All details at a glance

In car wash systems, improving water use efficiency benefits the bottom line, saves energy, and creates a more sustainable operation.

Well-maintained car wash facilities typically use from 15-30 gallons per vehicle (gpv) without recycling wash water. Automatic systems with water reclamation and filtration reduce new water usage by utilizing sequenced holding tanks and reintroducing the filtered water back into the system. Installing a Forsta industrial water filter after the car wash system’s settling tank provides a comprehensive solution; reducing the quantity of water used and improving water quality.

Forsta industrial water filters can transform an open system to recycle water or can easily be integrated into an existing closed-loop system. Our self-cleaning filters will protect spray nozzles and help to avoid unnecessary shutdowns. In comparison to other filter technologies self-cleaning water filters are more cost-effective, automatic, produce less wastewater, and will not suspend primary system flow during the automatic cleaning cycle.

Forsta self-cleaning water filters operate on existing water pressure and use as little as two gallons per backwash. Due to the stapling effect of fibers on wire mesh, car wash water sources usually require wedge wire screen elements.
