Are you running outdated car wash equipment at your vehicle wash business?

Are you thinking of upgrading your old car wash equipment but worried about the cost of purchasing a new system? Though the cost of purchasing new car wash machines can be daunting, trying to maintain old car wash equipment may end up costing thousands due to operating costs.  Below we outlined the pros and cons of updating versus keeping your old equipment.

Old car wash equipment versus new equipment

New car wash technology is more cost effective and more efficient.

Today’s car wash technology moves at a faster pace than ever before. When we know better, we do better.  Innovative, new car wash technology is more streamlined and efficient. Here’s a few ways that the use of technology makes car wash equipment more cost effective and efficient:

  • The high-pressure nozzles work quickly and use less water,
  • Computer-controlled systems efficiently control the amount of water your car wash uses per vehicle, and
  • Reclaimed and recycled water systems save water and dollars.

Water waste

If your car wash equipment is aging, you could be drowning in problems!

Many drought-stricken areas have implemented strict water conservation rules in an attempt to save water.

Inefficient systems can waste litres of water per vehicle, putting a strain on water consumption and forcing many car washes to work on reduced hours or close to meet the area guidelines on usage.

Newer car wash systems implement reclaimed water programs, reducing waste and increasing efficiency.

Updating your actually equipment saves money

New technology has built-in efficiency and conservation practices that old equipment can’t complete with.

Old systems are water leaches, sucking water reserves and causing costly repairs due to tired and outdated mechanics. They spill and waste litres of water, crank up water bills and struggling parts use more energy.

Though new equipment is an investment upfront, it will pay off over time with reduced bills and lower maintenance costs.
