Think that can go down the drain? Think again.
Remember that bacon grease you poured down the drain this morning? Or last night's oily melted cheese you tossed in the sink? Sure, it seemed harmless. But fats, oils and grease (FOG) create a huge problem for your pipes. In fact, FOG combined with roots in the sewer system cause over half of our sewer backups and overflows by turning into massive, cement-like clogs. This creates one dirty, environmentally harmful mess to clean up. And who pays for it? You do! Through increased sewer rates and costly repairs.
What should you do? It's easy.
