Frequent hand washing is encouraged in order to prevent the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19). As such, demand for portable sinks has risen dramatically. If you rent portable sinks, it’s more important than ever to keep them sanitized and functioning. Walex has two new products—chlorine pellets and self-adhesive repair patches—to help you keep your sinks in top shape and your customers happy.
Chlorine pellets make it easy to keep your handwash station’s holding tank clean and free from microorganisms. Simply drop one in the tank where it will dissolve in approximately one hour. One pellet normally treats 29 gallons of water. We should stress that these pellets are designed to treat non-potable water only. You’ll still need to clean your handwash stations regularly to prevent mold and grime from growing.
We also recommend investing in self-adhesive patches so you can quickly repair any damaged handwash sinks; with the demand for sinks so high, you can’t afford to have one sitting on the sidelines! Walex Porta-Patch is a UV light activated fiberglass reinforced self-adhesive repair patch. It cures in sunlight in 15 to 30 minutes or with our UV flashlight in as little as five minutes. Once cured it is rot-proof and waterproof and can be drilled, sanded or painted.
