Legends recycles 95% of our water!
At Legends Car Wash, most water is reclaimed through the baffling/filtration system while the overflow is safely discharged into sanitary treatment facilities. This helps to keep our rivers, and streams clean. Legends Car Wash promotes water conservation and will never contribute to unnecessary water demands on our local community.
Legends uses only Eco-Conscious, Biodegradable and Non-Toxic products. Rags and sponges used in driveway washes become impregnated with dirt and grit that can scratch vehicle surfaces; meanwhile, home garden hoses lack enough pressure to remove all soap film, letting it 'bake' into the finish and damage the paint. That's why most manufacturers recommend the same methods we use at Legends Car Wash.
All wash water is captured and returned to the wash process after a state of the art filtering and purification process. On average, Legends state-of-the-art automatic car washes use only 30-45 gallons of fresh water per vehicle ... only about a third of the 80-140 gallon average for the typical home driveway wash.
Unfortunately, charity 'parking lot' washes are a leading contributor to wasteful water usage and to the pollution of rivers and streams from storm drain runoff; but fortunately, Legends Car Wash offers easy and lucrative alternative fund-raising programs.
Reclaim water is water that is recovered and treated to make it acceptable for use in the wash portion of the total wash & rinse process. It is not intended to be used for drinking or cooking. Reclaimed water is used as the muscle to remove the solids from the vehicle, followed by a fresh-water spot-free final rinse. Using reclaimed water promotes water conservation by re-using nearly 95% of the water used in a car wash. In some parts of the country water is a precious commodity. Droughts cause city officials to ban drive way washing, lawn watering, and car wash facilities can also be closed.
The spot-free final rinse comes from fresh water that has had 90% of all minerals removed through a process called reverse osmosis. The result is a clean drying of the vehicle with no water spotting. If you've ever had small white spotting on your glass or paint, you were probably using hard water that was not treated through reverse osmosis.
