Looks cool.

How will the EPA permit that in the US? All the marina pressure washing stations near me have water treatment on the drains.

I notice on their map of facilities they show one in San Diego, two in Florida, ione n Lewisville (nr Dallas/Ft Worth) and at least one in Canada - not to mention the ones in Europe.

Re: Car Wash For Boat Hulls

I have one of these at my marina. I've asked one of the dock hands at the fill station if it works, and they said they have never seen it work. Imagine that, but its time to cut the grass so I figure ill ask the manager of the joint this weekend.
I am in lewisville.

It is permitted because there are no Federal restrictions on in-water hull cleaning of pleasure craft. Just as you can hire diver to clean your hull, you can use this contraption as well.

The difference is that this contraption isn't going to clean your running gear, thru-hulls or transducers. Nor is it going to change any needed anodes, remove any entanglements, give you a condition report etc., etc., etc. You still have to hire a human to do those things.
