Now on demand!

Duration:50 minutes


The restoration industry often clashes on what is acceptable when it comes to equipment setup guidelines for different types of water losses. The presenter, Mitch Byrom, VP of Specialized Education for Next Gear Solutions is an approved IICRC trainer. Mitch will offer his professional opinion on how the S500 standard is “intended to be used” and will also offer some different thoughts on how to consider equipment placement in your operations. Professional opinions on the intended use of the S500 and cited technical recommendations from published studies pre dating our industry’s IICRC S500 standard will both be discussed in a critical and objective manner.


Join us as we seek to objectively look at how equipment recommendations should generally be interpreted in light of the new S500. 


Attendees will learn: 


  • The difference between what is required in the S500 equipment section and what is only recommended
  • The different methods for practical field setup of equipment on the job site
  • Technical information about the physics of water evaporation
  • A calculation method to measure evaporation rates on the first days of a project
