hella good tacos
Your BM restaurant does not already have a ‘grease interceptor’ (grease trap >50 gpm & much larger storage capacity) outside of the building??? This is normally a code requirement for restaurants. … The small under sink grease trap (inside grease trap <50 gpm) will require much more frequent cleaning and the cleaning service will be dragging suction hose from the truck into your kitchen. Not good!
I think you need to check pumping/cleaning service fees and compare traps sizes to reduce trap cleaning to a minimum during the year.
I took over an existing restaurant that had been here for 26 years with no grease trap whatsoever.
Portland/ The State of Maine is behind most of the country in their implementation of Grease trap enforcement.
Apparently the EPA is cracking down on the city/state for high concentrations of grease getting into the ocean or something.
We were going to have to install a 1000 gallon in ground unit, that would have been expensive as our grey water lines tie into the entire buildings black water lines. we would have had to re plumbed a ton and ripped out a bunch of floors, etc., but the city reconsidered mandating that as most the buildings and infrastructure in this city cant support the in ground units.
I cought a break in only needing the 50 gpm and now im sweating having to buy a whole new soiled dish table on top of it…
