Cars get dirty and water is needed to clean them.
A conservative amount of fresh water used to wash a car is 50 -80 litres. Multiply that by 100 cars and you have 5,000 – 8,000 litres of valuable water travelling down the sewer lines. We all like to keep our environment and cars clean and the good news is that used car wash bay water can be biologically treated and reused for the next car wash.
WATERfirst uses a bio-remediation treatment process which breaks down the organic and inorganic substances in the car wash soaps and car oils, leaving the water clean and ready for reuse. There is little water loss through this system and by installing rainwater tanks to use as top up water, you become less reliant on the need for municipal water.
