Growing recognition of the “good story” of professional car washing

  • Increasing number of communities banning driveway/parking lot washing

  • Increasing number of governmental organizations promoting professional car washes

  • Increasing recognition from media and environmentally-focused NGOs

    Increasing ability for operators to evaluate equipment performance and costs

  • Manufacturers are increasingly providing water and power usage data

  • Operators are increasingly sharing this data with their customers

Consumer expectations and opportunities

  • Disconnect between consumer awareness and current industry performance (will cite our 2008 Consumer Study)

  • Operator success stories (when marketing themselves as “green”)

    Car wash certification programs and WaterSavers

  • Places where certification (i.e. drought response management) is growing

  • WaterSavers components and results to date

  • Reclaim Systems

    • ROI (based on various Ontario locations at 80% reclaim with 26,000 cycles and excludes maintenance costs)

    • Challenges unique to our market

      • Water Costs

      • Salt Saturation

High Efficiency Heating Systems

  • Typical investment ranges $30,000 - $50,000

  • ROI typically 3-4 yrs depending on system and volume

  • Combine with Energy Management System

  • Considerations

    • Humidity Management

    • Placement

VFD’s Emerging Technology

  • Manage power output to reduce peak loading and consumption

  • Reduce loading and inrush increases motor life

  • Vacuum centres, dryers, pumps


Dryer applications l.jpg

Dryer Applications


Slide10 l.jpg

  • Spot Free Rinse Systems

    • Opportunities for waste water use

      • Irrigation

      • Weep Systems

      • Washrooms

    • Challenges unique to the Canadian Market

      • Performance is temperature sensitive

  • Weep Systems

    • Approaches

      • Recapture weep water and re-circulate, heat with glycol loop

    • Savings Potential

      • 1 bay at 1gpm 16hrs/day for 5 months uses 144,000 gallons /yr @$.00395/gal or $1.50 M3 = Approx $570.00/ bay per year.
