How To Deal With Wash Water

There is more and more growing concern when it comes to commercial pressure washing companies and their ability to properly deal with their wash water. The EPA is getting more and more stringent when it comes breaking the laws set in place so to protect the environment from the contaminates that are contained within pressure washing wash water steams. The obvious question is, how do we properly deal with pressure washing waist water? Up to this point there has really been very few options to even address the problem, let alone solve it.  The evacuation and filtration systems on the market have always been far too pricy for the average commercial pressure washing company.  If that were not enough of an issue, the lack of portability also made the practical aspects beyond the scope of reason, let alone affordable. These realities in mind, have made it all the more important to finding some viable solutions. These solutions must include an answer for not only containing wash water from entering the ground, but also reclining, filtering and storing it in a practical and efficient manner that doesn’t price pressure washing services out of the market. Thankfully manufactures of water reclamation equipment are working hard to find viable solutions. They have come a long way in producing wash mats and catch berms that keep the waist water contained, but further there have been some substantial advances in evacuation equipment for reclaiming the wash water streams. However, the real advancements have come to the ability to recycle the wash water altogether, filtering out the particulates down to 15, 10 and even 5 microns. In addition to removing fine particulates, there is now reclamation technology that can coagulate the suspended solids in the water and then gather or flock them together into fine and even heavy particulates that also can be removed. This not enables the wash water to be viable again for use through a pressure washer, but also can eliminate from the wash water a variety of dangerous contaminates such as hydrocarbons and some metals. Cape Cod Cleaning Systems is on of those companies on the leading edge of providing commercial pressure washing companies a host of viable solutions for dealing with their wash water in a effective and affordable way. Their secondary containment products and complete line of reclamation equipment now give the commercial pressure washing industry the peace of mind they need when it comes to protecting the environment, but also the tools they need for continuing and even opening up whole new markets for pressure washing.

  1. Potable water treatment system can be useful in lot of ways, these easily movable water cleaning filters can help in rescue operations and can provide clean and healthy water where required. These filters can be easily movable on mobile vans and can be used where required.

    • Personally, I think he would be better off eethir window cleaning or (and this has proved successful for some entrepreneurs) make an arrangement with a DIY store or large supermarket etc to clean customers cars. Ideally he should team up with a couple of friends/colleagues for this one. The idea is that some customers would jump at the chance of having their car washed (and perhaps vacuumed) while they wait for their wives to do the shopping. Obviously the store would require a cut of the profits but at least there would be a never ending stream of clients.
