Recycle, Reuse

We are proud to be part of the WaterSavers® Program. Learn more here

We recycle the water used in the car wash process through a state-of-the-art Pur-Water™ Recovery System. It uses less than 35 gallons of fresh water per wash. And, once it is applied, it too is recycled.

Did you know?

Washing your car in your driveway can use as much as 120-180 gallons of water. Car washes that do not reclaim their water use up to 100 gallons of water for a typical sedan.

Free of Pollutants

In our EPA-compliant reclaim process, BlueWave captures and non- hydrologically disposes of virtually all contaminants that come off the car, as well as the soaps and waxes that it uses (which are biodegradable to start with).

Washing at Home

Did you know?

Home car washing, especially on pavement, causes harm to local waterways. Even with biodegradable soap or no soap, rinsing your car in the driveway flushes engine and brake residue, oil, grease, gasoline, antifreeze, asphalt, and more into the gutters that ends up in our streams, rivers, and lakes.

Why It’s Good To Wash Your Car Regularly

Your car is made of metal, and the only thing preventing the metal from corroding is paint. A polyurethane enamel layer 1/1000 of an inch thick protects the paint. What should protect this is a layer of wax or soon it will noticeably start succumbing to the elements. Learn more about our special protectants >

Ultra Violet Rays. Just like your own skin, the painted surfaces of your car are vulnerable to the deleterious effects of sunlight unless they are waxed regularly with a UV-absorbent wax that blocks the UV rays from directly attacking the paint like BlueWave’s Triple Polish.

Acid Rain. The rain, snow, ice, and mist in storms that blow through any industrialized region contain sulfur dioxide and nitrogen oxides. Naturally occurring precipitation that contains these pollutants is called “acid rain”. The effect of acid rain causes permanently etched areas and is most noticeable on dark colored vehicles. Frequent washing, drying, and covering of the vehicle are the best methods to minimize acid rain damage.

Debris. Your car’s finish suffers from everyday debris like bird droppings, insect splatter, tree sap,
road oils and other highway residue, brake dust, and gas stains. They become harder to remove if left on the car.

The Obvious. Dirt, sand, and mud. There is little else that is more abrasive that will ever stick to your car than these three forms of earth itself.
