Here are some tips for cleaning your grease trap:
1. Clear any obstructions from the trap’s drain. This includes tree branches, insulation, and other debris.
2. Pour approximately one gallon of hot water into the trap and turn on the faucet until the water begins to boil. Use a plunger to push the debris and waste down into the water below. Be sure to move anything that may block the drain or cause flooding.
3. Pour a pot of cold water over the top of the trap, filling it halfway. Turn off the faucet and wait five minutes. Drain all of the water from the pot using a hose or drain cleaner. Repeat this process two more times, pouring cold water over the top of the trap each time until all of the water has been removed.
4. Put on rubber gloves and slowly remove the top section of the trap by slowly unscrewing it from its mountings. Gently pour a container of ammonia down into the trap and allow the ammonia to fill up the entire space.
