Are you thinking about building a summer cabin? Are you already planning out where everything will go? When planning a summer cabin, it's easy to overlook what'll happen with the waste water. Even though septic systems aren't the nicest things to think about, they certainly make your life more comfortable. Here are some things to consider when planning your new summer vacation spot:
Tank placement: Although you might think that your cabin will look best on a particular rocky outcrop, that may not be the best place for any septic systems that you intend to use.
When it comes to your sewer and its cesspool, you probably don't give it much thought, that is, of course, until something goes wrong with it. When something does go wrong, then you can have a big (and often smelly!) disaster on your hands, such as a cesspool that has leaked waste water all over your lawn. Obviously, you never want to find yourself in this situation, and the good news is that you don't have to, at least not if you are watchful over your sewer system.
If your septic tank needs to be worked on or pumped, there are a few things you need to do to keep you and your family safe.
Clear A Path
The first thing you need to do is clear a path to your septic tank for your septic worker. If you have any vehicles that are in the way, park them in another location before your septic worker arrives. If there are any other yard equipment that is in the way, put it away in another location where it will not interfere with access to your septic tank.
Most homeowners using city water and sewer systems never think about how important the process of waste management is when they flush their toilets or pull the plug for dirty dishwater to go down their drains. However, many homeowners probably do wonder why their monthly bills seem too high just for water and sewer services. One of the reasons your local sewage treatment plant charges higher rates is because of the money they may have to pay for sewer divers when sludge tanks need to be repaired.
One of the most important aspects for planning an outdoor event is sanitation. If you're hosting a multi-day event, proper hygiene will be critical to keeping everyone healthy. Here are some steps to managing good hygiene.
Good Portable Toilet Maintenance
If there's one thing that can make your event's sanitation head south quickly, it's dirty toilets. Thankfully, many septic services can offer you regular maintenance for an event with a lot of volume so that your toilets don't overflow and become unsanitary.
