Hello Everyone,

I know I will be seeing a lot of you on Sunday. In the meantime, I have a question that I hope someone is available to answer:

If the water system in a chemistry lab is reliant on you having to flush the water every day to have the water be clean in said eye wash, can you still say that the eye wash is meeting standards? What if you expect that water to be that way (acidic with particulates) for at least several months while you are having work done on the supply pipes? If the eye wash is not meeting standards, can you legally hold a chemistry class in there that works with corrosives? Or, do you have to close down the lab until portable eye wash solution can be provided?

I really appreciate any advice you can give me about this.

Thank you,
