One more pic of spec label. If you cant see hours , its 133. Oh, it says 20 hp on the sticker. That is incorrect. It is a 24 hp Honda. It was a last minute factory change. So basically I got a free upgrade.Thats it
"Power Wash wastewater cannot be discharged into the storm sewer if it contains pollutants or cleaning compounds. Cleaning will include buildings, vehicles, and even flat work. State and local authorities can fine anyone who allows wastewater into the storm sewer."
And from Cleanfax, a surprising disclosure:
"It is up to the cleaning professional recommending exterior cleaning solutions to fully understand the steps they or a hired professional must take to avoid violating the Clean Water Act or they’ll put the building’s property owner at risk of serious fines.
That’s right, contrary to popular belief, the responsibility of water reclamation when cleaning property exteriors is not in the hands of the cleaning professional or the pressure washing company … it rests with the property owner.
Property owners can face fines of up to $50,000 a day if the water used in a pressure washing project contains dangerous chemicals or is allowed to contaminate the storm drain system."
So, do you guys have to have reclaim systems? Not necessarily - but if your lack of a system results in your customer paying a fine like that, you can pretty much kiss that customer goodbye.
definitely the only way to go. Especially if your in any drought areas. Also the storm drain issues mentioned above, customers with nice landscapes who dont want mud puddles in their nice flower beds, restaurants with outdoor patio areas, government contracts where liability is a huge factor... they dont even have to close the sidewalk down.
we are in a very green state so its a big deal here
Just as the title says I want to expand into pressure or power washing for our TMF academy. Any recommendations appreciated. After doing my research I find I need to answer these questions;
1) Hot water or cold water?
2) Electric start"?
3) How many feet hose?
4) How much psi?
5) Stationary for trailer/truck mounted or portable?
6) Belt or coupler?
8) Surface cleaner brand & size?
10) Top brands?
