Sweetwater Car Wash upgrades technology

Staff Reports

Greg and father Chuck Kriss, co-owners of Sweetwater Car Wash in Gardnerville, have announced the installation of a new laser touchless system.

“This new equipment is the latest in exterior automatic car wash technology where the customer remains in their vehicle,” they said. “With this new technology, the equipment is guided by sensors to conform to the shape of the car.”

“The new wash is very fast and gives a clean, dry and shiny car, which is the goal for every car leaving Sweetwater Car Wash,” Greg Kriss said.

An ecological feature of the car wash is the recycling of the reject water from the reverse osmosis (spot-free system). The water is collected and used in the first stage of the wash. There are brightly lit LED signs and verbal messages to tell customers what procedure is being done and what is happening to the car as they drive through.

Both Greg and Chuck are car enthusiasts and have competed in various race events.

“The Kriss Family invite you to try out the new car wash and see how clean and shiny your car can be,” they said. The family also owns Grand Prix Express Car Wash in south Gardnerville.

Sweetwater Car Wash is located at 1487 Highway 395, Gardnerville, and is open 24/7.

A potential adopter enters search criteria for the kind of pet he or she wants, and a list is returned that ranks the pets in proximity to the ZIP code entered.

Adoptions are handled by the animal placement group where the pet is housed, and each group has its own policies.

Petfinder.com was created in early 1996 as a grassroots project by Jared and Betsy Saul to end the euthanasia of adoptable pets. Since its inception, the site has facilitated approximately 20 million adoptions.
