    Some time less vaccum is better more vaccum is overkill

    So the harder the blower sucks, the more resistance it creates along the hose line? And the more resistance there is, the less available vacuum power there is? My 33 blower has the vac relief set to 17 Hg, but it runs at about 8 Hg with an open 2 inch hose at 100 feet. I guess that leaves me...

    Loss of vacuum on long hose runs TM vs. Portable

    You've had both a TM and an ETM setup, right? What does 2 LX motors feel like at the end of 150 feet? Even my 33 blower sucks the blood out of my hand at 150 feet, I just can't see 2 electric motors matching that.

    Loss of vacuum on long hose runs TM vs. Portable

    Loss of vacuum on long hose runs TM vs. Portable

    This is why I am considering the etm life. I like the Vortex lite, because I do a fair amount of high rise work.

    Loss of vacuum on long hose runs TM vs. Portable

    After 18 months with a TM, the downtime it has caused is making me consider the etm life. My average run is 150 feet.

    Anybody ONLY do carpet cleaning?

    I have been offering only carpet cleaning for about 3 months the now. No upholstery, rugs, tile, etc. I love it. I love saying 'no' to every person that just wants one area rug cleaned. I love saying no to bending over furniture for hours at a time. I love not having to ask a million...

    Encap residential dog urine

    I really like the idea of using bonnet cleaning and a shop vac/spotter with a water claw for urine treatments. @RobWhat are your thoughts on prespotting with Unchained and a black light (sorry it's a Hydramaster not TMF ) and using a water claw before a proper pad-encap cleaning? (Vac...

    Kunkle Valve or Spring loaded relief valve?

    Thanks for the advice. I have a SS waste tank. My runs are either 100 or 150, but I sometimes go to 200. The suction is noticeably less with each 50 foot section. Considering using a kunkle to preserve my lift out to longer runs.

    Vacaway chemicals

    I asked Steve from Vacaway. He said they do not use any butyls or optical brightners. What other specific chemicals should I ask him about?

    Kunkle Valve or Spring loaded relief valve?

    Do you have to adjust it for each run depending on the type of carpet? Shaggy carpets don't lock down as much as a Berber.

    Why not just sell jobs and sub them out to the dedicated carpet cleaners in your town? You'll learn and earn at the same time.

    Anybody ONLY do carpet cleaning?

    Strong oxidizer. Apply lightly, wait and see if it starts fading. Rinse and repeat. If that doesn't work you will need to use a reducing agent and a steam iron. If that doesn't work, then it is permanent. The fact is that some stains just won't come out. My go to line is "if this doesn't work...
