    8.5 inches of mercury, so mercury weights 13.5 more than water 8.5x13.5=114.75 inches of light. too low in my opinion, it has to be at least 135 and above.

    In-line booster's effect on lift?

    for i booster i would not recomen the 8.4 motors, because you need a motor with higher lift and a little less cfm. the booster is already boosting cfm, but no lift, so you need a booster with more lift. the 84 from electro motor is the best option

    Sticky VCT?

    Even the best neutral cleaner in the world will leave a residue. the ph neutral soesn mean it won't leave a residue, it means it won't harm the shine of the floor. scrubbing with vinegar will help. the other situation is a little of glue coming from the tile.

    Removing scuff marks from VCT Floor

    let me make it easier for you. use a spray buff, and spray directly to each scuff, and then wait around 30 sec to 45 sec, use the center piece of the white polisher pad, 2 scrubs and gone, dry it with a rag. those scuff marks gets hard to remove when they are 3 days and older
