This holiday season, spend you time with friends and family, not fixing your septic system or unclogging a drain.

Septic systems can overload during the festivities, and it’s important to stagger your use of water. Don’t run the dishwasher, washing machine, and have a shower all at once.

It’s also a good idea to think at the sink. Food waste goes in the kitchen waste bucket or in the garbage. When it comes to toilets . . . they aren’t trash cans. Don’t be tossing your unused leftovers in the toilet. And remember, if it’s not one of the 3Ps: pee, poo or paper (toilet paper that is), then don’t flush it!

We at MSR Solutions Inc., wish you are yours a happy and festive holiday season.
