Klargester Grease Traps are manufactured in Glass Fibre Reinforced Polyester (GRP). The finished products are light in weight, easy to transport and install. GRP is extremely robust, but can be susceptible to damage by sharp objects and from point loads. Care should be taken to avoid contact with sharp objects and point loads and the unit should be uniformly supported during transportation and installation.
Because of their lightweight and large volume, there is a risk of buoyancy and movement during installation. The unit should be carefully strutted in position and ballasted with water in order to minimise these risks. On sites where the excavation is likely to be water logged the excavation must be kept free of water using suitable pumping equipment.
Klargester will accept no liability for damage incurred through failure to comply with this procedure.

It is not recommended that kitchen waste disposal units are used because they generate excess solid waste, which will be detrimental to grease trap performance. Solid kitchen waste should be disposed of by other means.
Weekly inspection is recommended as a minimum and regular emptying of both grease and solids must be carried out to maintain performance. Failure to empty a unit will result in problems for any downstream treatment systems.
