It’s a fact that the majority of grease traps installed in shopping centres, restaurants and commercial buildings are manufactured from concrete. They have an estimated operating life of 10 years. This is dependent on the operational environment and the level of maintenance undertaken over the span of its life.
Grease traps operate in a harsh environment of decaying biomass generated from liquid waste produced by food solids, food grease, food fats, cooking oil and general grease.
As a concrete grease trap age, they begin to deteriorate in two main areas. The original concrete baffles corrode and frequently fall apart plus the surface starts to corrode and become severely pitted, requiring it be replaced. (see Gold Coast City Council Regulations on Trade Waste)
Replacement is not only extremely expensive it was also extremely disruptive to the everyday operation of businesses such as restaurants, bakeries and fast food shops.
This has changed with the advent of grease trap relining technology that allows the trained technicians at Whywait Plumbing to completely rehabilitate your existing trap while business continues to function and operate as normal with minimal disruption.
Relining eliminates all of the problems associated with excavation in and around an existing building with all work undertaken by fully trained Whywait Plumbing technicians. Rehabilitation of a grease trap can range from minor concrete repairs or baffle replacement right through to complete relining for a fraction of the cost of a full replacement.
