How do you maintain a waterline in a dental unit?

Dental waterline maintenance should be a consistent, repeatable protocol that each dental office develops and follows. We recommend that practices follow the Three Steps to Safe Water , 1) shocking with a strong product (like diluted bleach, or Liquid Ultra), 2) using a daily treatment (straws or tablets), and 3) testing the waterlines to verify they are clean and safe for patients (FLO, R2A, or QuickPass).   

If you are unfamiliar with how to create a protocol for your office, we encourage you to check out our Complete Guide to Dental Unit Waterline Maintenance where we outline more information about shocking, treating, and testing.
