Environmental awareness of the high pH hazard caused when mixing concrete, grouts and cements with wash water has increased in recent years. Containing and accumulating the wash water mix creates an even more significant health hazard to site workers. Wash water can be either treated and discharged on-site or shipped off-site as a waste product. Our BlueRinse Concrete Washout System has been developed to help workers on all sizes of construction sites treat, recycle and re-use their wash water to avoid hazardous storage and costly accumulation.
The BlueRinse range is continually expanding to suit new applications but the fundamental principles & benefits remain the same:
- Capture wash water to avoid direct discharge to environment.
- Separate solids from water to minimise pH reaction.
- Recycle the water for reuse.
- Treat high alkalinity with pH/BLUE (no CO2 or acidics).
- Enhances operator safety.
- Unlimited wash capacity.
- Keeps site tidy.
- Hire or Purchase options.

Concrete Wash Water is the real Hazard and Danger to the Environment
Our BlueRinse Concrete Washout System has been developed to help workers on all sizes of construction sites treat, recycle and re-use their wash water to avoid hazardous storage and costly accumulation.
Many professionals in the construction industry still mistakenly consider the solid waste from concrete wash out as the hazard, when it is in fact the water.
Visit our Products page to see our full range of concrete wash water waste solutions, designed to offer peace of mind, protect the environment and suit your individual site policies and regulations.
Concrete Wash Water Waste formed by the interaction of fresh concrete with water or the interaction of water with reactivated concrete. Reactivation is caused by either cutting or crushing of the concrete causing a fresh surface of concrete to be exposed and become wetted, causing the water to become highly alkaline.
Note: Calcium Oxide (free lime in concrete) plus water forms Calcium Hydroxide (highly alkaline).
A pH limit of between 6 and 9 usually won’t cause any damage when released into the environment, but the release of untreated concrete wash water into surface or ground water can have catastrophic effects.
