Some Septic System Advice For The Holiday Party Season

Down to Earth Construction Services wish you Happy Christmas Eve! We know that it is almost Christmas any many people have Christmas parties planned with their friends and family and people visiting from out of town. Of course nobody wants to be concerned about their septic systems over the holidays but it’s a good idea to be conscious of your water usage, especially when you have large parties or people staying at your home for an extended period of time. For example when you have a septic system and are not on town sewer it is recommended to spread laundry loads out over a week rather than do multiple loads on one day which can overload your system. In the same vein try to spread out bath and showers, especially if you have a lot of visitors. We know one family who have large parties but only have a small home rent an outdoor toilet for their events to avoid overloading their home’s septic system. If your septic system is designed and sized for a small family but the number of people using it multiplies over the holidays just try to be aware of your water usage to prevent problems occurring.
