Avmor - Mr. Sub Overview & Starter Kit Installation

Avmor Introductory Video




Avmor Mr. Sub Project Introduction

  • Avmor is a chemical company based in Laval, Quebec that provides various forms of cleaning chemicals and soaps/sanitizers to businesses like restaurants, retailers, hotels and grocery stores.
  • Avmor recently won a contract to re-outfit the Mr. Sub restaurant chain with their products throughout Ontario. This will consist of installing a Mr. Sub specific "starter kit" which includes both dispensing equipment and chemical concentrate products.
  • For those of you who have been a part of Avmor projects before, you can expect similarities to Extreme Pita, Mary Browns, & Booster Juice.
  • Hydropump chemical dispensing units will be part of the installation... be sure to review the course section dedicated to them!

The Starter Kit

  • A starter kit is a collection of individual products (chemicals such as foaming soap & cleaning concentrates) & equipment (such as the Hydropump dilution unit & soap dispensers) to be installed at a given location.
  • Not every starter kit is the same;  different banners can have different starter kits. This is based on the banner's individual cleaning & sanitation needs.

Before we begin...


The safety and well-being of our technicians is and always will be of great concern to CCIS, safety has to be first when starting any job and wearing proper PPE (Personal Protective Equipment), especially proper eye wear is mandatory while on a CCIS site.


It does not matter whether it is simply removing a soap dispenser or installing dilution units, there are hazards in what we do each and every day. Identifying and taking steps to minimize these hazards goes a long way in protecting your safety.

Tool Safety & Personal Protective Equipment



  • All Power and Hand Tools used for job activities are the responsibility of technician, and must be kept/stored safely when not in use.
  • Obey all safety and warning signs.
  • Hand tools must be kept in good condition. Replace damaged tools to avoid any incidents
  • Always wear rubber gloves & eye protection when handling chemicals; they are very harsh.

Hydropump Units

Please note that the Mr. Sub starter kit contains 2 Hydropump units to be installed. The second section of this course is dedicated solely these units. You should install the Hydropumps over the compartment sink before moving on to the rest of the starter kit.

Setup Blue Stuff & Orange Stuff Containers

  • The Orange Stuff & Blue Stuff  containers  are to be mounted on wall racks in the back-of-house area for this install.

  • The staff will dispense the products into designated spray bottles where it will be diluted with water. These spray bottles can then be used to clean a variety of surfaces throughout the restaurant. Orange Stuff can also be used in a mop bucket to help clean floors.


  • Start by installing the two wall racks used to hold the Blue Stuff & Orange stuff.

  • Ideally, it is best to install the racks over the mop sink. Be sure to install the racks 30" (75 cm) from the floor .
  • Some locations won’t have a mop sink, if this is the case ask the management where they would like to have the racks installed.

  • Use four screws and four anchors to mount the racks as they will be holding heavy containers of chemicals and we don’t want them falling off the walls.

  • Attach the white 30ML manual pumps to the Blue Stuff/ Orange Stuff Containers and insert them into the racks

  • Finish up by sticking the 1X stickers onto each manual pump. This sticker tells the staff how many pumps of the concentrate to use in each spray bottle.


How many screws/anchors should you use when mounting the container racks?

  • 1
  • 2
  • 3
  • 4

Setup the Blue Stuff & Orange Stuff Spray Bottles

  • Apply the Blue Stuff & Orange Stuff stickers to the 1L spray bottles (3 each). Be sure to apply the stickers as straight as you can.


  • Fill 3 spray bottles to the designated fill line & dispense 1X pump of Orange Stuff.

  • Fill 3 spray bottle to the designated fill line & dispense 1X pump of Blue Stuff.


Finishing up at the Mop Sink

  • Mount the sanitation program wall chart on the wall in plain sight near where you installed the racks for the Orange Stuff/Blue Stuff. This gives the end user instructions on how to properly use the chemicals.

We are all done setting up the Orange Stuff  & Blue Stuff! The end result should look similar to the example pictured below.

How to Install Biomaxx Soap Dispensers

  • Now it is  time to install the Biomaxx Soap Dispensers. They will be going up in the following places:
    • the hand wash sink near the back-of-house compartment sink
    • the hand wash sink near the front-of-house food preparation area.  
    • the men's washroom and the women's washroom.
  • If your location deviates from this, do not hesitate to speak with the store manager for clarification. If you are still uncertain, please contact CCIS.
  • Be sure to use three screws and three anchors when installing each Biomaxx soap dispenser,

  • Apply the "EP71" sticker to each soap dispenser.

  •  Load up each Biomaxx dispenser with product after you install it.

Where to Install the Biomaxx Soap Dispensers

  • Install the first Biomaxx dispenser by the wash station near the compartment sink. Install the Biomaxx skin care poster above the sink using double-sided tape included in starter kit.


  • Install the second Biomaxx dispenser at the hand washing station by the food preparation area near the front counter. Install the Biomaxx skin care poster above the sink using double-sided tape included in starter kit.


  • Insert the 2 remaining Biomaxx dispensers into the men’s and women’s washrooms. Place the dispensers by the sink and hand towel dispensers.




When installing a Biomaxx soap dispenser, which of the following should you NOT do?

  • Use 3 screws & 3 anchors to mount
  • Apply the "EP71" sticker
  • Mount the unit only using the adhesive tape on the back
  • Load the dispenser with product once it is mounted

End User Training


  • Train the staff on proper use of the products & equipment you have installed.
  • Be sure to also include training on the Hydropump as well as the correct method of testing sanitizer.
  • Sometimes it is hard to have the full attention of all the staff (they can be busy serving their customers). When this situation arises, wait a few moments to see when they free up, and if not “train the trainer”. Train the employee who is in charge (supervisor, manager, etc.) By doing this you guarantee that the employee with relay the correct information to his/her staff.
  • Complete an electronic sign off and record who you trained: be sure to get their signatures!

You have reached the end of the first part of this training course, hopefully you have a much better understanding of Avmor and their products.

Next step is to complete the Hydro Pump Installation Course!

Hydropump Installation

Hydropump Introduction

  • The Hydropump is a manual chemical dispenser that is used to disperse a concentrated cleaning chemical into water. The water dilutes the chemical resulting in a substance that can either wash or sanitize safely.
  • This course will provide you with the knowledge that you need to successfully install, calibrate, and train end users on the operation of a Hydropump unit.

Model 616, with directional spout

Model 617, without directional spout

Installation Environment

The focus of this course is the installation of the Hydropump in a Quick Service Restaurant (QSR) environment.

Units are installed in the back-of-house area above the 2 or 3 compartment wash sinks. This is where the establishment's employees clean pots, pans, and all manner of kitchen utensils.


The Hydropump can be used to dispense both pot & pan washing concentrate (Yellow Stuff) as well as a sanitizing concentrate (Sani Stuff).




Hydropump: What’s in the box?

1 Product Tubing (used to run concentrate from container to dispenser & from dispenser to sink basin)

2 Hardware Kit

3 Hydropump Unit

4 Ceramic Weight

5 Footvalve

6 Installation instructions


Make you have all the components listed above before starting the installation.

Equipment Removal

 Start by removing necessary equipment above the 3 compartment sink, including : existing liquid dish detergent, sanitizer dispensers & pumps


**NOTE: DO NOT REMOVE existing dilution control system in wash bays, The previous supplier will be responsible for removal.

Where to Install

For a 3 compartment sink:

Sink units will be dedicated to Wash, Rinse, & Sanitize. A Hydropump will be installed over the Wash basin (using Yellow Stuff concentrate) as well as the Sanitize basin (using Sani Stuff concentrate).

For a 2 compartment sink:

One basin will be used for both Wash and Rinse, and the other will be used to Sanitize. A Hydropump will be installed over the Wash/Rinse basin (using Yellow Stuff concentrate) as well as the Sanitize basin (using Sani Stuff concentrate).


Which product is hooked up to the wash basin Hydropump?

  • Blue Stuff
  • Green Stuff
  • Orange Stuff
  • Yellow Stuff

Hydropump: Unit Breakdown

From left to right – Plunger kit, Pump, Skirt.

A Inlet Elbow

B Outlet Elbow

Disassemble the Unit


  • Remove the skirt by unscrewing the nut holding the plunger.
  • CAUTION: The plunger is spring-loaded and will come out forcefully when the nut is removed.

  • Be careful NOT TO GET DIRT on the red O ring seal on the plunger, or the pump may not seal correctly, resulting in leaking.

Select Mounting Surface

  • The Hydropump should be mounted at a convenient height, ideally so that inlet and outlet tubing will be 6 feet or less in length. NOTE: The arrows on the pump show the direction product will move through the tube.
  • Select a reasonably flat area on which to mount the Hydropump. Concentrate should be located below the end of down flow tube. NOTE: NEVER mount concentrate higher than the dispensing unit.


The arrows on the Hydropump indicate:

  • Which direction the next sink is.
  • The direction which the concentrate flows through the unit.
  • Neither of the above

Mount the Pump


  • Use a 3/16” diameter bit to drill holes centered as indicated on the template on the back of included instructions. You may wish to copy the template instead of cutting the instructions.
  • Install anchors provided into the holes, then use the screws provided (long screws) to attach the pump to the surface selected.

Be sure to use 3 screws & 3 anchors.  

Mount the Skirt


  • Mark the holes required for mounting the skirt.
  • Drill holes and insert plugs, then mount the skirt.
  • Ensure the arrows on the skirt are pointing in the same direction as the ones that are on the pump


Insert the Plunger

  • Replace the skirt and attach the plunger to the pump with the nut. The nut should be hand tightened.
  • NOTE: Included with the pump are 2 stroke adjusters. They can be used to change the amount the pump dispenses with each push. With no adjustment, the pump will dispense 1 oz (30cc). The short adjuster reduces this to ¾ oz (22cc), while the longer reduces this to ½ oz (15cc) per push.
  • These adjusters are placed on the post on the inside of the plunger before re-assembling the plunger to the pump.

Mounting the Wall Racks

  • Mount the wall racks (2 wall racks – one for wash sink and one for sanitizer sink) . Make sure to use due diligence to plan where you will be mounting the racks, as the tubing supplied is not very long.
  • Use all four holes to mount these racks, as they will be holding heavy containers of chemicals.
  • Sometimes there won’t be room to mount them side by side, you may have to mount one under each side of 2 or 3 compartment sink.
  • Sometimes there is NO ROOM AT ALL for wall racks. If this is the case, please contact CCIS to discuss available options. Once mounted, insert one container of Yellow Stuff for wash sink, and one jug of Sani Stuff for sanitizer sink
  • One the wall racks are mounted, place the Yellow Stuff & Sani Stuff into their respective racks.  

Setup the Inlet Tubing

  • From the tubing that is provided, cut a length that will reach from the bottom of the liquid container to the supply inlet.
  • Slide the tubing through the open hole in the product cap and attach the foot valve/ceramic weight to the end. Securely tighten to product container.
  • Ensure that the suction tube is near the bottom of the liquid container in order to fully empty the container, and be sure that the liquid container is vented.
  • Slide tubing onto inlet elbow and swivel the inlet elbow as desired.
  • Try using a screwdriver as a lever to adjust the elbow if you have difficulty moving it. **Note: The purpose of the footvalve is to provide a constant supply of fluid to the equipment, as well as acting as a fluid strainer to keep the chemical pure. **

Setup the Down Flow Tubing

  • The remaining length of tubing may be used as down flow tubing (if model 617).
  • Measure approximately 18" to 20" of tubing; enough to reach the middle of the sink.
  • Slide tubing onto the outlet of the pump and swivel the elbow to direct tubing as desired.
    • Press the Hydropump pusher firmly several times to prime. Product will move through the pump in the direction shown by the arrows on the pump.

**NOTE: Install necessary tie wraps on the wall to ensure tubing stays in place** 

It is acceptable to mount the concentrate higher then the Hydropump:

  • False
  • True

The Importance of Calibration


  • Calibration is the process of determining the # of unit pumps/amount of water in the sink to achieve 200 PPM.
  • A test level lower then 200 PPM will NOT meet Food Safety Standards, while a higher level can be hazardous to health.

Calibrating the Sanitizer

  • The base formula for achieving 200 ppm is 1 pump (30 mL) of Sani Stuff for every 15 L of warm water (75 °F).
  • Start by using a measuring device (for example: 10L bucket) to fill each sink with either 30L or 45L of water, depending on the size of the sink.
  • Add Sani-Stuff to the sanitize sink & dilute at 200 ppm. 2 pumps will be required for 30L of water, 3 pumps will be required for 45L of water.
  • Test the solution using the paper test strips provided. Testing procedure outlined on next slide.

How To Use Sanitizer Test Strips

  • 1. Withdraw and tear off 1 strip of quat test paper.
  • 2. Immerse paper in solution for 10 seconds (DO NOT get excess foam on test strip)
  • 3. Remove, let dry for 30 seconds and immediately compare with specimen colors on color chart to determine corresponding parts per million (ppm)

  • Once your sanitizer is testing at 200ppm place the fill line label (sanitize- red) on the outside of the sink to indicate the water level.
  • Be sure to make a note of how many pumps of sanitizer you used. It will be recorded on the wall chart that is mounted next to the compartment sink.

What PPM should the sanitizer be calibrated to?

  • 100
  • 150
  • 200
  • 350

How to use Sanitizer Test Trips - Instructional Video


*Please note the Dispenser used in this video is not a Hydropump unit. The sanitizer testing process is the same.*



Select the strip that was tested in 200 PPM solution:

Fill In The Blanks

The base formula for the desired PPM is  pump (   ML) for every  L of warm water (75 °F).

Establish Wash/Rinse Fill Lines


  • To establish the wash sink fill line: fill sink with 30L or 45L (depending on sink size) of hot water (100 °F - 120 °F) and add 2 pumps of Yellow Stuff concentrate.
  • Apply the WASH label (yellow) to the exterior of the sink to mark appropriate water level.


  • To establish the rinse sink fill line: fill sink with 30L or 45L (depending on sink size) of warm water (90 °F - 100 °F)
  • Apply the RINSE label (white) to the exterior of the sink to mark appropriate water level.

Mount the Wall Chart


  • Install the applicable wall chart over the sink.
  • Indicate with a permanent marker on the chart, in the Sani-Stuff section, the # of pumps it takes to achieve 200 ppm in relation to where the sanitizer sink label is placed. ie: 2X or 3X

What critical information is recorded on the Wall Chart?

  • # of pumps of sanitizer required
  • Complete product listing
  • Product ingredients
  • MSDS information
