It is important to know your septic system limits.
With the increase in popularity of AirBnB and the like, many people are opting to rent their cottages or cabins.
Two people per bedroom is what most septic systems were designed for. Overusing your septic system can cause back-ups, septic system failure and lake pollution. Not to mention unhappy renters!
The CHA has posters available to print (free), to inform renters about proper use of a septic system. We also have printables you can download for free for both home and cottage.
Boosting your septic bacteria with EcoEthic Septic Treatment will help to combat issues too! So remember to add a treatment prior to renters arriving.
