Winter is coming, and it’s time to prepare for the freezing temperatures. There are various steps to be taken to winterize your car wash. The following is a list of some of the things you should check to get your car wash ready for the cold winter months.
Car Wash Weep system: Make sure your weep system is working properly. Check the controls, be it a weep mizer or thermostat, to make sure it’s reading the temperature correctly and sending power to the weep solenoid. Also check the normally open solenoid to make sure it functions properly, and check to make sure your guns are allowing adequate weep water through.
Anti-freeze detergent: If you use anti-freeze detergent for your foam brush and/or triple foam systems, make sure you have chemical on hand before the temperature drops below freezing. Don’t forget to make sure you’re using the appropriate Hydrominder tip when you make the changeover to winter chemicals.
Floor heat: Do a check of your floor heat system and make sure everything is in working order. You don’t want to find out it’s not functioning properly after winter is already here.
Radiant heat: Just as with your floor heat, if there’s a problem with your radiant heaters, you want to find out before you need them.
Garage doors: If you have garage doors on your in-bay automatic, make sure they cycle properly to let cars enter and exit the wash.
Bay fittings: Check your swivels and fittings in the bays for leaks to avoid ice buildup.
Pits: Check to be sure your pits aren’t full before the weather gets bad. It’s a lot easier to empty them in nice weather.
