The Environmental Benefits of Washing Your Car at Water Works

Looking for a more earth-friendly way to clean your car? You’ve found it.

When you take your car to Water Works automatic car wash, the runoff produced is subject to wastewater laws and treated at the local sewage-treatment plant, where it is filtered and cleaned. The leftover gunk is disposed of properly.

When you wash your car in your driveway, the dirty water, tinged with traces of motor oil, antifreeze and gasoline that your car has picked up on the road, runs down the driveway and into storm drains, which empty into local rivers and creeks. This tainted runoff can affect animal and plant life in the smaller waterways.

Also, Water Works automatic car wash utilizes the power of water pressure, not water volume, to get your car squeaky clean in minutes. At home with a regular garden hose, you can go through 30 gallons of water in about 4 minutes.

So give yourself a much-needed break and let Water Works do the cleaning.
