SRP® Heaters Successfully Installed at Rock N Wash in Edmonton

Case Studies

The Facility

Rock N Wash®, located in Edmonton, Alberta, is a premier car wash facility known for its exceptional service and customer experience.

The Heating Challenge

Rock N Wash®  needed a robust heating solution to keep the car wash stalls warm during cold days, ensuring customer comfort. The heaters had to be heavy-duty, capable of withstanding exposure to water and harsh chemicals, and have a lifespan of five years or more.


Paul Knowler, an SRP® representative in Edmonton, AB, was contacted by the owners of Rock N Wash® to design and implement a suitable heating solution. The objective was to keep customers warm and comfortable while they washed their cars, even in the harshest conditions.

Paul proposed a heating method that combined energy efficiency with durability, ideal for environments where corrosive chemicals are frequently used. The solution involved installing a total of 10 SRP® UXR heaters. These heaters were specifically chosen for their:

  • 304 sealed stainless-steel burners
  • 409 stainless-steel tubes
  • 304 stainless-steel parts
  • 5052 marine-grade aluminum reflectors

These materials are known for their exceptional resistance to corrosion, making the UXR series perfect for car wash facilities.


The installation of the SRP® UXR heaters resulted in significant energy savings and reliable, long-term heating. The heaters have proven to be highly efficient, requiring minimal maintenance while offering an extended lifespan. The durable design of the UXR series ensures that they can withstand the demanding conditions of a car wash environment, providing consistent performance year after year.

The success of this project highlights the effectiveness of SRP’s heating solutions in specialized applications.


The successful implementation of SRP® UXR heaters at Rock N Wash® in Edmonton, AB, underscores the importance of durable, energy-efficient heating solutions in environments exposed to water and corrosive chemicals. By providing a comfortable experience for customers and ensuring reliable operation, SRP® has significantly enhanced the overall functionality of the Rock N Wash® facility.
