If the water drops below the top pipe significant damage will be caused to the wood fire. If this happens, we will seek to recover replacement costs.

- If any extra cleaning above and beyond what we expect from normal usage is needed we reserve the right to ask for the cost of this to be covered.
- Take care when near the wood burner, fire, surround or chimney. These become VERY hot when in use. The inlets inside the tub also become very hot and care needs to be taken around them.
