MPCA tips on winterizing septic system and cabin Our kids are back in school, baseball season is over, and foot- ball season is in full swing; all of this means fall and winter are knocking at the door. It also means it's time to start thinking about preparing your septic system and cabin for the cold months ahead: The Minnesota Pollution Control Agency (MPCA) offers a list of tips that can help you save energy and prevent costly problems. Septic system maintenance It is important to have your sep- tic tank pumped out regularly, and how frequently depends on how often the cabin is used and by how many people. Keeping your cabin septic system working properly avoids the risk of it leaking and possibly contaminating ground- water. To help prevent septic sys- tems from freezing, spread a layer of straw or leaves over the system to provide insulation. Furnace tips A clean, well-adjusted heating system will save money on fuel and prolong furnace life. Tasks home- owners can do themselves include vacuuming the furnace interior, changing the air filter and check- ing any belts for wear. Call a rep- utable repair service for more in- depth maintenance. If you don't plan on using your cabin during the cold winter months and are winterizing the plumbing, you can turn the furnace off. Winterize plumbing If you are going to completely close the cabin, you can shut off the water and winterize the plumbing. Bleed pipes and water heater lines completely and use recreational vehicle antifreeze, which is rated for potable water lines and is not as toxic as regular antifreeze. If you have never win- terized plumbing before, you may want professional assistance to ensure the job is done correctly. For those using the cabin period- ically throughout the winteL set the thermostat to 50 degrees and open the doors of cabinets that have pipes in them so heat can get in. Pipes can also be insulated, or wrapped with heat tape. Lawn care If you absolutelY, must fertilize, use a phosphorffree pae t and do not apply;ay ftilize within 20 feet of lakes anff:streams. Even if your home is notlocated near a lake, it is importantto go phospho- rus-free because stormwater run- off from lawns carries phosphorus into nearby water, bodies. Raking leaves and composting them will also help keep lakes clean and pro- vide you with a great natural fertil- izer in the spring. Also, don't forget to clean out gutters and add the material to the compost pile. Sealing windows and air leaks Going through the cabin and sealing windows and air leaks will help Conserve energy and save dollars for those who heat a cabin year-round. While you Check for air leaks you may also want to have some steel wool on hand to plug any holes large enough to invite critters into the cabin while you are away. Put mothballs or dryer sheets around the cabin also to keep unwanted pests out. Appliances If you are shutting off the heat in the cabin for the winter you will want to drain any appliance that uses water. Check the own- er's manual for specific guide- lines. Many electrical appliances use energy when they are plugged in, even when they are not in use. Conserve energy, prevent fires and protect appliances and electron- ics by unplugging them when they are not in use. Finally, don't forget to cover the outdoor air condition- ing unit if you have one.
