    New Rug Shop Ideas Please

    I'm sorry if this has been discussed before, but I've been gone for a while. If you could build (or have built) a proper rug washing shop, how would you set it up?

    Does anyone recognize this wand?

    So the jets are dripping and my local repair shop doesn't have the correct rebuild kit to fix the valve. There are no identifying labels or markings so I don't know who to order from. Can you help? Thanks!

    Why is my wand leaving stripes?!?!

    I was cleaning a low profile berber last night and my wand was leaving stripes. Was using a 4 jet Sapphire Scientific with a Teflon glide. The psi on the TM was about 350 and I checked to be sure the basket in the waste tank was cleaned out. Any other ideas? Thanks in advance!

    when 200 feet isn't enough...

    I've got just 200' of line and 2" vac hose for my TM and need more for an upcoming job. Is there a downside to running an additional 50' of 1.5" vac hose to get me where I need to be? Thanks in advance!
