    may not be warm until later that evening. DO NOT STAND ON THE HOT TUB COVERS. Hot tub covers are
    for insulation purposes and are not designed to support a person or persons. They will break and you
    may be charged for replacement. Remember when not using the hot tub, leave cover on so hot tub will

    products or personal wipes should be flushed at any time. If it is found that feminine products or
    personal wipes have been flushed and clog the septic system, you could be charged damages of up to
    $1,000. Please allow at least 2 hours between laundry loads. The septic cannot handle multiple loads.

    property and do not want fires of any kind inside or out.
