FOG is an acronym for Fats, Oil and Grease. It is caused by unwanted cooking oils, grease and food being poured down the kitchen drain. As the oils and grease cool in the collection system pipes it congeals, hardens and mixes with other solids creating blockages. This can cause unnecessary, expensive and messy backups in homes and businesses.
Baby wipes that don’t biodegrade quickly enough cause problems in pumps and solids grinders at the wastewater treatment plant. The toilet is not a trash can, don’t flush:
When cooking, allow unwanted oils and greases to cool and harden, wipe the pan with a paper towel and discard in the garbage can.
Only flush toilet paper and excrement. We can safely treat these wastes.
