Backflow is bad news

Posted on April 1st, by editor in Caring Times. No Comments

Recent European directives designed to prevent mains water becoming contaminated by back-flows from sluice room washing equipment can pose costly problems for users of old equipment, according to sluice room specialists Stanbridge. Stanbridge says the problem is easily resolved by its range of washer disinfectors, incorporating Type A air gap tanks as standard to prevent water getting back into the mains supply. According to Stanbridge, users of machines connected directly to the mains water supply may be asked by local water authorities to fit air gap tanks into their systems and, in many cases, this could exceed the cost of fitting a new Stanbridge machine which would automatically meet the requirement.
