About our portable wash bays for cars and light vehicles
Portable wash bay systems are generally set up to capture wastewater from the process of cleaning cars and equipment such as mechanical parts. The wash bay floor decks can be orientated to cater to various sites and applications and installed with a pump, controller, oil water separator and pumping station for transfer to the sewer if required.
Our wash bay design is superior
Our well-designed wash bays provide businesses with an efficient process to wash vehicles or equipment. We’ve added custom high-pressure wash-down systems with water supply points to deliver high-pressure water around the vehicle and automatically apply detergent. The cleaning quality from a Cleanawater wash bay is far superior to a manual operation which is inadequate in design and equipment.
Why choose our portable car wash bays

The portable wash bay system's mobility eliminates the need for in-ground works, making them the best solution for sites where ground disturbance is prohibitive or where there is a possibility of future relocation.
No matter what industry you’re in, chances are you use a lot of water. Whether you require water for wash down and irrigation purposes, dust suppression, or onsite activities, water costs are.
It’s no secret that many industries are facing water shortage issues. For car wash operators, this is a particularly important issue as your business is reliant on water.
The term “wastewater” doesn’t have particularly appealing connotations. In areas of the world where water appears to

This will depend on the location of your site and the type of wastewater being disposed of. To remain compliant with local water authorities, the wastewater can be disposed of by:
Making an arrangement with Cleanawater operators for wastewater removal
Discharging directly into a sewerage system but you must have a licence to discharge to the sewer
Discharging to a septic tank effluent disposal scheme (STEDS) — in this case, you or a Cleanawater representative can contact the council to ensure the wastewater will be accepted
Recycling the water through a unit which removes the pollutants, allowing you to reuse the water
If you don't have access to a sewerage system, the wastewater from the washbay can be redirected to a holding tank which can be emptied by a Cleanawater operator. As licenced liquid waste collectors and contractors, we can efficiently remove wastewater while remaining compliant with industry standards.
Most industries require similar portable wash bay systems. Generally speaking, our portable car wash bay systems will:
- Filter and remove large particles, dirt, and even debris like plastic
- Collect water in a tank so oils can be separated from the water — this is an essential criterion to remain compliant with local water authorities
However, your business may require extra features depending on your operational needs. If you'd like to find out more about how our wash bays treat water, get in touch with our friendly team of wastewater treatment experts.
