    I’m in the same boat as far as distributors go. I got mine to 2600 without taking anything off. Do your rpms seem to run consistent without the limiter? I might take mine off and see how it goes, I could tell a huge difference running at 2600

    I have a governor on mine which limits throttle all of the machines do as far as I know. I just didn’t realize mine was so far off. I’m sure it was gradual over time and I just got used to the way it was sounding. I’ve been playing with it and got it to come up some but just wanted to make sure...

    Shower tile light grey grout turning black where floor and walls meet

    That was my initial thought. She has attempted to clean and scrub it off with no luck using cleaning agents for such. From my experience, if it were mold, this should have taken care of it or at least improved it.

    Shower tile light grey grout turning black where floor and walls meet

    Had a customer call me today and tell me this is happening in her shower. She said it seems to be spreading along where the floor and walls meet. She said it is not coming out onto the rest of the floor. She said she has had the tile professionally cleaned by two different companies with no...

    Mytee spinner

    I have a 12 in spinner and have been using size 1501 jets. I was thinking about changing to 1502. I realize 1502 would be less likely to clog, but was wondering if any of you guys have a preference on which does the better cleaning job. Thanks so much, any input greatly appreciated

    How Much Work Do You Do By Yourself?

    I agree, I find it much more efficient with a helper that can be setting up/rolling up the van while you are inside selling to the customer. A helper can also have a room ready when you get there so you never have to stop cleaning. No idle time with the machine running. I would always prefer...

    How do you guys pay your cleaning technicians?

    I now pay my helper by the hour. He has been working with me for almost two years. I finally let him go out by him self and complete a couple of jobs. Did follow up calls with the customers and they were very satisfied. Just wondering if you guys pay by the hour or is it more percentage? If...

    Buying new need advice Prochem apex or Sapphire 570ss

    I agree with you about staying with what works. Why fix something that isnt broken? I have taken a look at the sapphire 570ss and it does a few things the prochem doesnt. It generates higher pressure for hard surface cleaning so more gpm while maintaining heat. Both machines are powered by a...

    Only getting 130 degrees right now my jets?? What you guys getting? Prochem Performer 405

    Have you thought to replace your heat by-pass on the front of the machine? If that has been over tightened too many times it may be leaking. Something simple to check before spending alot of money on other things.
