Expecting holiday visitors? Do you entertain regularly? Wouldn’t it be great to keep guests from flushing non-septic-safe items? That can be an awkward conversation. The solution: a stylish bathroom sign.
Only toilet paper and waste should be flushed down your commode if you have a traditional or aerobic septic system. Some guests may realize they shouldn’t flush other objects, but some don’t. And if they do, they may not realize that even if something is “flushable” it can still harm your system or clog up your plumbing (such as baby wipes, makeup remover wipes, tampons, and cigarette butts). That’s where a stylish sign can be handy.
If you are craftsy, you could make one yourself. Refer to Pinterest for fun, creative ideas. You can also purchase one from Etsy for $5-$40. Etsy has a ton of stylish signs that could go well with modern bathroom décor.
Don’t let septic mishaps derail a social gathering! This small investment can make a big difference in keeping your system running and healthy.
