Dry Chemical Fleet Washing

I have the opportunity to bid on Truck washing for a fleet at a local terminal, but there is a hangup. Due to the fact that they have a gravel lot, they say it has to be done with a dry chemical that you apply and then squeege off. They say that they can be hevily fined if they let the run-off from the trucks seep in to the gravel ground.

SO, I have two questions:

1. Does anyone know anything about this Dry Chemical to use in fleet washing, where to get it, how much it costs, etc?

2. Does anyone have any ideas on setting up a portable water reclamation system that could be used on these gravel lots, its effectiveness and possible cost to put one together?

Thanks

Jay, I posted there and at www.propowerwash.com. I just figured I would try to get as much exposure to the question as possible.

If I can figure out what this chemical is, I have the potential to get about 14 trucks in one terminal and probably about as many in a terminal about 2 hours away. This could provide just the boost that I will need to leave my regular job and do Lawn Care/Power Washing full time....

If you find anything, please let me know....

Total,
Gotcha! Sounds like you have it all together. Did you call the good folks at DELCO: www.dcs1.com If they don't have the answer... then there is none!

Nope, but I will give it a try. I would like to find the dry chemical (foam chemical, whatever) rather than have to invest into reclamation system right now.

They(the trucking comapny) are mis informed.A gravel lot is a God send to a fleet washing company,as long as, the waste water doesn't run into a storm sewer.
My buddy Michael is right do some research on the pressure washing BBS's out there to get better answers.
