Holiday Home Protection Package
98% of insurance claims for domestic water damage could have been avoided if the mains stop tap had been turned off when the holiday home was vacated.
To enable you to have peace of mind we have put together three holiday home protection packages tailored to different use requirements which can be fitted by us to your holiday home to give you complete peace of mind that you will be protected from domestic water damage.
Our bronze package
Protect your holiday home from leaks and flooding with our intelligent water stop.
At the core of the system is a timed automatic stop tap, comprising an internally mounted keypad, designed and built in the UK. The pad has water control buttons, mini infa red detection and battery indicator. This is connected via a thin 3core cable to an external frost resisting motorised ball valve inserted immediately after the existing manual stop tap under your holiday home. When your holiday home is occupied the water will stay on, when you leave your home the water will turn off automatically after a preset time, this time limit that can be adjusted. No more ringing the site office to ask them to turn your water off! No more leaving your water on between visits!
Our silver package
Our silver package includes the benefits of the Bronze Plus
Easy drain down system
To allow you to undertake a quick drain-off between visits during the winter without the need to crawl underneath the holiday home. With Easy Drain Off Valves your existing drain points are removed and up to 10 of the new Easy Drain Off Valves are inserted at strategic points. The shower valve is then altered to allow the new Easy Drain Off Valves to drain out. A drain off can be undertaken from inside your holiday home in approximately 3 minutes. When you arrive for your next stay, just push the “Water On” button on the Intelligent Water Stop and you’re back up and running.
Partial trace heating
The incoming water pipe for your holiday home is located close to the ground and are susceptible to freezing in conditions just below that required to give a ground frost. Our Trace Heating Kit will be installed to protect your incoming water pipe from freezing. With its own built in thermostat it will automatically turn on when temperatures fall below 3°C preventing your incoming water main from freezing. If you envisage using your holiday home in the depths of winter, we recommend our Gold package
Our Gold package
Our gold package includes the benefits of the silver plus
Best used on sites with extended seasons and when extremely cold weather may be present between October and March, our Gold Package has all the features of our silver package but with the added benefit of the entire domestic hot and cold-water pipework being fitted with trace heating.
The trace heating will cover all exterior pipes and all accessible internal pipework, boiler, behind shower, under sinks etc. This will enable you to enjoy your stay whatever the weather and ensure continuity of water supply.
All our Trace Heating Systems are controlled via a thermostat which will switch the system on automatically when temperatures fall below 3°C. Reliable and energy efficient thanks to the self-regulating cable which adjusts its heat output according to the external air temperature.
Trace Heating is entirely dependent on a continuous supply of electricity. You should therefore check with your park operator to ensure that the electricity supply is maintained during the winter season and any park closure periods.
