    Is anyone out there using C K Enterprises soap

    I use it on a touch free automatic and self service bays. It does a great job cleaning. They have the best triple foam wax I’ve found. Love the SCUBA system. It’s very convenient and easy to use.

    Ryko Bi-Fold Window Reinstall

    (I don't know what these doors are. I'm using what I learned on a hardtop Jeep window with a rubber frame) Put a nylon cord/rope into the rubber gasket, all the way around. Then put the window into place. Pull the cord out toward you to pull the gasket out around the window. JPRB

    wire mesh inlet strainer

    I'd try Dultmeier. With their Ag/Lawn divisions, they should have something! JPRB

    Depositing Quarters

    Get a coin scale if you have all quarters, and don't need to sort coins. They are as accurate at counter, and much quicker. I've never paid money to deposit my money. I'd find another bank.

    High Pressure Floats for Wash Tank

    Mep, I have one large (50gal ?) floor tank that feeds a Cat 3535. I remember replacing that float twice in 20 years. I have several smaller (20-30 gal) tanks, both stand & floor mounted for Automatic & Self service pumps. The pump stands valves have to be replaced more often. The pump...

    High Pressure Floats for Wash Tank

    I think having the water storage tank mounted on the pump stand is a big factor in quick failures of valves. I have both stand and floor mounted tanks. The valves in the floor mounted tanks last much longer, probably due to much less vibration. I use mostly Walters, and have a couple of Jobe...

    Lettering for vinyl door

    I have seen some LED "OPEN" signs like they use at a bank drive thru. I have vinyl doors, also, (with no signs on them) and I think the lighted signs over the door would be more noticeable. Also, you'd have the ability to turn them off when a bay was down for service...

    Medoco Locks

    I use powdered graphite to keep locks lubricated. Works great. Not sure it will free up a stuck lock though. JPRB

    Pay by phone

    I have seen WashCard's setup at the show this year. It's a pretty simple setup. I like the idea of it, but I'm not sure how much it would actually get used. Is the Pay-by-phone being used by a lot of people for other services? I'd be interested in others' opinions. JPRB

    Help delaying car from entering till dryers shut off.

    We used a relay on the dryer contactor to hold the "wash busy" signal from the car wash to the paystation. It clears/goes off when the dryer shuts off (contactor shuts off).

    Bad idea to have 2 IBA machines side by side with different wash package options?

    I have two Soft Gloss machines side by side. One has the color wave, and a dryer ($5,7,9,12). The other does not ($5,6,7,9). I have a top wash on with the color wave & dryer at $12.00. Both washes have the same $9.00 wash. The $7.00 washes are similar, with the dryer added to the machine...
