Teccare R-Foam Drain Kit – BS8580-2 Compliance

The TECcare R-Foam drain disinfection kit features a controlled and specially formulated rheopectic foam (hence R-Foam) which is applied into the U-bend/trap, replacing the water with a foam barrier that prevents bacteria re-entering the sink and with the Control fluid destroys the biofilm and its pathogens, allowing it to flush away.

Simple to use and administer and this will assist you with ensuring your plan for BS8580-2 Water quality – Part 2 – Risk assessments for Pseudomonas aeruginosa and other waterborne pathogens is backed up with technology that works.

The TECcare R-Foam drain disinfection kit comprises of a 1 litre TECcare CONTROL Intermediate fluid, a high level broad spectrum disinfectant cleaner which is used as a concentrate and poured directly down the drain to loosen biofilm and destroy pathogens in the U-bend. It is also used in a diluted mixture in the supplied NAP sprayer provided to clean sanitary ware surfaces. The kit contains a pack of the new TECcare EFFACE wipes, a long foam dosing tube and 20 neoprene sink drain seals.

The TECcare R-Foam drain disinfection kit is simple to use and, as well as protecting patients and healthcare workers, it prolongs the life of the drainage system and ensures the continuous availability of your sanitary ware and associated pipework in the plumbing system.

The TECcare R-Foam drain disinfection kit can be used for deep cleaning your drainage system as well as for routine cleaning. Swabs can be taken to determine the contamination levels of the drain.

This should be done by somebody trained in aseptic sampling techniques. The frequency of routine cleaning depends on how dirty the drain was in the first instance, but the aim is only to routinely clean the drain on a weekly basis. If the drain remains clean in between weekly cleans as evidenced by interim swabbing, then the frequency of cleaning can be extended to fortnightly.

This system can also be utilised for shower heads and shower tray drains.

Instructions for use are contained in the box.

R-Foam will achieve the following benefits:

  • Compliance with BS8580-2
  • Reducing blocking drains (and associated costs)
  • Contributing to ESG commitments
  • Less wastewater pipe replacements
  • Fewer outbreaks
  • Reduction in plume infections
