How Large A Wash Bay Do You Need?

The ingenious thing about hydropads is that a single pad can be combined with any number of other Hydropads to create the perfectly sized wash rack for your application. Hydropads come in a standard unit size of 8 feet wide, however, they can be manufactured to any size length that you need.

Maximize Your Water Capturing

Walls typically serve two purposes, to keep thing out and to keep things in. With water, our walls are meant to keep things in. Hydropads are an excellent means of collecting wastewater and debris while washing; but without walls, overspray and carry-off mean that you are not being 100% efficient with water recovery.

Hydropad walls are available to 6' outdoors and much higher indoors. They can be placed on one side or all sides, whatever you need to get the job done right.

No Job is Too Small, or Too Large

Washing equipment responsibly is not an issue with Hydropads. Anything that needs to be cleaned with a pressure washer can be placed on the patented Hydropad Wash Rack. Whether you're washing parts, engines, vehicles, or equipment; it can be done with Hydropads!
