Lee’s Liquid Waste Services provides cleaning (eg. Pumping, pumpout, removal, emptying) of grease traps. Grease traps are enclosed cavities (round or rectangular in shape) usually dug into the ground and closeby to the kitchen which collect liquid waste which exits the kitchen sink. Because grease floats, it is “trapped” in between baffle walls inside the grease trap, while allowing the cleaner water to safely exit the grease trap.
All households which are not connected to council sewerage will have a grease trap installed at the premises to trap grease to prevent the grease from blocking up outlet pipes and underground dispersion areas (called “absorption/aspiration trenches or “drain fields””.
Between 1 to 3 months of waste collecting in the grease trap, the grease should be removed to ensure the grease does not accumulate to the point where the grease will automatically exit the grease trap. Lee’s Liquid Waste Services vacuums up this grease and all the contents of the grease trap with our high-power vacuum trucks. Our grease trap service also includes scraping down all walls and baffles inside your grease trap, hosing down the walls, reporting to you the customer on the condition of the grease trap and if any repairs or maintenance is required.
Because grease traps are located outside your house, you are not required to be at home while we perform your service, so you can avoid the temporary (15 minute) smell which emanates from the grease trap while the lid is open .
Lee’s Liquid Waste Services offers free reminder calls to let you know when your grease trap is due for pumpout. Please click here to add your houshold to our regular pumpout cycle, or feel free to phone us on 3206 4844. We look forward to hearing from you.
