    Looks like a dust downer to me. Its for when you vacuum vents, it sprays a mist inside the vac hose so it doesnt go straight to your blower filter.

    Clean it up and put it on eBay.

    That's important to some, useless to us.

    It can be useful when doing a lot of dry vacuuming. Make sure the valve is set for a very low spray or you will go through all your water in a very short time. I've had one in the truck for a few years and I never use it.

    as they said no real use for a tool like that if you take other simple precautions. And I don't know how many guys use the TM hose for dry vacuuming. My machine has a valve that diverts water to the waste tank right after it comes out of the hose so If I really need to dry Vac with the Tm I just do that.. It's just something they thought up to get some newby with a lot of extra cash to buy IMO

    It would probably be good for air duct cleaning, don't you think?
