Car wash water recycling in Australia has gained momentum in recent years due to the continuing drought conditions. The trend is to sustainable use of resources and water efficiency will soon become a licencing factor for all car washes regardless of the level of current water supplies. Significant increases in water costs make recycling an attractive option for purely economic reasons.

The quality of the recycled water is the most important factor when considering systems. It is recommended that water is only recovered from the automatic bays and that there is a disinfection cycle included at the end of the recycling process to ensure bacteria control. The automatic equipment is very sensitive to particle size, particularly the touchless washes, and your recycling system must be able to achieve the required standard. In addition, the site specific environment needs to be analysed - soil type and volume of dirt at your wash, and what types of detergents are used.
