What Houzz contributors are saying:
Ideally, each spring the following areas should be checked – these inspections can be done by a qualified plumber:Check the level in your septic tank – it should not be more than two-thirds full.Identify if there are bad smells when you’re near the tank (rotten egg gas).Check for too much sludge or scum in the tank.Check if there is any green grass in the distribution area.Make sure your system is cleaned off regularly so qualified plumbers can access and service it.
7. Check watering systemsAutomatic irrigation systems need regular maintenance checks to make sure hoses aren’t leaking and spray fittings aren’t blocked. This is particularly crucial in December when they’ll be starting to work hard or if you’re planning a Christmas break.
Cool offGive the air conditioning a break for the afternoon and try to cool off in a more passive way. It’s summer, so take a run through the sprinklers, jump in the pool or run down to the beach. You’ll beat the heat while opening yourself up to the weather outside. See more: Learn How to Bring That ‘Summer Holiday Feeling’ Home
