Don’t FOG Clog Your Drains

Fats-Oils-Grease FOG pipesHoliday time is food time! We all bake, we cook. While this food is tasty it also contains fat, oil and grease (FOG) – and sometimes this FOG can end up in your drain and pipe systems.

Food with FOG include meats, cheese, gravy, eggs, butter and others. The grease, fat and oil that end up in your drain will harden and then stick to the inside of the pipes which then blocks wastewater flogs. It could cause backups and overflows.

Here are some tips to avoid this sticky, greasy mess from ending up in your pipe system:

  • Wipe fat, oil and grease from pots, pans and tableware using a disposable paper towel before washing the items.
  • Pour leftover liquid grease into an empty can. When it hardened, throw away the can
  • Consider composting instead of throwing away food or using the garbage disposal.
