Averge water consumption per car wash type, gallons
For mobile car wash operators, Optima Steamer can reduce water consumption by 95%, cleaning a car using as little as one gallon of water. Not only will its steam reduce your water consumption and water cost, it will also reduce the equipment and space necessary to contain water. In the result, the whole weight reduction will greatly reduce vehicle fuel consumption. While an operator of traditional pressure washers carries over 250 gallons of water (over 2,085lbs) and a recovery tank, a user of Optima Steamer needs no more than 20 gallons of water for all day use with no recovery tank!
Reduce Chemical Use
The steam of Optima Steamer allows a mobile wash operator to drastically reduce their chemical consumption. In fact, it eliminates the need for window cleaning chemicals, soaps, detergent and other abrasive and harmful compounds. With a moisture control function, Optima Steamer can use wet or dry steam. The steam will break down dirt and grime easily and sanitize any surface without chemical, and the gentle yet powerful steam pressure will lift them up from the surface of a vehicle. The temperature of steam can be easily controlled by the distance a user hold it from the surface, ensuring no damage to surface, especially paint and clear coats!
Eliminate Waste Water Runoff
Untreated wastewater disposal to ground soil and storm drains impacts the environment. The equipment required for containing wastewater and the cost to maintain it decreases productivity and profit. Using Optima Steamer, a mobile wash operator can wash and clean without producing waste-water. Eliminating the need for a wastewater reclamation mat and containment system decreases wash time per car and increases your earning potential.
Under the Clean Water Act, the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) implemented pollution control programs such as setting wastewater standards for many industries. EPA also set water quality standards for all contaminants in surface waters. The Clean Water Act made it “unlawful to discharge any pollutant from a point source into navigable waters, unless a permit is obtained.” When in violation, fines may be $20,000 per day. Using Optima Steamer, you will never generate wastewater runoff. We have helped thousands of customers to bypass permits and fines and to get ahead by making their business more flexible and eco-friendly.
