Fats, Oils and Grease (FOG) are food by-products that can severely damage a home’s drain line system as well as the sanitary sewer system. FOG collect and eventually harden on the inside of the sewer pipes; preventing water from flowing and causing blockages.
Blockages in the sewer may cause Sanitary Sewer Overflows (SSOs), which potentially can cause raw sewage to spill into streets, lakes, streams, homes and businesses.
The best way to prevent blockages is to keep the FOG out of the drain line system. Below is a list of Best Management Practices that will help to prolong the life of your drain line system and reduce the inconvenience and cost of line blockages.
