How Does a Water Recovery System Work?

A water recovery system is designed to contain and clean water to make it safe for discharge according to environmental laws. These are often sold as "closed systems" made to work together with a pressure washer system or other water application so the same water be re-used. This closed water recovery system begins with containment, using tubes or hoses that hug the ground to trap the dirty water. The water is sucked into a containment unit, cleaned, then released into a water tank which holds the water until it is reused. These closed water recovery systems can operate quite efficiently, processing up to 20 gallons per minute. Water recycling systems are environmentally-friendly in several ways, especially in drought-stricken areas such as Texas and California, where water conservation is a key issue.
