Eyewash Fountains - Use & Testing

To use:

  • Push the lever to turn on. Water will run until the lever is turned off.
  • Flush eyes for 15-20 minutes.
    Note: Many fountains do not drain to the sewer; water in these fountains will overflow.
  • Pull lever back to turn off.
  • Report all accidents to the laboratory supervisor and the department chair.

To test:

  • Most fountains do not have drains, so use a bucket to catch the water.
  • Turn on the valve and let the water run for a few minutes. If the water is discolored or contains a lot of sediment, let it run until it is clear.
  • Report problems (e.g., unequal spray, missing screen, no water) to the Chemistry office.
  • Write the date and your initials on the tag.
