Its only i thing 60 psi. Yeah it soaks the shit out of the carpet. You can easily go through 5 gallons in a room. Fine for machines with high lift and cfms. But the rug doc powerful they are not. Multiple drypasses are necessary with it. And fans.I'm going to assume it's the low flow/low pressure pump on the Rdoc.
Many years back we had a customer soak there carpet with a rug Doctor so badly it had the sour smell of standing water thay had to hire us to come suck it up deodorize and put fans on it for them lolIts only i thing 60 psi.

I read too fast, Shark is an approved vacuum.I read the Shaw residential warranty and nowhere in the warranty does it state that you can or can not use a CRB or rotary, unless I missed something. All the warranty says is that you or the carpet cleaner must use CRI approved cleaning equipment, methods and chemicals. When I venture over to the CRI site, navigate through endless links, opening a dozen windows and look at the approved equipment and systems, I find everything from the Rug Doctor to compound cleaning, to CRB, rotary extraction and encap. So what I’ve taken from this is that they really DGAF what you use as long as it follows the CRI standards, for whatever that’s worth.
They also state that you need to use a CRI approved vacuum. When I look at the approved vacuums I notice that a lot of what is available to consumers is not on the list. Does this automatically mean that Ms.Nylon Tipbloom has voided her warranty a week after installation because she vacuumed with her Dyson or Shark? And if that is the case, why does anyone care if a CRB, 175 or RE is used since the warranty is voided?
At the end of the day do we really care? I guess we should because of the warranty.This could go on for years. Is there an approved RE that isn't proprietary?So universally the bottom line is... if it's a CRI approved rotary it's ok right?
I love this statement when I wasWhen I was a IICRC Master Cleaner and Certified Firm I was never asked what chems or equipment I was going to use on warrantee work sent my way. As a matter of fact we have never had any CRI approved equipment or chems on our vans in 23 years of business. I don't believe that we have ever harmed a carpet in a residential setting, but I've done a few patches in rentals because the iron reacted with our Red Out and whatever else the resident through at the stain before I got there. I don't think anyone needs to worry about proper rotary equipment use and voiding warrantees unless the goods scream test in a closet first. Carry on good men!
Actually I was a card carrying member for MANY YEARS until they changed the requirements for retaining Master status. The IICRC'S greed made me reconsider my position. Years later they sent me an apology letter saying that we are reinstating your Master certs and giving me a free year of membership, <in my best Ozzy man reviews voice> yeah nah they can suck it now destination termination!I love this statement when I was
I was also until I stop paying for I didn't know you could lose knowledge once you don't pay a bill lol to say I know
