Fats, oils, and grease from butter, gravy, cooking oil, and sauces look harmless as liquids and many people dispose of these substances down their drains. When these liquids cool, however, they become thick and sticky, adhering to the pipes of our sewer system and potentially causing clogs, basement backups, and sewer overflows. FOG can also cause issues in the pipes of your home, producing clogs or backups.
