Water reclamation build

Im currently working on building my pressure wash rig and am wanting to build a water reclamation system into it. ( I’ll be posting the build onto the build section once complete)
Im looking for info from guys that have systems.

  1. How big of a tank are you using for storing reclaimed water?
  2. How often are you dumping?

My plan is to modify a 55 gallon drum with a 3 stage vacuum and pipe that to my storage tank ( however big that should be im thinking in the 200 gallon range) then a 55 gallon sand trap tank and from there to a surface cleaner or gutter.

My last question would be on filtering to reuse the wash water. Obviously space is limited but if i reused the wash water most filters wont take out every chemical so the plan then would be to do 2 separate tanks one for the initial wash and one for if i use chemicals and that would reduce needing to dump the reclaimed water as often. Any insight would be much appreciated.


Very interested in this! Excited to see some pictures :slight_smile:

Yes ill make sure to post pics still waiting on parts

I just have to ask, is reclamation mandated where you are located?

Not necessarily mandated. In the neighboring ski town it is. Definitely something that would bring negative attention if not reclaimed and if i recycled i could say im saving water.
