This is not cool!
Now is the time to test the group of fittings that connects to the right of the solenoid. This is really bad because you have to take off the whole back panel.
Well I took off the panel to remove the solenoid and I had to take a picture (second picture) what was behind the panel. (The solenoid was being held on by 2 screws.) So I took off the group of fitting and they look totally clogged with rust. The barbs are the same way. I believe the only way to fix this problem is to order a new part from Grainger.
I added a 3/4″ check valve today. Just so happens that I was going to order one today online but Mike, a distributor (Premier Carwash Systems) in our area, pulled up at my car wash. So I just purchased the part from him…. really easy!
I drove by the Morgan Road Car Wash today. Greg purchased it a couple days ago. They have put in another automatic and gone up on there self-serve prices from $2.00 to $2.50! So since December 10th, 2005 they have only gone up $.50….. inflation definately has not hit the self-serve market!
If you are interested, the wash has 2 Jim Coleman Water Wizards: 1 is the original while the other is a new 2.0 non-profiling. It has 2 Hamilton entry units and also a Jim Coleman Space Saver pumping unit for the self-serve bays.
I got my 2010 Monthly Special Calendar from Kleen-Rite Corporation and I was shocked! I mean where are all the hot women Kleen-Rite! I remember the 2008 Kleen-Rite calendar and every month was great!
