Under City Ordinance, food service/processing establishment (FSE/FPE) requiring the use of a grease interceptor will need to perform an annual inspection on the interceptor. A licensed plumber or other qualified professional approved by SAWS must perform the annual inspection. The written report must include photographs of all inlet and outlet fittings, internal baffles, walls, floor and all other internal structures.

Per Chapter 34 Article 5 Division 4 Sec 34-527(d)

(d) Interceptor inspection. Not less frequently than once per calendar year, each FSE and FPE shall cause a licensed plumber or other qualified professional approved by SA WS to inspect each interceptor. After evacuation of the Interceptor, the licensed plumber or other qualified professional approved by SAWS shall make a visual observation of and shall photograph all inlet and outlet fittings, internal baffles, walls, floor and all other internal structures. Each FSE and FPE shall cause the licensed plumber or other qualified professional approved by SAWS conducting the inspection to provide a written report of the inspection to the FSE or FPE that includes the photographs that are required by this section and that provides the name, address and telephone number of the licensed plumber or other qualified professional approved by SAWS conducting the Inspection, the date of the inspection, and a description of any defects observed during the inspection. All defects shall be corrected by each FSE or FPE within ninety (90) days of each inspection.
