    How do I properly set chemical flow?

    I have a typical gph flow meter on my tm. I've never really understood the right way to set it though. Everything I use always says "meter to 2gph" and that's fine. But the way it's been explained to me was you put whatever tool you're using on then set the flow based on that. But with that...

    Does Hydrocide Xtreme Go Bad?

    Happy Saturday to you all! I have about 30 gallons of hydrocide xtreme in a barrel that I know I'm never going to use over the course of my foreseeable cleaning career. I want to sell it but don't want to be selling a product that no longer works to someone who doesn't know any better. It's...

    Mytee Air Hog Question

    Hi all, just wondering how long of a hose run you can get from using the Mytee air hog as a standalone unit. Most houses I've done don't need more than 50 feet to get from the base of the stairs to the farthest bedroom upstairs. Is this achieveable or do I need to bring it upstairs and go with a...

    Weird Issue I Can't Solve

    Hi all! I currently have a prospector 500 portable thats 7 months old with maybe 5 hours on it. Basically brand new so it should run fine. The issue I'm having is that just by turning on the vac the floats in the waste tank are closing and cutting off my suction. Normally I would just take out...

    Steamway vs El Diablo

    Hi all, Still trying to sort out how to restart a business with my new bosses and I'm trying to decide between an El Diablo tm or a Steamway Avalanche. Both diesel fired with 100 gallon waste tanks. The Diablo looks and sounds impressive but I have a lot of years working on Steamways and can...
