(a) As used in this section, “pipe-less” footspa is defined as any unit with footplates, impellers, impeller assemblies and propellers.
(b) After use upon each client, each pipe-less footspa shall be cleaned and disinfected in the following sequential manner:
(1) All water shall be drained from the spa basin.
(2) Remove footplate, and any other removable components according to the manufacturer's instructions.
(3) Scrub all visible debris from the impeller, footplate, inside walls of the basin, and other components and the areas behind or under each with a clean brush, liquid soap (labeled as such on soap product) and water. Rinse with clean water.
(4) Reinsert the properly cleaned footplate, and other components.
(5) Refill the basin with clean water and circulate the correct amount (read the label for mixing instructions) of the EPA-registered hospital-liquid disinfectant which the label claims is a bactericide, fungicide, and virucide, through the basin for at least 10 minutes.
(6) Drain, rinse and wipe the basin dry with a new, clean paper towel.
(7) Record this procedure in the pedicure equipment-cleaning log. The log shall contain the date and time of each cleaning, initials of the person who completed the procedure, and shall indicate that the cleaning was done after a client.
(c) At the end of every day and after performing the procedures provided in subsection (b) (1 through 7) and after the last client, each pipe-less footspa shall be cleaned and disinfected in the following sequential manner:
(1) Fill the basin with warm water and detergent (labeled as such on detergent product) and circulate the detergent through the spa system for at least 10 minutes (follow manufacturer's instructions).
(2) Drain the detergent solution and rinse the basin.
(3) Refill the basin with clean water and circulate the correct amount (read the label for mixing instructions) of the EPA-registered hospital-liquid disinfectant which the label claims is a bactericide, fungicide, and virucide, through the basin for at least 10 minutes.
(4) Drain, rinse and wipe the basin dry with a new, clean paper towel.
(5) Allow the basin to dry completely.
(6) Record this procedure in the pedicure equipment-cleaning log. The log shall contain the date and time of each cleaning, initials of the person who completed the procedure, and shall indicate that the cleaning was done at the end of the day.
(d) At least once each week, after completing the procedures provided in subsection (c) (1 through 3), and the disinfectant solution in each pipe-less footspa shall not be drained and the following sequential procedures shall be followed:
(1) The unit shall be turned off and the disinfecting solution shall be left in the unit undisturbed for at least 6 hours.
(2) After the disinfectant solution has been sitting at least 6 hours, rinse and wipe the basin dry with a new, clean paper towel.
(3) Record this procedure in the pedicure equipment-cleaning log. The log shall contain the date and time of each cleaning, initials of the person who completed the procedure, and shall indicate that the cleaning was done weekly.
(e) The pedicure equipment-cleaning log shall be made available upon request by either a client or a board representative.
(f) A whirlpool footspa “Not in Service” must have a notation on the pedicure equipment-cleaning log that the footspa is not in service. The footspa must have a “Not in Service” sign displayed upon the chair and be kept in a sanitary condition.
