MANTECA, Calif. — With water concerns and drought in California, a carwash that is able to reclaim 97 percent of its water, like Clean Drop Car Wash has done, is a step ahead, according to the Manteca Bulletin.          

The article explained the process that allows water to be recycled at such a high rate: “Water carrying rich material washes over a series of channels, and the heavier particles settle on the bottom — sending the water and the lighter, non-precious mixture back out of the end into a returning pool where it can be recycled again.”

The owner of the wash, Hercules Vourakis, wants to use as little water as possible, while providing customers with a great carwash. “When you drive up and select your wash there isn’t the typical up sell  ... The machine knows which car you are in line and it goes from there,” said Vourakis. He continued that the wash can be a one person operation.

The wash also has free vacuum terminals, and 160-horsepower fans that dry your car after the wash.
