St. Louis, MO Grease Trap Installation and Replacement

If you own a restaurant or similar business in the St. Louis, MO area, you know how important a good grease trap is. They prevent hot grease, fats and oils from your food cooling in the pipes, resulting in a terrible clog. Residences can usually handle the problem simply by not pouring those materials – known collectively as FOG – down their drains. That’s a lot harder in the food business, where serving hundreds and sometimes thousands of customers a day inevitably leads to FOG accumulation.

Here at Performance Plumbing, our trained team can install a new grease trap in your St. Louis and surrounding areas restaurant or similar business. We’re also available to replace grease traps which have become damaged or are otherwise unusable. Don’t trust this important component in your business’s success to anyone else!

How Do Grease Traps Work?

A grease trap is essentially a large tank placed in your central drain pipe. Drain water flows into it from your kitchens, bathrooms and floor drains, where the FOG is allowed to cool. It solidifies and will float to the top of the tank, while heavier materials drop to the bottom. The remaining drain water can then safely move on to an outlet pipe, while the hardened FOG remains behind in the trap.

It’s a safe and effective means of treating FOG, though it requires training and licensing to install properly. Our team has the skills and experience required to do the job the right way, and to ensure that the grease trap you get is the grease trap you need. All our work is guaranteed, and our stocked vans can be there quickly if the job needs to be done fast!
