How Much Does A Grease Trap Cost To Install?
This is a very open ended question. Of course the price of any grease trap installation comes down to the size of the grease trap and the position it which it will be install in.
Example a 5000 litre grease trap installed below a restaurant will be 10 times the cost of a 1000 litre grease trap being installed outside the back door of the local bakery. The bakery could cost for a in ground grease trap tank system between $14000-25000 and the 5000 litre system could be anywhere from $25000-60000. Each job is truly on a case by case bases.
