Jenny, Weren't any laboratory personnel involved in the design process? What about safety? The ANSI standard, Z358.1-1998, Emergency Eyewash and Shower Equipment doesn't appear to state the shower should be drained. The appendix, under waste disposal, states 'consideration should be given to the proper disposal of waste flushing fluids...'. FWIW, when our lab was built in '92, the showers were placed above or in close proximity to floor drains. Unfortunately, the locations chosen to become floor drains happened to be local high spots in the floor... The information contained in this e-mail message and any attachments may be confidential.

However, they are not connected to any draining or plumping system in the building. The engineers stated that it's not required by any feds or state regulation to connect the eyewash/shower to the drain. Does any one know if there is a regulation? Any comments are appreciated.
