Pittsburgh, PA - Cooking delicious meals is a great way to enjoy and celebrate the season, but make sure you’re not giving your drains and sewers heartburn, or worse, acid reflux!
No one ever wants to deal with disgusting sewage backups, but this is especially true over the holidays. That’s why it’s incredibly important to properly dispose of fats, oils, and grease, also known as ‘FOGs’, from cooking! Defend your drains by canning grease and throwing the cooled remainder into the trash—not your sink drain!—and remembering to never flush anything but the 3 Ps: Pee, Poop, and Toilet Paper, down the toilet.
Defend Your Drains from FOGs this Thanksgiving!
