For those of you who are familiar with what the industry has labeled a “recirculator”, the tub is designed to accommodate you with a space over the drain and next to the tub rack to place your pump (standard).
Our optional “Recirculator-Friendly Design” includes a protected GFI outlet and a dedicated on / off switch for the outlet just to the left of the bathing center.
The purpose of a “recirculator” (basically, a sump pump that re-uses dirty bath water) is to conserve water. Rather than washing dogs with their own dirty water, we install a larger-than-average custom-built fresh water tank. This way, groomers don’t have to worry about running out of water during a normal day’s work.
