3 Advantages Of Using Recycled Water For Vehicle Wash Systems
There are several financial and environmental reasons for incorporating water recycling into your vehicle wash systems. For any business that needs to regularly maintain and clean their fleet of vehicles, reclaiming some or all of your water from each wash can yield significant cost savings, as well as boosting your commitment to sustainability. In this article, we look at the three main advantages of investing in a recycled water system.
1. Eco-Friendly Approach
Using recycled water helps reduce the volume of fresh water used in each wash cycle, which is good for your cleaning budget but also good for the environment, too. Water reclamation reduces the impact of water and effluent discharge on open water sources and waterways, in which waterborne contaminants can damage crops, livestock, and local ecosystems. By taking responsibility for water treatment and conservation within your business, you can reduce the impact of your fleet on the environment, while still maintaining excellent levels of cleanliness and hygiene.
2. Efficiency And Cost Savings
By recycling or reclaiming the same batch of water multiple times – a good system will allow an indefinite number of reclamation cycles – you’ll reduce your operating overheads significantly compared to using mains water every time you operate your vehicle wash system. With an efficient system, complemented by reclaimed wastewater from greywater, cooling towers, and rainwater harvesting, you’ll be able to minimise or completely eliminate your mains water expenditure, significantly lowering the cost of cleaning your vehicles.
3. Reduced Downtime
By using recycled water within your vehicle wash bays, you’ll be able to cut back on the downtime and maintenance associated with preparing for each cycle – such as refilling tanks, pumping and transporting freshwater around site. The result is a faster wash cycle with quicker vehicle throughput, and a shorter recharge/turnaround time between washes, so you can process more vehicles at the same time, with greater operational efficiency and higher overall productivity levels.
