Westmatic Keeps Fleet Washing "Clean and Green"

If you think that you are saving money by having your fleet washed by hand, you may want to read this article.  Not only are you not saving money, but you are also using excess amounts of water as well as polluting your city's water supply.  Few people realize the harmful effects the runoff wastewater from washing your vehicle causes.  The wastewater that "runs-off" dirty vehicles contains gasoline, oil and residue from exhaust fumes, as well as harsh detergents from the soap being used.[1]  Once it leaves your wash bay, it travels untreated into storm drains and eventually into rivers, streams, creeks and wetlands where it poisons aquatic life and causes harm to ecosystems.[1]

Professional vehicle wash systems provide a simple and easy fix to this issue.  Due to the Clean Water Act, professional vehicle washes are required to treat their wastewater in order to protect the environment.[2]  A Westmatic bus wash, truck wash or train wash system provides several environmentally friendly water solutions, including water recycling and advanced water purification.  Westmatic's proven water recycling systems enable water reclamation of up to 85%.  In order to purify the 15% of the wastewater not recycled, the answer is Westmatic's world patented "Renaren" water purification system.  Without any chemical additives in the process, wastewater can reach a purification level of 99%.  Once water leaves the Renaren system, the water is clean and safe to proceed out into the sewage system.

In terms of saving cash, the high-pressure nozzles and pumps within Westmatic bus washes, truck washes or train washes are designed to deliver as little water as possible at the needed pressure in order to provide clean wash results.  Furthermore, with a water recycling system, you can re-use 85% of the water used to wash one vehicle to wash the next, greatly reducing sewer impact fees as well as monthly water bills.

Conserving the world's natural resources is imperative to living in a clean and safe environment.    Serious pollution and harm can be avoided simply by using automatic bus washes, truck washes, and train washes. Westmatic takes conserving the environment very seriously.  Our systems use less water, electricity and detergent than any of our competitors, thus making Westmatic the most efficient vehicle wash system on the market.  We can provide your company with systems that will save you money and reduce your ecological footprint.  Do your part in keeping the environment Clean and Green by washing your fleet professionally with a Westmatic bus wash, truck wash, or train wash system.
