Handwashing facilities during COVID virus

As shops, restaurants, venues and businesses return to work, excellent hand washing facilities are required more than ever. This can mean that additional sinks need to be installed in locations where they were not previously planned for.

For example, these could be at the entrances to common tea facilities, kitchens, restrooms, retail outlets and many more places. Because the location of these new hygiene facilities may well not have suitable gravity drainage, a pumped system will need to be used.

The discharge pipe run, including both the static head to be pumped and the route of the pipe, will determine which equipment will be required.

Saniflo is a name that many installers and plumbers are familiar with for a wastewater pumping or lifting station and these systems can offer an economical solution. However, this range should only be installed if the discharge pipework route falls within the product guidelines. This generally involves a vertical lift from the pump unit, then a drop to the discharge point.

Often, the discharge pipe run is not that simple. It may well involve a combination of the pipe running horizontally, bends around corners, double lifts, or even pumping via a ceiling space or under a floor void!

Wastewater pumping solutions for every discharge pipe route configuration are available. These can enable installers and plumbers to install handwash sinks in the required locations that employers feel are required to help staff comply with COVID-19 regular hand washing practices.
