Car Washes

Grit Removal

If you own or operate a car wash, you know the challenges involved in removing grit and sludge. Perhaps you’ve shoveled out the grit pits and troughs yourself. Worse yet, maybe you’ve even experienced the aggravation that comes with a backed up and flooding car wash bay. The downtime and loss of business take money out of your pocket.

Grit pits serve an important function for your car wash. Sand, dirt, grit, and trash accumulate every day that your car wash is in operation. Grit pits trap these solids so that they don’t clog up your car wash system or cause damage to the public sewer. Inevitably, your grit pits will fill and will need to be emptied. You can attempt to do this yourself, but that will take valuable time out of your day. Then, what do you do with the grit you shoveled out? You can push it off for another month, but an overfull grit pit puts your car wash at risk of blockages and extended downtime. Or, you can rely on the professionals to remove and dispose of your car wash waste.

High-Pressure Water Jetting

Is a clogged drain line shutting down a bay at your car wash? Fortunately, Hapchuk, Inc’s high-pressure water jetting system powers through even the most stubborn clogs. Grease, sludge, or even grit is no match for our high-pressure water jetting. Our expert technicians safely maneuver powerful water jets through your car wash's wastewater lines to clear clogs and power wash the inside of the lines. While traditional mechanical snake services only poke a hole through the blockage, our state-of-the-art jetting equipment is designed to penetrate through clogs and then blast away any hardened-on scale or debris. This is the difference between a temporary fix and a lasting solution to persistent clogs!

With equipment capable of putting out nearly 4,000 psi of pressure, we can clean lines ranging from 1.5” to 10” in diameter. Our technicians are highly trained to quickly and reliably unblock troublesome lines to minimize downtime. Or, to ensure that you don’t get a clogged line in the first place, we can set your car wash up on a preventative line jetting maintenance schedule. Regardless of which solution is best for you, it’s our goal to keep your wastewater lines in working order so that you can focus on running your business.

Thank you very, very much for pumping out the pits at my 6-bay self-service car wash. The guys did a very good job, and they were very efficient. I greatly appreciate their help. I've used Hapchuk, Inc over the years since I built my car wash, and they've always done a good job for me.
