How the Dulux EnviroWash System works

The units are easy to use and come with an easy to follow instructional DVD.


The units are made up of two parts - the sink and a separate filtration tank. The units work by separating paint washings into clear water and solid paint. The spray gun is used to wash rollers, brushes, paint trays, pots and anything else that has been used in the painting process. Once the unit is full, treatment chemicals are used to separate the solid matter and water from the paint washings. After 1-6 hours*, clear water remains in the top of the tank and paint sludge is left at the bottom. Clear water can be recycled into other trade related applications, or released onto flat grassy areas and gardens. Remaining paint sludge is filtered, ready for removal and drying. Once residue is dry, it is ready to be disposed of as non-hazardous solid waste.

 * Please note: Treatment times vary depending on the capacity size of the unit and concentration of paint washings. Typically, 450 litres of paint water discharge produces 5kg of solid paint residue.
