WHAT IS THE ANSI Z358.1 STANDARD?


The ANSI Standard defines emergency eyewash and shower design, location and temperature requirements for proper functionality and usage.

Today, simply providing emergency eyewash and shower products is not enough. Facilities must inspect, test, and monitor emergency equipment system readiness and performance. Each unit must be accessible, usable, and tepid-water equipped.

Even though the most current ANSI Z358.1 standard now dates to 2014, most emergency eyewash and shower units across North America do not yet comply with these significant provisions.
It was First published in 1981 and has been revised in 1990, 1998, 2004, 2009, and 2014.

2009 Revision Includes:
    • Temperature range for water delivery
    • Simultaneous use
    • Eyewash testing requirements

2014 Revision Includes:
    • Design, manufacture and installation of emergency showers
    • Equipment installation location
    • Adjusted measurements

Water Heater Making Loud Noises or Not Getting Enough Hot Water?




Is your hot water heater making loud popping or banging noises? 

Are you getting less hot water than you used to?

If you answered yes to the above questions then it may be time to delime your water heater.

Most manufacturers now require you to perform routine maintenance on your hot water heater in order to keep it running at its peak and extend the life expectancy of the heater.
Why do I need to delime my water heater?

With the advent of high input and larger storage tanks in both commercial and residential heaters, deliming has become a necessity of modern maintenance. Lime (CaCO3), is the most notable factor when discussing water hardness. Lime is present in every water system to some degree across the entire United States. Since lime is inversely soluble [the more you heat, the more lime comes out], higher usage, excessive hardness, and increased heating surface can lead to a high incidence of “limed-up” heaters.
