Grease Interceptor Installation

Property owners in Columbia, South Carolina and surrounding areas depend upon Sharpe’s Septic and Well for the best grease interceptor installation services available.

A grease interceptor or grease trap helps reduce the amount of animal fats and vegetable oils that make their way into the sewer waste system. Both residential and commercial property owners who want to maintain the efficiency of their septic system need to have a grease interceptor installed.


Home and commercial property owners alike create kitchen wastewater when they use their kitchen sink for cooking or washing dishes. This wastewater can contain particles of food, fats and oils. This grease can clog drains and reduce the efficacy of your system. You can keep grease out of pipes and septic systems and avoid pipe blockage or other issues with a grease interceptor.

With a grease interceptor, oils in kitchen wastewater are caught in the device before making their way to the septic system. This makes it easier for wastewater to flow as intended to ensure optimal septic system operations. Grease solidifies at certain temperatures and septic and sewage systems are not designed to handle it. Without a grease interceptor, a property owner may frequently experience blockages and backups. These blockages may lead to health risks for the property owners, family members, employees or members of the public near the area of the backup. Grease traps or grease interceptors are typically required of businesses that prepare food items in large quantities on a regular basis, such as restaurants and hotels, but they can also be beneficial for malls and hospitals.

Our courteous and experienced staff at Sharpe’s Septic and Well can guide you to the best grease interceptor options for your purposes and property specifications. Contact us today to find out which grease interceptor will work best for your commercial or residential property.


After installing a grease interceptor, the layer of grease that collects inside it needs to be regularly removed. Traditional concrete traps need to be pumped more often than newer, highly efficient grease interceptors. However, any grease interceptor you choose for your property needs to be cleaned out quarterly, or more frequently as needed. Rely on the qualified and experienced professionals at Sharpe’s Septic and Well to clean out your grease interceptor and answer any questions you may have about the maintenance process.
