Caliber is committed to protecting our environment and limiting the usage of water per wash.
Being eco-friendly and having zero impact on the environment is a top priority at Caliber Car Wash. All water at all locations is filtered, cleaned, and reused. Using a water reclamation system, we are able to only use 30 gallons of water per car wash. The average water used when washing a car at home or in a self-service car wash is over 140 gallons. Furthermore, 100% of all of our cleaning chemicals are completely biodegradable and environmentally friendly.
Water from our car wash is collected in reclaim tanks. The water is treated with multiple processes before being sent back into the system. First, a carbon filter system is used to eliminate particles in the water, next an Ultraviolet Light process is used to kill any harmful or unwanted bacteria, last an Ozone Treatment system is used to completely disinfect the water. Once the water has been recycled 3 times, it is released into an oil/water separator, which is its last stop prior to being released into the municipalities sewer system. This system ensures that we are not releasing any harmful contaminates into the sewer system, ground water, or retention ponds.
When you wash at home, not only do you use a lot more water, but all of the contaminants you wash off of your vehicle flow directly into the public storm drain system. This can negatively affect this system by introducing substances such as oil, brake residue, antifreeze, coolant, grease, rust, or anything else off the road you may have inadvertently driven through down into this system. All of these contaminates are greatly reduced when using Caliber Car Wash.
