Grease Trap and UCO – Drain Services & Repairs

Drain Services & Repairs

Drains and sewers are used to convey wastewater from its source to a wastewater treatment system. A drain is the piping that connects a plumbing fixture such as a sink, washbasin, toilet, grease trap, etc., to the main building drain. A building drain collects all drains in a building and is connected to a sewer. The sewer collects building drains and is connected to a wastewater treatment facility. Drains are inside buildings and sewers are outside. Building codes require the installation of grease traps wherever fats, oils and greases (FOG) could be discharged into the sewer system. Sewer-use bylaws limit the amount of FOG and suspended solids that are permitted to be discharged to the sewer system.

Drains and sewers are susceptible to blockages from many causes. Blockages can:

  • cause serious damages from flooding
  • pose serious health risk to those affected
  • cause loss of businesses due to operational down-time

As an owner/operator of drains and sewers, you are responsible for proper use and maintenance. You are also liable for loss and damages caused by blockages, both to your own property and the property of others that are affected. Protect your assets and guard against liabilities.
