Car Wash Bays.

The Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality has asked all Car Wash Bay’s to use 60% recycled water.

During this time of water shortage, this is how Waterfirst can help you:


What is bio-remediation treatment process for car wash bay’s?

All car wash water can be treated and reused back into the wash bay water or into surrounding gardens. The bio-remediation treatment process breaks down the organic and inorganic substances in the car wash soaps and car oils etc., leaving the water clean and ready for reuse.

“Bioremediation is a waste management technique that involves the use of organisms to remove or neutralize pollutants from a contaminated site.” According to the EPA, Bioremediation is a “treatment that uses naturally occurring organisms to break down hazardous substances into less toxic or non-toxic substances.”


How does bio-remediation work?

Bioremediation works by providing these pollution-eating organisms with fertilizer, oxygen, and other conditions that encourage their rapid growth. These organisms would then be able to break down the organic pollutant at a correspondingly faster rate. In fact, bioremediation is often used to help clean up oil spills. It is a naturally occurring process where very small living organisms called microbes, clean up contaminated soil, ground water and surface. Bioremediation stimulates the growth of certain microbes that use contaminants as a source of food and energy.



What are the benefits of using a bio-remediation system?

The biggest benefit from using bioremediation processes is its contribution to the environment. Bioremediation uses nature to fix nature. Properly applied by knowledgeable people using specialized equipment designed for bioremediation, this is the safest and least invasive soil and groundwater clean-up available.
