    Rob, I posted my Amtex unit for sale and Johnny Bravo has trashed the whole thread! Why is he even allowed to post on your forum? Can you either remove my post or leave my post and remove all comments?

    Amtex inferno 500 or sapphire 370ss

    If I had it all over to do again, what would I do? I would not buy from Ben or Nick, nothing personal they are both too busy to take care of their customers. I bought a used Amtex that turned out to be a great boat anchor. With Ben's help we were unable to solve the problem of my temperature...

    Good Morning Matt, I'm getting ready to head to Walmart for another adventurous day! I have still not purchased a wand, and after after texting Ben twice, never heard back from him. The problem I run into is any wand that has four jets uses a V-jet valve and they all come with 2 gpm valves and...

    What's the best color for a bed liner ?

    You guys that like the black must be younger then me. One reason I like the white color is that it is much easier so see in the truck at night, the white is brighter and reflex the lights better so maybe 45 and over should go with white. I did just want to point a few things out. The best way to...

    What should I order from my Cimex?

    I am getting ready to order some pads/brushes for my Cimex. When I bought it, my goal was 100% commercial carpet but I would like to try it on the rugs. What should I always have in stock for my Cimex and what do I never need to order? Chuck

    Help me pick out a New Wand

    Thanks for the feed back. First off, I did not know they make a swivel wand! That is very interesting and I am sure I would love using one. Many of you guys know of my issues I have been having with my Inferno, I believe that with everyone's help, including Matt and Ben those issues are all...

    Help me pick out a New Wand

    I am in the market for a new wand. I have a 6 jet evolution that when purchased was set at 12 gpm, I have it reduced to 6 gpm for for my Inferno but Ben told me I should be using a 3 gpm. While I do enjoy the evolution I really want to get something made for my TM. I am ok with a two jet, I...

    Hotel Bidding Help Needed

    Well the owner was not there at the meeting time, I believe I am going to tell him $20 with the cimex and let him talk me down to $18. I would really want the business but I just do not want to become the budget cleaner.

    Hotel Bidding Help Needed

    I just took a call from a 125 room two story hotel, I am going down later today to talk about a price. It is a old, budget priced, hotel that does not get the best of online reviews. I can bid using a Cimex or my HWE. What prices do you guys charge? Chuck

    What the best way to learn rug cleaning, from home?

    I need to learn a whole lot more about cleaning rugs! I will not be able to attend a class in some far off city. I have looked for videos online and watched a few but is there a great website or DVD program. I have looked over The Rug Chick's website and see she offers a online course. What has...

    Amtex Issues

    I should have said, I will try to find smaller jets before I buy a wand, last time I looked I could only find 1.5 no 1.0

    Amtex Issues

    Sorry it has taken so long for me to respond, it took me a day just to read 8 pages of entertaining posts! Ben called, and said he would work with me till we get all the issues resolved. Currently, until I get my new temp gauge we set up the dema valve to be open all the time and used the check...

    Amtex Issues

    Sorry Guys, I sort of hate to post about things I could call Ben about but I have called Ben so often he is getting short with me. Bottom line I bought a used Amtex based on all the positive things that were said about Ben and Amtex, maybe mine is a lemon, but something goes wrong with it every...

    Why does my temperature gauge keep breaking?

    If you do a search on ebay there are several switches for about $70 just not sure if this is the same on Ben sales, I think he charged me $50 for the last one. I found some that ran from 180 to 350 degrees, is there any reason these would be better? Price is in the same range.

    Why does my temperature gauge keep breaking?

    To answer the question, my gauge does not move from the left, I think it's 140 degrees but the water is coming out at 200+. Trying to figure out my options, hope the link works...

    Why does my temperature gauge keep breaking?

    I agree with both you guys! I will get two gauges, the last hose I bought I got two that way if it blows I'll be back in business in a few minutes but it isn't right having to carry these kind of repair parts Sent from my iPhone using TMF Forums

    Why does my temperature gauge keep breaking?

    Actually yes my dema valve opens and dumps into the fresh tank through a 3/8" hose, Ben was suppose to send me a valve be he never did. I am using my cut off valve at the dema to slow down the amount of water Sent from my iPhone using TMF Forums

    Why does my temperature gauge keep breaking?

    I have been having some issues with mine I am sure some is user error, just not fully understanding. I have been having heating issues, I have been unable to hold constant heat at the wand when the temp gauge is working. The water will hit 230 and drop all the way to 130 in 5 seconds, then it...

    Why does my temperature gauge keep breaking?

    When I bought my Inferno the temp gauge was broke. Once I got one from Ben and installed it, it also broke with less then 10 hours on it. Are this just cheap china crap or do my machine have yet another bigger problem? I know these gauges have a name, what is it and can I get one a Grainger? Chuck
