TapSnap Flushing Surveillance Monitor
The world’s first water outlet flushing surveillance monitor!
"Flushing makes a big impact on the levels of bacteria, including Legionella, in showers, taps, etc. Anything that would help people spot low-use water outlets, and tell them when to flush would be useful."
- Simon Dooner
Director, Legionella Control International
TapSnap is a low-cost tool to verify a water outlet has been flushed within a specific time. It provides a visual reminder to flush outlets, removing bacteria that may be growing in stagnant water. Within healthcare facilities, TapSnap monitors help reduce the risk of waterborne infection and supports CMS-mandated Legionella water management programs.
Innovative Design Detects and Monitors Water Flow
The TapSnap monitor is a patent-pending design utilizing a unique vibration sensor combined with a timer and LED light. It’s all packaged into a small enclosure that attaches directly to showers, eyewash stations, and faucets for easy installation, removal or repositioning. The embedded sensor detects vibration caused by water flow through the outlet and starts a timer. The battery-powered monitor acts as both a stagnation and flushing timer alerting users when to flush an outlet and for how long. Stagnation times can be set to 1-week or 1-month.
How It Works
Easily snaps on standard round diameter water outlets (0.68" - 0.88")
Green "heartbeat" LED confirms
monitor is working
Highly visible green/red LED indicators
Works on low-flow or high-flow outlets
Small, compact design
Low-battery indicator. Easy to replace
"Smart" flushing timer - longer stagnation requires longer flushing
Selectable stagnation timer - 1 week or 1 month
Does not contact the water flow
Battery-operated, no power cords
Splash-proof and water resistant
Quick to install, remove, or relocate
"Since the monitors have been installed it has reminded staff to flush the lines when the sensor flashes red.......I would like to eventually see these sensors on all eye wash stations and showers."
