Water recycling in car wash installations is rapidly becoming common place due to the benefits that are gained both economically and environmentally. However there is a danger of microbiological pathogens in the water causing problems.
By treating the water with ozone, it is possible to overcome problems associated with harmful microbiological pathogens. By using ozone as a disinfectant for the water, you kill off all fungi, bacteria and viruses that can cause problem. This allows for the water to be recycled more efficiently, leading to improved economic and environmental performance. While ozone is not the only treatment that can improve the quality of water, it is the most suitable for car wash installations since, unlike chemical solutions such as chlorine, ozone does not have any negative effects on the paint and chrome of the car bodywork.
