Category 5 ScubaTANK® AB: Morriston Hospital Case Study


At very short notice, the Morriston Hospital in Swansea had an urgent need for an all-in-one break tank and booster set for a temporary wash down facility needed to enable them to effectively clean and sterilise their fleet of ambulances. This is vitally important at any time but particularly so at present as a number of these ambulances are currently being used to transport and treat patients with COVID-19 and so being able to thoroughly clean and sterilise each vehicle after every use is crucial to help to prevent further spread of the virus.


Getting the right the product solution, one that would enable the ambulances to be effectively cleaned and sterilised after each use thus protecting the crews, their equipment and the wider community. The product solution also had to reduce any risk of contaminating the mains water supply and it had to be available quick.


We rose to the challenge and recommended a fully WRAS approved Dutypoint ScubaTANK® Category 5 compliant all-in-one break tank and booster set, which is specifically designed to take up little floor space in applications including ambulance stations or temporary hospital wash down facilities such as this, to provide adequate water pressure, and crucially prevent backflow and any risk of contaminating the mains water supply.

From initial enquiry to delivery on site took just 48 hours.

We were really pleased to be able to help out the Morriston Hospital and remain on hand to help other UK hospitals facing similar challenges.

Dutypoint can provide the follow pre-packaged Category 5 wash-down solutions for immediate dispatch:

  • Category 5 compliant wash-down cold water booster sets
  • Category 5 compliant water tanks
  • Pumps

Dutypoint was able to support another UK nightingale hospital this week with the supply of a cold water booster set at very short notice.

The Dutypoint VT3 was needed to supply all the required water for the new Swansea Bay facility which will see Bay Studios, a film studio and former factory, transformed into an 850 bed field hospital to support the NHS’ COVID-19 response in Wales.

The initial enquiry came in on Thursday 9th April and the Dutypoint team worked over the Bank Holiday weekend to ensure the unit was ready to be delivered to site on schedule today (Wednesday 15th April).

Dutypoint remains fully operational and on hand to support our clients with any short notice requests for cold water pressure boosters, Category 5 compliant break tanks and other water systems, all vitally important to ensure that critical facilities such as the Swansea Bay Hospital have an adequate supply of clean water for handwashing and wash down.
