Frequently Asked Questions

A:   Maintenance is surely the most challenging aspect of water treatment lighting. Because water treatment facilities can cover very large areas and there are so many locations that require lighting to maintain safety standards throughout the facility, keeping them all operational all the time is very difficult. In addition, because these water treatment facilities have a myriad of tunnels and water transfer locations that are underground, keeping everything operational requires a great deal of attention. This is why LED systems are ideal for these types of applications. They offer a long life, low maintenance and connectability to a system monitoring platform.

A:   Yes, most lighting applications in the facility require a wet location product listing.
