Aqua Bio Technologies, LLC announced today that Now Mart in New Hope, Minnesota is the first vehicle wash in the state to use the combination of recycled used wash water and rain water to wash vehicles. Aqua Bio, known as a global leader in vehicle wash solutions utilizing biologic water restoration, water reclaim, rain harvest, odor control, and reverse osmosis systems, installed its Bio Complete 15000 water restoration system and Pro Rain Water Harvest system at the Minnesota vehicle wash. The Bio Complete system removes used chemicals from the water, allowing it to be reused in 90% to 95% of the wash. Pro Rain collects rainwater from a roof and/or paved lot and uses a vortex separation unit to remove gravel, sticks, leaves and other solids.
“We’re setting the standard in Minnesota for other vehicle washes as we take being environmentally friendly to an entirely new level,” said Chris Robbins, Owner of Now Mart. “A busy car wash can guzzle more than 4 million gallons of water a year, but by implementing an Aqua Bio system, we’ll save millions of gallons of water annually. Rainwater from across the property will be captured, filtered and diverted to a system of underground tanks that can hold 100,000 gallons of water. Separate tanks will store water recycled from the car wash tunnel. Our goal is to avoid using city water for most months of the year.”
“We are incredibly proud to have our first-of-kind system at Now Mart in Minnesota and we hope to provide many more as vehicle wash owners look for ways to protect the environment by drastically reducing their dependence on city water and sewer,” said John P. Gibney, Vice President and General Manager of Aqua Bio Technologies, LLC.
