Nashville, Tennessee (PRWEB) April 19, 2013
Super Speed Wash, an exterior express carwash with 10 locations throughout Middle Tennessee, is offering an Earth Day special on Monday, April 22.
To highlight the carwash company's commitment to sustainability and environmental stewardship, Super Speed Wash is offering its Total Protection Car Wash for only $9.00 -- a savings of $3.00 off the regular price of $12.00.
"We think this is another great opportunity to highlight how and why washing your car at one of our facilities is far better for the environment than washing your car in your driveway or parking lot at home," said Super Speed Wash CEO Ryan Tyrrell.
"Most people don't realize the negative environmental impact of washing their cars at home," he added.
Unlike household wastewater that enters sewers or septic systems and undergoes treatment before it is discharged into the environment, what runs off from your car goes right into storm drains. These storm drains feed into rivers, streams, creeks and wetlands where runoff can poison marine life and wreak other ecosystem havoc. The water that enters the storm drains from home car washing is loaded with a nasty mix of gasoline, oil and exhaust residues -- as well as the harsh chemicals being used for the washing itself.
Conversely, at Super Speed Wash all rinse water is treated before it is discharged back into the sewer. Further, Super Speed Wash uses computer controlled systems and high-pressure nozzles and pumps that minimize water usage. Super Speed Wash averages about 35 gallons of water usage per vehicle, which is 10 gallons less than the industry average and as much as 90% less water used in typical driveway washing.
Beyond water treatment, Super Speed Wash is committed to protecting the environment in multiple ways:
The premium soaps, polishes, waxes and tire shine used at Super Speed Wash are free of phosphates, butyls, APEs, NPEs and hydroflouric acid.
Super Speed Wash's computer-operated tunnel systems, by tailoring each wash to each car, use only the water each car requires, resulting in as much as a 90% reduction in water use (versus driveway and parking-lot car washing). Super Speed Wash recaptures the water that other reverse-osmosis rinse systems typically waste — up to 1500 gallons per day, per location.
Waste water from Super Speed Wash's tunnels enters a 3-step separation process to remove contaminants before that water enters the sewer system; and ultimately our rivers and lakes. (Water from driveway and parking-lot washing goes directly into rivers, streams, and lakes.)
Super Speed Wash has invested heavily in Variable Frequency Drives to conserve energy through computer management of high-powered motors. The company has also replaced power-hungry lighting fixtures with more efficient florescent and LED fixtures.
As responsible community members, the company reduces nighttime light pollution. After closing down each evening, the washes use only minimal exterior lighting (primarily for security purposes).
Super Speed Wash features recycling bins at all locations — encouraging customers to contribute cans, bottles and papers from their cars.
