Instructions for using the Struka riverside sauna
There is a light chimney in the sauna stove and there is no separate smoke damper.
Before setting the fire in the stove furnace, please check that the furnace is clean and that the ash compartment has been emptied. Ashes and carbon can sometimes accumulate in places where the air should flow. This prevents effective combustion. When the furnace has been cleaned, use small trees and sticks to ignite the fire. Do not use liquids or oils to set the fire.
When the fire is set, you can also add bigger firewood. During the burning, the combustion air can be reduced by pushing the ash compartment closer. Before adding more wood, it is advisable to improve the embers, ie to disperse larger coals and stack them evenly over the grate before laying the next layer of firewood.
When bathing is finished, you should add a couple of firewood into the stove to ensure that the sauna drie. After use, drain the ashes into the ash container and sweep the floor. Bring new firewood to the sauna for the following guests. Wipe the sauna benches with a damp cloth.
