Commercial FOG management refers to the fat, oil and grease waste in restaurants, pubs, cafes and any newly installed or refurbished kitchen in schools, offices, factories and any other similar establishment. It is a beneficial rule that helps to protect the local Hampshire environment from harmful waste. Official guidelines highlight the necessity of effective measures such as grease trap installation and regular fat removal to prevent blockages in the drainage system. Unchecked FOG is directly responsible for causing expensive drainage repairs that could severely disrupt your business. No1PHD offers a range of cost-effective, commercial FOG management services for every type of business in Southampton. Contact us for a free quote.
Commercial properties usually produce high quantities of discarded fat and oil. Unless FOG is managed successfully on a regular basis, it can cause a serious drainage blockage in a very short time. Oil and grease has a great deal of buoyancy and is difficult to rinse away. It is sticky and malleable and anchors itself to the interior of your drainage system where it hardens. As the layers increase, it restricts the water flow. Commercial kitchens are regularly inspected by the HSE and if slow moving waste water or a foul smell is observed in the drain, you could face a large fine and have your premises closed. Experienced drainage engineers at No1PHD offer affordable, effective FOG management including:

The first line of defence against fat for any commercial establishment in Southampton is the installation of a grease trap. Hydromechanical grease interceptors have a relatively short life span of approximately eight years, an indication in itself of the damaging effects of FOG. Grease traps are inexpensive to purchase and install. There are many types available to enable you to choose the perfect model for your business:
A manual grease trap fits beneath your sink and is a simple, but effective method of intercepting small quantities of FOG. Manual removal and cleaning is usually required every four weeks.
An automatic grease trap is generally larger than the manual version. Complete with a timer, it can be programmed to automatically separate the fat and the waste water. Authorised fat collection is quick and easy.
An extra large grease trap is buried in the ground, keeping your premises free of stored, rancid fat that must be collected every few weeks. It prevents large volumes of FOG entering the drainage system and usually includes automated features.

After noticing that the house was unusually cold, we found that the heating wasn’t coming on and that our hot water had also failed. We called the team at No 1 PHD who dispatched an engineer to investigate. After discovering that the culprit was a faulty boiler part, they ordered in a new part and got it fitted as quickly as possible. The guys were great, and we couldn’t be happier.
For days, we’ve noticed a foul smell coming from outside and a gurgling sound coming from one of the drains. Whenever it would rain, the area around it would flood slightly and take ages to drain. We tried buying drain unblockers, but none seemed effective. Eventually, we turned to No 1 PHD and were left wondering why we didn’t do this sooner.
