    Now is the time to file police reports against Jim Lewis Car Wash Canopies

    Unless he is in your area local cops likely won't do anything. You could try your state attorney General Fraud unit or if mail was used at all Postal Inspector fraud unit.

    60 Ft Peco Tunnel

    IMO spot free for a tunnel is a waste of $ because there will likely be moisture trapped in rain Channels and behind moldings and SF won't eliminate issue of spotting from this.

    Finally a credit card reader that accepts tap and chip cards

    Can't say I know what your issue is but I have 12 in service. * have been in service since I tool over the location 20+ years ago and the other 4 I added to Vacs a few years ago. So far I can't recall one failing. Since I am just outside Chicago the environment is brutal.

    The next big thing for Self Service bays?

    I guess f you need to conserve room but I think it more convenient to be able to just walk all the way round the bike and I could see a lot of splash back off the back wall.

    FRP wall panels

    Had a contractor do this in a Tunnel after some damage. Been 6 years and so far so good. I know car washes generally drill and use rivets but not sure adhesive is a bad idea.

    We just got graphene at our wash. How does it work?

    With any luck it will boost your bottom line. I really do not know how much attraction it holds for the general population or more importantly your customer base.

    Finally a credit card reader that accepts tap and chip cards

    IMO the LED 7 Timer provides all the information the credit card user would want. It displays a running count as well as total at the end.

    Lexus vs Car wash

    Check Owner Manual for that year make and model with instructions for using Automatic Car Washes. Many models these days instruct to fold mirrors. If it says that and Owner did not Fold I deny claim for any issue. Next watch cars go thru and if see if wrap shaft is too close to cover. Plus...

    Hydrominder Screens on inlet?

    To clean without damage. 1. Don't remove the screen. Unscrew where the 3/8" fitting goes in to the valve and then blow out in direction opposite to water flow then screw back in. 2. If you must remove screen to try without damages still unscrew at valve and use a small bolt or top of pen to...

    The system is like a moving sidewalk at an airport or an escalator. The equipment cannot make cars get closer together or further apart. You need to get cameras ASAP Too many variables - I have seen the following happen - Rear Car in Drive, Lead car in reverse., Lead car stops at exit etc.

    JE Adams Coin Deposit Air Machine "No Air Pressure"

    You can try a compressor from Harbor freight BUT. 1. Make sure it will fit cabinet. 2. Make sure it is "Oilless" 3. You can easily adapt any fittings to fit a 1/4" hose. I don't know how much use your until gets but if you think about it they only run for 4 minutes at a time...
