Sufficient weight shall be calculated by the standard of a fifty-nine-pound cover for a twenty-four-inch-diameter opening, with the weight per square inch of the cover determined by the standard pound per square inch for the size opening. All grease traps and/or interceptors shall be installed and maintained in accordance with the manufacturers' recommendations.
