The samples above were taken from two different carwash reclaim systems. The carwash using Ver-tech Labs reclaim compatible chemicals has noticeably clearer reclaim water than the system using a competitor’s chemicals. Carwashes that switch to Ver-tech Labs reclaim compatible carwash products will often experience reduced odor in days.

What does your reclaim system water look like?

*the fine print: Only one site will be reimbursed for multi-site carwash operations, minimum weekly carwash count required, mechanical system must be functioning properly, ALL products in the carwash must be manufactured by Ver-tech Labs, all products must be used as directed, carwash location must be within one of our chemical representatives territory.

Reclaim Compatiblity – How Products Affect Your System

1. Products from all parts of your wash come together down in your reclaim pit. As they combine they will either be compatible or not. Using products that are incompatible can cause problems – odor, clogs in the dispensing system.

2. The two beakers represent reclaim pits using products that are reclaim compatible.

3. When Non-Reclaim products are added to the system, the reclaim pit begins to be compromised. Notice that adding reclaim compatible product to the beaker on the left keeps the simulated reclaim pit clear.

4. Non reclaim compatible products and contaminants create masses of trapped dirt and soap that do not settle. The water reclamation system will struggle to operate properly with the gooey material created by the use of non reclaim compatible products. The masses also attract harmful bacteria that cause the rotten egg odor.

5. Switching to VTL products over time will clean up the nasty effects of using non-reclaim products with each wash. The beaker on the right simulates the addition of VTL reclaim compatible products over time to a compromised reclaim system. Customers have reported a significant change in as little as 3 days.

The main reason a reclaim system smells is that the chemicals entering the system are NOT reclaim compatible. Reclaim compatible chemicals are formulated to work with each other and reduce the ability for smelly masses to form in the reclaim system. Your system will run better, clean cars better and smells better.

Not sure if your chemicals are reclaim compatible? Ask your Ver-tech Labs chemical representative for a free reclaim compatible product test kit. If you are not a Ver-tech Labs customer and would like a free test kit – please email with your name, email, carwash name, location (city/state) and what type of reclaim system is on site.
