We’ve all seen the news & are aware of how dry it’s been this Winter. Now is good time to discuss the benefits of using Car Wash Water Recycling Systems.
Given that Australia is experiencing one of it’s worst droughts in years, it’s a poignant reminder that this lack of water could in fact affect car wash businesses like it did in the early 2000’s.
Between 2001-2003, the water crisis was so severe that local bodies were looking at introducing restrictions on car wash businesses. Even going so far as to propose locking meters & preventing trade. It wasn’t until the Australian Car Wash Association stepped in to negotiate & introduce sustainable car wash practices. Car washes had to show these governing bodies that they were using Car Wash Water Recycling systems & were not completely reliant on a fresh water supply. In fact, for car washes that were using recycling units, their impact on water usage was less than households who were at that time restricted to using water on odd days.
Given todays climate, we encourage you to answer the question, are you prepared?
Aside from the ability to continue trade, the benefits also consist of immediate savings when you invest in a water recycling system. Without a water recovery unit not only are you going to be paying more for water usage but also for wastewater removal & disposal.
As a guide, our users can recycle at least 80% of the water consumed in their automatic car wash using a water-recovery system. Using recycled water, you save approximately 200 litres per car at a minimum. Immediately lower your overheads by reducing your use of fresh water supply.
Carwash World has been proudly distributing Con-Serv car wash water recycling units Australia-wide for many years. We have over 100 units out in the field.
The unit has the smallest footprint at only 1.5 x 1.5m in size. Cleaning the filter basket is a simple 10 minute per week job. The main filter automatically back-washes after every car.
A water recycling unit is definitely something to at least consider for the benefit of your business.
