Choosing Right Fixtures Can Mitigate Spread of Infectious Diseases

There is no bigger topic worldwide today than figuring out how to reduce the spread of infectious diseases.

James Dipping explains how plumbing fixture selection is a critical piece of mitigating spreads in hospitals and other healthcare facilities in his article “8 Tips for Healthcare Fixture Selection that Reduce the Spread of Infectious Diseases and Increase Patient Safety” for HVAC & Plumbing Product News magazine. His tips include keeping faucet selection simple by choosing heavy-duty, chrome-plated faucets made by the same manufacturer to streamline maintenance and repairs, coordinating faucet and sink size to minimize splashing that leaves water on countertops and sends droplets into the air, and eliminating aerators.
