When you tap water: Water stop tape for disinfecting taps
Water stop tapes, or water stops, are an innovative water stop tape designed to stop the flow of water, which is the main source of disinfection.
The technology uses a tape that is attached to the water source.
Water stops can also be used to protect the water from corrosion.
The tape has a hole cut in it, which can be used for sealing the tap or the tapwater, which then needs to be disinfected to be safe.
It is not an absolute requirement to use the tape, however.
