Grey Water System

The drinking water supply is via a spring on the fell above the Farm and is cleaned via a filter and UV system. This has proved inadequate in the past as much of it is used just to flush the toilets. We sometimes run out of water in dry weather. We have a grey water system collecting water from the rear roof. This feeds a header tank in the roof space above the Changing Room and is used to flush the Changing Room toilet. With the aid of a SDF grant from The Yorkshire Dales national Park Authority we are construction a grey water storage system, which should be operational by the end of the year. This will collect water from all of the roofs and store in four IBC tanks in the rear garden. A pump will move the water up to a header tank in the loft and supply the three toilets in the bathroom upstairs. Hopefully this will prevent us running out of water in dry periods.
