Rotowash Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

How does the Rotowash work?

Rotowash’s unique twin contra-rotating brush system – as each rotating Rotowash bristle leaves contact with the cleaning surface the dirt and waste water is instantly flicked onto the tough rotating pick-up drum, which deposits the grime into the waste tray, returning the bristles cleaned before coming into contact with the surface again.

How much water does the Rotowash use?

Typically, very little water is needed to clean sufficiently. The operator has full control of how much water and cleaning solution is put down given the particular cleaning situation.

What is the difference between Single-Pass and Dual-Pass Rotowash models?

Single Pass Machines


The single pass machines feature frontal located water-jets utilizing a pump system, allowing for the entire cleaning process to be completed in one motion, producing outstanding results with maximum efficiency. Single pass machines are especially useful in larger areas such as sports halls, long corridors or shopping centers, though their unique maneuverability makes them equally effective in confined areas.

Dual Pass Machines


The gravity feed water system (no water pump) allows our dual pass machines to produce unrivaled levels of cleanliness. Used in a forward and backward motion, the machines clean and dry as they work, leaving all of your surfaces deeply cleansed and ready for use within minutes.
