How do you track equipment lifespan/replacement?
With liability in mind, we are trying to find a way to:
1. Figure out the true lifespan of functional equipment? (not just manufacturer's warranty)
2. What sort of replacement plan/cycle are you on?
3. How do you track yours? Just write on it with Sharpie?
Replacement plan/cycle--when needed.
at my own studio, the equipment is under constant scrutiny because my husband and I are the only ones using it, and we make sure it is in proper working order or else replace or repair as needed.
At a club where I belong, all is inventoried, and repairs or replacements are done as needed but not on a pre-determined cycle.
