Safe Building 101: Creating a Climate-Controlled Space In Your Home

As I started to increase my art collection, I wanted to make sure that my investment was protected. I wasn't sure exactly how to store it all when it wasn't on display, but I knew I needed to do something. I decided to talk with a local construction contractor about how to secure my art, and he suggested a climate-controlled secure room in my home. They built a vault-like space in the house that is perfect for long-term storage. I created this site to showcase what was done in the hopes that others may seek the same solution. I hope the information here helps you to secure your financial investment as well.

3 Things That You Shouldn't Do In Your Septic Drain Field

Your septic drain field might just look like a patch of your grass on your property, but if you aren't careful, you could do damage to your septic tank and system if you aren't careful about what you do in this area. These are a few things that you shouldn't do in your septic drain field.

1. Drive

If at all possible, it's smart to avoid driving your vehicle over your septic drain field. This additional weight can be too much for this area to bear, and it can cause damage to your septic system if you aren't careful, such as by crushing pipes. Even though occasionally driving over this area might not cause any damage, it's best to avoid doing it when you can. Additionally, you should not park on top of your septic drain field, and if you are having a party or will otherwise have a lot of people parking on your property, you should consider roping this area off to prevent people from driving or parking there.

2. Plant Trees

Did you know that planting trees and other plants that have major root systems can be a bad thing for your drain field and septic system? This is because as your plants grow, the roots can spread and can cause damage to pipes and the soil. Even though a few small plants with tiny root systems might not be a big deal, planting trees or other larger plants should be avoided.

3. Pouring Out the Wrong Things

Chemicals can affect your septic system's health. Not only should you be careful about what you pour down your drains and flush down your toilet, but you should also be careful about what you pour out in your drain field. Be cautious about pouring out cleaning supplies, paint, pesticides and other similar products in the drain field area. Otherwise, you have to worry about the good bacteria in your septic system being killed, making it impossible for your system to properly do its job.

As you can see, there are a few simple things that you should keep in mind in your drain field area if you want to keep your septic tank and its accompanying system working as they are supposed to. Otherwise, you might find that your septic system could be seriously damaged, and pipes may have to be replaced, or your septic tank might have to be pumped prematurely because it is not able to do its job as it is supposed to.
