  "Tips of the Trade"
Attend three, fast paced and very practical "learning stations" for immediate take-aways for you and your staff.
Calculating Chemical Costs: With the onslaught of "unlimiteds" and $3 car washes, it is very important to properly calculate the cost per car of   chemicals. Todd Glover of Diamond Shine will discuss how to do volumetric chemical measuring in a way that everyone can easily follow.   This session can help you save money!
Trouble-Free Bill Changers: What is proper preventative maintenance of various bill changer components? Walter Sullivan from Money Systems will  provide the dos and don'ts of service that can save you having to call an outside source for repairs. Learn how to do it yourself properly and avoid down time.
Gates De-Mystified: With labor costs continuing to grow and good help becoming more and more limited, gates may be a good option for your car wash. Maybe you already have a gate. Is a single gate worth installing or do you even have the room on the property to have a gate? Adam Korngold from Washify will help you evaluate the pros and cons of gated systems, and the latest features for different wash configurations.
