New car wash comes up with innovative solution to drought
WHERE's the water coming from? That's the million dollar question for Warwick's latest business, truck and car wash Bubble Cartel.
Owner Jason Ryan said it was a question he'd had to answer many times since announcing the opening, but assured customers he was sourcing water for the wash from the Sunshine Coast.
"We are completely self-sufficient. The water I use here I bring in from the Sunshine Coast. It's A-grade water I pay for myself," he said.
The store, which opened on Wednesday, would ensure treasured cars and trucks weren't left to the dust, Mr Ryan said.
"There's a need for a lot of people who have really nice cars in this town to get them clean. That's what they want," he said.
Using recycling systems as well as the carted water, Mr Ryan said the business also could provide water supply in the future.
"When it comes to water, obviously in a time where it's so precious, I'm more than happy to help out anyone who needs water too," he said. "We will be able to sell tanks, and water in those tanks, and stuff like that for stock."
Mr Ryan said with council support coming in on Wednesday, there was no reason not to support him.
"I think it's good someone's going kind of proactive, kicking off a new business and one that's sort of setting itself up to be entirely self-sufficient."
Bubble Cartel is located at 12 Project St in Warwick. They have opening specials during their first week of trade, with car washes starting from just $20.
