    New Portable

    I’m looking for some advice please. I’m buying a new portable only I can’t figure out which one is best. I’m thinking Vortex Lite, Jaguar 8.4 or Airflex storm? Any feedback appreciated. Thanks. Frank

    Glides for wand and fittings

    I’m running a Hydramaster 427 which has the air cooled engine installed in it. I have an old HM Max 450 D sitting idle with broken engine mountings which I’d love to get back in action but don’t know where to start, hasn’t been used in 8 years I’d say, such a waste. Anyway that is for getting...

    Glides for wand and fittings

    Hi there, Hoping someone can help me. I’m looking for glides for this Hydramaster wand and the fitting for the lever. Where can I get these? I’ve no idea the name or serial number only that it’s a Hydramaster. Thank you. Frank

    New wand

    Hi all, look to buy a new wand. The one in the photo is my current one. Looking for recommendations, also considering a rotary machine for commercial work and rental properties. Very hard to make a decision when you can’t test them first. Regards. Frank

    Cleaning Cinema seat

    Apologies for taking so long to get back to you about the seats. I tried steam only but no effect. I then tried extracting using a soap. It cleaned up better but not perfect. It’s Easter break and kids are off school so I have to wait to go back after the holidays to hook up the truck mount and...

    Cleaning Cinema seat

    Great suggestion about the 2 quotes. The worst part is just the 1st few feet so they might be happy with that [emoji106]

    Cleaning Cinema seat

    Guys, really appreciate all the feed back on cleaning the seats. I’m going to try a few of them on Tuesday morning so I’ll revert back with the results. Going to try hot water extraction with no soap on the 1st seat and see how I go. Never thought I’d say it but I’m looking for to cleaning...

    Cleaning Cinema seat

    Hi Guys, I’m looking for some advice on cleaning these. A company was in cleaning them a month ago but client not happy, they are in poor shape. Any advice would be appreciated. Also they want the curtains cleaned as well, 30ft high, I’m not sure what to do but hate turning down work.

    Per-scent

    Hi all, just wondering does anyone know if the product Perscent is still made. I used to use it when I was in Ocean City MD about 20 years ago. It was highly concentrated stuff, came in Cherry, Orange and Lemon. I’d love to get my hands on some if anyone had an idea, regards. Frank

    HM Boxer 427 Temp Control

    I was back at it again today, weather has been terrible over here and I haven’t any place to get good cover from the elements. When the water box is full and I turn off the fresh water pump, the water gets very hot which is great however as soon as I turn back on the water pump it just keeps on...

    HM Boxer 427 Temp Control

    I went and did my job today but before I started I gave the valves a few light taps with a spanner and I started getting hot water in the water box, not sure if it was coincidence or did the tapping dislodge something. I’ll give it a proper descaling and see how I go. After I turn off my machine...

    HM Boxer 427 Temp Control

    This is incredibly helpful, really appreciate you taking the time to respond. I know there is definitely water being dumped back into the waste tank. I’ve also noticed that the overflow on the water box is dumping a lot of water back into the fresh water tank. I’ll have a look in the morning and...

    HM Boxer 427 Temp Control

    Thank you for the speedy reply, really appreciate it. It's an air cooled engine alright, water cooled one gave up the ghost. I'm living in Ireland and unfortunately I don't have any places to bring the machine, no one familiar with them. I'll try the Thermal valve and the high pressure solenoid...

    HM Boxer 427 Temp Control

    Hi there, hoping someone can help. I'm getting little or no temperature from my machine, fluctuates and unreliable, I think my temperature control is faulty. Is there a way of bypassing the electronics completely on the machine so I can have constant hot water? Thanks. Frank
