Waterline Tip #2
Bypass Water Heaters
Some of the municipally fed dental units (the units fed directly from the building plumbing) contain water heaters to generate warm water for the patient’s comfort. Unfortunately, warming the water creates an optimal environment for microbial growth and water treatments might not be as effective under these conditions. So turn off those water heaters or have a service technician come out adjust your dental unit waterlines to bypass the heating apparatus.
