Grease Tank Pumping

Grease interceptor and grease traps are terms that are generally used interchangably, however grease interceptors technically reference the larger outside one to three or more chamber type interceptors with manhole lids holding 350 gallons or more. Grease traps, on the other hand reference the smaller type which is usually found underneath or near the three compartment sinks of the kitchen area.

Grease traps and interceptors were designed to prevent the high volume of fats, oils and grease at commercial eating establishments from clogging up main sewer lines that flow to waste water treatment facilities. The more volume of fats, oils and grease that enter the treatment plants, the costlier it is for your water district to treat, process and make available reusable, quality drinking water.

The grease trap slows the flow of the grease and "traps" it inside this contraption to be later pumped out and removed by a licensed liquid waste hauler with the use of a vacuum or pump truck. Each municipality dictates the frequency the grease trap needs to be cleaned or pumped out. The frequency can range from biweekly, monthly or even quarterly. Much of this depends on the volume of the establishment or based on an inspection from when the last pump out occurred to when a certain amount of grease enters the grease trap and becomes a threat of entering the main lines of the city waste water infrastructure.

Lentz Septic Tank Servie ensure that North Carolina area food service facilities, restaurants and large commercial and institutional kitchens stay in compliance with state, municipal, and local government requirements and FOG Inspections. We make sure that fats, oils and grease do not interfere with proper drainage and treatment of municipal wastewater.

PRESSURE JETTING

High Pressure Jetting
Sometimes we come across a clog that can’t be cleaned by traditional methods. There may be an instance where your clog resides in a pipe that runs under your home or under your patio. Instead of breaking into the concrete and creating a mess we use a method called “High Pressure Jetting.”

High pressure jetting is the process of sending a hose the size of a garden hose into your drain pipe until it reaches the clog. Once we reach the clog with the hose we use exteremly high pressured water to flush out the clog. Using this method is much cleaner, easier and cheaper for you.

High Pressure Jetting

Lentz Septic has been clearing Mooresville and Statesville area sewer and drain lines since 1958 - we are the sewer and drain cleaning experts! When normal drain cleaning methods fail, Lentz technicians can use high pressure water jetting to blast through grease, sludge, sediment, and debris, opening up your pipes and clearing your drain lines. Keep your restaurant, church kitchen, commercial, industrial or institutional operation open for business.

Water Jetting or Blasting Grease in the Line
Fats, Oils and Grease (FOG) cool and accumulate on the side walls of sewer pipes restricting flow and causing blockages that can result in overflowing manholes, basement backups and Sanitary Sewer Overflows (SSOs) that can discharge into storm drains, creeks and rivers. If normal drain cleaning methods do not clear the sewer line, we use the latest water jetting technology to send powerful “jets” of water through your pipes to cut through grease, sludge, sand, sediment and debris and clear the toughest blockage. Call us today at 704-876-1834 or 704-664-6916.
