    Anyone know what is causing this to blow off. Doesn’t matter how tight it is. The hose had 2 metal ends on it but it blew mid job so just used hose clamps for now but something isn’t letting it cycle and don’t know what it is. Checked the route and everything looks ok so I’m confused. Any...

    I would like help growing my business, or at least know why it didn't work. Unbelievable low revenues with no growth.

    Boxxer 421 fresh water invading my waste tank help

    No when I disconnected it. The hose is fine. What I meant about rerouting I meant leave it hooked up at the bottom and put the hose in the actual fresh water tank so it shoots in there instead. Could I just run it with the diverted button off until I get a new solenoid or does it not work that way

    Boxxer 421 fresh water invading my waste tank help

    I disconnected it and it blew water everywhere. Can I run this back to the fresh water tank for a day until I can figure out how to fix it and get the part here or would that damage something. Sorry there’s no place that works on these by me so I’m learning to fix as it breaks

    Clean Storm universal vac booster thoughts?

    Just wondering if anyone has tried this and if it helped any. I run a single corded mytee about 3 times a month for some highrises and cant justify buying a new portable. I upgraded the pump to 220 psi and just would like a boost in recovery. Worth a try or not so much? Thanks for any insight

    Commissioned employees start times

    Is he in sales? If so, is there anything for him to do at 7:30. My experience is commissioned employees should only be expected to do work that makes them money. If he is just comming in at 7:30 to do busy work i wouldn't be in then either. If he is on time to appointments and doing well for...
