Waste trap grease pumps for commercial applications can be used for a wide variety of applications involving pumping grease from the source to a suitable treatment area. One such pump for pumping waste trap grease is the Mud Sucker Diaphragm pump which is used in shopping centers, hospitals, school cafeterias, restaurants, prisons and other government institutions where pumping grease for treatment is required.

For example, an engineer in Miami, Florida was tasked with designing a pump system for a large mixed use shopping center with restaurants and other attractions that involve pumping from grease pits to a collection area. The challenge was configuring the piping through the multi-level shopping center which was under construction and meeting city bylaws for proper waste trap grease treatment. The engineering firm and the contractor contacted Wastecorp to inquire about the Mud Sucker Diaphragm Pump’s track record in grease trap waste pumping.

As the weather improves for commercial grouting jobs it gives us an opportunity to address contractor concerns. One of the comments we heard from contractors who work with grouting jobs before the Sludge Sucker grout pump was made available, is that there was a lack of dependable, compact grout pumps that could easily be moved to job sites with tight spaces. Wastecorp went to work and designed/engineered the Sludge Sucker Professional Grout Pump. Now, this has not been featured on Shark Tank (yet) but we have been thinking about it due to its positive response from construction professionals.  Since then, the Sludge Sucker has become a staple for commercial contractors and public works crews to grout door frames, pilings, slab jacking, void filling, mud jacking and many other commercial grouting applications.
