Could you not build you a small shallow "pit" to catch most of it with a drain on top and then pump it into portable plastic tanks for disposal?

What about someone like me.....has 40-50 tractors and "restores" about 4-5 per year in the back yard?

as a diy'er you would probably be exempt, unless you were on an active farm, then it could become a problem. also, if the area you are blasting in becomes contaminated with oil and grease, and the property was sold, a soil test would reveal this and require a clean-up. (a soil clean up gets mighty spendy). for me to install a blast booth and deal with the liquid , would be cost prohibitive. the blast booth would need to be osha approved, a licensed waste hauler would be required to do the haul out, haz mat forms and bills of lading, along with all the paperwork i would need to keep here, just way too much hassle.

For my small use at the house I could see building a wash pad behind my shop (where I would also paint too) that was constructed like a pad at one of those self-serve carwashes. It would all drain to the middle. I could install one of those plastic tanks under the drain and pump it out into a portable plastic tank when necessarry. Think that would work?? It just sounds like it would be the way to go to clean oily, greasy tractors and pull the paint off in one swipe without worrying about silicosis and fumes from the stripper/oven cleaner I use now.

Just to add my 2 cents, it seems to me a guy could easily build a pit to catch the run off. It could be lined with plastic or if you had the money, concrete. You could then allow the water to evaporate and the sediment to dry and then haul away. There would be the issue of some evaporation of any chemicals, but that is probably minimal and occurs under current methods anyway.

I would be concerned about water and what ever media is used getting into places it should not be and then having to do a teardown and possibly a rebuild. Well, hope I didn't spend more than my 2
