Water System Startup & Shutdown Procedure

Arriving at Umukuri:

  1. On the fenceline at the stream beside the Bach, turn on Water Valve 1.
  2. Flush Water Filter 1 for 8 minutes, until the sediment build-up from the low point in the pipe comes through and the water runs clear.
  3. Flush Water Filter 2 until the water runs clear.
  • (If and when required, for instance loss of pressure, uncap both both filters and and clean with hot soapy water and a toothbrush. Use the Boa Constrictor tool (located in the Container) for easy opening and closing of the filter caps.)
  • (During your stay open the flush tap at the bottom of the Water Tank at the waterfall for a few minutes to remove sediment.)

Departing from Umukuri:

The Water System is shut off when Umukuri is unoccupied.

  1. Ensure all taps, showerheads and hoses are firmly switched off.
  2. On the fenceline at the stream beside the Bach, turn off Water Valve 1.
