Can you rinse a sprayer like a permagreen or skid sprayer at a carwash.I know your not just supposed to rinse it on the ground.I think carwashes have in ground holding tanks that they have to have pumped i wouldnt thin it would go to sewers

The outside of the unit, yes. I do mine. The guy I bought it from has been spraying for a living since 91 and he told me he does his all the time too.

Here in Michigan we have regulation 637 that covers proper rinse procedures and facilities. I don't have my literature handy, but I find it hard to believe that a public car wash would qualify as a pesticide rinse facility. I would imagine fines could be quite high.

I think some car washes recycle their water and others do drain to the public sewer.

I would check with your state regulations before risking fines and/or litigation.

And, concerning those tank cleaners, are you sure they "neutralize" the active/dangerous ingredients or do they just neutralize the corrosive (pH) effects of the pesticide.

They have an oil seperator, some recycle the water, also bad for buisness
