The Gardener Mzwa will service the pool twice a week to backwash and chlorine. He will use the bottom gate to access it. 

Private pool with a secure fence around the pool. Please ensure all umbrellas are down during heavy wind & at night. Please bring all outside cushions in when raining.

BACK UP POWER

In the event of Loadshedding or power failure, the inverter system will need to be switched on manually at the DB board in the kitchen (this is situated in the cupboard to the LHS of the oven). Please fully push down the main switch to DB, and reverse this action when the lights/power are restored. This will power lights, Internet and TV for up to 4 hours. 

The inverter system is located in the cupboard by the wine cellar. After 4 hours or when the inverter batter is running low, you will hear a beeping sound before it switches off completely. 

 

One DB Board is located in the garage and the 2nd one is in the kitchen cupboard.
