The innovation that is being used in Frank's Auto Spa is owned by the Spanish Manufacturer of the tunnel (Istobal) and consists of equipment which reutilizes more than 90% of the water.
According to the UN SDGs, clean and accesible water for all is an essential part of the world we want to live in. Millions of people die every year from diseases associated with inadequate water supply.
By using Istobal's technology in Frank's Auto Spa, an average of 144 liters of water are saved per washed car.

The high level of water consumption savings are accomplished with the use of a water treatment process which involves the utilization of two decanting pits to reduce the amount of solids followed by a state-of-the-art biological recycler (using bacteria) that sends clean water back to the system and is used for the first steps in the wash process.
This technology is patented by Istobal, therefore the details of the mechanism of action are not publicly available.
It is estimated that a standard wash tunnel recycles about 45% of the water only. With the system installed at Frank's Auto Spa, that numbers doubles up to 90%.
Although it hasn't been quantified there is a group of consumers that are concerned about the environment, therefore they would most likely choose Frank's Auto Spa's services rather than other non eco-friendly car wash services, which could be translated to added income.
