Watling Hope EBI issue warning to restaurateurs looking to purchase grease traps online


Watling Hope EBI one of the UK’s leading providers of wastewater products and services to the restaurant industry have urged caution to restaurateurs looking to purchase grease traps online.The company believes there is not enough guidance on-line for sizing a grease trap or removal system and it could lead to restaurateurs buying twice.

Edward Palin, Managing Director at Watling Hope EBI comments: “we have seen cases where restaurateurs have purchased a system based upon the available space or simply the cheapest option – they have then found it has not been sufficient and they have then had to buy another system, we want to help them prevent this. We actually took the decision to stop selling on-line some years ago for this exact reason.”

Working with many of the UK's leading restaurant groups Watling Hope EBI operate from 7 regional depots across the UK and they provide advice and surveys free of charge.

If you have you been contacted by your water company citing section 111 of the Water Industry Act 1991 relating to grease in drainage Watling Hope EBI can help.
