The FOGHog grease trap from Bio-Microbics is a simple, lightweight, durable, noncorrosive and efficient indoor device that’s used to remove fats, oils and grease from high-BOD wastewater. It can be installed under a sink for single-point use or anywhere in the piping schematic prior to an onsite wastewater treatment system or sewer (ideally closer to the sink drain so FOG doesn’t solidify in the pipe). Several options are available sized by flow from 20 to 100 gpm to help detain 95 percent of fats, oils and greases at the source of contamination. Grease traps should be properly cleaned, with disposal of FOG by a licensed hauler at least every three months, while clean-out frequency will vary. 800/753-3278;
