    new and need advice

    Small rural areas are harder to get built up IMO. I'm in one! But marketing is a bigger factor than the big machine. Don't bite off to much! I started with a porty and my P/U with a cap....wish I had researched it more..

    Taking days off...

    Make hay while the sun shines! There will be time for laying around later. I go offshore commercial fishing and when I get home I clean/run the carpet biz. I don't fish as hard as I use to I will admit that, but hey, I'll be 52 in 3 days. I still make the young bucks look bad!

    Call backs I have seen were wicking. 175 with an encap solution seems to be the quickest fix. Sometimes you will have to HWE or treat a spot like urine that NOBODY knew was there.

    Carpet or Area Rug Cleaning?

    Rug Cleaning is the bigger bucks but time consuming to clean them right. It would be wise to know what you are doing when cleaning orientals.... not a big deal when you get some knowledge.

    Porty have no water pressure? ?

    When I hook up the TM to a custys garden spickot I usually run the water for a minute before I hook up the hose. If it is discolored or I see anything in the water I put a filter on the spickot. I got my filter from Wal Mart RV section.

    Longest hose run with ez 25/45?

    I have run 400' with no problem with my Diablo. Masterblend states it can run 700' . Dual wand I was not so impressed with running 2 shots of 200'. You had to keep wand lips down on both wands or you would loose the pull. No problem till you have to put wand down to move furniture, but I...

    ok , when it gets right down to it, how is your TM different from mine ??

    Different? Mine is red. Only difference is in performance with TM"s. More horse power on some, bigger heaters, and some have bigger blowers . Kind of like taking a little spitfire up against a Vortex. Which do you think would have better performance of the 2 TM's

    Vacuum cleaners

    I use Windsors, have a Versamatic and an XP model. Bought them used, cheap! Beat the snot out of them and had to replace 1 cord, 1 brush. Hard to believe they are still kickin' arse. I would not hesitate to buy another one.
