Car & Lorry Wash

Automatic vehicle wash systems use far less water than hand washing because they are designed to recycle over 75% of the water for each vehicle.

That is great for the environment but less so for water quality because all the contaminants get more concentrated.

The dirt on our cars is a mixture of dirt and bird droppings and can contain a variety of bacteria, normally disinfectants are automatically dosed to ensure these bacteria do not increase to dangerous levels.

Regular checks on bacteria levels is an essential measure to monitor that the system is operating safely.

These tests include a general bacteria count plus a specific test for legionella. Legionella testing is essential due to the enormous amount of aerosol produced during the cleaning process.

Advice on Taking the Sample

Collect the sample from the water storage tank prior to any chemical dosing point, If the disinfectant is not dosed continuously but instead shot dosed every few days – take the sample just before the system is scheduled to dose.
