Water Treatment

PurWater North
North Highlands, California

Pur-Water Recovery System has been an industry-leading provider of water treatment solutions for the professional car wash industry for over 25 years.

What’s New/Best Seller • The PurWater™ Recovery System.

Advantages/Features • The self-purging filter technology is a totally physical process — eliminating the need and ongoing expense of bags or disposable filters, while consistently providing clean/odor-free high-quality 5-micron water. A programmable logic controller with variable frequency drive provides efficient, cost-effective operation. The system integrates ozone odor control technology — effectively eliminating bacteria growth, the source of offensive odor. Several models are available and can easily be incorporated into full-serve tunnel, express tunnel, in-bay friction, and touch-free wash applications. Systems come pre-wired/pre-plumbed, and the minimal 16” X 48” footprint makes it perfect for retrofit installations.

Delivery/Installation • Orders ship in five-to-six days. Professional installation by national network of factory trained and authorized distributors.
