Today's most common grease traps include a baffle wall, which is a barrier that regulates the flow of water into the trap, allowing a certain amount of water to enter the system while keeping a certain amount of relatively clean water at the bottom of the system. A baffle wall not only separates the water from the oil, fatty buildup, grease, and other unwanted liquid waste, but it also allows your system to send only the clean water into the sanitary waste system. A proper baffle wall system should increase settling time and reduce Total Suspended Solids (TSS). 

The lifespan of a septic tank drain field can be severely affected by a damaged or missing baffle wall. If you are experiencing drainage problems, a faulty or missing baffle wall could be to blame. The experts at Stillwater Septic Sewer & Drain Cleaner will utilize state of the art equipment and techniques to inspect your septic system and ascertain whether there is an issue with your baffle wall. If the need is present, we will repair or replace your baffle wall to ensure that your system is properly separating solids from your drain and working just like new!
