Why grease traps need cleaning?
One common cause of a commercial septic system failure is the lack of pumping of grease traps. Rooter-Man recommends that when grease is 1 foot deep in a tank that is 4 feet deep, the grease floating on top of the tank should be pumped out including the sludge at the bottom of the tank. However, many municipal health departments require a twice a year complete pumping of the grease trap even if the grease deposit has not reached the 25% level.
