What do we think to the water use figures for Kimberlin over late afternoon Saturday 8th February and overnight into Sunday 9th February? Our consumption peaked along with occupancy mid afternoon, then rose dramatically to a spike of around 1600 litres an hour before running consistently through the night at around the 1200 litres an hour mark. This didn't fall back until we opened again at 10am on Sunday. There's a small rise in overnight electrical useage and a big jump in gas use when our heating system usually shuts down to minimum. Stuck valve on the roof tank and pumps working overtime might explain the water, but what about the gas use?

There is a long-standing pattern of consumption in the Library whereby on both Saturday and Sunday evenings the gas consumption drops to zero for several hours. It seems to occur at around midnight on Saturdays (for at least an hour) and around 10pm on Sundays (for at least two hours).
We can see this in the 'expected' consumption levels and on Saturday it seems to be happening as normal. Not so on Sunday.
Water was also a problem the previous weekend with large overnight consumption.
