    Open the lid on the waste tank and you will have the same problem. Too big a tank is the problem or a leak somewhere.

    Depends on suction of Machine. If you got at least dual 3 stage motors go 500 psi. The more psi the longer to dry.

    Advertising, Pricing, Salesmanship, work ethics, Business minded. You can be great at what you do, but that does not mean you know how to run a business.

    Truvox hydromist 55/400

    I never heard of one or used one but read some on it. Not too much specs for it. Doesn't say how powerful the 2 motors are, or how many watts the heater has. If you can find out that info then you can compare it better to other machines.

    How many times do you stroke it?

    I be pulling the trigger on a pull stroke and sucking it up as soon as you spray, Then a dry up stroke to get in position for the next pull stroke. Making a V pattern. At about 400 PSI, dries in a couple of hours or so. Sometimes 3 hours. Carpets get clean, never have complaints.

    Mytee Escape or PE500 ?

    I went from a ChemTex TM to Electric. My setup is a Sandia Sniper 80-3500H and a MyTee 7303 LX Booster. Good power and heat. I hardly ever use more than 110 ft of hose so suctions is good. Can go to 150ft no problem. If you go farther than 150ft another booster would be good but I've never...

    I hate f*#!%#g with portables.

    My TM machine was strong and much heat but seemed to require much maintenance. Some hose burst once a month. Oil change was a pain. It went thru a lot of belts and couplers, The dema valve would get stuck and clog, The over flow shut off valve would not ever work right. Small stuff but all the...

    Protecting floors when using portable carpet extractor

    Longer hose. Leave machine outside while cleaning. 50 to 75 ft hose will cover most homes. Todays 2 motor portable systems have the power for that long of hose reach. A 2" hose will give u better suction.

    Sandia sniper on generator

    He is only running two 110v power cords. So the 4000 generator would be the smallest he should run. To be safe he could step it up to the 6,000 watt, that would give him more than enough for his system. The 10,000 and 15,000 generators are for an Electric Truck Mount system with electric heaters.

    Steam cleaning can suck out the deep down dirt. VLM Foam / dry cleaning uses a chemical to dissolve the dirt.
