Can anyone post a picture of their valves and how they have them hooked on?
Did you hook yours onto your hose or wand? How and why?
Thank you

It's hard when you dont have it in front of you and you cant picture on your head how the fittings arrange!!
That's a rookie for you I guess. Just not used to seeing one on my hose.
But I think like aussie said I'm going to love it.
I will be back home shortly and I'm going to bust out the tape and slap that baby on.
Thank you jim and aussie!

To the hose so you can use it with all tools. Take the fitting off the end of your hose, put the valve on, then put the fitting on the valve.

Actually, if you put the valve on the wand it will be 100% useless.

What the carpet cleaning hades am I seeing here ...
Mini hydroforce, for high rise guys. Old picture newer hydroforce is even smaller.

No need for anything, but the ball valve for on and off. Stores nicely during transport. All the chems for jobs up to the 42nd floor I need are in that bucket with the hydroforce. Less is more.

Encap those ones all day carpet doesnt look very dirty
You'd be amazed, lol. I used to work in the Plaza building (not too far from where Jim's set up in that pic) and in the main Wachovia building down the road. And some people in Charlotte are just flat-out DISGUSTING.

Just like that. You don't need heat shield if you're not dealing with a fuel induced heat. Also , take a look at color of the ball valve. It's not about the color, it's the quality which represents.

The Parker ones are the best I've used.
