Spotless Water is it not working out?



Recommended Posts

chris clean

Hi guys I wonder if anyone on the forum is from spotless water or knows much about then? I've been watching intrigued to see if the idea and business model works. I personally would only use them in an emergency because of the cost.

 

It seems they had a huge amount of locations promised as "coming soon" across the country but these have been virtually the same since I first lookelooked probably a year or more ago. Non of the promised locations have ever opened in my area. So was just wondering had anyone heard anything I know they have a number open but I'm guessing that the uptake is not what they hoped so that's why they aren't opening more

It seems they are growing (albeit very slowly) but only on demand (ie enough registrations on their site within an area to install a new box). 

 

Long story short, if only a couple of people have registered their interest in an area, Spotless don't see demand to invest in a unit if there's going to be little return for them. 

 

Closest one to me is 45min away and like you, I'd only use it for an emergency as I have an RO+DI system in my van, and I've had a keychain since they launched I can't use.

Interesting cheers mate. I have seen some Facebook adds put out by spotless and lots of comments saying they have been told various locations will be open by certain times and the time given has come and gone. I was told my area is a key location and will be open by Christmas! I doubt it will

They cant provide dates for Chesterfield, Nottingham, Mansfield or Sheffield. 

 

The 'coming soon' is not a bit of BS it is an outright LIE!  

 

They finally admitted that they were coming as soon as enough people in an are register for an account.  

 

They don't get it... 'if you build it they will come'

 

They think 'when they come we will build it'

It's a strange business model isn't it! Would like to fast forward a few years and see if idea falls flat on its face or they get it right in the end! I hope they do get it right as Im always one for hoping new ventures are successful and in an emergency or if working out of area it would be a handy back up to have but I'm starting to wonder about them

I got promised my local one was due for opening mid October, then before Christmas, now coming early in the new year. Ok mate I’ll now believe it when I see it.

I do get emails with 1 or 2 opening a month. Apparently they’ve had trouble with the company that’s making them so there’s been a delay.

When I said the nearest one is currently 30 mins away through Southampton city centre he replied saying don’t worry mate you can go anytime as they’re 24 hours!

Yeah cheers pal I’ll fill up at midnight to dodge the traffic problem solved.

Someone on this forum ages ago said there is a method to their madness. I think eventually the idea is for them to have their own national window Cleaning company with 100s of filling stations around the country for them to tap

into. But they only way they could really get the network up and running was for other people to pay for it, hence they will only build a station once there is a demand of people who will use it to pay for it. That’s the gist of it anyway.

The guy who set up spotless already owns spotless valeting, so after spotless water it will be spotless window cleaning. And all of you are paying for their infrastructure lol

I wonder how much is it to set up per station? And running costs?

They must have a top of the range 40/40 R.O, a 10,000L+ storage tank just constantly filling if it’s being used daily, booster pump when needed, a couple of 25L D.I vessels (or even bigger) all the plumbing & wiring with the touch key pad. Then ground rent for where, and regularly replacing Filters & resin cause it’s always at 000pp
