Don't FOG Up Your Plumbing | Billy the Sunshine Plumber

Has fat, oil, or grease clogged your plumbing? Billy the Sunshine Plumber can help.

You had a bunch of people over to celebrate the long Labor Day weekend. And, after a weekend of barbecuing and other assorted activities, you woke this morning to find your kitchen sink was clogged.

Sounds as if you might have a problem with FOG. FOG is short for fats, oils, and grease. The combination is lethal for your plumbing.

Miami-Dade County explains: “Whenever we eat food at home, eat a restaurant or even pass by a drive-through, someone has to cook and clean the dirty pots and dishes that remain.

The best, harmless approach to cleaning is to wipe the cooking equipment of the fats, oils and grease before washing it. Foods that float in the dish water should not go down the drain, and foods that fall to the bottom of the sink when washing belong in the trash, too. When that doesn’t happen, the fats, oils and grease (FOG) get rinsed right down the drain and end up in our sewers, which are not designed to accept these substances.

FOG sticks to the sides of the sewer pipes and harden inside. They block wastewater flow and clog sewer pipes, which can cause sewers to overflow onto our streets and into our homes and businesses — costing us all a lot of money.”

While Miami-Dade is mainly concerned about its sewers, FOG has the same effect on your home plumbing. What doesn’t reach the municipal or county sewer system sits in your pipes and creates clogs that, oftentimes, requires the help of a professional to clear away.

When you do need a reliable plumber to get your pipes flowing again, call the trusted plumbers at Billy the Sunshine Plumber.
