    White carpet yellowed

    There is a white Carpet with a yellow area. I believe it is from the backing of a throw rug but not sure. I have cleaned the area twice and both times comes out perfectly white. After drying it is yellow again. Thoughts?

    Buying this vortex yay or nay

    We have had our vortex for 5+ years. We also own a Butler van. Here are my thoughts. The unit is awesome. Tons of power, pretty darn reliable, Plenty of space to take anything you want to the job. Our customers definitely remember it and ask for it at times. When my dad and me both go out and we...

    Chemical through machine???

    We have 2-4 one gallon jugs hooked up on our vortex. We open up which one we need depending on job. I've used just about everything in them. I'm constantly trying new things.

    Im considering new equipment.

    I guess they can be pricey. But I think it's worth it. My dad went out on a limb in 79 and bought a used butler. His first tm. We've had one white magic in the past and a vortex that we still have. Other than that it's all butler. We will probably buy another in the coming year.

    Im considering new equipment.

    Just my opinion. I'd find a nice used Butler. Easy as cake to understand and just as easy to work on.

    Butler truck mounts is coming Tuesday - Your thoughts on them?

    We love Butlers. We are on our 4th one and if you want a easy to use, easy to work on, durable TM it's the one I would suggest. I'm sure there are other great one's out there but I love ours.

    OK this means WAR!!! Whose with me??

    Here is my experience with a (at the time $6.99 a room) outfit. In 1995 I was just married and moved to Fla. I had a portable unit with me but couldn't find work so I hired on as a contractor with this kind of company. They hire guys from the street and give them portable units and maybe 2...

    Hello from Virginia

    He's been "helping" since 13. Whether he or his sister wants it when their older, who knows, but at least they can learn some work ethic at a good age.

    Rx-20 or Rotovac 360i ?

    I've never used the T Rex but I own a couple RX20 and RV 360. I like them both. However I tend to use the RX20 in most "tough to clean" situations. I'd prefer the RX20 almost across the board but the sheer pain in the ass weight kills me. I just hate pulling it out of the truck. The 360 is a...
