For us new guys, who do care about the enviorment, and dont want to get in trouble with the EPA, but also dont have thousands of dollars at this time to spend on a vaccuum system, what are some "less expensive" ways to accomplish this for smaller jobs.

Also is this only required when doing flat work? For example if I was doing a house, deck or fence thats surronded by grass, do I still need to reclaim water??

You can use 2" layflat hose filled with water or sand
to create a burm. Then suck that water up with a
sump pump.

Or better yet the Vacuboom.

We have a new unit that is more economical also
The H2O Boy Vac unit for $1188
(Call this month and order one for $999!

The Water Base can be used with any kind of wash water generated from washing trucks, heavy equipment, parking lots/garages to... the list goes on...

The Water Base, used in conjunction with our or any mobile recycle system, truly gives you a 'closed loop' system with zero discharge.

Simple maintenance and trouble free operation along with our full one year warranty makes.

We evaluate everything on a per job basis. Sand bags, sump pumps, and oils socks, berms, etc are all inexpensive ways to be compliant. It just all depends on what you are cleaning and what you are using.

Like Doug mentioned, every job is different.

You can use simple things like sand bags, shop vacs, sand snakes,etc..... so that nothing gets into the storm drains.

There will be a lot of water lost due to absorption and evaporation when cleaning and the runoff is going onto concrete or asphalt or off into the grass so it will not be like a high-flow garden hose running 10 gallons per minute. The further away the water pickup point is, the less the flow as the concrete, asphalt or dirt will absorb a lot of it so there will be less to deal with in the end.

If you are not sure of a specific situation, post about it or post some pictures and we can help you with the situation.

Most areas will have water flowing in a general direction unless it is in very bad shape so further away you can make a dam and collect it there and pump it to where you need it to go or to your system or what you are going to do with it.
