Twyford Waterworks - filter house
Twyford Waterworks - filter house
This building originally contained Haines' patent filters for removing the sludge left over after water softening. These were later scrapped but some similar filters were recovered from Wimborne and have been installed to recreate the correct appearance to this side of the filter house. They are still not quite finished and need final painting. The filters contained a series of perforated thin metal boxes covered by cloth that filtered the water and were occasionally cleaned by back flushing using the valves in front. A filter plate and its underlying manifold are on display and the filters do in fact contain the elements but these can't be seen from floor level.
