    No pressure

    That's a CAT pump right? It should just get pressure right away almost. When mine run dry for whatever reason it hardly takes them a few secs to get back to full pressure, maybe sometimes I open bypass a little but that's just my way. And it should be able to run dry for a while too.

    Van's front tire wear on inside. Is it common ?

    And yes you should get alignment fully loaded as that is how your vehicle will be most of the time. At least that's how mine is but first make sure all your suspension components are good. Some shops won't inspect they'll just align or should I say attempt to align like that.

    Van's front tire wear on inside. Is it common ?

    As for the original post, that's just what Ford Econolines do. Their suspension is different that Chevy Express. Almost all of the ones I've seen or driven eventually develop that problem.

    Ford Express? You mean Chevy right? Rear tires won't wear from the inside, if you need shocks the tread pattern will be up and down on wear, but you shouldn't see it in the rear if loaded. It's usually in the front where you can tell

    The hot water cleaning only is just a gimmick carpet sales people use to sell the carpet as easy to maintain or cheap to clean....I mean who washes their clothes with water only? Who washes anything with water only for that matter...

    Bruin 2 pressure issue

    Temp should be going higher if lower pressure unless it's dumping water to regulate temp

    Looking for area rug cleaner - Houston Texas area

    Ok. I wouldn't be able to help with that kind of rug but I can clean the other carpets. I'd have to go see them though. Any particular reason why they'd need disinfecting?

    saphire scientific 570

    Does that one have a water box? Have you opened waste tank when it's doing that? Water could be going out the bypass into waste tank or not enough water pressure from inlet or belts slipping or maybe one of the high pressure hoses is breaking down and needs replacing

    What exactly do you mean by trusted household carpet cleaner? Person or chemical?

    Bruin 2 pressure issue

    That's odd. If you have the chemical pick up shut off it should be fine. Even if pump gets air in somehow it tends to work its way out when your working. Maybe the clutch on the pump slip...I'm not sure if that can even happen but worth checking. So once it drops to 400 psi it wont go higher if...

    Bruin 2 pressure issue

    Did you take the spring out of the pressure regulator. Sometimes they come with one you have to take off. Your pump maybe wasn't the issue. Maybe blockage in the lines or pressure manifold where the regulator goes. Maybe dumping water out of the bypass or belt slipping and not turning the pump...

    How much area does it take you to fill your recovery tank?

    Yeah sounds about right. Sometimes they market the tanks as 60 but they're less...at least to where the float valve is. I usually go by time instead of areas, because you can make a lot of passes in a bad area and not so many on a brand new area. so for me it's about an hour, of course that...

    Prochem performer 405

    I have 2 405's and yes they have small issues here and there but they're old machines...that's to be expected. I'd say as long as the engine is in good working condition you should be fine. I fixed all my own stuff, there's plenty of info out there.

    Prochem performer 405

    When you're cleaning you won't be using pre heaters at all. So maybe at the start the temp will be cooler but then it should get to working temp just fine given that exhaust heat exchanger is working properly. Pre heaters don't just "plug up" unless float valve in waste tank is not shutting...
