Researching options for producing additional revenue out of the property. I understand reclaim isn't worth it for selfserve bays because of too many variables. I'm envisioning adding a laundromat with reclaim of the wash water and was interested in the possibility of whether the reclaim from the laundry could be used to feed the earlier stages of a self serve bay.

Thoughts from anybody with knowledge on reclaim?

*edit, just read reclaim from the laundromat to the wash, I believe it could be done, you'd run into issues with lack of water on busy days I'd assume.

I'm very skeptical about reclaimed water in general and I can see several problems, like lint creating issues for you.

Anything self service is tougher to reclaim I have read ... because of less control over what chemicals etc goes into their sewer drains. I would think that a full service laundry or automatic car wash would have a better chance.

Will you encounter more issues with using reclaimed water for a laundry mat. like lint, detergent residue on cloths, & customers may get skin rash clothing they wear being washed in reclaimed water?

I believe he is wanting to use the reclaimed laundromat water in the car wash, not the laundromat.
