Clean Water Continued

Hercules-Detail_2Clean water, as we have previously stated, is an extremely important resource. Humans are around sixty percent water, so clearly we need to make sure that we are taking care of the liquid. Winter time can be rather detrimental to water sources when there is more snow that falls than there is room for. Sometimes, the snow along with the contaminants is plowed into different water areas and then it is mixed with whatever water was already in the basin. Although there is not much we can do to prevent this happening, it still isn’t good for anything that may live in that water or anything that uses water from that location.

Filtering water can be a time consuming and expensive task. I’m sure I don’t have to tell you that water can be rather costly when a lot is used. This is one of the reasons Neptune has created an automated truck wash system that can use recycled water. Our wash bays are specially designed to ensure the conservation of water. In fact, we were the first company to develop a closed loop system that included filters that can even separate out sodium chloride. That is what is used to salt the roads during the winter. There are so many possible contaminants that can be introduced to snow and water that we knew we needed to do something. The tanks that our wash bays use are top of the line and everything is constructed right here in the United States. We have done our best to make sure that water is preserved for use again and again. Although we don’t recommend drinking the recycled water, we can assure you that it is certainly clean enough to wash down your trucks or equipment with.

Winter can bring about many problems when it comes to water. It can get contaminants in almost any water source, water has a tendency to freeze, and between cooking more and longer hot showers, quite a bit gets used. We hope that you can get through this season with minimal trouble. Hopefully, when the snow thaws this spring, there will be very little contamination from the melting in any other water source. Have a safe and happy season!
