Not sure what your question was but just an fyi.... in most places it is against the law to dump it outside (lawn/curb). If a code enforcement officer see's you, you will get a fine. Around here code enforcement is all over. When you least expect them.... expect them.

Thanks

Thanks. I was just wondering before because someone who owns a service told me they never ever dump the dirty water down the toilet.

Where do they dump it?

Why not dump it down the toilet? Because it's dirty?

In a drain outside.

Goes to show you what she knows. That drain leads to streams and in the US it is illegal to dump in to streams = it is illegal to dump in to drains.

This law was brought about more from carpet cleaners, cement trucks and car washes but it applies to everyone and you CAN and WILL be fined for it if caught.

Dump it into the toilet so that it gets treated as sewage. Definitely don't be dumping it outside anywhere. After all it's sewage!

And definitely don't dump it outside when the weather is below freezing! Too many phone calls in the morning that the parking lot or sidewalk is covered in frozen water from the cleaning people.

Ideally, we wouldn't have to leave so much waste behind as a result of us just living our lives. I wonder how much better for our environment dumping the water down the toilet is? Doesn't that water have to be purified at some point anyway? I would think that something has to be done with the byproducts of the purified water.

I'm probably just thinking out loud at this point. It'll keep you from getting fined though. That's true.

What about hydrovacs? Anyone ever clog up a toilet doing that during a strip and wax job? I have twice. Fortunately, the first time was while I was working for my former boss.

To avoid major sewer repairs, clean sewer lines regularly and inspect the structure of the pipes. Regular maintenance and clearing the lines prevents root growth inside the pipes. Sewer-line maintenance involves threading a cable through the sewer pipe that cuts through any clogs or tree roots and cleans the sewer pipe to the inner walls.

That's is a good queston. I used to just dump it down the toilet, but maybe there's a better way. Now, I used the swiffer wetjet so there's no need for dumping any water.

You have to reclaim the water and filter it with a 7 stage filter, then boil it and strain out the sediment. After that take it to a local priest and have it blessed, then.... dump it down the toilet

I dump it down the laundry tub drain. I feel like it's the best place to discharge of all that dirt in the mop. Plus it's easy and less nasty to clean than a toilet
