I am just kicking off my screen printing business and can't afford a 1000$ filtration unit to connect to my homemade washout booth. At the moment I have a giant plastic tub that has been catching the washout after it goes through a few coffee filters. I'm keeping the tub going so when I do make a filtration system i can run that water through it again. I have well water/septic tank if that helps at all. I've seen some of the units you can buy are no more than a screen/mesh and then a pump to pump the clean water down the drain. I'm wondering if there are any successfull DIY type systems that really do a good job? The last thing I want to do is pollute. I have only printed water based inks thus far but will be using plastisols in the very near future. Thanks in advance!
