Well well well.  What do we do with our dirty water, millions of gallons of it every year.  I have heard customers complain of their prior carpet cleaning company dumping the dirty water in their yard.  I have heard of secret levers pulled on random quiet roads releasing the water on the street as you drive down the road.  I have heard it all.  I guess the safest might be to dump in your own septic system when you get home, but what about the days you are a long way from home. Hows do our chemicals react to yards, grass, retention ponds.....Im not actually sure.  Let the lies fly on this issue....Im cant wait to hear.   And most of you know you dump wherever you can get rid of it.....
I can remove more spots than you can.

An acceptable method of wastewater disposal is to discharge the water into a municipal sewage treatment system after first filtering out solid material such as carpet fiber. Access to the sanitary system can be obtained through a toilet, laundry drain, car wash drain, R.V. dump, etc.
 
Years ago CarpetClean (National Co.) was fined $50k for dumping in a park during the rain...
 
Or use a APO..

we have had this topic many times over the years...what do you do when your waste water is full in the middle of a job???? leave and go to the car wash????

btw

If the coin wash guy catches you dumping he gets pissed.
I know it has happened to me...

where are the sani dumps in and around the GTA there are none....RV dumps?? none

so where do you dump the water in the street. what else can one do with it...Just put a stocking foot over the end to catch the crap.

if you're using natural products how bad can it be... no worse than washing your car in your drive way, gas/oil spills in the road.

I say if they wanted a cleaner to do better there would be more options.

oh I guess I could drive it to the local dump...they charge by weight...what do you think 100 gallons would cost???? thats over 1 Ton...



if you think the customer is worried about it...you ask them to let you dump in their toilet...most will say no, just dump it at the end of the drive.

for now...bombs away

Bombs away is not the answer. your children and grand children get to inherit the world we leave them.

I used to " bombs away " 15 years ago. Not any more, it's just not the right thing to do. NOW 99.9 % goes into RV dump site at the gas station. Once in a great while when I'm 4 feet away from the door and tank fills up , the ground get a few gallons just to get the job done . It's not right but....I'm human

Polluting the rivers is on our shoulders. We can not have a " bombs AWay " attitude IMO . We need to try.... to comply

Carwash. It akways amazed me a powerwash company can wash 20 tractor trailors and let it go down the catch basin same with washing your vechiles.  But i think the problem lies with some cleaners who cleanup fuel spills. sewerbacks ups etc and  just dump it.  the problem years ago was not with the water but all the lint etc that would not degrade .  Now with all the filters etc you don't have that problem.  I stiil can see when someone is in town with an antique tm as there is always a pile of lint by the water grate where they dump.

So whats your answer???? go out of business????my children starve???I end up on the street??

I hate to here the bull when we know WE ALL DO IT!

what is in the water...some dry soil...hair, skin, and a little soap residue.

If I was doing 1 job a month then no problem...all water gets process regardless of where it goes.

so if you think you're going to get on you soap box and preach your holier than thou crap...guess what I just burnt the soap box down.
     

I will not sit here and lie.... I catch the lint in the waste basket catcher...I put a stocking foot on the end of the dirty water hose...and I open the drain valve.

which I think is A LOT more environmentally friendly than the oil that gets dumped down the drain from someguys oil change.

preach all you want but you know the truth

I never have dumped in the street.. It goes right to the lakes..

Biodegradability simply means that the organic material will, in the presence of the right organisms, be reduced to a simpler organic substance. During the decomposition, the organisms consume oxygen from the water. As a result, the presence of too much biodegradable material in a stream can rob oxygen necessary for fish and plant life.
 
 
If you have to dump at job site.. Which many of us have to do i  run my hose far from the street or lake to a bush or tree..With permission.. no harm done..
