Q:How do I know when to replace the BioSleeve?
A: The BioSleeve will need replacing on average every 3 months. Urinals with more than one cistern may require more frequent replacement. Check the amount of biological (blue/green) material remaining in the BioSleeve by lifting the BioSleeve out of the waste outlet and checking the underside of the cap.
Why is there a smell coming from the urinal outlet?
The BioSleeve may have expired. Remove the BioSleeve from the outlet and check the level of biological material remaining and replace if necessary . High use areas may require that the BioSleeve be replaced more frequently than the average 3 months. It is recommended that the BioSleeves be checked at least monthly intervals to ensure adequate “good” bacterial population.
The BioSleeve may not be contacting the water table in the urinal. Fitting of an extension tube may be required.
Good and effective bacteria may have been killed by use of products that contain bleach or other harsh chemicals. Refrain from using cleaning products other than the recommended No Flush BioClean concentrate.
Flushing may be occurring too often affecting the amount of good bacteria that break down the uric acid. Reset the timer so that flushing occurs on a 4-6 hourly basis.
Daily Cleaning instructions may not be followed correctly. Ensure that cleaning staff are well versed in the cleaning procedure . ( Refer PDFs on Cleaning instructions)
Why is the urinal not flushing?
The timer is only set to open the solenoid valve every 4-6 hours to maintain the good bacteria.
Timer may need resetting or require replacement.
The solenoid does not close?
Debris from the pipes may have lodged in the solenoid valve. Ensure that a filter screen is fitted in the M&F valve prior to connection.
The solenoid valve may be worn and require replacement.
