Do I need to test an operatory that is not in use?

The short answer is no.

If you have an operatory that you are not going to use for the extended future, we recommend purging the waterlines to get them as dry as possible before discontinuing use. Before using the operatory again, shock the operatory with Diluted Bleach or Liquid Ultra and then testing to verify the waterlines are safe for patient use.

Unsure on if you need to shock your operatory or not? Don’t sweat it, our Safe Water Team is here to help. Give us a call at 888-843-3343 so we can give you and your office our expert opinion and help simplify waterline maintenance as much as possible.
