No, thanks... the posts are already in place, and run the water to the
tables too.

The gripe has to do with wondering why they didn't run the water and
electric from the ground up.

The bio lab next door has drop-down electric, but just 2'x4' moveable
tables, no permanent lab stations, no running water but the one sink in the
back. They also put no floor drain in the greenhouse.

[tap-l]Emergency shower drain?


Hi all. I teach at a small hig school. Physics, Chemistry & Earth. Our building has been renovated - in the final stages of cleanup. My new class/lab is gorgeous. I just have 2 complaints... one which leads to this e-mail. I realize the purely physics folks probably don't have emergency showers in their labs, so peek in your neighborhood Chem lab and tell me....




Is it, or is it not standard practice to place a floor drain somewhere is the vicinity of an emergency shower?




I have no floor drain anywhere. Even my eyewash station drains out onto the floor - such that I can't even place a bucket under it.


The engineers/contractors reasoning: "Well its just for emergencies. A drain is not required by code. The janitor can just mop up if you ever use it."


Is this flipping ridiculous, or am I pitching a fit for nothing?



Curious,

Samantha





(if you're curious about the second complaint it has to do with the 4x4 posts coming down in the middle of each lab station because they didn't think(?) to to run the electric and water to the station while they had the floor all dug up for the lab sink drains, so they are running down from the ceiling.... yes, they had to dig drains for 8 sinks... why not a floor drain at the same time?????)
