Food Grease Trappers has been working with a new facility that is having a major issue with odor from two large interceptors. The companies Rep gave the following reply…
Attached to this email is some information relating to **** grease interceptors in general. I would like to re-iterate that the reason there is odor coming from the interceptor is because of food particles decaying inside the interceptor. The reason for the vent is not to allow the odor to escape unnoticed. The vent is there in order to maintain equilibrium inside the interceptor. Also, if your customer recently had the interceptor cleaned, why didn’t the guy who did the cleaning replace the gasket? That is normally part of that job as the gasket generally becomes wet (and thus useless) while the interceptor is being cleaned. Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions. Thank you!

The gaskets for these interceptors cost $90.00 each, and require at least 30 to 45 minutes labor to install. Consider this when purchasing a grease trap! Every time you have the trap serviced you will need to spend an additional $150 minimum on top of the normal service fee! ALWAYS talk to your service vendor about any grease trap/interceptor purchase. Engineers and plumbers do not have to service them after the sale!
