Preparing Your Building for Reopening - Water System Flushing
Refreshing the water throughout the system is very important when a large building, complex or group of buildings (system) have not been used or have only had limited water usage for an extended period of time.
To assist you with assuring that the water in the system is refreshed and safe for occupancy again, we have developed a list of suggestions for building managers, maintenance personnel or responsible parties to use as appropriate. As these procedures will differ for each customer, we have kept the suggestions somewhat general.
