Using licensed technicians equipped with atmosphere monitoring equipment, perform a confined space entry of the trap.


Thoroughly power wash the walls of the trap to improve the application and adhesion of new sealant and concrete.


Fill in all holes and cracks with hydraulic cement.


To prevent erosion, layer the walls and floor with two 3/8″ layers of a proprietary pH-resistant sealant mixture.

What Causes Grease Trap Deterioration?

Your grease trap is home to tons of tiny microorganisms. These microscopic bacteria digest the grease and food waste that ends up in your trap and breed. The living bacteria cause the contents of the trap to turn acidic over time, lowering the pH. The acid can erode the concrete and metal that comprise the grease trap. 

The longer you wait in between cleanings, the more acidic the waste becomes! 

Initially, the concrete will erode, gradually exposing the rebar supporting it. As this happens, a grid-like pattern will appear on the sides of the trap. After a time, the concrete will get eaten away to the point that the rebar is exposed to the acid. At this point, the structural integrity of the walls and floors of the grease trap is compromised. 

If left untreated, a wall can collapse, causing the whole trap to cave in. If you don’t carefully monitor and maintain your grease trap, a sinkhole might suddenly develop in your parking lot or drive-thru where the trap is located.
