Having company gather at the homestead can be fun and crazy all at the same time. When you have a large group of family or friends over to stay, you may notice that the influx of water usage spells trouble for your septic system. To avoid septic repairs when you have company follow these septic tips for hosting:
- Large groups of people are synonymous with large amounts of food preparation and consumption. Because of the increased amount of food preparation, you may notice that your sinks start to back up. If this happens, do not use a liquid drain cleaner to clear up the clog. Instead, use a plunger to clear the drain of the clog.
- You may also notice that your toilets start to clog up as well as your sinks due to the increased number of people staying in your home. Call your septic system company if you notice that the toilets start to back up and won’t work normally, even after flushing and plunging the toilet multiple times.
- Avoid doing laundry while your company is staying with you. If one of your guests needs to do some wash, have them space out the loads over the course of the week, instead of doing multiple loads in one day.
By following these few septic tips for hosting, you can avoid septic pump repair and other problems with your septic system.
