Grease Trap Pumping


We pump, install, clean, service, and monitor grease traps.


Each restaurant has a different size and type of grease trap. Some restaurants may have a small grease interceptor under the sink or dishwasher.  If your restaurant kitchen sink or dishwasher stops draining, there is a good chance that the grease interceptor is stopped up.  Elvis can respond quickly 24/7 to clogged sewer and grease trap pipes and pump them out immediately.  We then offer scheduled and routine grease trap pumping and cleaning so you don’t have to worry about lining up the grease trap pump out.


A grease trap is a tank or containment system that prevents your kitchen grease from reaching your local sewer system.  All of your restaurant kitchen’s floor drains, kitchen sinks, dishwashers, and food disposal systems should be plumbed into your grease trap.  As your kitchen’s wastewater enters the grease trap, the sand and dirt sinks to the botom.  The grease separates out and floats to the top.  There is a baffle wall in your grease trap that should only allow the middle layer of water to pass through to the second grease trap chamber.  If you do not regularly pump your grease trap, the grease will build up and clog your outlet port.  If your outlet is clogged with grease, the service to fix the problem could be much more timely and costly.  The best option is preventative maintenance on your grease trap.  Many people call grease traps by different terms such as grease pits, kitchen tanks, oil tanks, grease interceptors, FOG tanks, and fat tanks.  They are all essentially the same in how they operate.


Grease traps serve one purpose – to prevent Fats, Oils, and Grease (FOG) from entering into the local sewer.  The fats, oil, and grease float to the top of the grease pit (Grease trap) and they are contained inside the tank.  The sand and dirt sink to the bottom of the grease trap, and the FOG rises to the top of the grease trap.  The water sits in the middle of the grease trap, which then passes through the baffle wall or outlet T of the grease trap and into the sewer.  If you do not pump out the grease trap frequently, the FOG level will become more than the trap can handle and the grease and oil will flow out to the sewer or back up your outlet pipe.  The FOG can be very harmful to sewer pipes and restaurant drain lines.  If you do not pump out your grease trap and make sure the grease trap is cleaned out well, your restaurant will become inoperable.  Kitchen drains flow from your building to the grease trap, and these lines will become clogged if the grease trap is not cleaned out properly.


Grease Trap Pricing depends on the grease trap size and when the grease trap was pumped out last.


Many grease traps need to be scheduled on a monthly pump out, and others may be able to go longer in between servicing.  Elvis Service Company will monitor your grease trap and pump when the grease level reaches a point requiring pumpout.  If your grease trap needs to be cleaned out, we are local and reliable service ready to help.
