What changed in the Florida Building Code?


In March of 2009, the Florida Building Commission adopted a much stricter standard for Grease Interceptors. Under the new code, all grease interceptors (whether indoors or out) must comply with either ASME A112.14.3 or PDI G101. Both of these standards require that the grease interceptor remove at least 90% of the FOG's (fats, oils, and greases).

In addition, compliance to the required standard must be certified by a recognized and approved third-party testing agency. This code language can be found in the 2009 Florida Building Code-Plumbing Section 1003.3 (link below)


The 750 gallon minimum - 1,250 gallon maximum rule now only applies to grease interceptors that are connected to an on-site (septic) system.
