A grease trap is just that. It traps the grease from your kitchen sink, dishwasher and washing machine, preventing it from entering your sullage tank. Over time this builds up into a solid mass, blocking the trap and preventing it from working properly. This results in two main problems:
- firstly your sink will not empty,
- secondly your sullage water will smell bad and your sullage pump may stop working.
An annual pump out and clean will prevent these issues.
The waste water in your sullage tank contains the sediment not captured by the grease trap. Over time this will build up and eventually block the sullage pump – often the blocked pump may need to be replaced if left too long. An annual pump out and clean removes the silt prolonging the life of your pump.
