“We bought the Prima Bathing System in 2005 and since then have noticed that it not only saves us time and money but gets the dogs squeaky clean with less effort. Since switching to the Prima Bathing System, it has already helped pay for itself with the drastic reduction of my monthly water bill. I also end using less shampoo and conditioner as the dilution ratio and pressurized nozzle are optimized for maximum cleaning. Because of this my bathers are able to work on more dogs in a shorter amount of time without tiring as fast. This efficiency has brought an increase in revenue as I am able to book more dogs each day. Clients also love how their dogs go home feeling super clean and great smelling whenever their dogs leave after a spa day with us. One of my bathers has tried other competitors’ bathing systems and found that she still had to supplement with bottle washing as those systems did not thoroughly clean dogs. With the Prima Bathing System however, bottle washing is not necessary.”

“I am the owner of a dog grooming business and also the proud owner of the Prima Bathing System for 5 years. One might wonder why a groomer would need this equipment for shampooing a dog. You would go through gallons and gallons of shampoo and time has to be considered too. With a system like this, a groomer can get more dogs done in a shorter amount of time but for me mostly, it’s the efficiency and effectiveness that matters most. Also, I use a shampoo that dilutes 50:1 and it’s made for bathing systems. I learned about this system when I was getting certified at dog grooming school. After using it a few times, I realized that it was going to be necessary for my salon so I bought one and not once have I regretted it. If this died, I wouldn’t hesitate for one minute to get it repaired or buy a new one.
I groom many large dogs from golden retrievers to Samoyeds and Old English Sheepdogs. This is where the system really makes life easier. Some dogs are double and triple coated or have long thick fur. The Prima is like a power washer for dogs. It gets right down to the skin. To do this manually, not only would you go through tons of shampoo but the manual labor adds a lot of extra time and strain on your body. Honestly, I could not live without it. If anything goes ‘burp’, I call Gary Falkenburg and he immediately addresses the issue. He never puts me off, he knows what the problem is and if not, he works me through what to do so the problem can be taken care of. He even sent me a loaner in the past to get me through an upcoming difficult day of bathing huge dogs. I know there are a few other bathing systems out there but my experience with Gary and the Prima has been so positive that there is no way I’d try another.
The Prima requires very little upkeep to maintain good working order. Just run clean water through the system at the end of every day and every few weeks, run vinegar and water on the inside of the pump and the interior of the machine. That’s it, very easy and quick. If you have a problem, it can be as simple as air in the line which you can remove by running the auxiliary or just getting the filter back on properly. It’s worth every penny and then some.
Feel free to call me if you want to discuss the benefits of the Prima any further. I’m not selling anything, I am just a happy consumer of this fabulous product and I use it daily with appreciation. You can get my number from Gary if you wish to call me.”

“I bought my Prima Bathing System 10 years ago because it was the first bathing system I’d seen that made sense. The Prima Bathing System isn’t a recycling system and is absolutely easy to use, just plug it in, add water and a little shampoo and that’s it. I plugged my machine in 10 years ago and NEVER had to think about it again.
I have a small, busy grooming shop in NY state, and we calculate that we’ve done over 39,000 baths in 10 years that we’ve used the Prima Bathing System without ever having to do anything to the machine besides routine cleaning. Any serious groomer knows how hard we use equipment and how often we replace clippers, dryers, etc. The Prima Bathing System has been 100% reliable without one repair or replacement of any parts, and that includes hoses and nozzles. The secret of this product is its simplicity and its durable construction.
My Prima Bathing System allows us to bathe more dogs, faster, and gets them cleaner and it helps to keep the bathing area drier, therefore safer. The final point I’d like to make is the amount of money I save on shampoo, as none is wasted and the dilution ratio is amazing. I would highly recommend that every groomer or veterinarian get this time and money saving machine. Thanks.”
