Protecting the Environment from Seeds and Pathogens
Wash mats are used frequently for weed and seed washdown applications, proving popular with the CSG industry and protecting the environment. Seed and pathogen spread can destroy crops and cause extensive environmental damage, resulting in enormous costs and challenges. Seeds become stuck in the mud that’s often attached to the vehicle and if not washed down can potentially spread as the vehicle moves.
Car and Vehicle Wash Mat Features
Vehicle wash mats also referred to as water containment mats are ideally suited to auto detailers, car wash stations, and workplaces that are responsible for vehicle washdown.
Businesses that regularly wash down vehicles must have measures in place to address car wash water containment and comply with water runoff regulations as a result of wash water that is contaminated with liquids associated with vehicle washdown such as car waxes, paint correction, residue from foam guns, leather care and detailing products.
A reliable trade waste filtration system can be developed by incorporating a wet and dry vacuum system for transferring wastewater for external treatment to one of our oil and water separators.
Our car and vehicle wash mat comes with collapsible sides and roll over style bunding to completely contain truck and car wash water. They can be used as a temporary or a permanent solution and are manufactured from Standard or HD PVC depending on the requirements of the application.
Car and truck wash mats can also double as a large spill tray or containment area for leaking equipment at short notice. We recommend HD construction if using for storage applications and wash down.

- What do I do with the water after I have collected it: pump through bag? Collection and removal, treatment options?
This really depends on where you are and what the objective is. Weed and seed wash down are required to stop spreading of potentially damaging weeds and plant pathogens. Sometimes a simple pump through bag is sufficient for weed and seed projects.Alternatively, a dedicated containment and treatment option may be required. The agreement with the landowner or environmental legislation determines these options.Standard washing applications may require a holding tank and an oil-water separator to treat the water prior to discharge to the sewer. If only using minimal amounts you could pay a contract rate to have it taken from the site by a licensed pump out truck.
- Do I need a treatment system on a permanent wash-bay?
NO, but a cost balance between pump out and treating it does make sense. If contractors charge call out fees at a rate per 1000L you can work your cost based on a forward projection of the amount of water you intend to use (remember to utilise water saving devices such as pressure washers).A treatment system connected to sewer needs to be installed by a licensed plumber and often an electrician for pump and controller installation. The equipment starts from approx. 8K and you will usually require a trade waste permit which incurs an annual fee. If unsure call us for guidance on treatment system costs and options and we will quickly work out which option is better for you.
- Do they last?
Our car and vehicle wash mat is tough and reliable but not indestructible. We suggest NO turning wheels on the wash mat and cleaning the area of debris and sharp objects before installing. Using groundsheets if possible.
