I look forward to your response.

Re: what I can use to dislodge fat trap?

Hi Tolulope,

I am trying to help but can I please have some more information? What do you mean by dislodge? Where have you searched for answers already? Perhaps you could post some photos to show what the problem looks like. 

I put into Google "how to dislodge a fat trap?" It sent me to this page with the title: How to Properly Clean a Grease Trap https://www.mrrooter.com/oneida/about-us/blog/2015/july/how-to-properly-clean-a-grease-trap/

Is that the kind of information you were after?

Hi Elisabeth,

Thank you.

Part of what we do is sewage evacuation and delivery to accredited sewage treatment plant.

We were approached by an organisation to clear out their waste and it also involves fat trap but we are looking for ways to properly clear it with our truck so as to deliver it to the sewage plant. 

So i'm thinking what are the ways to properly manage it as a sanitation company.

Regards.

The problem usually is that people wait with maintenance until it is nearly completely blocked with solid fat and then it becomes very difficult to clean. Once you are facing such a fatberg, all you can do is basically try to melt it with hot water or another source of heat.
