Today, many municipalities now require some form of a reclamation system prior to issuing a permit. Adding reclamation to a site results in less discharge to sewers and can avoid expensive impact fees and reduce Sewer Availability Charges (SAC) and Water Availability Charges (WAC) by 50 percent or more.
Water reclamation in car wash installations has become more popular due to the economic and environmental benefits. By using ozone as a disinfectant in the water, harmful microbiological pathogens, such as bacteria, viruses, and even odors can easily be removed. Cleaning and disinfecting the water allows it to be recycled more efficiently, leading to improved economic and environmental performance.
Also important, disinfecting water with ozone offers significant benefits compared to chemical solutions, such as chlorine. Ozone improves the quality of water, is chemical-free and the body of the vehicle (paint and chrome) are resistant to ozone.
