    Top 50 prespray comparison test

    For the record I put my money where my mouth was several times in my dealings with rob. If he wants to come out and explain that's cool, but he won't. And me, I'm just a troll

    I never had an issue with the switch. It's a 19" machine. But yeah they could have placed the switch in a better spot

    Rob you are not in the appearance business, you are in the cleaning business. People call you to clean carpet. Chris Howell is in the appearance business. People call chris because they want their carpet to look better, or different. But there is no money in carpet dyeing, but wait you offer a...

    It's not condescension, it's trying to protect people from false information that is borderline slanderous. Rob claims to be an industry leader and has a training school. It is his responsibility to perform his testing properly. It's also quite comical for someone (Rob) to be so critical of...

    Water as a rinse!?

    Is your tip 1:8 or 1:4? Are you topping the container off to a full 5 quarts or filling to the gallon line? (You are supposed to fill to a full five quarts for 6 scoops according to the directions) What sort of square footage do you get out of a 5 quart container? I get anywhere from 200-400...

    I cant exactly argue with that, but rob can at this point chose to perpetuate that sort of thought process or attempt to elevate it. If he is going to simply perpetuate this he might as well just go on a job with 50 trigger sprayers and divide a single room among them and then compare and be...

    Water as a rinse!?

    If that's true you are either running a massive operation which should easily cover this cost or you need to seriously look at your chemical usage and dilution ratios.

    You still aren't understanding. It would be a full time job to complete a comprehensive study. Doing what you are currently doing is pissing in the wind. Using a "clear water," "acid rinse," and "alkaline rinse" basically undermines your entire study implying all water and rinses are created...

    Top 50 prespray comparison test

    While you are certainly making a noble effort it doesn't seem you realize what you are trying to undertake, and just how large of a study you would need to conduct in order to produce any sort of truly meaningful data. It's really not as simple as people think.

    Heavily worn commercial glue down carpet

    Pretty much 100% of office chairs and office chair set ups ruin carpet. The mats will only save the carpet if the mat and carpet is cleaned regularly. And even then the perimeter around the mat will be more heavily worn. Unfortunately this sounds like replacement would have been the proper...

    TMF CRB? Any good?

    Wait for Black Friday then if you can. I bought my 20" on sale. I personally wouldn't mess with the 10" sure you can use it on stairs but I can also use my $16 drill brush on stairs (with a makita drill I already have)

    CRB, bonzer or rotary???

    If you are doing lots of commercial carpet invest in the zipper. The bonzer looks like a toy next to the zipper. But I am really not sure why people try to use them in residential settings, it seems like it would be hard to navigate and get edging done properly (but I fully admit to not cleaning...

    CRB, bonzer or rotary???

    CRB. I'm selling my rotary because with a proper vacuum, pretreat and scrub (with crb or any other mechanical means of agitation) I don't need the rotary. But I also don't deal with many disgusting carpets like I see posted

    TMF CRB? Any good?

    The brush pro is the highest quality, longest lasting, and most moisture resistant. Yes it is also the most expensive. The question is do you want a machine that will last without the need for repairs, or do you want a machine that has the same issues you will see if you do a thorough search...

    Fill my jugs of carpet powders to the top ! i feel cheated

    1. Chemical cost is so small relative to all other costs 2. It's sold and shipped by weight so if they fill it further it will cost more for the chemical and to ship 3. If you fill it to the brim you can't fit and store a scoop inside 4. Powders can compact, unlike liquids 5. Does it really...

    Anyone interested in a rotovac 360xL? Make me an offer. It's about three years old, used no more than 20 hours I'd say. I will post pictures tomorrow. I'll probably be selling some other stuff as well

    Printer toner help!

    I have done one of these jobs. So take his for what it is. I vacuumed very thoroughly without rubbing he carpet or using the brush roll (use a vacuum attachment with a brush and be very very gentle). Then once I got all I could get I went with the vacuum normally. I couldn't see the toner after...
