Water is a precious resource we need to conserve. Today’s modern car washes are adapting their technology to help the environment in a big way. Water reclamation is not new, but it has gained popularity in the past few years as more companies aim to conserve water.
With water reclamation technology, you are saving the earth and cutting costs. This is one of those rare situations with a double win for your business. With these wins, you must also understand how critical the maintenance of your reclaim system is. The number one sign that your water reclaim is not at its best, performance-wise, is the smell. Chemical incompatibility can cause unregulated bacteria growth, and this bacteria growth is what causes that nasty smell. This smell can also be the precursor to an increase in sludge in your water separator causing spots on customer cars, and a potential loss of customers.
How do you prevent this bacteria growth? By using chemicals that are specifically designed to maintain and balance the ecosystem in your water reclamation system. Older cleaner technologies that rely on phosphates, hydrocarbons (gas, diesel, and oil), and the dirt that you are removing from cars can all work together to create a perfect environment for smells to thrive and sludge to build up. Only by using chemicals that are marked as reclaim safe can you be assured that your water reclaim system will remain in top shape.
