Carwash Connection: Reuse versus reclaim

AKRON, Ohio — What’s the difference between these two systems?

AKRON, Ohio — In this week’s video, Editorial Director Rich DiPaolo delves into the differences between water reuse and water reclaim systems.

Making the commitment to add or replace equipment can be influenced by several factors. Many carwash operators are automating to reduce the cost of labor. Some update equipment to eliminate down time and the expense of ongoing repairs of old worn-out equipment. Others re-equip to keep up with technology and the competition. Some choose to add new equipment to help regain lost customers or offer additional services. For all these reasons and more, adding new equipment could be your path to continued success.
