Keeping your Commercial Ice Machine disinfected and free from Covid-19 may be as easy as changing the Water Filter.

According to the current CDC guidelines regarding drinking water disinfection;

“The virus that causes COVID-19 has not been detected in treated drinking water. Water treatment plants use filters and disinfectants to remove or kill germs, like the virus that causes COVID-19. The Environmental Protection Agency regulates water treatment plants to ensure that treated water is safe to drink. Currently, there is no evidence that the virus that causes COVID-19 can be spread to people by drinking treated water. COVID-19 is spread mainly through close contact from person-to-person. You can continue to use and drink water from your tap as usual.” 

https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/faq.html?CDC_AA_refVal=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.cdc.gov%2Fcoronavirus%2F2019-ncov%2Fphp%2Fwater.html#COVID-19-and-Water

So the free chlorine that is still available in your municipal water, introduced by your local water treatment plant according to EPA Guidelines to oxidize any germs in the water can continue to work in your ice machine provided you don’t filter it out with a water filter that contains carbon. If you are already using an Everpure water filtration system containing carbon like the i2000, EV961222/27 or the i4000 EV961232/37 you just need to change to the 4SI or 7SI Everpure carbonless cartridge/s.

EV9606-51, 4SI with a rated capacity of 15,000 gallons.

EV9606-01, 7SI  Rated capacity of 25,000 gallons.

Developed originally to help with the fight of Legionella in Hospitals, Pentair® Everpure® designed the 7SI and 4SI  to help hospitals keep their ice machines in compliance with ASHRAE Standard 188p, and help provide critical protection from protozoan cysts and scale. These unique water filters supply a  number of important benefits:

•  Compliance with ASHRAE Standard 188p. Allow municipal chlorine and chloramine residual to pass through to the ice machine.

•  Slime Reduction. Chlorine can help to reduce the growth of slime and bacteria inside the ice machine.

•  Cyst Reduction. Submicron media reduces cysts such as Cryptosporidium and Giardia that can cause waterborne diseases in humans (reduction occurs by mechanical means*).

•  Scale Protection. Scale inhibitor reduces scale deposits that can cause downtime, maintenance calls and increased service costs. Scale can also result in the clogging of distribution lines, freeze-up on evaporator plates, and cause pumps, solenoids and probes to malfunction or fail.

 •  Particulate Reduction. Pentair’s proprietary Fibredyne™ media has superior dirt-holding capabilities versus conventional carbon block filters. •  Retrofits Everpure Brand Filter Heads. Quickly and easily convert Everpure Insurice®, 4/7CB5-S and 7FC-S Systems to 4SI and 7SI Systems simply by swapping out the filter cartridges. There’s no need to remove an old filter head and invest in a new one, which saves you money and labor.

•  The 4SI System Fits in Tight Spaces. Its space-saving size allows for easy placement behind a countertop ice machine or inside a cabinet.

•  Easy to Install and Maintain.

•  Certified to NSF Standards 42 and 53.

•  Carries the Pentair Everpure Name. Everpure has been providing water solutions for over 80 years, and is one of the most respected brands in water filtration worldwide.

Coca-Cola just invented a way to save the Free Style soda machine from COVID-19!

Coca-Cola has figured out a way to save its highly profitable fountain soda business from becoming extinct at the germy hands of COVID-19.

The solution: QR codes and your smartphone.

Coca-Cola said Monday it has made its popular Freestyle soda machine — which could be found at scores of fast-food restaurants such as Wendy’s and McDonald’s and corporate offices — completely contactless. By updating the machine’s software package, a consumer will be able to hold their camera up to the machine’s display which will auto-scan a QR code. That then connects to the cloud and brings the machine’s user interface direct to your smartphone. The drinker then selects from the full menu of options and hits pour. No app download will be required.

Staying hydrated and avoiding heat stroke as the heat index approaches 112 degrees!

It’s already 95 plus in South Florida and according to a recent NOAA forecast this heat will be sticking around until September! Heat-related illnesses occur when your body can’t keep itself cool. As the temperature rises, your body dissolves sweat to stay cool. On hot, humid days, the increased moisture in the air slows down this process. When your body can’t cool, your temperature rises and you can become ill. Hot weather and exercise are the main causes of heat exhaustion and heatstroke. In hot settings, you need to be mindful of the temperature outside. The heat index is not the same as the temperature. It measures the air temperature plus the effects of humidity. A heat index of 90°F or higher is dangerous. Prolonged exposure to high temperatures increases your risk of heat-related illnesses.

If a person is displaying known heat illness symptoms, take their temperature. A reading of 104°F or more means they probably have heatstroke. You should call 911 and get medical care right away. There are many things you can do to prevent heat-related illnesses. Babies, children, and elderly people are more sensitive to heat and require extra attention. You also are at greater risk if you are ill or obese, or have heart disease. People who work outside or in a hot setting also are at risk of heat exhaustion and heatstroke. Don’t go outside when the temperature and heat index are high. If possible, stay indoors in air-conditioned areas. If you must go outside, take the following precautions.

  • Wear lightweight, light-colored, loose-fitting clothing.
  • Protect yourself from the sun by wearing a hat or using an umbrella.
  • Use sunscreen with a sun protection factor (SPF) of 15 or higher.
  • Avoid or limit drinks that contain caffeine (such as tea, coffee, and soda) or alcohol.
  • Schedule outdoor activities for cooler times of the day — before 10 a.m. and after 6 p.m.
  • Take frequent breaks from the heat and outdoor activities.
  • Drink plenty of water throughout the day. Dehydration and lack of salt contribute to heat-related illnesses. Some sports drinks can help replenish the salt in your body lost through sweating. Drink water or other fluids every 15 to 20 minutes, even if you don’t feel thirsty. If your urine is clear, you are probably drinking enough fluids. Dark-colored urine is a sign that you’re dehydrated.

Looking to create your very own hydration station at home! You may want to consider an Industry top seller like the H-300 drinking water system. The same commercial quality that makes Pentair® Everpure the overwhelming choice for water filtration in restaurants is also available for your home. Pentair Everpure exclusive precoat filtration technology combines Micro-Pure® and a unique pleated filter membrane. This highly engineered design offers the largest filtering surface area, longer filter life, and consistent performance.

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis announces Phase 2 reopening of bars, movie theaters and bowling alleys to start Friday!

Bars and pubs will now be able to operate at 50 percent capacity indoors and at full capacity outdoors, and entertainment businesses such as movie theaters and bowling alleys can open at 50 percent capacity beginning on Friday as well. Personal service businesses such as tattoo parlors may reopen as well, and people can begin gathering in groups of 50 or less, starting Friday.

Re-opening your Restaurant or Food Service Facility? If you are an owner operator and have been shut down for an extended period of time, Pentair Everpure has the following guidance for your water treatment system;

Filtration systems are designed to be operated on a continuous basis with only relatively short periods of down time (overnight and holidays). When a system is shut down for an extended period of time, there is a potential for microbiologic growth. To address concerns with system operation after the shutdown, please follow the below instructions. This is applicable to all Pentair filtration systems (i.e., pre-filters, carbon-based cartridges and Reverse Osmosis (RO) systems).

Periodic Flushing In cases where the customer knows that the system will be down for an extended time and is able to get to the system on a periodic basis, follow the below flushing procedure every 3-4 days:


Filtration Systems
Flush the system for a minimum of 5 minutes by letting the outlet water run to the drain. For systems with multiple outlet ports, flush for a minimum of 5 minutes through all ports.
RO Systems
Empty the tank through the outlet port until the pump turns on. Once the pump is on, flush the system for 10 minutes by letting the outlet water run to the drain. For systems with multiple outlet ports, flush through all ports.
Shutdown for Less Than or Equal to 7 Days:

Filtration Systems
When you put the system back into operation, flush the system for a minimum of 5 minutes by letting the outlet water run to the drain and then proceed with normal operations. For the systems with multiple outlet ports, flush for a minimum of 5 minutes through all ports.
RO Systems
When you put the system back into operation, empty the tank through the outlet port until the pump turns on. Once the pump is on, flush the system for 10 minutes by letting the outlet water run to the drain and then proceed with normal operations. For the systems with multiple outlet ports, flush for a minimum of 10 minutes through all ports.

Shutdown for Greater Than 7 Days:


All Systems (Filtration and RO)
Remove all existing filtration elements that are present in the system (pre-filters, carbon filters &/or RO cartridges) and dispose. Disinfect the system as instructed in the applicable Installation and Operations Guide for that specific system.
After the disinfection process is complete, replace the filtration elements with all new pre-filters, carbon filters &/or RO cartridges. Flush the system as instructed in the applicable IO Guide to complete the procedure.


Softeners
Initiate a manual regeneration.
Shutdown for Greater Than 30 Days:
Softeners
Disinfect per the Installation and Operation Guide for that specific unit. Generally speaking, it is adding some bleach to the brine tank before initiating a manual regeneration.


Assumptions
Pentair assumes the following in providing this guidance: Incoming water is potable.

There is no boil-water advisory or boil-water order issued by the applicable public health or governmental authority.

System is being maintained within normal operating temperature and other conditions as set forth in the applicable specification sheet.


If you have concerns or cannot confirm these assumptions for the system, follow the instructions above under the section entitled “Shutdown for Greater Than 7 Days”.
