    Ideas for mobile detailer water reclamation system for a bus

    I am a mobile detailer in the process of negotiating a job with a guy who has 4 35' buses. He wants them detailed every month, but his concern is California's water restrictions with run off. Water must not go down the drain, (only rain in the drain) as they say. Does anyone have any ideas how to stop drainage from a 35' bus.

    Park it on the grass
    Beware of those giving suggestions without evidence of their results.

    Park it on the grass as others have said and put a good sealant on the first time. After, you should be able to rinseless wash it section by section after that.

    you can look at a wash berm there a pita and hook up to the wet vac,if there's no grass.I would really neg a good price for those if you are gonna have to rinseless wash them.glad I don't live out there.

    Grass like others have said (or behind the building so nobody sees)

    Use large tarps.
    Lay them on the ground.
    Park the respective bus on the tarps.
    Wet vac liquid off tarp when detail is finished.

    Advice:
    Use a steam cleaner, not a hose and bucket.

    what about just doing a rainless wash instead of traditional?

    Update, we are looking into pool covers, they are large enough 16'x36' Standard-Duty Winter Pool Cover, ITLD1636
    And we can just vacuum the water up after.
