Wash Water Recycle • Recovery • Filtration

Water is sometimes recycled and reused onsite; for example, when an industrial facility recycles water used for cooling processes or when a pressure washer is combined with our Hydro Vacuum ® system. The term water recycling is generally used synonymously with water reclamation and water reuse.

We offer many options in treatment, recovery or recycling the waste water generated by your pressure washer.

Why recycle?

RPV Hydro Vacuum®

RPV Hydro Vacuum®

The RPV Hydro Vacuum® is a water capture and transfer system. It transfers the water while vacuuming, eliminating the inefficient task of having to continually dump your collection tank. The new RPV is ideal for flood and fire restoration contractors because of the large volume of water that can be removed. It is also useful for anyone wanting to eliminate water runoff at a job site or a pressure washer contractor collecting wastewater.

RGV Gas Powered Hydro Vacuum®

This gas powered vacuum allows you to recover your wash water from your pressure washer over 350' away from the system and automatically pump out to planters, sewer, or a waste recovery tank for proper disposal. The other unique feature is that you can use the gas vac to power 2 Hydro Tek vacuum surface cleaners at the same time in order to double your cleaning speed when cleaning large areas of concrete such as parking structures. This allows you to become EPA compliant and keep the waste stream from your pressure washer from entering the storm drain.

AZV55 / RZVE1 - 5gpm Process Filtration

Protecting the environment from wash water runoff and complying with governmental storm drain regulations is simple, economical and effective with the AZV Series. The AZV vacuum recovery and filtration system provides 7 stages of filtration with up to 5 gpm continuous five micron processing of wastewater where soaps and other chemicals are not used. Wastewater is recovered through a vacuum scupper to eliminate run-off. Recycled water is pumped back to your bulk water tank for reuse to power wash concrete or other flatwork or diverted to landscaping or sewer as permitted. Heavy solids are collected in the V-section of the tank and are easily removed through a quick purge dump valve. When combined with a Hydro Tek SC or SCU Series washer and ProTowWash® trailer or tank skid, you have a complete self-contained mobile wash, recovery, and recycle unit. The system is the choice of professional cleaners to protect the environment, conserve water, and comply with EPA storm drain requirements.
