The Environmental Protection Agency recommends that you not wash your vehicle in your driveway and states, “Alternatively, go to a commercial Car Wash that uses water efficiently and disposes of runoff properly.”
That’s because the Clean Water Act requires our car wash to send wastewater to treatment plants where it’s treated before being released into the environment. When washing at home, however, wastewater can reach sensitive wetlands, water supplies and stormwater drains.
Studies show that the average garden hose used to wash a car at home uses 10 gallons of water per minute. Compared to the 2.3 gallons per minute used by our high-pressure self-serve sprayers, this difference can really add up. Compare how much water is saved using Surf N’ Suds Car Wash.
Also, our express tunnel wash can save more than 50 gallons of water per wash compared to your typical car wash automatic or self-serve.
