The all-new Aqua-Lab™ chemical dispensing system is now available for pre-order and will begin to ship in August. Aqua-Lab’s evolution builds on the performance customers depend on and now offers a connected experience to move chemical dispensing into the future.

“At Hydra-Flex, we always say, ‘What gets measured improves,’” said Jaime Harris, Hydra-Flex founder and CEO. “So our team has been hard at work designing and improving the new system, and we’ve verified it with internal testing and field trials in car washes all across the country.”

A new, intuitive, front-loaded design ensures Aqua-Lab is remarkably easy to install, operate, and maintain. The system and its Grundfos Integrated VFD pump deliver chemicals accurately and efficiently. It’s optimized to supply more pressure while using less power to reduce water, chemical, and energy use.

Also, the next generation of Aqua-Lab is now connected thanks to Alfred, a personal car wash assistant. Alfred is an online monitoring system that offers real-time analytics, updates, alerts, and summary reports to help watch over a wash.

“What excites me most about the next generation of Aqua-Lab is the Alfred platform, which creates a connected environment and provides operators instant access to the system’s performance and data analytics,” said Jeff Resmer, Hydra-Flex director of vehicle care sales. “Alfred’s capabilities will evolve and expand as Hydra-Flex continues to innovate, giving operators a wealth of information to better manage their maintenance and operations processes.”
