If you don't already have one , there are a number of great reasons to implement a water reclamation program. Some states or counties have regulations that require the use of a reclaim system, and they are a great way to save a lot of money on your water and sewer regardless of where you are. Reclaim systems also make your wash eco-friendly, which can help boost both the perceived quality and value of your wash. Low quality reclaim water can create issues for washes that are currently using or considering reclaim systems. When your reclaim system is optimized, it produces high quality water, so the quality of your wash will not be affected. However, if there is an issue with your reclaim system, there will be some noticeable wash quality issues. Here are some of the most common reclaim water quality issues, and tips to resolve them: 1. Slime This is the black, goo-like substance that can coat the inside of your wash. Slime can be caused by multiple things, including non-reclaim compatible products, reclaim water pH balance, or incorrect products going into reclaim. Slime can be of organic or inorganic origin, or both. You can solve this problem by working with a qualified vehicle care specialist.
