Grease interceptors that are not properly maintained can cause millions of dollars in plumbing bills and fines, and can result in loss of business.

In 2010, the Toronto Public Health inspected 4213 restaurants in Toronto, 1474 did not have proper grease traps
Grease from restaurants is estimated to account for 70% of sewer blockages according to the US Environmental Protection Agency.
An average restaurant produces 150 to 250 lbs of grease per week, up to 1,000 lbs per month, or 13,000 lbs per year!
Maximum fines for causing sewer blockages are $75,000 for individuals & $100,000 for corporations.
