NEW "Mini Pro" Prima Bathing System
“Champion in it’s Class”
The PRIMA Bathing System “Mini Pro” is the latest innovation to make professional quality dog bathing possible anywhere. This small portable bathing system is designed for breeders and professional handlers who need fast easy bathing with superior results. Shampoo is applied under pressure massaging deep into the coat. The evenly distributed shampoo rinses clean providing a healthy and beautiful coat.
The “Mini Pro” comes with 2 interchangeable 2 gallon containers to hold diluted shampoos. The PRIMA method of applying highly diluted shampoo under pressure is much more effective than old fashioned hand bathing with squeeze bottles. The spray trigger is light and easy to maneuver around the dog in all of the hard to reach areas. The system holds enough shampoo to wash several dogs depending on their size and coat.
The portable “Mini Pro” comes in two configurations 115volt and 12volt with rechargeable battery pack. The 12volt system comes on a convenient roll along cart with retractable handle.
Price: $495 - $720

Oh my Gosh... Shoot!
I just bought a different bathing system LAST WEEK to help out with my Housecall grooming and now this looks like it would be perfect for Housecall. Grrr.
Here's a link to a photo on a Newf rescue fundraiser site (they raffled one off). It's the only image I could come up with to satisfy my curiosity -- wish Prima's site was more informative!
This wouldn't be perfect for housecall because how would you rinse the dog. The recirculating machine is the way to go for house calls.

These things don not cost a fraction of that to make, but since the market is soooooo small, they just jack it up because they know the groomers need these systems (and I'm referring to all these vendors, not just this one).
I made a system using 2 old stainless steel fire extinguishers, an airbrush compressor, and a scotch guard applicator. Compressor pressurizes the tanks, pull trigger, solution comes out....cost me nothing since I already had the parts lying around, but it would cost no more than a hundred bucks if you were to buy the parts yourself.....
I so agree dogbarber. I have 2 systems now..one on the wall, one in the tub...both were 1500 each! you should patent that and sell it to us cheap!! LOL
dogbarber, you can still patent your "version"....just cheaper..I think that what most people have done. first was hydrosurge recirculating..then Hanvey came out with his..then the luxury spa system...all same concept. same with the clipper vac's. It might be something to look into?? never know, could be your million $$ waiting! lol
You're so right. I just got a recirculating system and I love it but as soon as my boyfriend saw it he yelled at me because he could have made me one for half price since all it is is a sub pump, a hose with nozzle and an air switch. I did know they were easy to make but since I have never used one, decided to buy my first one, but I spent $300 something not $600! Now I realize that I could have made one or have my bf make me one for $150 but I figured for the extra $150 I'd be safe and have a good one and now I have it as a model if I ever do need a new one, I can do it myself! Boyfriend wants to try and make one and see how it goes, maybe see if he can improve on it and sell them on Ebay. ::shrugs:: I got mine from Gryphon who gets it from Doug (Pet Stuff Express) and then there's the Luxury Spa which I hear is good and in the $300 range as well. Definitley worth it if you aren't handy or don't want to risk messing up and having to spend the extra $ anyway! But the $400, $500 and $600 I just can't understand paying that for a $125 subpump...

I don't know if I am allowed to post this, but an engineer friend of mine and myself are getting ready to market an inexpensive walk-in grooming tub and an inexpensive bathing system. I'm hoping to have a booth at the Princeton Show with working models. Robie girl
Robie, keep us informed, I know anything that works that we can get cheaper is a great thing!!
Keep me posted on this when you get ready to market it. We are hoping to break ground on our facility in the late fall and are looking at all options right now. We've looked at the stainless steel tubs, regular tubs on a raised platform, bathing systems etc...I keep looking at the same thing over and over. We need something that's cost effective, effecient and is not going to break us before we ever get started! I agree with the other posters that the manufacturers have us over a barrel because they know we need it!
