Clean Planet Uses Water Management Technology to Conserve Water 

Developed through industry and university research, Clean Planet Car Wash uses Water Management Technology (WMT), a series of water-saving steps that provide a safe and thorough car wash while using a fraction of the water used at home or by non-WMT carwashes.
 
  • State-of-the-art water reclamation system
  • High-pressure nozzles mix 50% air with water to create pressure without water volume
  • Special WMT approved water pumps designed to minimize water flow

Did you know…?
A 10-minute home car wash using a 5/8" garden hose running at 50 psi uses approximately 14 to 18 gallons of water per minute, or 140 to 180 gallons of water per car?* 
Clean Planet Car Wash cleans a car in minutes, using as little as 25 gallons of water per wash!

Compare that to…
  • A washing machine at top water level uses 60 gallons of water
  • A 10-minute shower uses 25 to 50 gallons of water per day
  • A drippy faucet wastes 25 to 30 gallons of water per day
  • Flushing toilets use 5 to 7 gallons of water per day
  • Brushing your teeth uses about 2 gallons of water per day

Fun Facts:
  • Few industries using water as a resource are as attentive to and careful about water management as a cutting-edge car wash like Clean Planet.
  • Car washes provide thousands of jobs in the Puget Sound Region, and significantly contribute to its tax base.
  • An automobile is most likely the second most valuable asset a family has and keeping it clean extends the life of the vehicle.

Maintaining Water Quality in the Car Wash Industry 
The Seattle Storm Water Grading and Drainage Control Code lists unregulated car washing as #2 in the eight high­risk pollution-generating activities. That's why bringing your vehicle into Clean Planet Car Wash is not only better for the environment, but our professional technicians are better equipped to maintain your vehicle!
