    How much psi do we really need????

    I do believe that charts arent perfect but also I do think you might be off when it comes to what a wand will do with 02 or larger jets and 1/4 line

    How much psi do we really need????

    I dont need to make the tweaks, the equipment operation is excellent for cleaning carpet.. getting dirty carpets clean efficiently is not something we struggle with lol if it really really needs it worst care scenario we CRB then 360 the job with the heat at max This is pretty rare.

    How much psi do we really need????

    very much disagree, we clean lots of high quality and not just grazing the surface but to each their own. 500psi with 5 - 015 jets and high temp that wand has plenty of punch... we also do lots of area rugs of all types and I can tell you with those numbers on a thick wool area rug you...

    How much psi do we really need????

    with pressure washing it matters a lot more imo, especially if you run surface tools youll need 4gpm+ imo carpet cleaning not so much, even if you do all rat nasties. 3/8 line is adding a lot of extra weight to your day youll also need larger reel to hold a lot less. loop 150ft of 3/8...

    How much psi do we really need????

    if you get the chance to tour an aero tech in person its an impressive machine... very very smart engineering. All Im saying I would doubt they install a 5cp pump then render it useless with 1/4in line. Ive seen the difference first hand as well with jet sizes, thats why I was a little...

    How much psi do we really need????

    How much psi do we really need????

    the chart is a just a basic chart, and that would be psi at the machine. but still looks like based on this info higher flow can be ran through 1/4 line than you were able to test it at I was wondering that because according to aero tech, as much as 20 flow can be ran and recovered well...

    175 vs CRB Correct Answer

    honestly not really liking the 15in 360 head as much anymore, its too big of a plate. The XL I dont like how huge the motor is, sticks up too high. They have a new rotary coming out soon so Ill prob sell the 360 and get the new one.

    100yr old floor vs groutmaster

    we didnt want to start so aggressive because the floor is so old, installed sometime around early 1900s. Honestly I dont know the exact make up of the bricks, the darker red look like clay once the wax was removed but the lighter ones not so sure. We are going back to finish but it...

    175 vs CRB Correct Answer

    pad was so crushed in some areas swinging the 15in head was really hard, it didnt want to tip back to go right to left. Also the 12in head imo cleans better, more concentrated. the hallway around the corner was so crushed in the traffic lane it was like a half pipe

    175 vs CRB Correct Answer

    nothing out cleans a 360 etc, CRB + wand will get close but some carpets the rotovac is a must.

    175 vs CRB Correct Answer

    the idea of scrubbing is so you can avoid having to use crazy chems to get results. scrubbing then extracting is also faster than heavy pre spray heavy chems and slower extraction imo

    I know the cfm tests Jim ive read countless threads of guys arguing back and forth and some really long winded threads back years ago about how real world cfm is tested at the end of a hose run. What I see as a business owner is that very very rarely do you come across a portable guy who is...
