A remote camp facility is being planned which intends to operate seasonally. Due to the remote nature of the site and lack of easy access to nearby mains, a water storage tank is being considered to supply the site fire sprinkler systems. It is intended to have atmospheric pressure, water temperature, water level, and heating system which are all supervised by a central station. During the offseason in the winter, what is the most frequent that these components must be inspected?
