What approvals/permits are required to install a K9000?
It is best to check with your local authorities, as each region will vary.

We have installed machines in all locations and always been able to meet local approvals.

How much does it cost to run a cycle on the machine?
With data from over 2000 machines installed, we know that it costs between $1.00-1.50 to run a cycle in the dogwash machine. The price for a customer to wash the dog usually is around $10 for 10 minutes. At these rates, the profit margin is quite attractive to investors and business owners alike.

We recommend the K9000 gets a service every 12-24 months by a technician. The machines are built to last and many basic service tasks can be completed by the owner, with guidance from our operator manual and phone support.
