Quality of Water System

  • Closed system
  • Water pressure regulators
  • Calibrated dosing pump
  • Water flow meter
  • Double system with coloured handles to choose between clean or medicated water per compartment
  • In each compartment: pipes with minimal bends and a flushing tap at the end

The water treatment installation and the dosing pump need to be inspected and calibrated by a specialist at least once every year to ensure good quality of water and accurate dosing of medication. Regular cleaning and disinfection (at least after every medication and between two batches) is a must.
