Maintain
Safepurge Showerhead 2010
Safepurge showerheads are designed for minimal life-cycle maintenance. Water quality and the amount of use will determine any on-site maintenance regimen. Normally, no preventative maintenance is required. The construction of Safepurge showers is robust, the majority of units continue to be reliable in service well after one and even two decades use.

Water quality must be properly maintained, delivering only water suitable for bathing at all times.

Beware of any central water system cleaning practices such as descaling etc., which can foul water fittings. Always isolate the Safepurge installation and mixer valve from this type of heavily fouled water.

Cleaning - Legionella Control
Health and safety legionella control guidelines recommend showerheads are dismantled and cleaned at least every three months, or more frequently. However, conventional showerheads have been shown to become heavily colonised with legionella in far shorter periods.

Do not dismantle Safepurge showerheads.

Safepurge showerheads are designed to be self-cleaning and are shown to provide an effective means of legionella control. However, do follow the household cleaning practice described.


Cleaning - Household Duties
Both faces of the Safpurge spray plate must be cleaned as necessary to maintain an efficient water spray pattern at all times – use a mild cleaning / sterilising agent to remove any build up of limescale found. Safepurge showerheads should be cleaned / polished as part of household duties to keep chrome work bright and attractive.

Safepurge 6000 Purge-cycle Controller
Cleaning to be carried out periodically, frequency determined by the local conditions on site; dependant on the amount of use and water quality etc. Some establishments clean the discharge water laminar flow gauzes quarterly, however, others are satisfied that cleaning has not been necessary for over ten years.

Remanufacture
Safepurge showerheads have been shown to deliver a long and reliable life, with the vast majority operating well after one and even two decades use.

The 2010 showerhead has been designed for remanufacture at the end of its first life-cycle, the construction is robust and expected to last for significantly longer than the vast majority of other shower types.
