If you were to ask the average car owner to describe for you what they imagine a typical car wash involves, they will likely mention the soapy solution that is applied to every area of their vehicle, high-powered water hoses that rinse off every bit of debris, and automated brushes and rollers that wipe the car clean. Very few would mention recycled, or reuse, water being used to clean their car.
Yet, more and more modern car washes are turning to recycled water systems as they turn to more economical and eco-friendly solutions for their washes.
Let’s take a look at a few of the pros and cons of using a water recycling system in your car wash.
PRO: A more eco-friendly approach.
With a recycled water system, used wash water can be restored to a clean enough level to be used over again for future washes. This reduces the amount of fresh water your car wash is using, and reduces the amount of waste you are releasing into the environment.
PRO: A more economical approach.
A recycled water system saves you money at two different stages of your car wash: 1. By using less fresh water, your water use costs will be reduced. 2. By reusing wash water instead of letting it go down the drain, your sewage costs will be reduced.
CON: High costs of new equipment.
While the replacement of any of the equipment in your car wash is likely to be pricey, a recycled water system offers an added value in lowering your water and sewer costs. By not using as much fresh water, your business will see its water bill drastically reduced.
