Eliminate Hose Hassle With an Outdoor Faucet!

Today, I’m going to give you a pass. Go ahead and throw out the guilt. Because life is short. And sometimes, we deserve a little splurge once in awhile. Or in this case, a splash. So go for it. And really consider how much easier your life could be with an outdoor faucet.

Make Life Easier With an Outdoor Faucet

If you’re in your lawn a lot, you might already know of this little hassle called “the garden hose.” Sure, it’s wonderful when it comes to taking water from the house to your lawn; however, maneuvering it can be quite the ordeal. Kinks prohibit water from flowing. Mud can make reeling it back in a total mess. The back-and-forth trips from the house to end of the hose can really stack up. And let’s face it — when its 103 degrees outside, the last thing you want is to spend any more time outside messing with a hose.

Make Watering Your Plants Faster and Easier

An outdoor faucet can be installed near your landscaping and strategically placed so that it’s easily accessible and convenient. No more stretching to get the hose to the far corner of the yard or hooking two hoses together. Just hook up a short, easy-to-handle hose where you need, and you’re ready to go. A water supply right near your plants makes it easy to beat the heat and water your plants. Plus, it can be installed to fit in with your landscaping without becoming a total eye sore for your lawn.

In order for plants and lawns to survive, they need ample water — particularly in this heat. An outdoor faucet removes the hassle of dragging out the hose, walking back to turn on the water, walking back to water the plants, returning to turn off the water, and the reeling in back the hose — not to mention saving the water spent during those trips back and forth. With an outdoor faucet where you need it, you’re only a few steps away at any time.

And it’s not just watering your plants. Car aficionado dedicated to soaping up your vehicle? Need an easy way to wash off your gardening tools near where they’re stored? An outdoor faucet offers a great solution.

Septic Tanks 101

If you live in a rural area or even a small suburb or town, you may be a part of the 25 percent of the population that uses a septic tank. Do you know what yours does and how to maintain it?

 What is a Septic Tank?

A septic tank is part of a septic system that is basically a small sewer treatment system for homes without a connection to sewage pipes that are provided by the government or private corporations in some suburbs and cities. A septic tank consists of a barrel that holds one to two thousand gallons of wastewater. It is connected to a wastewater pipe which transports water to a septic drain field, which then uses a microbial ecosystem to dispose of organic materials.

How does a Septic Tank work?

A septic tank usually contains two chambers. The waste water enters into the first chamber, where solids settle to the bottom and scum floats. The solids are anaerobically digested, and the liquid portion flows into the second chamber. More settling occurs here, and then the rest of the water drains into the septic drain field via the pipe. The waste is disposed of by the field’s ecosystem, and the water eventually returns back to the groundwater.

How do I maintain a Septic Tank?

Septic tanks eventually have to be emptied to discard any solids that are not digested. If this is not done, the tank can overflow into the septic drain field, which can cause major damage that requires expensive repairs. Each jurisdiction has its own rules as to how often a tank should be emptied, and much of it depends on how big or small the tank is compared to the size of the family using it. There are some things you can avoid to help your system function properly.

  • Don’t dump excessive amounts of oil and grease down your drains.
  • Don’t flush non-biodegradable items like feminine hygiene products or cigarette butts.
  • Garbage disposals are hard on septic systems, so you may want to consider compositing or otherwise discarding uneaten food before cleaning the dishes, or install a garbage disposal designed specifically to work with septic systems.
  • Use a toilet paper that is suitable for septic tanks.
