Instructions for leaving the Hut in the winter and procedures to avoid frost damage.

The mains water is switched off by closing the valve ( red lever ) in the lower right hand corner of the plant room in the ablutions area. It is not necessary to drain the water completely except in very severe frost or a prolonged power cut. Drainage should be left to the local custodian, Chris Macrae who would usually make the decision to drain off the water

Gas going to the hobs in the kitchen should be switched off at the valve in the south east corner of the kitchen (see photograph in manual. The gas should NOT be switched off at the valve outside the Hut.

Add a handful of salt to each toilet bowl.

Do not switch off the mains electricity which would turn off the frost protection.
