Much like grease traps, oil sand separators (sumps) are inline devices used to separate oils and other particulates from flowing into the municipal sewer system. These oils and particulates such as sand, trash, and dirt, can clog and damage the city infrastructure causing problems for an entire neighborhood. Common places that must have and maintain sumps are mechanic's garages, car washes, and most industrial processes.
Regular sump maintenance is important. Before your sump can be pumped a test for heavy metal levels is required. This testing can take up to 10 days so plan ahead! Don't wait till it's backing up.
