A new budget season is upon us and now is the time to get Evolution Dog Wash into your capital spending budget for the 2022 year. Standard size Evolution Dog Wash machines start at $14,500 and each machine comes with a complete, two-year warranty. We offer a number of customization options, including personalization with your company’s logo.
As you prepare your 2022 budget to include Evolution Dog Wash, it’s also time to consider the facility preparations that are needed before your dog wash can be installed. Here’s what you need to know.
Planning the Space for your Dog Wash
Evolution Dog Wash is much more than a bathtub for dogs. Our customized, low maintenance machines are made of aircraft grade stainless steel with a triple filtration drain system to protect your facility’s plumbing. This means only having to clean the dog wash tub once a day, compared to other standard tubs which usually clog up after a few washes. Each of our models includes a commercial grooming dryer and product selection for shampoo, conditioner and disinfectant.
Our dog wash dimensions are 79.5-inches wide, 74.6-inches high and 27.7-inches deep.
We recommend at minimum a 100-square foot (10’x10’) space, if possible, for your dog wash. But, the bigger, the better! Keep in mind that this is a luxury amenity you are adding for your dog-loving residents. A larger spa room or outdoor space provides ample room for dogs to exercise and socialize. Many properties have events for the residents around the dog wash to enhance community connections. Yappy Hour has become a favorite as well as adoption events and inviting the local police to wash their K-9 pets.
If you are planning an indoor spa room, we suggest a first-floor space (so tenants won’t be walking muddy dogs upstairs or through common areas, soiling walls and flooring) and near a bathroom or laundry facility for easy access to plumbing to keep installation costs down. Some properties choose to install the doggie spa in the parking garage for convenience when tenants come back from outings with their dog. If your dog wash will be set up outdoors, consider placing it near a clubhouse or in your property dog park, provided there is existing plumbing, such as a dog water fountain.
Although our dog wash can be outdoors in warmer climates, it is made of stainless steel, which can get very hot if not shielded by a shade structure, awning or other covering. An outdoor covered space, or indoor climate-controlled space is ideal for comfort of both the dog and its owner.
Preparing Utilities for Evolution Dog Wash
Evolution Dog Wash can be installed by any qualified plumber and electrician, provided the necessary utilities are in place. Our machine requires:
- Cold and hot water supply connection (hot water is optional; we offer an internal water heater if needed)
- ¾-inch incoming water line
- 2-inch waste drain connection
- Dedicated 120V 30 Amp hard-wired connection (optional internal water heater requires additional 120V 20 Amp circuit)
Purchasing an Evolution Dog Wash
If you are ready to purchase Evolution Dog Wash for your multi-family property, the first step is to contact our sales team at 888-303-0553. Let our team member know your budget and how many units you are considering. According to a Gallup poll, 44 percent of Americans own a dog, so larger apartment communities may want to consider multiple dog wash units.
Once your model has been selected and 50 percent deposit paid, we will begin the build of your unit. Most orders take eight to 10 weeks to complete. Once finished, the unit will be created and shipped to your location for installation.
Remember, a self-serve dog wash is one of the most commonly sought-after amenities for renters. Including an Evolution Dog Wash in your community plans will make dog owners, and their pets, loyal residents for years to come.
