Hydro Engineering Inc has made breakthroughs in "green" water technology. Their patented technology has revolutionized the way construction companies, auto dealers, and government entities wash their equipment by eliminating delays and waste. The instant car wash only requires electric power and water for operation, and can be placed on any surface. It does not even require a connection to a sewer. All the collected wash water is recycled through the Hydrokleen filtration system where it is then processed back to the Hydroblaster pressure washer. A huge advantage of the car wash system is that it can be either permanent or allow for a mobile wash. If you determine that the instant car wash needs to be relocated, it can be done with no construction involved. All along the way, making water conservation and going green easy.
Here is how the instant car wash system works:
The vehicle or equipment is driven up onto the Hydropad wash rack. The Hydropad wash racks http://www.hydroblaster.com/HydropadPortableWashRack.htm have an impervious top that slopes to a side gutter or trough. As the wash water and debris lands on the top surface of the Hydropad, troughs guide the collected water and debris to the side gutter. At one end of the gutter is a pump. As the water is collected, the pump in the gutter pumps the collected water to the Hydrokleen recycling system where solids, hydrocarbons, metals and organics are removed. The filtered water has been cleaned and is ready for reuse in the car or equipment wash process. The recycled water is sent to a wash brush used in cleaning the vehicle. A Hydroblaster pressure washer connected to fresh water is used to rinse the recycled water from the car. This adds water to the systems that is lost in the wash process due to evaporation.
Water from washing applications cannot flow onto the ground as this violates the Clean Water Act. Jeff Hill, the parts and service director at Folsom Lake Toyota says "Like many car dealers we found it hard to wash our cars and meet the rules imposed by the EPA’s Clean Water Act. Like any environmentally aware business in California we want to comply with every aspect of the EPA laws and searching an answer to our problem led us to Hydro Engineering Inc. It’s such a simple concept pull your car or truck onto the Hydropads, wash it, rinse it off and you are done. It only takes 5 minutes to completely wash a car with this system. The two swiveling booms hold the washing brush and rinsing gun hoses just like a self serve car wash."
