    Hey Ara, I have a 405 that will not shut off when the float vlave is up. I think there is a problem with the microswitch. I found one laying on the floor of the van. Is there a diagram any where you know of so I can see where a new microswitch goes in this float assembly. Does it have to be...

    Performer 405 Microprocessor SWAP

    The micros are a pain in the butt. I have 3 of them. I have also looked at having the conversion done. Same prices you are getting, I was also quoted. I decided with one of them to have the board replaced, it was around 1000.00 to have it done and now it has no issues. Have you considered that yet?

    Advice on new Truck Mount

    Take your time and look around, don't get into a rush. Test everything you look at. You can usually find better deals in the fall. I found several blazers set up in vans and bought them. As the units paid themselves off, I bought bigger machines, with more heat and vacuum. I still have my...

    US Products ultimate

    I have several, in fact 6 ultimate pbIII's and I actually don't like any of them. I have several older units, 5 years old and 3 that are 18 months old. We experience the same loss of heat issue with ours. US products people have an arrogant attitude about their customers. I also have 6 ozone...

    Prespray Additives

    I have to agree here with Kevin. Why does everyone want to boost everything? If it doesn't work why buy it? Move on to another product.

    Irritated & Frustrated

    I wasn't impressed with cobb's "dynachem powermax" either. It does nothing for me at all. I agree that there are tons of products out there. the chemicals manufacturers are always "up selling" to us. How else can they make money. then you figure out that many of these products are made by...

    Upholstery tool

    I decided to purchase a new upholstery tool and wanted to try on of the sapphire's. Well I did and I have to say, I really like it. It is a nice tool to work with and does a great job on upholstery. I have used it about half a dozen times now and I am convinced that this tool is right up there...

    PC Legend blowing water from exhaust

    What area of the country do you live in? If it is cold outside, make sure your van is kept heated at all times. Park it inside and put a heater in it. Now, it may also be that the water coming out of the exhaust is from the normal condensation. I would suggest you try and judge how much water is...

    My first real test carpet cleaning

    170 sq ft in an hour? Ouch... I am curious, did you use any defoamer? Most of the time when a homeowner uses a rug doctor they will leave a residual in the carpet since the rug doctor will not rinse out the product completely. As you progress and learn more a nice defoamer will help save your...

    got a black light

    My nose is burned out, so if I smell something it will be really bad. If I do detect something, I discuss it with the customer then I ask for permission to bring in my light to search for the source.

    Can't you create what you want in word? It is your business, you should have an idea of what you would like on an invoice, create one and work with it until you are satisfied that it has all of the information unique to your business. Then take it to a local printer and ask them to make you a 2...

    got a black light

    Wow talk about way off track here..geez. To answer your original question, I have several of the "big black lights" I also have several of the smaller tube style lights. Can it be used in daylight? No silly none of them can. You still need to reduce the volume of light in the room. I find that I...

    Mytee's Escape™ Plus ETM - Electric Truckmount

    Nice John. thanks for taking the next step in truckmounts. I have been waiting for someone to do this for over 4 years now. I must say that I did get some sticker shock from the price though. I was hoping for a better price point on an electric unit.

    Apartment carpet cleaning pricing

    Wow, those are cheap prices. How do you survive? Just remember this, property managers are the worst. They pay slow, and are not loyal to anyone. So why is this job up for a bid? Maybe the last guy was sick of them? Ask how many other companies have worked for them in the past. take a look at a...

    Valuating a janitorial company's worth to potentially buy out

    The margins in janitorial work are great. You should expect over 48 percent. Not to knock Steve, but i would seek out a good accountant with business experience. Ask them to evaluate the business. You must consider the total picture. Now I don't want to rain on your parade but it will make a...

    If the carpet is super dirty, would scrubbing with a 175 after pre-spray make any difference?

    I use a 175 machine to scrub, always have great results. I have two words: carpet restoration. If it is that bad refer to those words and charge for it. You are not only cleaning but you are restoring the carpet. As you found out it takes additional time, chemistry, and equipment, so base your...
