Fats, Oils and Grease (FOG) in sewer systems are quickly becoming a problem in many cities, including Louisville.

Hydro Jetting Central Kentucky | Derby City Environmental Company
In installing a grease trap, you need to consider several factors that will determine the size you need, such as the number of sinks present in the kitchen and the total flow rate that will be passing through the grease trap. You also have to make sure it is properly installed and working well.
After installation of a grease trap, the work is still not finished. The grease trap must be routinely maintained and cleaned. If you fail to do this, your grease traps will no longer be effective or function properly. The use of Hydro Jetting, also known as Line Jetting, is the process of using high pressure to clear out any clogs from FOGs that may be clogging up the line. This is best left to the professionals.
For example, if your grease traps aren’t cleaned regularly, they could be deemed inefficient. This could potentially cause your business to be open to fines.
Based on the end results of FOGs, investigators can even enforce legislation where necessary. Businesses cannot hide behind an outright denial of responsibility and if a business disregards the legislation, they will be held accountable.
