- Targeting a long lifespan and low operating cost, the design should largely reduce the need for maintenance and repair. However, it should encourage and facilitate simple preventive maintenance when required to extend the product lifespan.
- Telemaintenance capability would allow performing remote diagnostic of the whole system to anticipate possible failures but also support calibration and maintenance procedures.
- Clean water must be available and used to avoid contamination. Parts that must be cleaned must be unmountable without any tool. The parts must be chlorine (bleach) resistant. The transparency of the hood walls must be checked to remain transparent after several years of use and cleaning.
