          Your best bet is to call your local building department and ask to speak with the plumbing inspector, he will be more than happy to tell you the right way to plumb in your sinks.

            140 ft. long, 4 in pipe , Why so long of a run & why 4 inch pipe?

              Because the grease trap is located 140 ft away from the sink (closer to the other fixtures connected to it). I choose a 4 inches pipes to give more chance to drain in case of grease accumulation in winter. Do you have another solution?

                I am sure that the grease will set up even in the summer. You need to see about a closer trap. They make compact models that can go right under or beside the sink. For instance:

                Zurn GT2700-4 - 8# Grease Trap, 4gpm

                They have other sizes based on your needs.

                  Install a small boiler and run some steam tracing and insulate the line to keep the grease flowing.
