environmentally friendly also means never having say you're sorry..
for NOT keeping paint chips and wash-out from getting to the storm drain.
Got a shop-vac ??
a VacuBerm, VacuBoom, PuddleSucker, VacuDam, works fine,
some with a simple shop-vac.

It is illegal to allow ANYthing but rain-water into the storm drain..
even if the water "dried-up" before it gets there..
The next rain-storm can flush it the rest of the way to the storm drain, YOU are liable.
Think Twice, clean once, stay profitable.

Yeah, they are very strict nowadays. We recently had our pool drained since the chemistry was too far off to fix. Our pool guy said he had to pull a permit to drain the pool into the gutter. The next day after the we got the permit, someone from the city came out to test the water and give the ok.

the Enviro-Friendly flag.. in your marketing

Too bad that is really only useful for commercial jobs on a concrete slab. I have never had water from power washing make it to a drive or road.
:lol::lol::lol:

cheah.. Don't buy what you don't need, in those rural settings

..but.. for the rest..
don't miss an opportunity to get jobs easier..
carry the "enviro-Friendly" flag in your marketing.
If you buy WashWaterControl tools, they WILL make you more money..
Bring 'em with, and "show people" they are ready for action.
And take pictures for your portfolio when you do use them.

I am 90% residential work and berming and diversion is all we really every need but I do have a pump system and covers when a commercial job calls for it. Haven't invest in filtration yet as the need hasn't arisen.. but it may in the near future.
