Car Wash Information

See the full testimonial here

A Hydrokleen car wash wash water reclaim system will reduce car wash water usage by at least 60-70%. These systems have been successfully used to completely eliminate the requirement of a sewer connection. This capability can be essential when permits are required for new construction. As fresh water and water discharge costs continue to rise, installing a Hydrokleen wash water reclaim system into an existing car wash can really pay off.

Hydrokleen filtration and wash water treatment systems will eliminate pathogens, control odors and consume organics, including soap and organic waxes in the recycled wash water. This is especially important in self-serve applications where it is difficult to control the waste material that can enter the collection sumps.

Recently, municipalities have required car wash operators to stop operations during periods of drought. This issue can be resolved by installing a Hydrokleen wash water recycling system. Once installed the use of fresh water is reduced. It is simple to demonstrate that a properly equipped car wash can wash a vehicle using less water than an automobile owner can hand wash a car. In addition, the car wash captures the wash water for responsible treatment before reuse or disposal to the sewer. This eliminates the storm drain and ground water contamination concerns associated with individuals washing their own vehicles.

Progressive municipalities are beginning to offer exiting car wash operators cost sharing incentives to update existing facilities with wash water recycling systems. Typically, a minimum 50% reduction in water consumption is required to qualify for the cost sharing programs.

An excellent solution If the car wash system is producing water for a spot free rinse, is to make the water used for generating the spot free water the only fresh water allowed into the wash. All other washing operations can be performed with properly filtered and treated recycled water.

Whether you currently operate or want to construct a self-serve, friction or touchless automatic or tunnel car wash we can supply a Hydrokleen wash water reclaim system that will meet your needs. Systems can be custom designed to integrate into space limited equipment rooms, can tolerate little in-ground water collection and storage, and will utilize existing collection and drainage systems to minimize construction cost and car wash downtime.
