Overview

The GI-8 grease trap from Atlantic Metalworks is a carbon steel grease interceptor certified by the Plumbing and Drainage Institute and capable of handling a drain flow of 4 gallons per minute. With a holding capacity of 8 lbs, the GI-8 is a good fit for many single compartment sinks; but, since multiple factors affect sizing, your local health & plumbing requirements will be the final rule. Hydromechanical grease interceptors like the GI-8 depend on a simple yet effective baffle system that enlists agitation and Bernoulli's principle to separate fats and oils out of the water and lift them to holding area. This keeps excess grease in your waste water from washing into your drainage pipes where it can clog your system and cause expensive plumbing issues. Speaking of guarding against expense, Atlantic Metalworks grease traps fit the two rules of thrift: 1) Don't pay too much 2) Buy something solid. Constructed of heavy carbon steel, these traps are anything but flimsy and their corrosion-resistant enamel coating helps guard against rust. As to price, a smart shopper like you already knows the GI-8 is one of the most affordable grease interceptors you can buy.

Reviews

Atlantic Metalworks GI-8 - 8 lb 4 gpm Grease Trap Interceptor is rated 4.3333 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from somewhat difficult to install The inlet and outlet ports are 2" metal slip (no threads). To install this under a kitchen sink took several pvc adapters and reducers with lots of primer and glue. Took a while to install but working good so far. Havent had it long enough to open the lid and see if it is trapping grease.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from In the first week In the first week of use the unit operated great. We will not have to service the new one but once every two weeks. Which in turns drop my labor from every night and that's good for the budget.

Are the connections threaded

Asked by: Natblends
The connections are not threaded. You'll need no hub couplings to fit the trap to your plumbing.

what do I use to connect the pipe and grease trap together

Asked by: Daddy Rabbit
You would need a No-hub coupling to attach the pipes to the grease trap. They are pretty inexpensive and available at most hardware stores.
