A hydrobath dog wash is basically a dog sized bath which has a hand held shower head. A pump sprays fresh, warm water at a moderate pressure which penetrates through the dogs coat, not only washing it thoroughly but also cleaning the skin and provides for an invigorating massage.
During the dog wash cycle, the water is pumped in a recycling manner before being drained and fresh water is then used to rinse clean the dog. CLEAR Mobile Dog Grooming has a strict policy that each dog we wash has its own fresh water. The recycling of water during the wash means hydrobaths are extremely water efficient. It like washing your dishes in a plugged sink as opposed to washing them under free running taps!
At the start or during of the wash and rinse cycles we add the desired solutions, such as shampoo, conditioner, flea rinse etc. We have many different types depending on your dogs needs. Using a hydrobath will open the pores of the dogs skin which may aid, cure and prevent many skin infections and irritations, as well as remove a lot of dead hair. The pressured water along with the Flea medications can remove fleas and parasites (Ticks can be a problem in Brisbane), and alleviate arthritis.
A regular hydrobath dog wash is an essential part of your dogs grooming needs. It will help maintain clean and healthy skin and coat, and maintain the well being of your dog
The hydrobath used by CLEAR Mobile Dog grooming is an autofill model. It has two tanks, a holding tank and a wash tank. The holding tank connects to your water tap and automatically fills by a control float. The Holding tank heats the water. Water is taken from the holding tank to the wash tank where shampoo etc is added. The dog is then washed in a recycling motion from the wash tank while the holding tank refills and reheats new water. When washed, dirty water is drained away and fresh warm water from the holding tank is used to rinse clean the dog.
The hydrobath has a thermostat control for the water temperature. It also has a pressure control so we can use normal pressure or next to no pressure at all if required or for the face.
We have had some big customers, though we recommend the very large customers (such as Saint Bernards or Malamutes) go to a larger non mobile salon where there is more space to groom them. There is a pull down floor to raise smaller dogs which is put up for larger dog. There is also a front door for larger dogs to walk in to the bath.
