Every restaurant has a grease trap of some sort. It is an unpleasant contraption, but a necessity. Grease traps separate fats, oils and grease under a sink or kitchen and discharges water down into the sewer. The goal of these traps is to stop buildup and clogging that would occur downstream in city-owned pumping and lift stations. Nearly all grease traps in restaurants are required by law.
Grease traps are simple and work well up to a certain point. Grease and fats will accumulate and clog the system. This causes disastrous outcomes, horrible odors, and major maintenance requirements. Once the grease has built up most restaurateurs will hire someone to come in and physically remove the fats to dispose of it. This tired method is expensive and not environmentally friendly. The best alternative is to add specific bacteria that will break down the FOG buildup and keep the waterways clean. This degradation process is known as bioaugmentation, which highly outweigh the physical alternatives.
Most of our readers already know bioaugmentation is the process of using selected microorganisms to biologically clean up a specified contaminated area. Specific nonpathegenic microbes are developed by Aquafix to breakdown difference types of contaminants. Our GreaseZilla Liquid is a highly potent bacterial product used in grease traps, lift stations, wet wells and other waterways. With a weekly dose, the bacteria will multiply and degrade the grease carbons and fatty acids. Using GreaseZilla Liquid is more cost-effective and environmentally-friendly over physically removing it. It also keeps the municipalities happy.
