We have started using a system from Bradley (Menomonee Falls, WI) which has a self-contained reservoir mounted on a wheeled receiver cart.  The water is filtered and changed out on a two-week basis (I think) by the company.  It's a service we pay for, but that's industry for you.  I don't know the purchasing details.  These may be available from safety supply houses and there may be other brands.


The mobile station gets around the risk of debris coming from the pipes, water overshoot in the eyewash fountains onto the floor, and the frigid water we have most of the year in Wisconsin.  Of course, that last bit won't be a problem in San Antonio.  The cart can be rolled and placed near the work so that an affected person doesn't have to wander around the lab blindly, trying to remember where the nearest eyewash station was.

Subject: [DCHAS-L] Question about eyewash / safety shower testing



I have a quick question about eyewash/safety shower testing. I live in San Antonio, Texas. On occasion we have water restrictions. Has anyone come up with a way to reduce, reuse, or recycle the eyewash/safety shower water? I am curious to know how the Universities in California handle this.
