What do I do with waste water?

Well let’s look at what the waste water is; Compressed air holds a lot of water vapour, and once that vapour becomes cooled into a liquid (condensate) what’s created is a dirty, oily watery mixture that can’t simply be sent down the drain and is regulated under the 1991 Water Resources Act.

Since the condensate is approximately 95% water and 5% oil, condensate management systems (oil/water separators) have been developed to reduce or eliminate the amount of oil in the condensate. Once the water has been through the separator it should be then piped into the foul sewage system.
