Water treatment at Boat of Garten - 14 October 2015

A water Treatment Plant has been installed in the Centre platform brick
building at Boat of Garten to provide clean treated water to the water tower
to improve the life of the steam engine boilers.
some of the trenching required

 The water pipework into the
building for the water treatment plant had been put in by the Permanent Way

and in
With the technical plumbing bits neatly done by Jim Clark (apologies no photo of the man in action!)
 Also a drain pit had been dug for the water
from the treatment plant when it back-flushed.  .

At the same time as this was being carried out Colin Frost and Ray Kenyon (above)
completed the fitting of insulation muffs on the exposed outlet water pipe
from the water tower. Last autumn trace heating tape had been fitted to the
outlet pipe and insulation muffs fitted but there were insufficient muffs to
complete the job. Colin Frost kindly offered to purchase the remaining
insulation required and fit it, in order that the trace heating would work
more efficiently this winter.
 An electrical supply was
also required for the controls and chemical pump and the SR electrical
department attended to assist with connecting this up.

Above after the installation engineer attended on 14th Oct to
connect up and commission it. (hiding Jim's pipework!)
All that the plant now needs is enclosed with a frost proof box & suitably able helpers needed soon to do this.
