1. What is FOG and why is it a problem?
FOG stands for fats, oil and grease. The term is used most commonly in conversation about plumbing and infrastructure blockages. When FOGs are put down a drain, they can stick to various elements of the drainage infrastructure, including plumbing and sewers. Over time, the FOGs build up causing blockages, wastewater backup, unpleasant smells, damage to infrastructure, and the potential to harm the environment.
