Roof Cleaning Tech Water Recovery

We have several ways to recover water. We have a full water  recovery unit and discharge vacuums. Discharge vacuums make it a lot easier to keep the water away from storm drain. The  water can not go down the storm drains that is the Law.

Here is some of our discharge vacuums for  homes or houses. Below that is a full water recovery unit for the Bigger jobs or  commercial use

1. General Best Management Practices (BMPs) and Preparation of Work Area
What should I do prior to conducting a job?
The BMPs presented below are intended to help you comply with local and state regulations that prohibit wasteater
from entering the storm drain system. The following BMPs must be followed by all mobile businesses or outdoor
activities of a fixed business that generate wastewater, regardless of the type of surface to be cleaned or cleaning
operation to be performed:
• Evaluate the chemicals and compounds used for cleaning and reduce or eliminate the use of those that contain
solvents, heavy metals, high levels of phosphates, or very high/very low pH that exceeds the local sewering
agency requirements.
• Walk through the area where the cleaning will occur prior to the start of the job and identify all area drains, yard
drains, and catch basins where wastewater could potentially enter the storm drain system.
• Block/seal off identified drains or catch basins using sand bags, plugs, rubber mats, or temporary berms.
• Collect all trash and debris from the project area and place them in a trash bin for disposal.
• Sweep all surface areas prior to cleaning to minimize the amount of suspended solids, soil, and grit in
• Identify the wastewater disposal option that will be used. Whether you are discharging to landscaping or the
sanitary sewer, it is necessary that you meet all the requirements identified below.
• Conduct mobile washing in accordance with all operating instructions provided by the equipment supplier.
Maintain equipment in good working order and routinely check and test all safety features.
What methods can be used to collect wastewater at a site?
There is no specific containment method that must be used for wastewater collection/diversion. However, the system
must be adequately designed so that the wastewater does not flow into an on-site or off-site storm drain inlet. All
mobile and existing businesses should use one of the following methods, regardless of the surface to be cleaned or
the type of cleaning operation to be performed:
• Portable containment areas can be made from waterproof tarps, heavy-duty plastic, or rubber matting equipped
with berms to prevent wastewater from running into storm drain inlets or discharge off-site. Materials that can be
used for berms include sand bags or water-filled tubing. Whatever containment material is used, it must seal
tightly to the ground so that no wastewater can pass under or over the berms.
• When power washing smaller pieces of equipment, containment devices to use may include portable vinyl
swimming pools, plastic 55-gallon drums on casters, and flat metal or plastic containment pads.
• Depending on the volume of wastewater generated, it may be necessary to use a pump system, which may
range in size from a wet-dry vacuum to a sump pump. A natural basin from which to pump can also be set up by
establishing a slightly sloped containment area.
