Hear it from a customer

Posted August 12, 2015 in Articles

I am not going to lie. I really never thought about the grease and oils would do to the drainage system under my house. I knew they were bad in excess to my own body, but a house and drains are much stronger than me. Right?

Wrong. After meeting with the field team at Renewable Water Resources, I have learned just how costly it can be to dump Fats, Oils and Grease (FOG) down the drain. Not just to me, but to the system in general. I have gone from lax to hyper vigilant. I pour every drop of oil from the pan into a special FOG container (that I got from ReWa) once it cools. I then wipe the pan with a paper towel to sop up any residue.  That then goes straight into the garbage. No harm to the system.

However, it is more than just the leftover from the morning Boyanoski bacon bonanza that causes problems. FOG can come from “healthy” foods too including salad. Yes, salad. That dressing is just as dangerous as the grease. So, I make sure to wipe those down as well.
