WASTEWATER COLLECTIONS SYSTEMS HOUSEHOLD GREASE “ FROM THE PAN TO THE CAN ” HELP US HELP YOU
FOG from Restaurants and Residential homes are common causes of sewer backups. What is Household Grease? Household Grease is more commonly referred to as Fats Oils & Grease or F.O.G.
FOG gets into the plumbing drain system and builds up inside our pipes. Eventually, the buildup blocks the entire pipe, causing sewage backups and overflows. FOG from left over food, meat fat, cooking oil, baking ingredients, heavy sauces, and dairy products are released by kitchens without grease interceptors or other grease control measures.
