    Quality Ball Valve

Other ball valve's handles would always eventually break on me. This one, has a stainless steel handle and is solid. I have dragged...

    Northstar burner

    Just bought a van set up for a family member to start a cleaning biz. Truckmount runs good, but doesn't have any HX or heater. I think the guy might have kept or sold the heater to someone else. This family member lives 10 minutes from Northern Tool. To me it seems logical to get the diesel...

    New cards: borrowed an ideal

    Being a big kid, I've always thought it would be cool if I had a cartoon me. When I saw Rob's cartoon figure, I knew I had to go find somebody to make my dad and me into a cartoon for our new cards. I love how this card turned out, what do you think?

    Did anyone take a picture or maybe Scott will be kind enough to elaborate again? Scott W posted a great way to calculate how much sauce to put into the hydroforce. I had a screenshot of it, but when I got a new phone I lost it. It was something like 8 + 1 plus plus how many quarts your...

    100 lb keg

    Just a little tip for other carpet cleaners out there. I found out recently my supplier sells 100 lb kegs of powder. As most of you know, the more you buy the better deal you get. Ask your supplier about it and they have it too!

    Masterblend products near Atlanta

    I have been using PCX by kleenrite as my extraction rinse for a while now. I really appreciate how it leaves the carpet soft and has an anti resoiling agent in it.

    I've been looking for a better way to apply pre-spray other than my backpack sprayer. I'd really like something with some better pressure. I like the look of the penguin emporior 300 but it is 659 dollars and that seems a lil high for what it is. I've searched and searched for other sprayers...

    Stocking up

    I've always been a fan of buying in bulk, but my dad would want to buy a gallon here a gallon there. Drove me crazy. Luckily once we expanded, stocking up made more sense. Glad to be ready for the Christmas rush. Sent from my XT1254 using TMF Forums mobile app
