“The Prima Encore is a perfect addition to any grooming salon. As a mobile groomer, it saves me time, shampoo and most importantly water! This system really penetrates through coats and leaves them squeaky clean! It is quite amazing!”
Jodi Murphy, Two-time Master Pet Stylist & National Certified Master Groomer
“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.”

“The PRIMA Bathing System is a welcome leap forward for the industry and surpasses anything I have tried in over 40 years in the business. Kennel owners, vet hospitals and groom shop owners in particular will find it solves many problems.
Prima is a simple, rugged machine, that can be installed in minutes. Whatever your current set up, Prima is going to improve it! The savings in time, water and product means the investment will be paid back within weeks, not months!”

“Hi I would like to thank you so very much for calling me at Pet Inn back in 2004. I know I said NO when you first called me about Prima Bathing System, as I had been grooming dogs for the last 25 years, I was just so sure we got the dogs extra clean our way. I was so wrong. When it arrived it was so simple to set up. We just pulled it out of the box, plugged it in and filled it with water and a very little amount of shampoo and we were ready to go. We use so little water as there is no pre wetting the dog first. Just start washing gets the dogs deep down clean. It separates the long hairs and get them extra clean. It saves my wrist from all the scrubbing and the dogs love it too. I know it seems like a lot of money. It did to me at first too, but the money you save in water, shampoo, and the TIME it saves you, really makes it all worth the price. I have had 8 years of maintenance free easy to use shampooer for my bathing. Thank you so much!”

“I opened ‘Divine Dogs’ in 2011. I purchased lots of ‘stuff’ as I was not sure what would prove valuable and what would not. The Prima Bathing System has been my most valuable investment. I was skeptical that I could get a dog clean, clean, clean using so little shampoo and water. The results have been amazing. I groom many big dogs and it is wonderful to see them so clean with minimal effort.
Prima is not afraid of your asking questions. Their 800 number is printed right on the equipment and I’ve called it several times and ALWAYS gotten a live person. Their customer service always exceeds my expectations.
If this bathing system broke today, without hesitation I would order a new one tomorrow. Prima has saved me time and money and given me happy clients. Thank you.”

“I would like to take a moment just to let you know how much I enjoy bathing now with my Prima Bathing System. I have owned a Prima for about 10 years now and have used both the Prima and the Pima Encore. I love the way it gets dogs coats so clean and ready for a good grooming. I highly recommend this unit for any groomer. I love using it to bath and it saves a lot on shampoo, water, and your back. If any groomer is interested, but not to sure, I would be glad to put in a good word for the Prima. I have been grooming for 26 years now and other local groomers in my area I have presented this unit to and they have purchased. Thank you again for making bathing a lot more enjoyable!”

“As you know, I placed my order for yet another Prima Bathing system just the other day. My name is Carrie Todd and I have owned three dog grooming shops in the Denver-metro area over the past 10 years. In addition to owning shops, I have worked in several dog grooming salons between my times of ownership. The salons that I bought were already operational and had existing bathing systems and all the shops that I worked in had bathing systems — none of which were the Prima. Needless to say, I have used many bathing systems. I learned of the Prima Bathing system in about 2002 and decided to try it in one of my shops. All of my employees loved it as well as myself. I purchased three more Prima Bathing systems at that time and used it exclusively over the years. I will say that from my experience, the Prima Bathing system is simple, quick and easy to use. Refilling it with shampoo is fast and easy and the mixture and consistency is always perfect. It saves a ton of shampoo and water and there never were operational issues that would disrupt a busy dog grooming day that I experienced with other bathing systems. I just bought another dog grooming shop and my choice of a bathing system was a no-brainer; I googled Prima Bathing and ordered one right away!
Thanks Prima for a good product! My bathers thank you too”
Carrie Todd, The Barker Shop, Wheat Ridge, CO
“The system saved my hands YET AGAIN. I got called out to groom three HUGE collies at one house. They had never been groomed and live outside. Need I say more; filthy, filthy dogs wearing heavy half pelted coats. The prima got thru all that hair and under those mats. You know how nasty collies get under the tail, I couldn’t even FIND their skin but I was able to wash right thru all that mess. (Lordy if I had to do them by hand I would be a cripple this morning) and my knuckles are NOT swollen this morning at all. After the three collies (took me 4 hours – 1 was a shave down, one was a modified clip and coat king work, and the male was a good brush/coat king work) I then went on to do a nasty chow, then a small short hair 2 week old, and then a 5 week old schnauzer puppy. And I still had mix left in the tank. And I only used about 1/4 of the water in my main water tank, so I know the rinsing part is now much faster too. Again, why anyone would use a recycling system is beyond me, especially if mobile. I just don’t like spraying dirty water back on the dog...its gross. And I would spend more time rinsing because I felt the dog was still dirty and then I would hand wash again anyway. BIG WASTE of time, water and shampoo.”
