    I've narrowed it down to Air Hog VS The CFX5 help me decide...

    Similarities: Both have two vacs, two cords, the option to pump out or suck to mother ship (thanks for that term Dex) both weigh less than 45 lbs Differences: The color if that matters, the CFX has a handle and can be carried up stairs with one hand the Mytee does not and cannot be carried...

    CET winner...

    Thanks for the new name/catagory Rob. My CET tool of the day was a CX15. I did a day care in 2.5 hours and thought it would take up to 6 hours. That thing takes a little getting used to but after the second area I was flying. The first area was almost dry when I was done too. BTW I...

    I got a new kickazz chemical combo...

    I have been using Flex powder with Citrasolv and just this last week started using Flex Fire as my rinse. They are a great combo or synergistic couple of chemicals. I was impressed with Flex powder but when I added Flex Fire to the arsenal I am even more impressed.

    What are my risks in volunteering in a flood

    So this area near my house had a flash flood. I know I could help suck up/out some water. If I do that as a volunteer am I liable for any subsequent damage i.e. mold? If so am I covered under my insurance because I was not getting paid? Any thing I am not asking that I should know please...

    Teach me your OSR Jedi ways

    Which OSR type product do you use/like most? How much per gallon? How hot of water do you mix it with? Now the most important question of all. How far do you spread it? Or how much area would you pour a gallon on?

    Post a funny story.

    The "post a funny picture" thread is so successful I thought we should have a funny or ridiculous story thread. I'll start with a short one... I had a lady that wanted me to come back and re-attach her hose because I took it off to attach my hose. This lady was about 35 years old and had a...

    So my daughter is getting new carpet installed and I need to know what to look for so I look smart. I did take a carpet repair class over ten years ago and all I remember is enough to come here and ask your opinions. Like should they bring the carpet a day early to acclimate it? Do even small...

    I was on a job today and ran out of tile master (nobody panic I have a jar back at the shop) so the second half of this job I used up some old prespray and it cleaned just as good as the tile master. Anyone else use carpet prespay for tile/grout? I mean if you think about it it's the same...

    What's that mirror called that you mount on your bumper?

    I have seen mirrors mounted on the front left bumper so a guy can see how close he is to something with his front right bumper but I can't find it online anywhere. Does anyone know what it is called exactly or maybe even have a link? Thanks.

    I owe TCS and apology

    So a while back I had a bad experience with a man I shall not name, and I erroneously thought he owned and operated TCS. I was corrected and all of the malice I had and expressed towards TCS is what I am publicly apologizing for. Please forgive me if I mislead any of you and gave cause for...

    Let's talk about heat exchangers

    A while ago I posted about getting a heat exchanger TM because I was sick of paying the kerosene mafia every month. Well I got one (a Prochem Apex GTX) and I love it. However it takes a lot getting used to waiting so long for hot water. My questions for you all is what heat x TM do you have...

    I got a new prochem and thought I'd come on here and ask a few questions...

    First of many... how do you guys keep the exhaust from blowing right at you (and stinking up your clothes) while you're in front of the machine. Some pictures would help.

    What bolts for hose reel through van floor?

    I am putting an electric reel in my new van. The bolts I had it bolted down with in my old van were rusted nearly solid. I had to grind them off. That took a lot of extra time. Any way does anyone know what bolts to use? i.e. grade and size?

    Report on two new products. New to me anyway.

    So I know I like it when you guys get new stuff and come on here and tell about it so I thought I would do just that. I got a sample of Preload 5 from the TMF booth. I use a 7 qt. inline sprayer that draws 4-1. In that I put one cup of Preload and I got to say it works great. I got a big...
