FiltaBund Washdown Containment

  • Do you operate a business that regularly washes plant, vehicles or boats on site?
  • Are you aware that water from vehicle, plant and boat washdown facilities is considered to be trade effluent?
  • Are you aware that trade effluent discharged to the foul water drain requires a consent from the sewage company?
  • Are you aware that trade effluent discharged to ground water or a water course, including via a surface water drain not connected to the sewer requires a permit from the Environment Agency?
  • Are you aware that the cost of discharge to a water course, groundwater or sewer is proportional to the quantity of trade effluent discharged and the concentration of materials contained in the effluent?
  • Are you paying high fees for the disposal of effluent in your current business operation?
  • Are you a responsible company that strives to meet its environmental responsibilities?
  • Did you know that failure to comply with the regulations relating to the discharge of trade effluent can result in significant fines to your business?
  • FiltaBund (patent pending) may be the cost effective answer to your washdown water management needs.

FiltaBund Washdown Containment

SEL has worked with FiltaBund to develop the FiltaBund Total System Solution (FTSS) and the FiltaBund GeoSack System.

The systems are designed to capture, process and recover contaminated water resulting from the power washing of vehicles (including buses, vans, trucks, lorries and cars), boats, plant and machinery.

The contaminated water can contain significant quantities of silt and traces of oils, detergent, biocides and other harmful substances.

The FTSS system collects and processes this contaminated water in a bund positioned under the equipment being washed and the GeoSack system is a stand-alone processing facility that can receive contaminated water from a small existing or installed drainage sump.
