The Car Wash Water Saving Scheme plays a major role in ensuring the car wash industry can continue to operate in times of drought and water restrictions.
Australia is the second driest continent and at the same time is amongst the highest per capita users of water in the world and it is, therefore, little wonder water restrictions are almost a way of life for the nation’s communities.
Made up of businesses that rely on the use of valuable water, the car wash industry faces daily struggle to convince regulators of the water saving attributes of using a commercial car wash.
The Water Rating Scheme, with its clever use of the internationally recognised five-star rating, sends messages to Government regulators and the community alike that commercial car washing is environmentally conscious and striving to ensure the best possible use of valuable drinking water supplies.
The Objectives of the Water Saver Rating Scheme
- Help protect the viability of the car wash industry in times of water shortages through the creation of responsible water standards
- Drive the market to develop cost-efficient technologies to support the needs of the car wash industry
- Reduce the volume of potable (drinkable) water used at commercial car washes by promoting efficient water use and practices
- Educate consumers to make informed decisions about commercial car washes based on an increased understanding of the water efficiency of commercial car washes
