In life, change is the only constant. In the world of automotive detailing, Lake Country Manufacturing views change as an opportunity to innovate. We are certainly no strangers to innovation, continuously researching ways to improve our products and accessories to serve both beginner and professional detailers better worldwide.
A crucial part of the automotive detailing process is cleaning your pads to ensure quality buffing and polishing. At Lake Country Manufacturing, not only are we here to provide world-class pads but we’re also able to help you keep those pads clean, maximizing their lifespan in the best way possible.
We’re proud to introduce our newest innovative product: the System 4000® Pad Washer featuring PureFlo® Technology.
The Science Behind Cleaning Pads
How System 4000® Pad Washer works is remarkably simple: it is a spring-loaded ribbed wash plate inside of a bucket, which, when pressed down upon by your polisher, uses a pump system to spray water and pad washing solution onto your pad, helping to clean it while it rotates.
The best bit: traditional pad washers recirculate dirty water thus ‘cleaning’ your pad with contaminated liquid, which is far from ideal. But, unlike those traditional designs, we’ve engineered System 4000® Pad Washer with a hidden secret compartment…
Keep Them Separated
The System 4000® Pad Washer uses a pump system to clean pads with fresh, unused water or cleaning solution to provide the best pad cleaning experience. Our unique yet simple design separates dirty water from the fresh cleaning solution by pumping from a lower bucket where the new solution resides, while increasing water pressure and reducing clogging. The dirty water instead ends up in the catch basin, containing a seal at the bottom engineered to prevent dirt and grime from leaching back into the clean solution below.
Think of this system as a “bucket within a bucket,” where the catch basin sitting above the lower bucket allows a user to stop, dump out the dirty water, and continue. This ensures pads will not be cross-contaminated with dirty water and old abrasive particles, providing a truly clean pad ready for continued use.
Lake Country Manufacturing focuses on innovation, and the System 4000® Pad Washer boasts many improvements over our original System 3000 Pad Washer. These innovations help ensure a perfect cleaning system for all our valued automotive detailing customers.
Some notable improvements that the System 4000® Pad Washer boasts include:
- An improved handle that helps carry the bucket and balance the unit
- Increased structure of the wash plate to improve durability and avoid flex or cracking
- Modified open-top to decrease the quantity of water and solution from exiting the washer
- Updated catch basin and pump seal tailored to prevent seal replacement with a new high-quality grommet seal.
