What is a Portable Wash Bay?

Portable wash bay system

Portable Wash bays are relocatable self-contained wash-down stations used for wash down activity involving vehicles and machinery with the primary objective of retaining wastewater before it enters the sewar network. They are also commonly referred to as car wash containers, heavy duty wash bays, wash mats, and portable wash bay systems.

An entry-level portable wash bay system typically consists of a vehicle wash mat constructed from either standard PVC or HD PVC (heavy duty), a bunded perimeter wall allowing for vehicle access while retaining all wastewater within and a pump for transporting wastewater for treatment, recycling or to a holding tank depending on your requirements.

TWA001 Portable Wash Bay

Process: 

  1. Wash down a vehicle on the wash mat.
  2. As water collects on the wash mat the automatic wash bay pump will pump water off the mat to a holding tank.
  3. As the level in the tank rises it activates the float switch which activates the pump feed to the separator which gravity feeds to the sewer.
  4. The separator pump controller has 2 x floats, 1 for activating the pump and the other acts as a high level alarm indicating a flashing strobe to signal the level in the tank reaching a high level and to investigate.

Wastewater Removal

All Trade Wash washbays come with a minimum 12V pump and 3M power cable for pumping washdown wastewater either for treatment, recycling or to a holding tank. Our 12V pumps feature a stainless steel base plate coupled with an automatic float switch to detect when the wash mat is at near capacity.

Does Your Business Require a WashBay?

A wash bay is required for environmental compliance by businesses who have wash down activity occurring in their place of business. Regardless of the size of your operation, essentially if you are washing vehicles or machinery in any capacity on your business premises you require a wash bay.

Wash bays protect the environment by preventing untreated wash down wastewater from entering the sewer network untreated. Wastewater from wash down activity can either be treated, recycled or held in a holding tank to be taken off site at your convenience.


What is the Advantage of a Portable Washbay?

A portable wash bay offers several advantages to a permanent wash bay including the following:

  • Less expensive setup costs compared to a permanent wash bay
  • Can be installed much faster than standard wash bays
  • Can be custom made to suit your exact requirements
  • They can be stored when not in use or used in different locations
  • Provides 100% spill containment or as a complete trade waste system including pumps and oil water separator
  • Can be used for liquid storage requirements
  • Specially designed edge profile, allowing for efficient vehicle entry while containing wastewater
A portable wash bay is an ideal solution for smaller operations who simply require a way of retaining wastewater to be environmentally compliant. They are also ideal for non-permanent work sites e.g. commercial developments.


A Cost Efficient Solution

Our portable wash bay systems have the capacity to save you thousands of dollars when compared to a more permanent wash down solution.

We can custom build specifically for your requirements or space constraints and can also advise on how smaller operators can provide a compliant solution without the need for additional wastewater reclamation equipment or dealing with local water authorities. No tricks, just common sense solutions that minimise your paperwork.
