How We Invented a New Recycling Method for Commercial Pressure Washing

by Bradley Ballard on April 19, 2017
Find me on:

Maintaining a business means caring for its cleanliness and overall conditions. 

It could be for your parking lot, your building façade, or any other part of the premises.

It doesn’t matter what specific part you want to clean using pressure washing.

The fact still remains that it’s one of the best ways to maintain a professional and welcoming image to customers and clients.

But doesn’t a commercial power washing service use up too much water?

Aren’t we supposed to be conscious of the environmental impact of everything we do?

This is exactly the problem we were faced with in the early days of our company. 

Reclamation vs. Recycling

You may have heard about reclamation. Water reclamation is simply moving dirty water to somewhere else. From there, it is disposed of.

A single commercial pressure washing cycle uses up to 8gal/min. This means any form of reclamation effort just will not work very efficiently.

Recycling, however, allows you to reuse the water over and over again.

This is the more fitting solution.

This is why I knew I had to think of a way to filter and reuse as much water as possible.

Here's how I did it.

Experiment 1)

I first experimented with 10 custom filtration units.

I tried using a sock filter first, but the it got muddy in about 30 minutes.

So that was a no-go.

Experiment 2)

Next, I went with a metal screen, but the solids being filtered out of the water kept clogging up the setup.

"O" for 2.

Experiment 3)

At this point, I discovered that there was actually a way to let water filter itself naturally.

From there, I created the closed-loop system we currently use.

Now we're able to use 75% less water than the standard reclamation process.

The Recycling Advantage

With our system, there is no need to dump the water after use. It simply goes through the recycling process while staying inside the tanks.

How does this help?

There are quite a few reasons, actually. They are:
  • Less impact on the environment
  • Less water usage
  • Lower prices due to lower transportation costs as there is no need to dump used water
  • Allows interior concrete cleaning (something not possible when using reclaimed water)

We're proud what we've done. That's why we're excited to provide commercial pressure washing services to great businesses.
