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
slide10

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.
