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.

Hello, recently completed a utility review for Touchless Carwash in San Diego, CA. and found over $10,000 in utility cost saving. The review doesn't change your utility provider, just reviews your current utility and provide results where your overpaying, many businesses don't realize you can go back at leas 3 years to find money back on your utilities. The utility review is free. Please let me know if your interested in one for your business.
