3 Makings of a WaterSaver

By August 28, 2018 August 27th, 2019 No Comments

During the summer in San Antonio, our water restrictions can get pretty harsh. The dry months combined with the intense heat dries the water up fast. These restrictions put in place mean that car washes now must follow different standards. In 1997, the Southwest Car Wash Association partnered with the San Antonio Water System to create new standards for car washing facilities. The program is called the Certified Car Wash Program. At Bee Clean in San Antonio , we follow these standards because we care about our community and the environment! In addition, we go above and beyond and are a “WaterSaver” certified car wash company by the ICA and SCWA.

What does it mean to be a WaterSaver?

We have measurable savings. We can track all of the water that we save in our car wash process. The water is recycled in the first rinses of the car then mixed with detergent. At Bee Clean, over 80% of the water used to wash vehicles is captured, cleaned, and recycled using reclamation systems.

We protect Water Quality. We have levels that control and the transfer of water from wash to rinse. The reclamation systems accomplish it. We also use irrigation systems to water our lawns. The recycled water we use for the landscaping is 100% safe for the environment!

We give back. Those in the WaterSaver program not only give back to the environment but to the community as well. We frequently participate in many school fundraisers, have donated money to the St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital, and have given away free car washes for teachers and first responders during their special celebration weeks.

By recycling this water, we are not just following standards; we are helping our community. Being in a drought can be very serious for the environment and the city. That is why it is important to save water as much as you can. As a car washing company, we are dedicated to our customers, community, and the environment. We are proud of our commitment to the clean, green environment. So when you stop in today to one of our five locations you can leave knowing you washed at the right place!
