have it emptied every quarter and are fined if you do not. Failure to put the lid on properly is a $300 fine and the food nazi is all to happy to check this.

Luckily, I'm on a septic system and installed a dual system myself. Inspector scratched his head for a minute but said I was good with it. Grease water goes one way and true sewage another.
