    I don't use a pump-out system. Honestly usually very discreetly on their grass. I do a lot of rural areas and people have big lots with lots of area to dump. I dump a lot in my own yard and where I do the grass is the greenest lushest you would ever see. That's why I have a 100 gallon recovery . But again usually right at the home on their grass and you would never tell very stealth lol

    if the water has "POO" in it from an extraction, I go to the nearest RV dump site and dump there., If it is just regular dirty water from cleaning carpets, I dump on my front lawn and fertilize it daily. I have to mow my lawn every 4-5 days because of how fast it grows from my special fertilizer.

    It should be going to a sewage treatment plant or sanitary sewar. You do not want to dump sewage on the lawn or discreet area.

    Far from category one sewage water. This is from general carpet and upholstery cleaning dirty water. I wouldn't be sucking up sewage with my TM. Not like it's seeping or leeching into drinking water or lakes and streams. I would go to a car wash way before looking around for sewage treatment plant or sanitary sewer. Don't use any phosphates nor is there any around in cleaners from homeowners anymore.

    So you are saying that you are cleaning carpets that have been in contact with sewage water? If so it is considered grossly un sanitary and needs to be removed and disposed of. I am not aware of any cat 1 sewage only cat 3 maybe the laws in Canada are different then they are in the u.s. do you have permission from the car wash owner to be dumping on his property? There was an article a while ago of a guy who had charges filed against him for dumping in a car wash I believe it was in Florida.

    No I'm not saying I clean carpets that have come in contact with sewage. Okay so maybe my discharge water is Cat 2 and I don't dump my tank for 2 days now it just changed to black water cat 3 that's nasty. I believe in Florida it has been illegal for over 25 years to discharge your water anywhere except by pump outs or sewage treatment areas. That car wash you mentioned I think that's a joke because I can take my horse trailer full of piss and shit and pressure wash it out right in there. Maybe not in Florida , but here in my home town not a problem. Again I'm in rural Manitoba and it is a lot easier to just dump right there on their grass or even my grass. I have seen guys dump right into storm drains and yes this is punishable by a huge fine. But again there is no health risk with cat 2 water discharged imediaitly after completing job onto an area where no person is incontact with it . Unless you have serious immune concerns and you perhaps roll around in the grass right where I just dumped. I'm not running a septic tank cleaning business. And not doing sewer backup cleanups either. Would I just let my discharge water go where ever no , most times at the end of day bang I water my grass or tree's with my recycled water wow that's sounds like it's even enviro friendly lol

    I like to go down the clean outs as well. I had to wait 2 hours for Roto Rooter to unclog the drain first.It was a high end area and the lawns were not and option.

    In my neighbors yard.

    I park my van across the street from my house at a vacant.

    Guys really get their panties in a bunch about this. What are you dumping, dirty mop water or toxic waste?

    Definitely a sanitary sewer only for any waste tank water. Their is definitely an environmental impact from the chemicals/cleaning solutions that we use, and it does matter were we put it. More importantly you don't want to end up on the evening news.
