|Bus Tour visits two Calgary area carwashes
Canadian Carwash Association’s (CCA) third annual CARWACS Carwash Tour took place as part of CARWACS Calgary last week. Buses toured two CCA member carwash sites as carwash operators enjoyed a morning of networking, interactive site tours followed by lunch.
The first site was a refreshed Husky Energy Inc carwash that was renovated in July 2018 and has the new generation Mark VII Softwash XT machine. The new technology enhances wash quality, customer satisfaction and efficiency. This machine has the lowest operating cost in the industry in terms of water, chemical and electrical consumption. This site also uses an Exacta POS system, PurClean RO system and ZEP chemicals.
The second location was the first of the Dreams Eco Xpress Car Wash group. It opened on July 18th, 2018 and was designed as an Express Car Wash facility consisting of a 100’ express conveyorized exterior tunnel car wash and 6 free (with purchase) vacuum stalls. Vacuum stalls are located under a canopy to protect from environmental factors. The site also includes 2 mat wash stations (Rhino-Mat) and air spray hoses.
The tunnel is equipped with Peco equipment and was supplied and installed by PD McLaren consisting of both soft foam and high pressure. Hamilton pay stations great customers as they arrive and allow for credit, debit, tap, apple pay, cash, QR Codes, number codes and RFID entry. The equipment also includes water recycling, with a goal of recycling 50-60% of the water.
All cleaning solutions are dispensed through the Zep Assure System and they co-brand with AmorAll and Rain-X products.
