Signs Of A Faulty Septic System

I thought I had a septic problem when my toilet and sink wasn't draining properly. This suspicion was confirmed when sewer water started backing up in my bathtub. I figured that this was a job for a professional, so I called a local sewer service company. Sure enough, my septic tank was full and this was causing the problem. After having my tank pumped out, my drains run freely and my toilet flushes better than it has in a long time. My name is Wesley Hammond and the experience that I had with my septic system is the reason that I'm writing this blog. Since sewage backup in the house is very unhealthy, everyone should be aware of the signs of a faulty septic system. As you read these articles, you'll learn about the different types of septic system problems and how you can keep them from happening.

How To Pick Out The Perfect Hot Tub Cover

by Jacob Reed

Hot tub covers are an essential component in the long-term storage and health of your beloved hot tub. A lot of people use the less than impressive covers that might have come with their hot tub, or they may not even use anything at all. This can be extremely damaging to the internal and external operation of your hot tub, and it won't take long before you start to see the negative ramifications of this choice. Instead, make sure you get a proper hot tub cover that keeps your prized possession safe and sound throughout all the potential hazards that will be thrown at it.


Someone living in southern California will need a very different hot tub cover when compared to, say, someone in rural Michigan. If you are protecting your hot tub from strong winds that are blowing dirt and garden waste that could potentially scratch the cover, then you need a different sort of defense than if you are trying to keep several inches of snow out of your hot tub. Don't buy just any old hot tub cover, find one that will specifically help you keep your hot tub safe in the location that you currently live in, or you might find that it decays a lot quicker than expected.

Feel It In Person

It is hard to judge the quality of a cover without actually seeing and feeling the material in person. it is very easy to take a good photo of a hot tub cover, which is why online shopping can be a bit tricky. Most pool shops that sell hot tub covers are more than willing for you to come and feel the display models to get a better understanding of what they are made out of and how they will hold up. You can get a much better gauge of quality that way, and that will help you make a more informed choice moving forward.

Make Sure Your Hot Tub Cover Fits

Hot tub covers come from a lot of different brands and often not from the same manufacturers as the hot tub itself. In those cases, it is important that you check the description to see if it mentions your specific type of hot tub, otherwise, it may not fit perfectly. If you are unsure, then one way to get good advice is to take photos of your hot tub, bring them with you and ask the sales associate there if they think it will be a good fit. 

For more information about hot tub covers, contact a local supplier.
