Home Car Washing Wastes Water and Leads to Water Pollution

Most people who wash their cars at home don’t realize where the contaminated water goes or how much is wasted. Home car washing releases contaminated water directly into the environment or into storm drains intended for rainwater. This causes pollution in our rivers, lakes and streams. Also, engineering studies show that a 5/8″ hose running at 50 pounds per square inch uses 10 gallons of water per minute compared to washing your car at a self-serve car wash for only 11.1 gallons.

Consider the alternatives of professional car washing:

-Average flow rate wash and rinse: 3GPM (gallons per minute)
-Average flow rate per-soak foaming brush and tire & engine cleaning: 0.6 GPM
-Average time for washing and rinsing vehicle: 2.6 minutes
-Average time for pre-soak, foaming brush and tire & engine: 5.3 minutes
-Average water used for wash and rise: 7.9 gallons
-Average water used for others: 3.2 gallons

Professional Car Washes Use Water Safely and Efficiently

The Clean Water Act requires professional car washes to pipe their dirty water to water treatment facilities or into state-approved drainage facilities designed to protect the environment. Automatic and self-serve car washes also use water efficient equipment such as computer controlled systems and high-pressure nozzles and pumps, allowing them to clean cars thoroughly while conserving water.
