Why should eyewash stations receive maintenance?

Whether the eyewash stations contain a different solution other than water, or if it's only water, they should receive regular maintenance. If not cleaned and maintained, the flushing liquid may be contaminated without the workers knowing and may worsen an injury when used. Furthermore, pipes can be clogged or some parts may rust. OSHA and ANSI require regular cleaning and maintenance of eyewash stations.
