Let’s take a look at how all the parts of your Dog Wash work

to follow instructions are posted right on the control panel for the
first time customer to follow.
The owner then
inserts coins or bills into the deluxe coin box. The coin box can
be programmed to accept any amount of money for any amount of time.
Note that the coin box does not give change. The timer then starts
to countdown and water flow begins. Note that the Dog Wash does not
need a pump. We do not want to power wash our dogs; we are simply
giving them a shower with normal city water pressure. Hot water and
cold water then merge together into the blending valve creating a
constant flow of warm bath water. The rotary switch may then be turned
to the desired function.
When the rotary
switch is turned to the shampoo function, the corresponding solenoid
inside the control panel is activated. When the trigger on the shower
head is squeezed open, the flow of the warm water creates a natural
suction, siphoning up the desired shampoo which then gets mixed in
with the warm water and what comes out of the shower head is a pleasant,
warm, sudsy lather. The owner then bathes the entire dog in the soapy
When the pet
has been cleaned sufficiently with the soap they simply turn the rotary
switch to the rinse function. When the selector switch is turned to
rinse the soap solenoid shuts off and nothing but warm water is flushed
through the lines until dog is thoroughly rinsed.
By turning the
rotary switch to the conditioner setting, the corresponding solenoid
for conditioner will activate automatically drawing up the conditioner
product. When finished applying conditioner we once again rinse.
After the customer
has finished washing and rinsing, it’s time to dry the dog.
First of all, it’s important to note that the Kleen-Pet Dog
Wash Dryer DOES NOT blow hot air as hot air can seriously dry out
a dog’s skin. Working closely with the pet grooming industry,
we have developed dryers specifically designed for dogs. These dryers
blow room temperature ambient air and will not harm dog skin. All
the owner needs to do is once again turn the rotary switch to one
of the dry settings. Once the rotary switch is turned to one of the
dryer functions, the water flow immediately stops and the dryer is
automatically activated. Gentle dry will activate one of the two motors
in the dryer forcing a steady stream of room temperature air through
the dryer hose. For larger or longhaired dogs customers can choose
super dry, which activates the second motor, giving double the air
forced through the dryer hose.
If during the
course of wash the customer begins to run out of time, a last minute
warning beep will sound alerting the customer to insert more money
giving them additional time.
Once the dog
is thoroughly cleaned, washed and dried, the owner then unhooks the
restraining leash and leads it down the ramp. And voila, a clean and
happy family pet.
