The flume has an independent water treatment plant serving its concrete flume water holding tank into which the flume skim out dewaters into. 3no. flume feature pumps draw water from the holding tank to deliver to various stages of the ride before returning to the holding tank via the flume skim out for re-treatment. The water treatment system incorporates Locron L flocculation, medium rate filtration on single grade sand beds, photo-oxidation using ultraviolet, heating, pH control, residual disinfectant control using chlorine, and alkalinity addition to overcome the low alkalinity soft local mains water supply in the Cumbria region.
