    Looking for average time to strip vct with the aid of an auto scrubber.

    I'm trying to figure out some costs for strip and wax and i'm looking to see how many square feet of vct tile you can strip per hour using an auto scrubber to pick up the slurry and rinse with. This would include edging and cleaning the vinyl base.

    How should we color seal small tiles?

    We have a client with a huge bathroom with tiny tiles. She has a steam shower that has had some grout repair that doesn't match very well. She wants us to color seal that shower and maybe the huge floor if we can't get the floor clean and even. She doesn't seem concerned with the price because...

    Where is Turbo Man

    I just bought that kit, but it's not too helpful. The brushes are all the same width, too wide for most grout joints. And the Brass fittings on top are straight and short so you can't get up to the edges. When I watch Turbo Man his are on a 45 degree angle and i think a little longer so you get...

    2002 Chevy Express 3500 Misfire

    Have you replaced plugs, wires, & checked coil packs. Since our trucks run all day without moving there isn't enough air flow and the heat kills these parts quickly. The wires are toast after 1 or 2 years, plugs make it to about 50,000 miles, and Coil packs go periodically after 4-5 years. Not...

    Where is Turbo Man

    I see a lot of you tube videos with him using his color seal applicator but his website isn't working. Does anyone know where to buy his applicator or know of some really good quality color seal applicators. A good applicator will have a 45 degree angle spout, so we can get up to the walls and...

    These new fancy hose connectors?

    We use cool cuffs, they sell a starter set, everything you need from your truckmount to the wand. We put them on with silicone bathtub caulk to prevent them form loosening. They dont leak and are easy to put together and remove in cold weather. We've tried others they aren't as user friendly...

    vac hose in winter?

    We take about 50' (enough for the average house) off the reel in a figure eight pattern over our arm ( with practice it doesn't touch the ground and it uncoils easily) and carefully drag the rest up to the house. Another hint if you don't have hose cuffs yet get them, regular hose cuffs are...
