Hello GUEST
Thank you for visiting our forum. We hope you will find it interesting and useful.

I am pleased to be able to bring our forum back on-line. The reasons for me taking it away have not all been resolved, but the situation now is that I am able to bring it back to see if it still has a future. I will keep it live as long as there is a demand for it and that demand with be determined by its usage.

Unfortunately, I am not an owner anymore and it is very unlikely that I will be again, this means that I no longer have the ability to keep the content of the forum up to date and ensure the information given is accurate; that is something that will now depend on the forum members.

The forum will be maintained through Redstick Enterprises, but I will still monitor the forum's function, content and membership applications.

I would like to know if anybody is interested in taking on the role of Forum Administrator and helping to ensure the forum maintains the standards and quality of content set by all our members.

If anybody is interested in the role of Admin, or if any of the original Moderators wish to have that role reinstated, please let me know by emailing hof@redstick-enterprises.co.uk

I am sure that quite a few of you may have lost or forgotten your log in details, and if that is the case, then email hof@redstick-enterprises.co.uk and you will be sent a temporary password so you can log in and set your own new password.

best regards as always

The tap on the right is the stop tap.

I added the 'T' connector and then the drain tap (on the left).

In normal use the Stop tap is open and the drain tap is closed.

When I drain down I close the stop tap and open the drain tap.

Hi

This is our first winter and we have booked a Haven drain down. We have a closed central heating system and had intended to leave it on throughout the park closure in January and February with the minimum frost stat operating. However we now discover that all of the services are turned off in this period by Rockley Park. One of the Maintenance men said that they make sure that the antifreeze is topped up in the central heating system when they drain down. I can't say that I am happy about this but if anything goes wrong and Haven have drained down then I understand that it's up to Haven to sort out when they reconnect. We would not have that cover if we attempted a drain down ourselves.

Even with a sealed system, it needs electric to work. If you lost electric during a cold spell, your system could burst. Its just logic if you think about it. If any problems are covered by Haven, a few extra £'s are worth it.

We had left our central heating on (timed to come on a couple of hours a day) when haven did our drain down they switched it off at the mains so we have now left it like that,as you say if haven do your drain down it is their responsibility if anything goes wrong

Your central heating system should have antifreeze in it , if its got the correct amount in it you can turn off the power to boiler and forget about , till march.
