The threat of contaminated water is one of the hottest issues in the water distribution business today. For the most part, technology, technique and testing control the problem, but as infrastructure expands and old systems are pushed to fulfill their roles, the links in the once sturdy chain weaken and are at greater risk.
Selecting the correct backflow prevention method to ensure safe water

Waterless urinals — which also are called no-water, no-flush or no-flow urinals — have endured a few hard knocks in the media in recent years. While these systems have worked well in a variety of facilities for decades, two 2010 incidents caused many facility managers to reconsider this technology.
Separating fact from fiction about waterless urinals
The RP 340 is a small, light press tool for joining copper, stainless steel and PEX tubing, and black iron pipe. It has increased user maneuverability and a service-interval cycle of up to 42,000 cycles. It comes standard with new 18-V advanced lithium 2 batteries and an optional AC power adapter. It offers bolt sensor technology to ensure jaws and attachments are securely connected to the tool. Other features include a quick cycle time, operation in extreme temperatures and jaw rotation up to 270 degrees.
The 700APD is a portable, pneumatic, heavy-duty power drive that provides power for threading pipe and conduit up to 2 in. in diameter. The safety arm absorbs forces generated during threading and frees up the operator to oil the dies during threading. Its 4-hp pneumatic motor turns at 28 rpm no load. It has a maximum torque of 400 lb-ft and uses R12+ segmental dies and dropheads.
The PE scraper is a lightweight, reliable, economical option for electrofusion. It removes dirt and oxidation from the outside diameter of the pipe in preparation for the electrofusion process. Its spring-loaded blade does not skip, as it keeps consistent pressure on the pipe to yield a smooth, finished surface. A minimal amount of PE is scraped away to reveal the clean pipe. The scraper can be used on the edge of the pipe, but also anywhere along the length. A 6-in. clearance is needed for turning the scraper around the pipe.
The lightweight and compact 238-P-powered soil pipe cutter makes it easier to cut soil pipe in hard-to-reach spaces. Designed for use with a ½-in. impact driver, the tool incorporates a chain that can cut no-hub or service-weight cast iron, clay or concrete pipe. Its length, removable handle and low-profile cutter wheels provide the versatility to work with inconveniently placed pipe. The cutter’s two-directional operation lets users score pipe before cutting for cleaner cuts.
