EnviroZyme® Provides Controlled Grease Treatment for Traps

What Are Grease Traps? A grease trap is a plumbing device designed to intercept most greases and solids before they enter a wastewater disposal system. The traps reduce the amount of fats, oils, and greases (FOGs) that enter sewers. How Do They Work? The grease trap tank acts as a reservoir holding the wastewater and food solids that enter the trap. As the wastewater cools, the fat, oil, and grease (FOG) harden and the food solids settle. The FOG, being lighter than water, floats to the top of the grease trap.

Wastewater and the Septic System

What is a septic tank? For the 20% of American households and institutions that are not hooked up to a sewer system, everything that goes down any of the drains (toilets, showers, sinks, laundry machines) travels first to the septic tank. The septic tank is a large-volume, watertight tank that provides initial treatment of wastewater by intercepting solids and settleable organic matter before disposal of the wastewater (effluent) to the drainfield.
