"The DVD is an excellent educational video for people who want to learn more about how the SARS virus escaped from the plumbing system of the Amoy Gardens complex in Hong Kong," said GP Russ Chaney, executive director of The IAPMO Group. "Viewers will also find out about floor drain trap seal protection, airborne cross contamination routes and product compliance."
