Subject: RE: [DCHAS-L] FW: Lab safety showers

We typically do not install drains at showers due to the traps going dry and allowing sewer gas into the buildings but I insist on drains to the eyewashes whenever possible. If drains are not installed at the eyewashes they do not get flushed as frequently as necessary and it makes annual testing problematic also.

My 2 cents worth...
